"Success is simply a matter of luck. Ask any failure" -- Earl Wilson

How to be Smarter: A truth: there are more resources available to help you than you can believe, and more people willing to help you than you can believe.

How to be Prettier: I have three holiday parties to go to the first week of December; with the exception of my date, there will be different people at each one, so I am planning on wearing this red dress to all of them. I cannot wait.

How to be (less) Awkward: Buy two or three of these shower caps, wrap them up sweetly, and you have a perfect holiday White Elephant/Yankee Swap gift.
