action!

BE KIND TO ME, I DONATED BLOOD TODAY!!

said the sticker on my chest yesterday afternoon. i donated blood for the first time in forever - the only other time i was successful was when i was living in st. paul, minnesota, and did it for money. i had no money to eat off of all day, before going in at 8 pm, so i donated blood for a half hour, stood up.... and promptly passed out. i am so rock.

so i donated blood, ate some cookies, but still felt way... weird. because i'm an idiot for these things, as i had heard the doctor's talking about how you can become a cheap date after donating blood and drinking beer, i came home and drank a little liquor combination, just out of curiosity. i ended up three sheets to the wind for the remainder of the evening.

and a massive headache today, which is odd, as i only had a teensy bit. meh. maybe they're unrelated.

i also skipped studying for my psych exam to donate the blood. worked out for ME, because class ended up being canceled, so... i'm one of those annoying students, you see, that never studies in advance - i just jot down all the things i need to know right before class, and it causes me to retain it long enough to take the test.. and thankfully for quite awhile after. the ladies i sit around in psych spend practically every waking moment studying, it seems, as they're constantly quizzing each other on the study guide and freaking out if they can't find something in the book. i promise to not let them know that all my tests during my psych 101 AND in this quarter thus far have scored a 93% and above. well, except for the one i lost the study guide for.

ooh, note to self to post the dream i had come crashing back to me during a test in ear training yesterday. fuhreaky.

at the risk of sounding silly and uneducated...

i have many people from Russia on my friends list, and i just wanted to give a shout out to you guys. everyone i have met from your country thus far has been absolutely wonderful and polite. a couple of you had asked what i thought of Russia, and... well, i never knew what to think, to tell you the truth. but if everyone over there is as kind and sweet as you have all been to me? fantastic country :)

i don't really know much about your country at all. i mean, i grew up in the 80's during the cold war when they would frequently show movies like Red Dawn and Hunt for Red October. since the cold war has ended, i still feel uninformed, as every thing i have seen has pretty much only shown TONS of snow. so basically, i guess i should say that i know nothing at all? maybe i shall do some research to see what i can find out, or if you would be interested in sharing experiences with me?

but in the mean time, thank you so much for joining me on my journal, i'm very happy to have you! i'm sorry if i haven't responded to many comments, i just like to ... well, i'm quite behind on my comments, to tell you the truth, though i'm getting a TAD better!
