"There is no passion to be found playing small--in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living." -- Nelson Mandela

How to be Smarter: One of the last things to pack when moving to a new home is your tools kit, especially your screwdriver. You will probably find a use for a screwdriver earlier on in the unpacking process, and by packing it last, it will be at the top of one of the boxes, meaning less boxes you need to rummage through to find it. How to be Prettier: When shampooing, "to avoid damaging hair, massage your scalp with your fingertips rather than your fingernails or palms." [Source, with four more great shampooing tips].

How to be (less) Awkward: A key to making friends is to take people up on their invites. When the friend of a friend throws a birthday party and invites you on Facebook, show up. When the co-worker invites you to coffee, say yes. When you get an invite email to an alumni event from a girl you kinda know, go. Just go. If you starting saying yes to invitations, you will get more invitations. You will start seeing the same people at events, your network will grow, and some of them will turn into friends.
