"If you saw a heat wave, would you wave back?" -- Stephen Wright

How to be Smarter: Two favorite titles of mine for beach reading: Dog Handling by Clare Naylor, and How to Get Divorced by 30 by Sascha Rothchild. How to be Prettier: The best pump-up song to listen to while you are home for the summer and getting ready to meet up with old classmates is "The Girl Got Hot" by Weezer.

How to be (less) Awkward: If a boy takes you to the zoo, he likes you a lot.
