I've got pictures today! Here are two pictures of me inside the Bloodmobile. We had a literal blood drive that day; I stopped by to give blood after lunch. This was back in April, when I had a beard.
About two minutes after those pictures were taken, the lady came by and hooked me up on the machine. She said she couldn't find the vein, because I was too nervous. I don't know why being nervous makes your veins hard to find, but apparently it does. We tried both arms, and she said I could leave without donating.
Oh well. At least I tried to give blood. Next year, maybe I won't be so scared!
However, I am definitely scared in Picture #3, which was taken on Top Gun, the big roller coaster at Great America. It was my first time on the roller coaster, and nobody told me that it goes upside-down.
The roller coaster was more fun than I thought it would be, once you get over the whole "I'm going to die" feeling. It's definitely good prep for next year's blood drive!
