It’s been sort of a shit week.
A 70-hour kind of work week (dropped by the office today, will probably go back out tomorrow).
Production week. Press week. Deadlines.
Compounding the last several weeks, which have not really afforded me any alone time to recharge and be:
- Two weekends ago, I stayed up at the Windsor Boutique Hotel in AVL. I brought my mom, which was an awesome move just because she’s never been able to see AVL outside of a day trip or two. Not to mention the Windsor is such an incredible property. Again, not like I could afford it normally on my salary, but God—what a cool place.
- Then, a busy week a work. The run-up to press week. Seemed like there was a lot more writing on my plate this issue: On the TOWN social pages, the Windsor feature, a piece on Clemson head football coach Dabo Swinney (for our Charitable Giving Awards feature), Second Glance art spotlight. Plus editing for another good chunk of the magazine. I guess that doesn’t sound like too much, but the reality is the final product (let’s say, the neighborhood of 2000-2500 words total) is representative of only about 1/5 of what’s written.
- This past weekend was Fall for Greenville. I spent far too much time downtown in the masses—shooting for bh&bc, for TOWN (exciting development on that front), seeing people, mingling, etc. And I suppose it was a taste of how larger cities are on a daily basis—the cities with large tourist populations. Large, slowly shuffling herds of people who marvel at every damn thing they see. Who leave children unattended. General shit show on top of country-bumpkin bullshit.
And then, production week.
I guess, all this to say that there’s a big photo dump of the past few weeks incoming.
