Today I gave blood for the first time ever.

Although almost puked because I was so dizzy, I feel like a good citizen and whatnot.
Hang and I got our hall passes to leave class!

Look at how scared I am while I wait to get processed. Yes. That is genuine fear right there.

I have to admit the free t-shirt they gave me made up for the mild discomfort I felt when they put that scary needle in my arm. My friends Hang and Sayra were supposed to give blood at the same time as me, but both of them forgot to bring photo IDs--- not to mention Hang is underweight and would have passed out as soon as they stuck her with the needle. The person taking my blood said that my blood was really thick and took longer to draw than usual, so I had to squeeze a makeshift stress ball the entire time. I have no idea if that's good or bad... The guy who prepped me was really nice and flirty and made me feel more at ease during the process. I think his name was Chad.

I got my Pottermore email today! I am now OFFICIALLY a Ravenclaw. If you want to add me, I'm DragonAuror4!


  1. *Does Ravenclaw dance*
    We are just the coolest.

    And yay for donating blood! I don't weigh enough to give blood... sigh. But I think I'd be afraid to do it. Even though I want to. Free shirts would probably be enough to sway me...

  2. Grrr... I didn't get into Pottermore early and now I have to wait until October. If I'm not a Ravenclaw I may cry though, legit tears. I have never given blood, needles scare me and the sight of blood makes me super dizzy, I would never survive the ordeal.

  3. yay for your free t-shirt! and well done for giving blood. i want to...although, i am super scared of needles.

    yay!!! Ravenclaw!!! :D:D:D:D
    i have added you, i am spiritstone15

  4. I nearly passed out from giving blood. Serves me right for being so thin. :\

  5. I've never given blood, but's something I've wanted to do for a while. I mean, it's such an easy thing to do, and yet the positive impact it has can be literally life saving... I've really got to get out there and do it a few times.

    Kudos to you for doing it. Really.
