How to be Smarter: Pure cranberry juice is suppose to be so good for you, but I hate the taste. I mix it with gingerale when I don't feel too well, and it always works. Sometimes I also mix it with orange juice for the Vitamin C. How to be Prettier: I love getting ready as much as anyone. I love laying all my clothes out on the bed, and trying on different shoes, and asking my roommates' advice, and texting my friends and seeing what they are wearing, and fixing my hair, and doing the eye makup perfectly. But sometimes, go out without all that fuss. I have a theory that reminding yourself that you don't need to do all that prep to look nice is good for your soul.
How to be (less) Awkward: Try to make other people's lives more fun when you're around. And that means everyone's--not just your friends and your crush. Make your mom laugh. Make your boss smile. Make the kid you're babysitting giggle.
