Light precedes every transition. Whether at the end of a tunnel, through a crack in the door or the flash of an idea, it is always there, heralding a new beginning. – Teresa Tsalaky

The progressive state of human cycle starts from infancy to childhood to adolescence to adulthood. The beauty is found in the phase of transition that happens in between. It is the shift to another chapter of life and the change that signals a new life is about to begin.

Transition, by definition, is the process or period of changing from one state or condition to another. Often times, it is what is normally disregarded that it becomes the unnoticed significant process of change. But the beauty of it all takes place in the most crucial period. Transformation or change only happens at the successful completion of transition and ends when the desirable state is reached. now, why am I talking about this? Because the magazine is in this crucial period right now.

The first time this start-up magazine was established was a whirlwind of ideas that come together to produce the first issue of the magazine. Of course, the first step was always the hardest. Editors had to formulate tons and tons of topics and themes every month that it had to undergo series of changes to produce a single issue in a month. But no one ever get tired to find a way out from a distressing state until a more organized and manageable plan came in the picture.

Sections for every article content were made to make it easier for both readers and editors to read and write articles of their subject of interest. Ranging from latest news and political issues, to bookworm’s content, to articles tackling about food, fitness and fun, to literary essentials and exceptional stories of successful people and authors, the magazine became a product of general interest but is more literary in nature. For quiet long years, the magazine has established its name and made a leap in the publishing company featuring the best-known authors, earning the trust of advertisers which is a considerable state of success. Now that it has climbed the ladder, it is about to take a major leap towards a greater light. Transition is once again in the procedure.

The editorial board and staff have decided to bring the magazine to a shift to fit in with the readers’ interest and to provide a more engaging output for everyone to enjoy. Thus, this issue is the first to name the Paperclips Magazine as entertainment magazine.

A desirable product of change does not come with a snap of a finger or a wink of an eye. It takes process and progress, constant movement until the desired end is achieved. It takes one step to see what one is capable of. This one brave act of embarking towards the unknown is just the beginning of the many more outputs that the magazine has to offer in the future.
