How to be Smarter: The only way I have found to conquer writer's block is by following a simple rule: don't get up from the chair until you have written something. You can always go back and revise what you wrote later, but you must write something before you can get up. And usually the something is better than you think it might be. How to be Prettier: It's important to remember that whether you do your nails yourself or you pay for a manicure, you will probably get the same number of compliments on them either way.
How to be (less) Awkward: If you are buying items you feel awkward about at the drugstore, cover the items in your basket with a magazine while you walk up to the front to check out.
