Google can actually help you solve most of your own computer problems in relatively short period of time. Not only will you impress yourself, you’ll also save some money. 

Tip: there really isn’t any secret here; it just takes persistence and the belief that you are capable of figuring things out, even if they seem intimidating. Keep googling until you find something. Then google that until you find something else. If you really can’t find the answer after a while though, ask your nerdiest friend to help you out. We guarantee you that the first thing they do is…google it.


Preparing a basic meal...and making it look good!

You would assume that most cooking is just following directions. However, for some people with no experience in the kitchen, even something “simple” might prove to be a challenge. 

The key here is to start with easy recipes and give yourself time so you’re not rushed. Instead of starting out with chicken cacciatore and creamed veggies, try making your loved one a cheese omelette. Once you are comfortable there, throw in some bacon and veggies with that cheese. Where does the “impressive” part come in? Place the omelette on a plate and decorate it with a few ripe fruits or some leafy greens (like the arugula in the picture). Presentation is key.
