"There comes a time when you have to choose between turning the page and closing the book." -- Josh Jameson

How to be Smarter: Book Recommendation: Dare, Dream, Do by Whitney Johnson. A very enjoyable read about the importance of identifying goals and going after them, with lots of real-world stories by female dreamers and do-ers mixed into a hopeful message about what someone can accomplish. [And tons of quotes, which I loved]. How to be Prettier: An SP&A Exclusive Discount Code: With the promo code PRETTY15, you can get 15% off your order at handmade jewelry store Linkel Designs, valid until 12/23.  [I really love this shop: I bought a Cameo Statement Ring about a year ago from them, and it is one of my most favorite pieces of jewelry. I also have my eye on this Lucite Flower Ring, and many items from their 5 and 10 Sale].

How to be (less) Awkward: When on foot and waiting to cross the street, make sure to keep the sidewalk mini-ramp clear so that people riding/pushing/pulling items with wheels can use the ramp without obstruction.
