"We have no simple problems or easy decisions after kindergarten." -- John W. Turk

How to be Smarter: When sending an email with links, take an extra second and double-check that all the links work. It is a time-waster to send out a wrong link and have the recipient(s) be confused about the message of your email or have to request you resend the right link. How to be Prettier: If your hair is looking messy, sometimes an easy fix is just to re-part it. Brush your hair forward and then create a new, straighter part with your comb or your finger for your hair to fall from on each side.

How to be (less) Awkward: When sharing big news (new job, engagement, or something similar) wait to share it on social media. This ensures that you get the joy of telling those in your life in-person, which is usually more fun for both of you than them hearing it from Facebook.
