It's Not Easy Being "Cool"
It's not easy being "cool."
You can't ask the questions you need to ask in order to gain knowledge because, well, you are already supposed to have that knowledge by virtue of the fact that you're cool. The cool don't ask questions. They just know.
And what they don't know isn't worth knowing.
You also can't admit to mistakes because the cool never make mistakes. You cannot be upset, worried, scared, sad or flat-out perplexed.
All of those aren't cool.
The cool are never in the process of becoming or improving. They simply are.
It is unfortunate that cool has often been associated with anti-heroes and shallowness. A far better version would include humility, grace, courage, kindness, integrity, and reliability.
That version would really be cool.
