"Excellence is not a singular act, but a habit. You are what you repeatedly do" -- Shaquille O'Neal

How to be Smarter: If your significant other is not meeting your expectations, you need to either change your expectations or change your significant other. If the issue is small, change your expectations. If the issue is large, change your significant other. And the way to decide if an issue is small or large is to figure out how important the issue is to you. The more important the issue is to you, the bigger it is.   How to be Prettier: Just the cutest little things for your feet to snuggle in as we roll into fall nights. Also the perfect thing to buy for a friend going through a rough time, or to mail in a care package to someone you love that is far-away.

How to be (less) Awkward: In an elevator, women exit first, and age take priority. For example, if you and your boyfriend are in an elevator, you get off first. If you and your mom are in the elevator, your mom exits first. If you, your boyfriend, and your mom are in the elevator, your mom exits, then you, then your boyfriend. If you, your boyfriend, your dad, and your mom are in the elevator,  your mom exits, then you, then your dad, then your boyfriend.
