"Perhaps I am stronger than I think” -- Thomas Merton

How to be Smarter: As Rihanna sings, "In anticipation for the precipitation/Stack chips for a rainy day." Clouds can come from anywhere so build those networking contacts, financial reserves, and your mental toughness up now.

How to be Prettier: Slate gray is the color of nail polish for spring. I know this is true because every style icon I see has this color on her nails.

How to be (less) Awkward: Everyone has people they admire and emulate to be like. To get pumped up before a big speech or interview, watch youTube clips of people you think are intelligent and well-spoken. It will rub off on you!
