Give blood and give life

Today I woke up really early and went to the hospital. What for?? To donate blood.
Since I turned eighteen (two years ago) I go every year to the hospital and donate blood voluntarily as a gesture and thanks to mother nature to let me live an other year of life. I mean, we laugh, we walk, we love, we listen to music, we do a lot of stuff and sometimes we don't realize what a hard work is to be alive, or the value of our existance, the value of our breathes, our hearts, our minds. So, every year, after my birthday I go to the hospital with my dad and we donate for someone else we don't know but who could really need us.
Also, every time I go to donate I faint very easily. BUT TODAY, people of the world, I didn't!!!! I did a lot of mental effort for not to look at the blood or even the needle, and at the same time I was thinking "I'm a Gryffindor, I am not weak, I'm a Gryffindor!"; and after that worked out pretty well, I started inventing a song that helped me calm down. The nurses looked at me weird :P but I was making myself together so I didn't care.
Walked out from the hospital really proud of myself for not fainting and thinking that maybe turning twenty gave me new super powers. Is it possible?? :D

What I've learnt today: I'm A+

See you soon, dears!
