Blood and Paint

I’m moving to Arlington on Sunday, but before that, I’m donating blood and painting my new bedroom!

The Washington Nationals are hosting a blood drive tomorrow, and I’m going at 11:30am to donate.

When I was younger, I used to donate every few months, but in the past few years, I’ve been turned down because I didn’t have enough iron in my system.  Hopefully tomorrow I’ll be successful.

Though the initial prick of the needle is uncomfortable, the 20 minutes it takes to donate a pint is totally worth it, as donating that small amount can really save lives.  If you have a blood drive at your office or community, you should definitely consider participating.

Similar color that I'm painting my room with.

Actual moving day is Sunday at 9am.  Can’t wait!
