How to be Smarter: If you dye your hair occasionally, the change will be welcomed and a little refresh on the color will look nice. But if you are always changing hues, the constant upheaval will tire your hair out. Just like change in your life, change in your hair color can be fun, but it needs to be metered so it's not too many new things at once. Everyone needs change--but they also need stabilizing forces. How to be Prettier: A friend directed me to this site, which has reasonably priced, beautiful finds. Some favorites: hair-dryer necklace; spring-time night-time dress; and knee-length lace skirt.

How to be (less) Awkward: Some people are bad at remembering names, even if they remember faces. Make their life easier by volunteering your name the second time you meet, i.e. "Hi, I'm Molly, we met at Jeff's party last week. Nice to see you again!"
