You made my day. Until now, I've just been dumping everything into "My Favorites". It never occurred to me to have a separate folder for each type of video. All I need now is a "Click and drag" function to move them from my favorites to each folder. Thanks for a great tip.

I lead a writing critique group for aspiring writers. In this group, everyone gives up to five minutes of critique for a submitted work. With our time constraints, we don't have time to make a comforting sandwich of compliments. Even with the people being critiqued volunteering and wanting criticism, it's tough to Read more

I went through most of college without a real idea of what I wanted to do. I started out with one idea, dumped that, had another idea, dumped that, then had another idea which kind of sort of got half-dumped and half-morphed into my now-career. I wish it had been a bit smoother than that, and some of these tips might Read more

I left a job where I was working with a good friend for a better paying job. The work itself was fine, and the people were nice, but I would go all day without saying more than "good morning" to my coworkers. There was no sense of camaraderie in the office, and that sense of isolation increased my already existing Read more

Making friends at university was also helpful to my schoolwork. The debilitating suspicion that you're an idiot goes away when you see that everyone — even that freaky-smart person — is fighting to get through their hardest course, and the stress of exams is relieved by being able to talk to people, before and after, Read more

It's not selfish, it's realistic. Moreover, gazing through the lenses of gender and race, because not everyone is treated the same, this is a tricky issue for women and minorities. They often get stuck with the scutt work and then when they avoid it/express concern about getting too much of it, they're Read more
