How to be Smarter: After a breakup, mandatory 3 days of no dramatic texting, rambling emails, or drunken calling. Number is out of your phone until you have a clearer head.
How to be Prettier: Waiting a few days between shaving your legs makes them smoother when you actually do.
How to be (less) Awkward: If someone doesn't respond to your facebook friend request within three days, they saw it already and chose to ignore it. Exception: older family members who don't know how to use/don't log into facebook that often.
