    THE FRONT PAGES eDitors note

    Its January again which means snow, new classes, New Years resolutions, and chances to start anew. Im sure a lot of that will be finished and melted away by spring, but for now its time to embrace change.

    Taking on new initiatives is good for the body and mind, no matter when it hap-pens. Whats important is that you take on new projects, look for new career paths, and enrol in new classes that youre inter-ested in. Dont jump into new endeavors just because its January 1st, unless you want to become a failed resolution story.

    Its also a good time to reassess and look internally. Not happy with your classes? Switch your minor. Boss driving you nuts? Have a chat and look at other positions, or check job boards for new opportunities. Having trouble with the job hunt? Check

    New yeAr, New BeGINNINGS

    our site for advice and go to a career counsellor to have your resum examined. Attracted to your coworker? Well... you might be on your own on that one.

    In any case, take some time for you and start the year off right. Once spring hits and the year is in full-swing, youll thank yourself for taking a moment to find out what you really want.

    Happy reading!
