"I think it pisses God off if you walk by the color purple in a field somewhere and don't notice it" -- Alice Walker

How to be Smarter: When a pen stops writing, you have two options: throw it out, or scribble it around on the paper until the ink appears again. When something stops working, whether it's a job, your academic major, or a relationship, you have a choice whether to move on or to try hard to make the broken item fixed. But like a pen that has been scribbled back to life, a job/college major/relationship that has stopped meeting your needs before will probably stop meeting them again, no matter how hard you frantically scribble to bring it back to life. How to be Prettier: A fun Valentines Day gift for a girlfriend to hold her jewelry in (and you can feel good about the sustainable nonprofit your purchase is supporting).
