Thrifted: Reflecting On 2017 And My Wish For 2018

Reflecting on 2017 and my wish for 2018 -- 2017 was a year full of disappointments and sadness for more than just myself. It has been the most gloomy year in history and I'm glad we can put it behind us. 2018 is going to be our best year yet! | gutterfashion.com

Looking back at 2017, I can honestly say that it was the worst year in recent memory, no contest. From the moment we rung in the new year, there was an air of dread and sadness hanging over most of us. We were starting an awful, four year stretch of despair thanks to our new “president.” And things didn’t get better, at least not in my eyes. Every group of minorities suffered in 2017, including ones that I myself am a part of.

In a personal way, though, I did have a few victories take place. My first major milestone was the one year anniversary of Gutterfashion. I surprised myself because I didn’t think I’d be able to do it. You always dream of the day when you get to celebrate one year or even your second, but it always seems so far away. Because I stuck with it and never gave up, I had the chance to meet a ton of super talented creatives, with whom I’ve created a lot of lasting friendships.

As we moved further into the year, I let go of a big burden in my life. Everyone has a job they don’t like, one that they dread waking up to every day. If you’ve never experienced this, consider yourself very privileged as it is not a fun experience. The day I walked into my job and decided I had enough, nothing seemed different. It was a day like any other, maybe one that was even a bit better. But near the end of the day, something had come over me. I was dealing with a lot and everything just came to a head. I made the rash decision to leave and at the time, I had no other job to head into. The universe was looking out for me, I guess; I got a call a few days later to interview for the job I’m currently at. The rest, shall we say, is wonderful history.

In 2018, I will be celebrating Gutterfashion’s two year anniversary. My wish is that I stick with it through thick and thin. A lot of projects are in the works, including our transition to YouTube where we’ll be posting vlogs and bonus content. We hope that you continue to stick with us and support us like you always have. We wouldn’t be where we are without you!

On a grander scale, I hope that the world and our economic climate changes for the better. It’s going to be a long, hard battle, but I’m looking forward to wrongs being righted and steps in the right direction towards a better future. I want all of my friends to have the safety and happiness that many others do. Here’s to 2018, a new year with hope and promise.

    What a lovely wish for the new year. Congrats on the courage to leave a job that wasn’t right for you to find one that was. And Happy 2-Year Anniversary to Gutterfashion! That *is* an accomplishment!

    And Happy New Year to you.
