How to be Smarter: When buying new furniture from a specific brand, find a set of drawers from the desired label, pull the drawer out, and try to wiggle it. In general, the more it wiggles, the less sturdy and less well-made the brand's furniture is built. How to be Prettier: Clothes that make you wish you looked differently do not belong in your closet. Give negative-energy pieces away; when you open your closet doors you should see wonderful possibilities for outfits that make you feel confident and happy, not numbers on a scale from 3 years ago.
How to be (less) Awkward: In general, call people by the name they introduce themselves as. If Harry's mom says "Hi, I'm Emily," you can call Harry's mom Emily. But if she says "Hi, I'm Mrs. Allen," then call her Mrs. Allen.
