How to be Smarter: What are the odds of you being here? How to be Prettier: Wearing a top that matches your eye color is one of the quickest ways to have your eyes pop (and wearing a color the same shade as your eyes almost always guarantees someone will compliment you on them).
How to be (less) Awkward: Instead of being scared you will become a failure, be scared you will become a success. Any way you look at the future, parts of it will be scary and unknown. But it's simply more fun to worry that you will be promoted to CEO on your first day and no longer have time to attend your weekly kickboxing class, than to imagine you will get fired on your first day and no longer have the funds to attend your weekly kickboxing class. If you must worry about unexpected things, then at least let yourself worry about fun unexpected things.
