"I love her and that's the beginning of everything" -- F. Scott Fitzgerald

How to be Smarter: Sometimes in hot yoga, I feel embarrassed about lying down if I get too hot, because the teacher tells me to stay up and on posture with the class. But then I remember that I am paying for the class, and I could stand on my head the whole time if I feel like it. Whoever is paying the money is usually the one that has the power--don't forget that.  How to be Prettier: I really enjoy reading this blog, called Sex and the College Girl. She has a different perspective on realtionships then I do, and I always feel like her view is valuable. 

How to be (less) Awkward: I don't endorse lying. But if you absolutely feel like you need to, keep it short, with one to two specific details, and that's it. Anything more looks too detailed and is too hard to keep straight, anything less looks like you are hiding something.
