My Letter to Valentine's Day...

Hi Guys,

This week I am going to be writing a letter to Valentine's Day! I don't really think it needs much of an introduction, so let's get straight into it!

Dear Vaentine's Day,

Hello! It's me, your old friend, Runnerella. I thought this year I'd write a letter to you: just to vent my frustrations. Please don't be offended because everything I say is very much true!

You are entirely commercial. You are a holiday purely founded on the fact that sales have dropped in Clintons and they need the extra money. And we're using the word 'holiday' very loosely here. You go in the same category as Halloween. The non-holidays. The Nolidays, if you will! 

Like Halloween, you're fun in principal,Get dressed up, get chocolate and have a good night. But then you dive deeper and realise how weird it is. Am I not allowed to tell someone that I love them every day of the year? What's so special about February 14th?

I, for one, would like someone to love me all year round! *Obviously I have my wonderful friends and amazing family, but a valentine is different.* All I ask is for someone who is willing to walk home with me on a dark night (I scare easy, okay!?!) Also buy me chocolate, chocolate is good!

But I have lost my point. Valentine's Day: I hate you.And it is not because I'm bitter, I am very much loved; I do not need a valentine to validate me. It's that you are completely irrelevant! Next year, can we promise to leave February alone, and get on with the month without the romantic interlude in the middle? 

And that was it! I hope you enjoyed it! Please follow me on Google + because I'm trying to read 160 followers by March. Have a good Valntine's Day: I hope you like it more than I do!


Thanks for Reading
Runnerella

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…
