How to be Smarter: When dating someone new, try not to be a constant walking advertisement selling yourself. Yes, you want him to know how great you are, but there is something to be said for letting him learn about you on his own--you should not feel like you need to campaign for him to realize how smart, nice, or athletic you are. How to be Prettier: Cheer on your favorite baseball team in style--Victoria's Secret now has great team-themed options (scroll down to find your team).
How to be (less) Awkward: The goal of inviting guests over is to make them feel comfortable and welcome. When inviting people over for a meal or to a party be mindful of their dietary restrictions, i.e. if they are vegetarians, have meat-free food they can eat and enjoy, and/or if they are lactose intolerant do not have an ice cream cake.
