"A fish may love a bird, but where would they live?" -- Danielle, "Ever After"

How to be Smarter:  If you want more friends, be friendly to more. Invite a new girl out to dinner with your crew, start stopping by the desk of a co-worker you'd like to get to know better, buy a big thing of Halloween candy and bring it around your dorm floor to share. How to be Prettier: Glitter nail polish is the most  low- maintenance of all nail polishes. Chipping is harder to see, and another coat or two of glitter can be added whenever it starts to dull. Perfect as we enter into the holiday season.

How to be (less) Awkward: If you're going to buy a drink for someone else, try not to do it in the middle of the night, when it can get awkward as you fumble for cash mid-meal and/or they might already have a tab open. Try to do it at a transition part of the night (for example, when you first arrive or when you leave the table to start dancing).
