The blood drive was yesterday, and I can remember last year like it was just yesterday. So weird that it’s been a year already. But anyways, it was a very busy day for me. I first visited my family at the hospital because my uncle was getting brain surgery (sounds scary I know, but he is doing well and is resting at home). Then I came to school and helped out with the blood drive, then donated myself. Even though I had already done this last year, I was still nervous. But of course everything was over before I knew it. Although I guess I felt a little more effected from it this time than I did last year. After you’re finished, they tell you not to do anything extraneous for the next day. But of course, stupid me was like ‘oh yeah I can walk up the stairs to fourth floor of Ryan just fine!’. I don’t know why I decided to take the stairs because every other day I take the elevator, but by the third floor I needed to stop and sit down for a bit because I felt light headed. Maybe that’s why it said in the pamphlet not to go up stairs alone…. oops?
Anyways, later that day I took the trip to the botanical gardens to the Coffee Class. Let me just say it was awesome! Workers from Kaldi’s coffee explained to us how coffee is made and sold, where is comes from and how to brew. Did you know there is even a Barista competitions? Like, that’s so awesome! I bet the things they do and make puts my pumpkin spice latte making skills to shame. Anyways it was so informational and the room smelled awesome the whole time. I can’t wait to go again to learn about chocolate and I think I’m going to sign up for the Tea one too!!
