How to be Smarter: Don't buy expensive tights and/or leggings. No one will ever ask you where they are from, and they wear out so fast anyways. CVS sells cheap tights that last for about seven to ten wearings.
How to be Prettier: Listen to Brother Ali's "Forest Whitaker" while you are getting ready.
How to be (less) Awkward: Its not proven, but I think that putting perfume above your heart before going out makes you more attractive.
