How to be Smarter: It's okay to ask for help from people you love when you need it. But if you trust them enough to ask for their expertise, in return you cannot micromanage their approach.

How to be (less) Awkward: If a drink is accidentally spilled on you while you are out, there is just no point in making a big deal of it--it is already spilled. Mop it up a bit, tell whoever is watching "oh don't worry, I'm not that wet!," and move on. A spilled drink dries and goes away. But the impression people get when a girl makes too big of a deal over a little accident of a spilled drink does not.
