I mentioned yesterday that I was planning to take a short trip. I did and it was a very short trip. In fact, it was only about a kilometre from where I’m sitting at right now at Gerstein Library. I went to do something that, to my great embarrassment, I haven’t done until now: donate blood.
It was neither as time consuming or bad as I imagined it would be and I think I might start doing it as often as I can
If you’re in Canada, check out Canadian Blood Services to find out if you’re eligible to donate and where you can do so. It’s pretty important that people do give blood and it’s a good way of helping someone out even when you’re an almost broke student. Plus you get juice, cookies and an awesome pin (as pictured below).
