How to be Smarter: Wednesday fun fact: 90% of Americans live within 15 miles of  a Wal-mart store. (Source). How to be Prettier: Shake up your style: follow the most stylish girl around the store or flea market and see what she picks up.

How to be (less) Awkward: If there was a yellow dress you liked online but it was labeled "Out of Stock," you would say, "aw, too bad," and move on. You would not check the dress daily hoping they would magically make more--you would search online to find another similar yellow dress that was in-stock somewhere else--maybe for a lower price or a pattern you liked more. If there is a boy you like but he has a girlfriend, consider him labeled "Out of Stock." Do not check his facebook daily hoping his relationship status changes, or plot ways to make him break up with his current girl. Think about what you like about him--his sense of humor, his kindness--and go find it in someone else.
