I’m really frustrated because I haven’t donated blood in almost a year. As a freshman, I donated four times in ten months, pretty much the maximum. But ever since getting pierced (ear cartilage) last November, I stopped being able to go. The wait time is supposed to be a year but soon after that, I got tattooed (left pelvis) in January and pierced again (navel, right nipple) this August. I have a long time to go before I can donate again.
I was complaining to JB about this while in class yesterday morning. His response? “Well, I can’t donate ever.” I suppose that puts things in perspective. At some point, enough time following my tattoo/piercings will have passed for my blood to be deemed safe. But homosexuality isn’t really something that fades with time. Ignorance does, though. Here’s to hoping.
In other news, this weekend is going to be ridiculous. I will either be getting a lot of action or none at all. I will either be getting totally fucked up or not at all. We’ll see which extreme it is.
