"As long as there's pasta and Chinese food in the world, I'm okay" -- Michael Chang

How to be Smarter: I just finished a memoir called This Is Not The Story You Think It Is: A Season of Unlikely Happiness and really enjoyed it. If you don't have time to read the whole book, it is based off of the writer’s Modern Love column from last year.     How to be Prettier: I’ve noticed that the most fashionable of my friends say “wear” when talking about their bags; i.e. “I’m wearing my blue Coach bag today,” as opposed to, “I have my blue Coach bag today.” Just a tiny change that makes you seem more hip to the style scene.

How to be (less) Awkward: This is not based in anything other than my observations; it's not scientific. But I do think the more nervous and overprotective you are about your boyfriend cheating, the more likely he is to do it.
