An explanation of one of the hardest decisions I’ve made and a little bit of backstory.
A personal piece about my motivation, the thing that drives me.
A post about my view of success and how it isn’t a good motivator.
The hierarchy of needs is a fairly important model thought up by Abraham Harold Maslow who was a psychologist made famous by this idea. The model is about what people are motivated towards achieving with the most important being lowest which then builds up into the top level which is usually done after all the […]
I keep seeing posts about banning horse racingon Facebook. The horses can get injured. Once they lose their value they can get killed. All very bad and understandably upsets people. In football people sometimes hit each other with a ball, they sometimes get injured, they sometimes never play again and can’t do what they love. […]
A wise man once said that we should always look on the bright side of life. So why are things so miserable all the time? I saw something about glorifying war. War is glorious. It is extremely useful for producing technology and creating advancements. We use wars to settle political issues, fighting is often the […]
I stopped doing the Old Man Cut Short posts weekly, this may have disappointed some people however I believe this gives me more time to come up with an interesting topic and gives a little more time for me to do something. Let me know your thoughts in the comments. Time for me to try […]
I haven’t been very well recently, I’ve been having some problems with my stomach acid which has been causing me unpleasant feelings. This has made me think about illness. Most people will go to the doctor and get a prescription of some sort to make themselves better, not me. I’m not a fan of the […]
Time, a strange concept. Something that we measure. Something that we waste. How much of it we have is unknown yet we cling to it like the most precious of metals. Time passes by, allowing the world to shape itself. It makes people age and it allows actions to become history. Father Time is lord […]
I am getting increasingly annoyed at myself for not being able to think of what to write. I can do my reviews and I can still see the logic in things so opinion based pieces are no problem, it’s creative stuff I’m struggling with. Looking back at my most recent short story I’m disappointed with […]
Every time I write one of these posts I write about a general topic before going into how my week has been, this time I’ve been thinking about existence. I don’t know what has made me think about existence but it has brought up an interesting memory which may also do something to prove and […]
Beauty, a word that can be used on many things, for many reasons and in many situations. Beauty is prevalent in many aspects of life from animals to architecture and I feel like putting something down about it today. I’ll start with the obvious physical beauty that causes attraction. Some people say personality is all […]
Halloween annoys me. Especially because of the poster in the badly taken picture above (sorry about the quality). Here in England on the fifth of November we have a lovely tradition where we burn an effigy of a Catholic who tried to blow up our royalty. Halloween which is on the thirty-first of October is […]
This time I’ll start with what motivates me: why I write, why I get up and go to work, why I do anything at all really. The answer is simple, one word: Boredom. I don’t care for money. I’ve never had massive goals. I’ve never hoped too much for anything because if you don’t expect […]
