The Power of Sparkles

I've been a little tired lately, what with all the end of the school year stuff and the one month until launch stuff and all the other...well, STUFF. Clearly, I need some kind of pick-me-up to help get me through all these things. I debated vitamins or exercise or all the things that the experts say you should do. But then I realized I was missing the most obvious solution of all.

I'm going to cover myself in sparkles.

Clearly, sparkles impart extraordinary powers. With the power of my sparkles, I should be able to keep the house clean, take care of the garden, and write a book in a 24 hour span. And then I can spend the rest of the month alphabetizing my cd collection and watching people sleep.

Frankly, I can't believe I haven't thought of this before. From now on, I'm going to get all my life tips from YA books. Can you think of any good ones?

Sparkles are a good idea. Obviously, discovering your inner pixie wouldn't hurt either, although the blue skin could be a problem.

Awesome idea, Carrie! I may have to impliment that one... ;) You could also see if Hogwarts offers a correspondence course. If so, you could learn cleaning spells to keep on top of things!

It's not NECESSARILY a YA principle, but as far as a pick-me-up goes.....

If smoking's not your thing, it also comes in a delicious new beverage.
