"My mother is a poem I'll never be able to write, though everything I write is a poem to my mother" -- Sharon Doubiago

How to be Smarter: A book I recommend to get some new ideas flowing in your head: Four Hour Workweek. How to be Prettier: A really soothing brand of end-of-the day facewipes that are less irritating for the winter. Use only half of a wipe at a time to make the package last longer.

How to be (less) Awkward: I think a cute thing to do when it rains is to look out the window and say, "oh good, a free window washing!"
