How to be Smarter: When traveling in countries whose language you do not speak, have the hotel write down on a scrap of paper the name of the place you want to go to give to the cab driver.
How to be Prettier: Unscientifically, making your strides longer as you walk both get places faster and burns more calories.
How to be (less) Awkward: If you want to text a boy, but do not know what to say, wish him a happy random holiday day. For example, March 18, today, is "Awkward Moments Day". Happy National Awkward Moments day! Find holidays here: http://www.holidays.net/dailys.htm
