"Doors don't slam open" -- John M. Shanahan

How to be Smarter: I always wonder what happens when family videos get a lot of hits on YouTube; first watch this cute video and then read the family's reaction to the attention it was getting. How to be Prettier: I try not to go clothes shopping right after I have gotten my hair done; for some reason my hair looking great tricks me into thinking everything I try on looks great.

How to be (less) Awkward: Coolest thing I've found on the Internet this week: chocolate menus. (The second image has a picture of a sample menu).

P.S. For incoming college freshmen, Valerie from So It Must Be True... complied a list of freshmen year advice from bloggers around the web --check it out here.
