"To cure jealousy is to see it for what it is, a dissatisfaction with self" -- Joan Didion

 How to be Smarter: My favorite method to pay down debt or to save up for something is snowflaking--I just didn't know the formal name of it until now. Snowflaking means applying small unexpected amounts of cash (from selling something on eBay to finding $20 in your couch) to your debt or to your saving pile, rather than putting it in your wallet--thus slowly accumulating money without feeling an impact on your daily lifestyle (Source). How to be Prettier: If you have naturally frizzy hair and are consider dying it, remember that darker colors can mask frizzy hair by giving it a healthier, smoother look. (Source with other tips about hair dying).

How to be (less) Awkward: If you get invited to an event on Facebook and you cannot attend, do not be the first to respond. If you are the first to RSVP and you say “not attending,” then all future people getting the invite will see that the first person who responded said no, which can be embarrassing for the event host. If you can't attend an event you got invited to on facebook, RSVP no after others have already RSVP'd yes.
