"Hitch your wagon to a star" -- Ralph Waldo Emerson

How to be Smarter: My favorite is the Bumpits.  How to be Prettier: On apparel care: over-drying your clothes in the dryer causes colors to fade, and washing your clothes in cold water is better for the environment because it takes less energy to heat the water.

How to be (less) Awkward: I don't think you need to type perfectly in an online conversation between friends. If you say "go" instead of "got" or "now" instead of "know," your friends aren't idiots. They know what you mean. There is no need to take the time, unless the misspelled word drastically changes the meaning of the sentence, to correct it. Same goes for texting with your buddies.
