How to be Smarter: Get a hobby--and "going to the bar" is not an appropriate one. Have something that you do just because you like to. The most interesting people are ones who enjoy interests that are uniquely their own. How to be Prettier: It is the summer, and it is okay to be a little more crazy than normal, clothes (and boy) wise. I like striped cardigans over floral dresses. Its nice if the cardigan has the same colors as the dress, but you can also go slightly mod with a black and white cardigan over some pretty pink flowers.
How to be (less) Awkward: If a man walks by you and he is wearing your old boyfriend's cologne, pay attention to the very first thought that goes through your head. This microsecond thought will tell you a lot about how you feel about the ex--for better or worse.
