The reasons for the elders' mixed feelings about the New Year, I think, come down to the following two ones. On the one hand, celebrating the New Year means a great expense to them. On the other hand, the fleeting time exerts considerable pressure on them. Kids may say excitedly that they begin another year in their life after the New Year; while, elders may sigh, "Well, I've become one year older!"For the kids, the New Year means that they are making progress in the most brilliant part of their life. On the contrary, for the elders, it's an indication that they are sliding into their declining years.

Job Hopping, Yes or No?
It seems that employers nowadays are more open to job hoppers as they realize that job hopping may be conducive to them in refreshing organizational cultures and values. However, some employers are reluctant to hire those job hoppers on the grounds that the latter needs at least four to six years to demonstrate progress to their employers and therefore, job hoppers who served in a company for less than that duration will do no good to both their present and next employer. For those who are struggling for something new, they should not feel guilty about job hopping, but they should figure out what kind of job they really want before the final decision is made.
The commonly accepted wisdom is that flexibility means adapting well to various circumstances and it should be highly valued. In particular, venturing in new settings is not detrimental to personal characters in one's early life. Job hopping will broaden one's experience, escalate one's knowledge and enrich one's life. Additionally, job hopping may inspire smart decisions in choosing ideal jobs in the future. Apart from a few who are definite towards their career life at a younger age, most young adults, especially those who have just stepped out of the ivory tower, are still not quite clear about their future. Job hopping will without doubt help new graduates find their true self and the direction of their careers. Furthermore, those loyal employees do have strengths such as commitment, devotion and credibility to the job, but they also bear higher risk of job burnout, mid?career crisis sabotage and severe career bottleneck, which may render stagnancy or even loss to the company.
There is no question that switching jobs should be done on the basis that the employee has really acquired skills in his or her present post and needs to further his or her knowledge or values. For those who frequently change jobs because they feel insecure or are sunk in apathy about the job or have difficulty in addressing relationships with colleagues, it deserves reflection.
