"Things may come to those who wait, but only the things left by those who hustle" -- Abraham Lincoln

How to be Smarter: If you like the idea of having a book club with your girlfriends, but no one has time to read a whole novel, chose one longer-ish article that everyone can read in under an hour and then discuss over some snacks. How to be Prettier: I am loving cutout dresses right now. Urban Outfitters has a lot of nice options, including my favorite, this one.

How to be (less) Awkward: If you are going to have a facebook photo of you holding a small child, be sure to clarify in the caption whether the baby is yours, a niece/nephew, or a friend's to avoid confusion.
