"Is life not a thousand times too short for us to bore ourselves?" -- Friedrich Nietzsche

How to be Smarter: If you're feeling stressed about something non-important, ask a friend to do a 'worry swap' with you. Just ask her what she's stressing about today (the boy she likes won't text her? her grade on last week's exam?) and tell her you will worry about that for her, if she will worry about whatever you are over-thinking about. Sometimes it just helps to be able to share your worry with someone else, and let them 'handle' worrying about it for you. How to be Prettier: I find wedges a lot more comfortable to walk in than heels: these are springy, floral, and available in both low and high heights. Purchased! (I got the higher ones).

How to be (less) Awkward: It's a little creepy, a little cool, a little artsy: Girls with Steve Buscemi's eyes.
