Smart, Pretty & Awkward

How to be Smarter: In general, there are two reasons for why you should be doing something: either doing it brings you joy, or doing it puts you on a path that will get you closer to your final goal. If something doesn’t fulfill either of these two purposes, it might be time to stop doing it.

How to be Prettier: My favorite deep conditioner.

How to be (less) Awkward: An offbeat but surprisingly useful gift for a friend moving into a new place is a big box of double A batteries. Everyone always needs batteries, but it’s something we rarely think to buy for ourselves until whatever device we want to use runs out of them. Buying a friend a big box ensures she’ll be stocked up for a while in her new place.
