Finally I can cross something off my imaginary "Things to do before I'm 20" list. I've given up ones like 'first kiss' and things along those lines but there was one I could do all by myself: Give blood.

I've always felt bad about not doing it, but I'm not good with needles and tend to feel faint at the sight of blood (ie when visiting my Grandad in hospital and his drip fell out, or when doing dissections). However yesterday I read this fic (and bawled my eyes out) and it kept talking about how wonderful the people were who donated blood for Justin, and yeah. I did it because of a fic *pathetic* But it's based on a true story, so that makes my reasoning slightly less pathetic, and anyway it's the end result that counts, which is that I showed up and let them take my blood. It wasn't as bad as I imagined, and I think most of the discomfort was caused by my being stressed anyway. I'll almost certainly do it again, if only to get the sticker that I forgot to take this time :P

It broke me. In the info commons. Crying is not a good look.
