How to be Smarter: Use half-birthdays as a chance to evaluate if your year is going as you planned, and if you have accomplished your goals for your year yet. Only six more months til your next birthday--what do you have left to do during this year of your life? How to be Prettier: A very cool designer, and her very cool headbands. My favorite are the ones with flowers!
How to be (less) Awkward: Sometimes, if I feel a little sad, I smile and look at myself in the mirror. Somehow seeing my smile tricks my mind into making me think I am happy, and I feel just a little bit better instantly.
