"Anything easy has its cost" -- Song Lyric, Barenaked Ladies

How to be Smarter: Documentary Recommendation: Happy, directed by Roko Belic. It's an interesting, international look at the science of happiness.  (It's also available on iTunes). How to be Prettier: First dates and job interviews are not the best places to try to break in new heels.

How to be (less) Awkward: If you forget the lyrics while lip syncing, mouthing the word “watermelon” will look like you know them.
