"Someone's sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago" -- Warren Buffett

How to be Smarter: The policeman in Monopoly's real name is Officer Edgar Mallory (Source). How to be Prettier: Three big things happening in fashion right now are bows, pale pink, and polka dots. I love how this skirt combines all three.

How to be (less) Awkward: Some questions are scary to ask. But the chance of the answer to your question being "yes" is zero percent if you don't ask. "Would you like to have coffee with me?" "Can you please regrade my paper?" "Would you consider me to intern for you?" It can only go up from zero if you ask. Just ask.
