1 Year of Blogging - A letter to my future self!

Hi Guys,

Today is an exact year since my first post went up! I cannot believe how fast it has gone. I struggled to think of something that would encompass the whole of a year; I decided to write something for the next one! This letter is not to be opened until 3rd of October 2017...

Dear Runnerella,

How's you're year been? Did it go as quickly as last time? This year was insane! I swear it's only been a month since last October! Wait, no, make that two: one for Christmas and one for my birthday!

Have you joined any more social network? This year you got a blog, Google+ and an instagram- @runnerella_ - (#shameless self promo!) which you are very active on. How many times a week do you post? Up until March (I think!) you posted on Wednesday and Saturdays; now you're just onto Saturdays. 

The reason I stopped posting on Wednesday was because most of the posts that went up mid week were terrible! I didn't get enough time to properly think about them and it was so hard getting enough ideas to go twice a week! Uploading on just Saturday (although this is going up on a Monday!) means that I can focus on everything I upload and can write bits of it all through the week. What days did you upload on this year?

On to a more personal note, what's going on with your sister? Is she enjoying uni? Which one did she end up going to? This year has been a mix between wanting to get away from us or wanting to stay with us so the student debt doesn't pile up. Either way, I'll be taking over the big room! I guess that I've got a lot of work piled up now that I'll need more space for. Why are you reading this... Why aren't you doing homework?

I'm pretty good at studying, though. Apart from maths. We're only a few weeks through the school year and I'm not particularly liking it. Do I end up liking it, or does it stay this easy and boring? Also, how's philosophy and ethics? I get so stressed out during the lessons but I really enjoy the course. I'm excited to move on to the next section because it's Buddhism and (fun fact!) if I was any religion I'd want to be a Buddhist! 

Finally, have you told anyone else about your blog? So far my family and three friends know but that's it. I'm not embarrassed by this, I just don't want to go public with who I am! I started this blog anonymously and when I finish- whenever that may be- I hope I still can be. 

Maybe one day I'll tell all of my internet family who I am but for now I'll stay Runnerella.

Thank you all for reading. This year has been one of my favourites. Here's for the next one! I hope you are all having a fantastic day and please add me to your circles. I'm going to figure out a goal for the year so the more of you that follow me, the better my chances of reaching it will be! All of your support means the word.

Thanks for Reading

November's Essay...

I haven't been feeling very well this month. I took my first day of school- in a few years- on Monday because of how bad it was. Physically, I had a cold. No, I'm not one of those people! (Side note...) It always irritates me when people have a bit of a sniffly nose and then take two weeks off from school. There's just no need! My moto is: have a bit of lemsip and get over it. I'll drag myself into school practically unconscious with a bus stuck in my side and still plaster a smile onto my face. This month, however, I finally admitted there was something wrong.

A day was spent under a blanket with Gossip Girl on. In the end I put 'After Laughter' on and woke up two hours later, confused, wondering why the music had stopped. Even though I felt awful the next day (I always get massive colds!), I went back into school. That day at home did me good though because it was nice to spend some time resting and not being stressed. That's something that I don't do …

A Zillenial on the Eighties...

Now, let's throw it back to the glorious year of 2004. Shrek 2 was hitting our screens, Jeremy Clarckson was hitting Piers Morgan in the face and Maria Julia Mantilla was being crowned 'Miss World' over in China. I, a bit closer to home, was enjoying the early years of life. However, across the sea 'Bowling for Soup' were releasing '1985': a bop that I would only come to appreciate about twelve years later. The song contains references to many pop-culture focal points that I have never understood... until now! It's time for me to explore the eighties! 

First off is 'Whitesnake'. For the past few years, I've thought that 'Whitesnake' was one person (a rapper or something? I don't know!) but it turns out that they're a band! The were a British hard rock band who rose to fame in the 80s, originally formed in 1977. Another band that I believed to be a single person was 'Blondie'. My friend recently went to see them, althou…
