The saying goes that only boring people get bored, and today I was determined to not let that be me. I attempted to busy myself in any way possible; I organised belongings, wrote letters, updated my diary, started a new book and practiced guitar. After that I edited a photo collage for a friend, actually cooked myself some proper lunch rather than the usual yogurt, wrote up a blog I’ve had in my head forever and even had a workout courtesy of my new dvd. Busy bee huh? Somehow though, I was still bored. I wonder if it is just a state of mind rather than an actual lack of activity, either way it was the lowest part of my day, feeling like I had nothing to do.
The highlight of my day was the arrival of my blood donor card! A few weeks ago I had some time to kill whilst in Cardiff so I gave blood, I walked by the advertising sign and for once had no excuses (i.e. I wasn’t feeling ill). I’ve always wondered my blood type (having only received less than certain answers from the parentals) but as from today I can tell you I am 100% certainly O Negative; a universal donor! Woooo blood cells! So now I know I have special type (for those that don’t know, O Neg can be given to anyone, making it really useful in emergencies when there’s no time to determine the patients blood type) I’m going to have to make sure I donate more regularly, you never know when someone might need it.
