yesterday i gave blood for the first time. it was a very exciting experience.
my neighbor is a parent in a school that has a bi-annual blood drive. she asked me to help out just to keep things running smoothly, and once i was there, i figured i might as well give blood. i have to admit, the needles are kind of big and scary looking, but if needles intimidate me, well, then I'm making the wrong career choice.
i walked away with a free t-shirt, bag, pin, sticker, and a good feeling that i was able to help sick people.
