"Men who don't like girls with brains don't like girls" -- Mignon McLaughlin

How to be Smarter: Boys that care always wait at the station with you, and then watch until you get safely on and the bus or train rolls away. How to be Prettier: Everyone should feel comfortable in their undergarments.

How to be (less) Awkward: Treat all your friends so each one secretly believes they are your favorite. This is also applicable for raising children.
