How to be Smarter: When moving, set aside a screwdriver to put at the top of one of the boxes. It will probably be one of the first things you need in your new house, and you don't want to dig through a bunch of boxes to find it. How to be Prettier: If you are heading out on New Year's Eve, wear your warmest coat (you will coat check it two seconds after you get into the venue anyways), and shoes you have broken-in already. A warm coat and feet that don't pinch eliminate 99% percent of New Year's Eve going-out hassles.
How to be (less) Awkward: It's totally fine if you are not in the mood to go out and would rather stay home for the night. But if you make a choice to go out for the evening, you have also made a choice to leave any bad attitude at home. It's better to be the girl that everyone misses and wishes was at the party, then the girl at the party complaining about how she would rather be at home.
