"If you want to sing out, sing out. If you want to be free, be free"--Cat Stevens

How to be Smarter: Never leave home without a notebook. You must record lists of errands, subjects, possible novel ideas, new items of clothes to wear, subjects to study, new words. Write everything down.

How to be Prettier: Today, shave your legs at the end of the shower, not when you first get in. The hot water will soften skin and you will get a closer shave.

How to be less Awkward: If you want to be perceived as less awkward, always be the first in social situations. Be the first in class to present a project, be the first person to volunteer to start a new line at the grocery store, be the first person to stick out your hand and say hello. Humans perceive this quality as adventurous and aggressive, not awkward.
