Afterwards we went to get drinks at a very fancy and *private* bar called the Kelvin Club. It was rather strange, with ancient royal red carpet, low ceilings and oversized pool tables. I was exhausted and distracted, so it seemed like some sort of Twin Peaks dream world.
Thursday evening I was at The Alderman for drinks with Joe and his friends. I really had a good time but said one really overtly obnoxious thing that I regretted as soon as it left my lips, and then you like fixate on that and worry that those people you don't really know and are trying to make a good impression upon now think you're terrible. I was reassured multiple times which helped, but I just can't seemed to go too long without humiliating myself every once in a while. I guess it keeps me on my toes.
On the weekend, for once in my life, I was a little bummed that I had no night time plans. No place to go to get dressed up to or clutch onto a drink and laugh. I couldn't believe I was actually mildly disappointed that I didn't have any obligations to go anywhere in the evening. The only social thing I did on the weekend was on Saturday afternoon, where I went to Heather Lighton's house/studio to be photographed for an upcoming feature. I can honestly say it was the best experience I've had being photographed ever. Heather was a dream to work with, super professional and brilliant in giving direction, which is what I need - lest I have the exact same mildly sad expression for every photo. Anyway so I can't wait to share them! But I must! However I can show you the little outtake of me having a break with Heather's dog Neato ;) (Above!)
Saturday night, Sunday and Sunday night was work. Today was work. Tomorrow I have two interviews/photoshoots and a meeting in my studio, then, a fond farewell which I am equally looking forward to and dreading. Siiiiigh a thousand times!
Hope to be able to blog more this week. In the meantime I always am putting stuff up on Tumblr if you wanna follow me there too! www.minnagilligan.tumblr.com and y'all know I am ALWAYS on Instagram... @minnagilligan
