I am scared of needles and I hate the feeling of needles in my body, but I got through it.

It was my first time, so at first I was very scared to do it, but it ended up fine and not that scary at all. 

Also not my arm.... It's not that hairy

I've bungee jumped...sky dived...eaten bugs as a delicacy...even performed stunts like lighting myself on fire briefly as a human torch, but for some reason this is one of my worst fears, and I really don't have a good explanation as for why. But, I want to conquer this fear, at least once, since I believe it's for a much better cause than simply "crossing it off" my bucket list.

First time I donated was at Michigan State my senior year! I was pretty nervous, but it was really as relatively painless as I hoped it was going to be. Was only light-headed for a little bit too, which was one of my bigger fears since I've had issues with that in the past... All good!

I donated for the first time this morning! The man who drew my blood, Julian, was really excellent-- I hardly felt a thing when he poked me. I was expecting to become faint or at least dizzy, but it really wasn't a big deal at all. I'm a little tired now, but that probably has more to do with staying up until 2 AM last night talking to friends. I got there right when they opened, so I was the second person to donate. While we were waiting, I got to know the other girl there who was donating, whose name was Liliana. She was much more nervous than I was and actually ended up fainting. Personally, I wasn't really that afraid going into it, so think it was brave of her to do something that scared her so much.

I got my photograph taken for a blood donor card so next time, I can skip some of the paper work. It was such an honestly painless way to help people :)

Well, it was pretty uneventful, surprisingly rewarding though. Plus all of the volunteers were super nice and gentle. The needle going in was a little painful, but nothing more than a pinch.

There were only a few people there, really, more people need to give blood. If you see a bloodmobile, just walk in and ask for an appointment.

It  just so happened that the NZ Blood Service was doing a drive at my University, and I saw a stall where they were offering to do a quick finger prick test to tell you your blood type. Right then and there found out I was A+ (if only my grades were that good haha) , and they asked if I would be interested in donating around the corner where they had set up a temporary blood drive. I figured why not? Once the forms were all filled out, the process only took 15 minutes (10 minutes of blood draining, and 5 minutes rest). Despite the fact that they had run out of cookies by the time I got back out, I felt a great satisfaction that I had just helped someone in the future that is in dire need of blood.

Painless. Done it regularly since then, and on the bone marrow donation list too now.

No tattoos at the tatt convention for us this weekend...instead we did a thing, a good thing! Today we donated blood, something that due to my hatred of needles was Never truly on my bucket list, but I sucked it up and bit the bullet! In all seriousness it was a great experience, note that all great experiences don't have to fit the criteria of perfect (today was not exactly perfect!) Epic shout out to the nurses, who where amazing, for your daily duties and especially today for dealing with Bryce and I, again aceing in life... Thanks for catering to our extra needs in our time of need, (calling us a cab, shouting the fee, laying us down, if you're Bryce laying him on the floor.... If your me giving me oxygen and reminding me where I am) We both passed out, of course we Both did just to be dramatic! But take note that no amount of passing out or feeling a bit yucky takes away from the fact ~a bit of pain has a whole lot of gain! We helped save lives today, all thanks to Jacky and Mike raising awareness due to one special little man Van. We donated under the group blood group Van positive get amongst it! X P. S Bryce and I looking our absolute best in this photo! Baben we know
