A tiny bit of Life among the writing

I might have written only about NaNoWriMo lately. So here’s a post about what else is happening for you guys who don’t care about me spewing out words like there’s no tomorrow.

Me, doing the driver’s education thing this summer.

Driver’s license: I am currently hard at work with trying to get my driver’s license. I failed miserably the last time, since I was so nervous that I forgot how to use the stick properly. This time, though, I’m hopefully not all that nervous, and we’ve been practising a lot on the stuff I failed on, me and my driver’s education teacher. This is the last chance I have to get my driver’s licence this year, so I really want to pass this time.

Donating blood: So yeah. I’ve been wanting to become a blood donor for many years now, but since I was on a just too high dose of antidepressants for several years, I wasn’t allowed to donate blood. Since I stopped taking the antidepressants, the blood bank has given me several appointments, but never any who didn’t collide with something else I had to do. Until now. First, they tried to make me donate blood five minutes after my driver’s licence test, and there’s no way in Hell I could make that trip in five minutes – not even if they came and picked me up in an ambulance. I texted them and told them that I’m free the rest of the day, though, and they actually moved my appointment! And for once, I’m able to donate blood!

Other stuff: Other than these two points, I haven’t been up to much. Except writing. And three days or so of work.
