Repost of Blood Donation Journal because I cannot edit the previous document. Although I have two trips planned that seem nearly impossible at the moment, this contribution on World Blood Donor Day was by far the most challenging. I wrote a new ending to One Way to Bangkok with two songs and recordings that each have a transition or outro in one case. The reason I am doing that though has gotten so bad, there may be no fix.

A few updates from the holidays. I made a quick trip to Jacksonville and ended up watching Christmas Inheritance. The film stars Eliza Taylor, also from The 100.
Today I was able to donate one unit of blood with OneBlood. The first RV appointment in St. Augustine didn’t show up and was the only one that had the apheresis machine in it. Anyways this was my first experience with OneBlood and was short, but sweet. Interesting watching traffic go by from the donation bed. Total of thirty-seven units to date.
