How to be Smarter: In a discussion where you and the other person are disagreeing, use the term "rarely" instead of "never." If you say, “you never visit me on my lunch hour," the other party will immediately remind you of the time they visited you three months ago. If you say the phase, "you rarely visit me on my lunch hour," it is much trickier for the other party to disagree. How to be Prettier: These cleansing pads are made for post-gym use, but I keep them on my nightstand and use them on nights when I'm just too tired to get back up and go to the bathroom to wash my face before bed.
How to be (less) Awkward: If you still haven't become that girl who goes to the beach with a matching bathing suit and cover-up, manicured toes and a trendy tote to hold your neatly folded towel and sunscreen that is not oozing everywhere, it may be time to realize you might never look that perfectly pulled together. That's not a bad thing--that pulled-together-looking girl may wish she was more like you. But the sooner you both stop looking at the other person and wishing you were more like them, the better off you both will be.
