January Reflection


January's reflection post is coming a day early because, well, it's my party and I'll cry if I want to it's my blog and I'll write about whatever when I want to. January has been A Month™ to say the least. The beginning of a new year can either go one of two ways. This year, from the start, was going to be bittersweet. Collectively, 2016 was a pretty awful year. Of course there are going to be people who had great years, but I'd say for a great deal of humanity, 2016 was not kind. 2017 was a beacon of hope for a better year.


But now we're only a month into 2017 and everything is starting to seem bleak. The past two weeks have felt like they've been eons long. It seems like for everything terrible, unspeakable thing that has happened, something good has followed, even if it's just the masses coming together to rally support.

I've addressed this on Twitter, but nothing has stretched formally onto my blog. Nothing will be discussed in detail, as I'm not a news source, but just as Leandra addressed in Man Repeller's post Man Repeller’s Role in Trump’s America this week, not addressing this and diving into spring trends and my favorite face masks just seemed wrong without some kind of acknowledgement.

January is my first month without school and the first month of my new job. It's also the start to the next four years of our lives and I think that that's a hell of a lot more important than what happened to me this month. Here's to a better February!
