"Many of our fears are tissue paper thin, and a single courageous step would carry us clear through them" -- Brendan Francis

How to be Smarter: Extremely addicting geography game (Photos of the World is my favorite level). How to be Prettier: I bought this bag a few months ago as a gift for someone; when it came in the mail, I quickly ordered one for me. The version I ordered was pink/black, which is sold out now, but this bag is a similar styling.

How to be (less) Awkward: When you pull a stick of gum or a mint out of your purse in a group setting, offer one to everyone. If you don't have enough to share (or just don't feel like sharing), wait for a moment alone to grab one for yourself.
