This past week I donated blood and started taking a cake decorating class. What would these two random things have in common? Well at both places I was asked to fill out a scantron sheet. I haven't had to fill out a scantron sheet in many, many years and I just thought it was so odd that I had to fill out two in the same week!
Okay, on to donating blood. I used to donate about once a year, but I hadn't since 2001, so I thought I better get back in there. I have O- which is the universal donor and anyone can receive my blood. Only 7% of the population has O- so I am going to try to go more often. They also say that less than 5% of the population that is eligible to donate blood do so. So if you have time (it only takes one hour), donate blood and be a hero.
I don't have too much to say about the cake decorating class since it just started, but I am excited to learn some new techniques. Stay tuned for some pictures in the following weeks.
