“A ruffled mind makes a restless pillow” — Charlotte Brontë

How to be Smarter: When you first get in the ocean, the water is usually really cold and uncomfortable until you duck your head under. As soon as your head is under, the water usually starts to feel warmer. Sometimes when you first try new activities, jobs, or majors,  they can be really cold-feeling and uncomfortable until you make a commitment to fully immerse yourself in your new environment. To reach out and make new friends in your writing class; to run for office in your film club; to invite a girl in the cubicle next to you out for lunch. In order for nervousness  and uncomfortable feelings to go away, you often have to dive right in and swim around a little until you warm up.

How to be Prettier: Stylish, warm lounging slippers–great for a dad, brother or boyfriend.

How to be (less) Awkward: Just a really great proposal video and story.
