Unpublished.

I have a lot of post drafts in my database and most will never make it to the ‘net because they are no longer the content I want to read. I have a lot of ideas in the spur of the moment but once I’ve got the words out I sometimes don’t like the post, don’t want to publish it or simply don’t want to finish writing it. As I clear out my drafts and put some of these posts to bed I thought I’d give you guys a sneak peak at what could of been.

Not all those who wander are lost

Months ago I watched the secret life of Walter Mitty and I remembered this quote ‘not all who wander are lost’. I then started to analyse the meaning and ramble about other cheesy life quotes. Sentimental shit deserves an outlet but then it needs to be tossed in the trash. Unpublished for a good reason.

Understanding allergies

This post idea means a lot to me and I wanted to write it but I couldn’t find the time or words in order to do it justice. Allergies are a serious subject and I’ve had experience on both sides of the spectrum. I’ve been given injections, taken steroids and discovered in far too much detail the physical effects of allergic reactions. I’ve also watched loved ones go through the same mill as well. There’s been a lot of a&e trips over the years due to allergies so it’s not that I don’t have the experience for this subject, I’m just not a doctor and a topic like this should really be left to the experts. Here’s some useful links however because I think it is very important to raise awareness of allergies, particularly food allergies.

Pokémon Go

Very old draft now about Pokemon Go, I really enjoyed it when this game came out and I spent a lot of hours walking around town and huddling up to strangers in the hope of catching a charizard. Wow looking back now it was slightly weird and I may have got too into this game. Tbf this is probably why I don’t play games much, I’m too competitive.

Why it’s ok not to have a hobby

Someone asked me what my hobby was and I had a bit of a quiet ramble in my drafts about how it’s ok not to have a hobby. It went something like… why do we need a hobby, is it not enough to work long hours, come home and balance a house and family. How do you define an acceptable hobby that society will accept because unless it’s sporting or craft related, odds are it’s not good enough. This wasn’t as much of a rant as it sounds but I’m over this topic now so in the bin it goes.

So there you go, a sneak peak at a few of my unpublished posts and probably some ideas the copycats can steal 🙂

    I’m the same. I’ve got loads of drafts that will probably never make it onto the internet properly.

    I actually really like the idea of the ‘why it’s okay not to have a hobby’ post as me and a few pals were discussing the very same thing the other day, how a lot of us don’t have hobbies as such, yet still seem to be incredibly busy x
