How to be Smarter: If small children you are babysitting and/or parenting are fighting over something, let one cut it in half, and then the other one gets to choose the half they want. This keeps things fair.
How to be Prettier: If the earring is missing its back, you can either:
a) cut a pencil tip eraser off and use it as a back (for a stud earring)
b) squeeze the earring back tightly together (for dangle earrings with longer backs).
How to be (less) Awkward: FACT: when I give presentations, I never wear my glasses. If I can't see the audience I feel less stressed.
