How to be Smarter: Everything you want in a significant other (ambition, kindness, nice to family) is something you must also expect and cultivate in yourself. How to be Prettier: I love the look of this shirt with a low side braid. (I saw a girl in the village wearing that style of top with a braid over the weekend, and I thought she looked gorgeous).

How to be (less) Awkward: Even if the class is boring and you are counting down the minutes until the bell rings, once the bell does finally go off, wait until the professor finishes his sentence before bolting from his room. Staying for one more minute while he finishes his thought is a gesture of respect.
