blood donation

After years of being too scared of needles to donate blood, I finally just sucked it up and did it when Red Cross was holding a blood drive at my school. My friend Suzanne was an absolute saint and came with me to take these pictures and provide moral/physical support if I needed it. I was a nervous wreck when they were putting in the needle, all chattery and distracted, but otherwise it was relatively painless experience, mitigated by the friendly staff that talked to me about Tarantino movies and ice cream afterwards.
