How to be Smarter: Some of the most important chatter about a group or office project happens before the meeting actually begins. Grab a tea and show up five minutes early to the conference room or library and see what others are gabbing about. You will probably learn ahead of time about any brewing problems, and you will feel more "in the know" on a personal level with your group members or co-workers. How to be Prettier: Getting your eyelash curler warm before you use it will allow the tool to curl your eyelashes better. Just run your blow dryer over the curler for a few seconds, making sure not to get it too hot, and then use normally.
How to be (less) Awkward: Even if you are not in this stage of your life, I like this website because it celebrates the idea that you can do things differently, trust your instincts, and still be ok.
