Please Don't

Please don't name the pdf of your creative portfolio "my work." Or for that matter: portfolio, resume, e-book, my portfolio, me, mine or any un-named configuration of those words.

Today I tried to locate a junior book I was sent quite some time ago. I have a folder on my computer that is loaded with pdfs of books that I need to look at, have looked at, or just generally have stuck there. While searching, I noticed a huge chunk of them are labeled in these crazy generic ways. And yet, to whom does "portfolio" belong to?

I wish I had all the time in the day to open each one of these files, but since it's taken me months to even venture into this folder, you can guess that's time I don't have.

Just your name. That's it. All I need.
