In such domains, lack of skill implies both the
inability to perform competently as well as the inability
to recognize competence, and thus are also the domains
in which the incompetent are likely to be unaware of
their lack of skill.
In other domains, however, competence is not wholly
dependent on knowledge or wisdom, but depends on
other factors, such as physical skill. One need not look
far to find individuals with an impressive understanding
of the strategies and techniques of basketball, for instance, yet who could not “dunk” to save their lives.
(These people are called coaches.)
Having to read and review research papers is so much more manageable when they get sassy in their discussions.
Paul Baribeau / “Christmas Lights”
fresh snow on the suburbs
staying at my parents
it hasn’t been a good year
but things are all right here
sleeping in the spare room
that used to be my bedroom
even though I’m home now
I feel completely homeless

Don’t say you’ll ‘treat a girl like a princess’ unless you’re prepared to follow up on that shit.
If I’m not living in a castle by the sea with diplomatic powers over a small country then you’re a bitch-ass liar.

Pinky Swear - Into It. Over It.
Every single car on the new jersey turnpike
Has their hazards flashing for a fireworks display
I’ll stop and watch it but I’m too busy thinking
Of every single chance that I was too afraid to take

I would say I’m sorry but I’m not sorry. I would say “hey what’s the difference?”, entertain my lack of interest. Cause the one you are ain’t the one that I’m after, closing in on your heart with the worst of intentions.
[I CALL OUT]
I could send you all away. I can see you from the foot of my bed, I can’t make out a face. Don’t ever ask me how I spend the only part of my life I like all locked away inside of a bedroom. On the handlebars of your bike, I rode a wave of emotion I can’t begin to place. And as we sat by the ocean, it crawled across your face.
I CALL OUT.

Frank Turner // The Ballad of Me and My Friends
If you’re all about the destination,
Then take a fucking flight.
We’re going nowhere slowly,
But we’re seeing all the sights.
And we’re definitely going to hell,
But we’ll have all the best stories to tell.

You were an old friend
That covered up your innocence
With bad tattoos of all the bands you loved in high school
The ones you said that I had to listen to all the time

I am on the mend.
At least now I can say that I am trying.
And I hope you will forget things I still lack.

You look good tonight, girlfriend. Can I sleep in your bed?
And when I crawl out in the morning, can I stay inside your head?
