"Trust everybody, but cut the cards" -- Finley Peter Dunne

How to be Smarter: Turn a bad habit into a fun treat. (For example, spending too much time reading celebrity magazines? Instead of beating yourself up over wasting time, allow yourself to read them only while waiting in doctor's offices or on your commute). How to be Prettier: "Twist, don’t pump, your mascara wand in the bottle—it lessens the amount of trapped air, which can create bacteria." (Source).

How to be (less) Awkward: Make everyone in your life feel like they receive special treatment from you. Because if you treat everyone like they are your favorite, you will become their favorite.
