How to be Smarter: Never miss a good movie scene. How to be Prettier: Point your chin slightly down in pictures--it makes your eyes look bigger.
How to be (less) Awkward: People who throw trash on the ground are litterbugs. What they are saying through their actions is "I have this beautiful thing that I'm free to walk all around and over and love as I wish, and I chose to throw my trash on it and leave the mess for someone else to clean up." If you are silly enough to date a litterbug, then you better be strong enough to move on after he is done trashing you.
