Lifehacking My Way to the Top

Lifehacker is perhaps the most earnest blog on the entire World Wide Web. With advice ranging from turning a paint chip into a card holder and two postings on how to wrap headphones, Lifehacker is for people looking to get the most out of life while wasting time at work. Perhaps coincidentally, these eager beavers often suffer from low self-esteem. Luckily, LH often posts quick fixes for that, too.

Today’s advice: Think of times when you did something that you thought that [you] never could do but managed to pull off successfully.

So today I registered for the lottery for NYC 2007 marathon. Right now, I don’t think I’ll make the cut. (Around 98,000 people are expected to apply for 38,000 spots.) How will I feel if I get in? If this lotto winner is any indication, I’m hoping for pulling off frizzy hair good.
