When everything is going wrong just throw your hands in the air, lie down and wait for death to come. It's so much easier than trying to come up with a solution to the problem

17. Create an air of mystery about yourself

"What time is it?" "I'm sorry, for personal reasons I cannot answer that question". Are you crazy, or a genius? No one will ever know!

Whether it's through words or actions it's important to make yourself noticed!

20. Attend formal events with colleagues

Make sure you don't like your partner too much. Most grown-ups secretly hate each other, but don't want to die alone

22. Most importantly, dream big!
