How to be Smarter: You will never be the smartest at something you dislike. Only get involved in projects you feel motivated about.
How to be Prettier: If your skin feels dry, drink tea instead of coffee for a few days. Always makes my skin feel much healthier.
How to be less Awkward: If you have to chose between being overdressed or underdressed, be overdressed. You will feel awkward if everyone looks nicer then you.
