“I hate small towns because once you've seen the cannon in the park there's nothing else to do” -- Lenny Bruce

How to be Smarter: I heard a fact once that you have to do something 37 times before it becomes a habit. Whenever I am scared of doing something, I keep a tally of how many times I have done it, and, without fail, by the time I hit 37 I am not scared of it anymore.  How to be Prettier: No wearing shoes with an ankle strap that will cut off your ankles and make your legs appear shorter. Also, nude heels always elongate. 

How to be (less) Awkward: You can't do the back-to-back phone call followed by a text if neither have gotten a response within the first two week window of meeting someone.
