I thought today was going to be just another day at work.
Don’t get me wrong, a year plus into my job and I still love it, but it wasn’t just another day in the office.
After I was done donating I had some juice and cookies and went back to work. I knocked a few things out and cut out early because I was hungry and kind of tired.
It wasn’t until I got home that I really started thinking about what I’d done. Sure there was the whole, “I squirted blood out of my body into a bag,” thought process. There was also the, “I just did something that can help six people.”
So I sat and looked at the little red spot on my arm and thought about what I did.
All I really did was sit there and make goofy faces and joke around a little because I was nervous.
It’s what we talk about a lot at The Job, though. We’re trying to get people to look at volunteering in a new light and this is one of the ways we can do it.
The simple act of sitting in a chair for a little bit helps people. It helps people who are in no position to help themselves when they need the help that I gave them.
So, today was a pretty awesome day at work. I’m excited for tomorrow.
