Bone Marrow, FTC, and motivation

on Bone Marrow:

So I put myself on this list for bone marrow transplant availibility. They told me that if I’m chosen as a match for someone they’ll put me under anesthetics and jab a needle into my hip and draw just enough to help someone who is dying. GREAT! I figure… what a wonderful way to help someone (while I’m asleep, too!)…

What I didn’t realize was that they would need a sample of my blood. And that I wouldn’t be asleep for that.

Who knew it would be so hard to squeeze 5 half-inch diameter circles of blood onto a piece of paper? Blech!! ^_^ i’m such a wuss — i jsut kept reminding myself it was for a good cause!


FTC was great… I think I re-found my motivation for many things. For the first time in a long time I felt the way I did back in high school about life. =D I think things are going to go up from here.


I came up with an idea for a story today. Not one of my angst-filled ones, though it does have some measure of sadness and whatevers. No, this is more along the lines of the kind of thing that I would have written years ago before I thought that I was a good writer.

The kind that makes me laugh.

It’s going to start something like this:

Hi, my name is Kim and I’m a 19 year old girl who just started her second year in college. Everybody thinks I’m a regular girl with strange habits. What they don’t know is that I’m a super hero. Not just any super hero, I’m a super hero from the planet _____! I came here in search of the perfect gumdrop and to save the world from the evil candy mongrels of the planet!


I don’t have the details worked out yet… but you get the idea.


She never imagined that she would be able to fall into such a comfortable and warm love… A love that embraced her when she was cold and alone — a love that would help her through the greyest days. She never thought that anybody would be so perfect for her…

It’s you and me against the world, baby.
