Well, it’s been exactly one month since I’ve posted anything here from my most recent events, family visits, and work changes that have occurred for myself.
And now it’s time to share.
On the 6th of September, I showcased my photography for the first time with RAW Phoenix. The showcase was brilliant and unique, the multitude of artists and creatives held together in one room to present themselves and network was something I never dreamed I’d be able to be a part of.
Positive: The kind creatives whom wanted to collaborate and truly appreciated the work I did.
Negative: I was unable to be present for the opening of the doors and initial set-up, so my parents presented for me (which was obvi cute) but I hate that my shift was shitty and I ended up having to stay on the unit.
Following, the next few days my parents stayed in town to visit with me and simply relax. We explored some areas downtown, watched some movies, met with family we hadn’t seen in such a long time. There was also a sports game on that Sunday, so I naturally watched that but don’t recall any bit of it.
Once my parents left from their visit, I literally slept for an entire day and a half to recover due to the work, family visiting, and event.
As a whole I’m beyond thankful for the opportunity to present myself in the showcase. It not only allowed me to present my creative self in a way that I’ve never done before, but it’s helping me to refine and edit that expression. Hindsight, there are a multitude of changes I’d make to that event, and now I can take all those notes and use them to press forward.
