"The biggest dog has been a pup" -- Joaquin Miller

How to be Smarter: A really fun word games site. How to be Prettier:  I love this dress: the pattern says hippie chic, but the shape still says girlie dress. I've already worn it twice this week (and I only got it in the mail last week!).

How to be (less) Awkward: I think at the heart of friendship, people are looking for friends that care for them and have their back. Other things are important, like similar sense of humor and shared interests, but one of the best ways to be someone's friend is to simply speak well of them--in front of their face and when they are not around to hear.
