I had quite the full on day yesterday - i gave blood and saved three lives in the process, my morals can rest for a while now. Its actually quite a cool process how they make you come back to give more - the first time I did it was at the start of the year and they gave me a pen, a soft toy blood drop and my very own card telling me what blood type i was. Yesterday i got given my blood type on a key ring and there was a girl there giving blood for the fifth time and she had a mug - but the very coolest thing of all that they give you is if you donate on your birthday they give you a box of Roses chocolates!!! Yum, I am so there on my birthday next year!!And i know my outfit is completely boring (except for the red chucks) but yesterday called for comfort and i'd like to point out that the subtle bits of red match the fact that i donated blood - this was completely unintentional.
My blood donation was interspersed with interviews for my new people for next year and sorting out the student film festival that we put on that has its awards night and screenings at the end of the month (we lost our cute little cinema we were supposed to use for the screenings because the owner lost his building lease. So there is mad and frantic scrabbling to get a new venue). We also have market day today, a big gig tonight, a silent outdoor movie next wednesday night, the cultural awards night Thursday, a comedy debate friday, 100th sporting awards saturday and the week after is even crazier!! So i apologise in advance for lack of posts in the coming weeks, but i will get outfit shots - especially for the fancy awards nights. I can't wait for September to be over!!
