    God, I'd forgotten that most of them are a Problem - yeah, any single use product tends to suck for the environment. I get compostable wipes - I'm using Yes To, but Burt's Bees and several other companies also do them - so they have lower impact, in part because it's easy if I'm running low on spoons as I usually am at the end of the day and in part because I've really hated most of the oil cleansers I've tried. I have some makeup remover I like that's a standalone oil-based product, but I also hate the added laundry of reusable rounds.

    I had no idea, thanks for the info! What oil cleansers would you recommend, if I might ask?

    I really like Fake Bake's Skin D Luxe Cleansing Melt - apply like a moisturiser, massage, and then add water to make it a cleansing milk which you can rinse off.

    This is probs gonna be long as hell and tell me if I should make a separate post plz

    In the early 2000-2010s I was a pretty good and enthusiastic FMV maker, usually sticking to anime and a few games, but I got good enough to even win one or two local comptetions at minor cons and I've still got at least a dozen vids on my YouTube channel that really show my progress from having no idea what I was doing to actually not being awful.

    About seven years ago, a combination of total creative burn out, some really weird bad luck and some really awful health probelms caused me to put away Sony Vegas and close my laptop for what I thought was for good. I'd always only made for my own entertainment and it just wasn't fun any more.

    But about a year ago, I don't know why, I actually started editing again - I felt inspired, and have made a few little betas and small clips that I actually liked enough to keep going. I've now made enough headway on a project that I'm considering uploading to my channel again, which is where my question comes in.

    My channel is a mess. It was never the tidiest to begin with, but after close to a decade of using it only as a repository for my personal playlists and favourites of all categories, as well as the place to accidentally upload the odd pet video when I forgot I already had an extra channel for that, my options are -

    A) delete all my old vids, reupload what I still have on file elsewhere and just keep my YouTube for random crap

    B) delete the pet videos and just go on with the confusing mess I have, hopefully pleasantly surprising my like three subscribers who likely haven't unsubscibed purely because they forgot about me

    Or C) delete the pet videos from my beta channel, the MVs from my main, and switch them. ScreamingButtweed will be a MV channel and BastLoki can be my lolloping goliath of a personal account.

    I could literally do either of these, but it's all so overwhelming, lol. Any advice would be appreciated.

    personally I’d say don’t delete things, never delete things, even if you plan to reupload you’d lose the comment and viewing history and the video would be gone from any playlists anyone added it to

    if it were me I’d just upload duplicates of the main channel worthy vids to the main channel and/or make a playlist of everything you consider good.

    If you want, you can make the pet videos Unlisted and make your playlists private.

    my sibling was just informed that they can't keep seeing their therapist across state lines (they moved out of state a couple months ago) because of insurance reasons. has anyone ever heard of this happening? is there a way around it?

    they just started grad school and are living in a house with a bunch of other people in Boston, and both of those are good things but it would still be Not a good time for them to lose their therapist
