How to be Smarter: If you are stuck and can't think of ideas for how to celebrate a milestone, think back to what you did when you were little. Did you celebrate your tenth birthday at LaserQuest--why don't you do that for your 10 month with your beau? Was your kindergarten graduation party ladybug-themed--why not have a college graduation brunch with the same color scheme? Parties that were fun when you were little are still fun--maybe more so--as an adult. How to be Prettier: If you're going to pluck your eyebrows, do it after a shower when your pores are still open so it hurts less.
How to be (less) Awkward: At work or at home, no sending huge email attachments unless the person has specifically asked for the material. And even then, double-check before sending so you don't clog up their entire inbox.
