How to Bet on 'Game of Thrones' With Your Friends How to Bet on 'Game of Thrones' With Your Friends

I’m a big fan of gambling. I’m not one to lose massive amounts of money playing poker in Vegas, but I do love March Madness brackets, fantasy sports, and really anything else where I can wager a small amount of cash in order to win bracing rights over my friends, which is why I’ve been on the hunt for some ways to…

Do This Instead of Saying 'Sorry' All The Time Do This Instead of Saying 'Sorry' All The Time

In an average day, I probably say “I’m sorry” to at least twenty people. I’m sorry I decided to go down these stairs at the same time you did, I’m sorry you forgot to email me and now this report is late, I’m sorry this other thing entirely out of my control happened and now plans have changed.

Help Your Cat Deal With Separation Anxiety With This Website Help Your Cat Deal With Separation Anxiety With This Website

My neighbor’s cat Felix is one of the cutest, cuddliest fireballs I know. Unlike my last cat that would prefer I left her alone all day in my apartment/her castle, Felix is the exact opposite: he hates being left alone during the day. That means our pal Felix will sit at the front door and howl, anxiously awaiting his…

Quickly Convert Your Written Notes Into Digital Ones With This App Quickly Convert Your Written Notes Into Digital Ones With This App

When it comes to taking notes, I’m still very much old school. I have a small notebook always in my purse, and I really like taking paper notes when I’m at press events, wine tastings, or just trying to make vacation plans with friends. While I really enjoy taking those paper notes, there always comes a time where I…

Quickly Find a Nearby Scooter Using This App Quickly Find a Nearby Scooter Using This App

Double Check the Requirements For Traveling to a Country Before You Embark on Your Summer Travels Double Check the Requirements For Traveling to a Country Before You Embark on Your Summer Travels

Learn Another Language While Watching Netflix Using This App Learn Another Language While Watching Netflix Using This App

Learning a new language is hard. After eight years of French, I was an abysmal failure at the language until I spent a month in the country using it regularly. There’s something about seeing words and phrases used in context that makes them a lot easier to understand than just reading them in a textbook.

Always Send a Thank You Note After a Job Interview Always Send a Thank You Note After a Job Interview

A few years ago I started sending “Nice to Meet You!” emails to people after they had given me a card at a networking event. Sending a note gets their email added to my inbox so I can find it weeks or years later, but I’ve also always thought it was also just a classy move. Sending an email says that you appreciate…

How to Control Who Can Add You to WhatsApp Group Chats How to Control Who Can Add You to WhatsApp Group Chats

A few years ago, I went on a business trip to Scotland with journalists from other parts of the world. On the trip, we used WhatsApp to stay connected, which encouraged the participants to stay in touch via WhatsApp as well, especially in the form of group chats.

Preview Your Google Search Results Using This Browser Extension Preview Your Google Search Results Using This Browser Extension

Without fail, the first link in my Google Search results is never the thing I’m actually looking for. As a result, my typical move is to open all of the search results that look like they might potentially be a decent fit into their own tabs on my browser and then go through them one by one.
