How to be Smarter: What Lucky People Do Differently. How to be Prettier: Adding, changing, or removing throw pillows from a room is one of the easiest ways to change a color scheme without involving paint or major furniture changes.
How to be (less) Awkward: "Stop identifying yourself as a cliche and start treating yourself as an individual. Constantly checking your life against a prewritten narrative or story of how things 'should' be is a bought-into way of life. It’s sort of like renting your identity. It isn’t you. You are more nuanced than the narrative you try to fit yourself into, more complex than the story that 'should' be happening." -- Great quote from this awesome Thought Catalog piece.
