February Volume 1

Welcome to the coldest month everyone!

It’s hard to combat those New Year blues as the weather gets colder and harsher, but go meet friends, watch movies under the kotatsu or carve that powder on the slopes (can you tell I haven’t heard any snowboard slang since about 2006) and we’ll all make it through to the warmth, where we don’t have to wear our massive coats everywhere we go.

More importantly, we have another shout out for you! Both Head Editor and Publishing Manager jobs will be switching over in the next couple of months. If you would like to do either of these, or are just interested in finding out more, please email

This month, we have:
