"The shortest answer is doing the thing." -- Ernest Hemingway

How to be Smarter: When looking for someone to date, focus on having the same values rather than having the same interests. If you both value the same things, its usually easier to build a life together. It's also a lot of fun to date someone whose interested in things you know nothing about - your entire range of knowledge expands. How to be Prettier: The easiest way to go from day to night with an outfit is to to upgrade your earrings from studs to bigger, fancier earrings. It's a simple change that really does make an impact.

How to be (less) Awkward: When I'm looking for a confidence boost, my favorite song to listen is Jem's "It's Amazing." I love the lyric nothing can compare to deserving your dreams.
