I did it all for the cookie
The cookie
So you can take that (err) Wookie (?!?)
And stick it up your, yeah!!
Stick it up your, yeah!!
Stick it up your, yeah!!

Okay, I didn’t do it for the cookies, but the cookies were a definite a bonus. Oh, and the apple juice. That was nice too!

Today was my very first blood donation of the year. Hoorah for easily accomplishable New Year’s Resolutions!

I mean, it wasn’t that easy. I spent the week sodium-loading (what? It’s a thing. No it’s not, but it is now) to make sure my blood pressure would be high enough to donate. I have crazy low blood pressure, which has meant being turned away by blood banks in the past. Today I came in at 98/60 which was high enough to donate. It sucks to have to eat savory deliciousness all week. My life is soooooo hard.

How are your New Year’s Resolutions kicking off?
