Smart, Pretty & Awkward

How to be Smarter: The moments that feel the most lonely are sometimes the best reminders you are connected to everyone else. Because everybody on this planet has experienced sadness, felt heartbreak, had big and small disappointments, been sensitive to rejection, laid in bed worried. The moments that feel the most isolating are some of the best reminders that you are part of a larger community.

How to be (less) Awkward: Add the recipient’s name to the “TO:” line as the last thing you do when writing an email, not the first. This helps prevent accidentally sending the email before you finish typing or spell-checking it.

    I always follow this Less Awkward tip – such a little thing, but it can stop you looking really unprofessional when you send something half-done! *top tip*!

    I think you used the less awkward tip before, but it totally bears repeating! I’ve been using it ever since I saw it here, and it has been a life saver. No more lost jobs due to my cover letter saying, “Please see my resume, attached…” with no attachments. *headdesk*
