"Excellence is not a skill. It is an attitude" -- Ralph Marston

How to be Smarter: Eleanor Roosevelt is a personal role model for me, which is why I picked up the book My Year with Eleanor; but by the end of the book, the author, Noelle Hancock, was another role model for me. Both Eleanor and Noelle's fearlessness is inspiring, and I highly recommend the book. How to be Prettier: A short dress that has a conservative neckline can be made appropriate for office or daytime wear by adding a skirt over the bottom half of it.

How to be (less) Awkward: "Why am I different from the others?" "Why do you need to be like the others?" [One of the best commercials I've ever seen].
