Blood :-O

This Tuesday my school did a blood drive and people kept asking me why I was unable to give blood. I have 2 reasons:
1. I'm anemic. I have low blood count
2. I have to get my blood drawn on Thursday, I cannot do it unless I am really,really stupid.

So me and my parents go to the hospital for my asthma/type 1 diabetes/ etc and I had to get my blood drawn. This girl who did it was not nice! I usually get the same person to draw my blood every single time because I know she does good but because she wasnt there I get stuck with a teenager who probably just got out of college. I ask her if she has drawn blood before and she gives me an evil look without responding then jabs the needle into my arm! And not only did she do that but she drew out around 2 gallons of blood, making me ALMOST pass out, my dad had to hold me up when I left the blood drawing room. Needless to say I wasn't really feeling that spify that day or Friday. I still think I am dizzy from it but its probably just in my mind. Then I find out that the doctors only needed around a pint or so! 
The sad thing about this is that this wasn't my first blood drawing mishap. 

This happened about 2 years ago,
I go into the blood drawing room and then a new phlebotomist  walks up to me and says my name very loudly for all to hear.
Me: Yes?
Her: Time to get your blood drawn?
Me: Okay....
Her: (getting needle out) This is my first day here 
Me: O_____________O
Her: Okay now here we go...
Me: WAIT! You have to rub alcohal on the bendy part my arm first and then tie a plastic tie thing around it!
Her: Oops! I'm always forgetting that part HAHAHAHA!(as shes doing that...)
Me: So how many patients have you done so far?
Her: Oh you're my first one! 
Me: O___________O :-0
Her: HERE WE GO (stabs arm waits for like a minute before the needle goes out!)
Me: (in very much pain) Put a cotton ball on it, my arms bleeding!
Her: Well I didnt get a vein so now we'll just have to do it again (stabs the same arm 5 seconds after that! Me,about screaming bloody murder!) There we go all finished!
Me: Please. GIVE...ME....A... BAND AID....
Her: I'm going to have to go ask someone where the cotton balls and bandaids are hang on a second!
Me: (holding my arms so I don't lose too much blood!) 
Her: Here ya go a Scooby Doo band-aid (yeah that makes it much better lady thanks!)
I am pretty sure this lady got fired because I havent seen her since! And I don't go to one of those loopy kind of hospitals, its actually very nice, incase anyone was wondering.

Giving blood is a good thing to do, it helps a lot of people but two of my tips when doing it:
1. Get someone who knows what they are doing
2. If you are anemic,1 pint of blood is enough!

Grr My school is so LAME!

So I talk to the counselor this morning stating that I want to get out of my Sci-Fi class and of course I am still in it now! I have some stories before we get into the whole counselor thing about that class!

Day 1- Talks about how aliens are real and how we will all be reading sci- fi work by one author. 

Day 2- We write down something pointless about this author after reading a 10 page packet interview on him and my teacher goes up to my desk and says: YOU HAVE POOR WRITING SKILLS AND DON'T HAVE THE INNER EYE. Um okay? We'll go with that! Thank you wannabe Trelawney! 

Day 3- We read a pointless story about a creature of space. Too bad nobody cares about this!

Day 4- Teacher goes up to me again and tells me I still don't have the inner eye..... I give him a thumbs up and an odd facial expression of which I don't think he caught onto.

Day 5- He talks about aliens and lectures. I draw a pretty picture of a house and bunnys and other random things! I've tried to like this class but its so, I can't even explain!

But besides that let us get back to my counselor...
Me: I would like to drop out of sci- fi class.
Her: HERES THE DEAL. I CAN'T DO THAT. THE ONLY OTHER CLASS AVAILABLE IS ANIMAL DISSECTING CLASS (it has another name but i forgot what it is. I can't dissect animals without hating myself so that is not going to happen.)
Me: Well I don't have anything else to take. Can I just help you out in the office for an hour or so, or do an independent study?
Her: No the curriculum says we can't do that anymore
Me: You'll have to make an exception for there are no classes for me to take. I have all my credits to graduate. I'd like to learn something my senior year
Her: Well you have to stay in that class. Think of this as a class of fun not for learning.
Me: There are so many people in the class I cant concentrate! (Not true but she did not need to know this)
Her: Have you talked to the teacher about it?
Me: Um no. (For if I talked to him he would probably ramble on about Star Wars or something or aliens!) But sci- fi isn't really my thing.
Her: There's nothing I can do. Be open minded BYE! 
So she shuts her office door after pushing me out of it. This caused me to be very angered and did not solve any problems what so ever!

Then I go to my drama class and get put in a group for a skit with a bunch of freshmen and I can deal with that. So without reading the script they just call out whatever parts they want to be and I get stuck with a character who has 9 lines, most consisting of one word answers. So I tell them this and how I would like it if I could have a larger part if that is ok with them and some asshat of a blonde girl in my group goes:

Thanks for your kind words. I shall remember them when I drop a house on you.

New Classes- YAY

So I meant to post this a while back, sorry for the lateness. So I got put into my new classes this week (YAY!). But of course there's bad news to go along with it: 
I have 2 classes I cannot stand! Those being-

Life After H.S.- UGH! Whoever names a class Life After H.S. just needs to not exist. The name just irritates me. Why not just call it life after graduation or consumer economics part II.

Sci-Fi- Fantasy- Seriously what is this? People are so stupid if they think the students will actually learn anything important and informative in this class.

But anyways let me explain whats so lame about the two classes.
LAHS- So I walk into the classroom and sit in the back with one of my friends. He starts yelling at us right off the bat and goes : THERE ARE SEATS HERE UP FRONT MOVE! So we did. Then he goes around the room asking what we plan on doing after high school. So heres what I say:
I plan on going to a community college and get my basics then major in theatre.
Then he starts spazzing out on me and says:
Me: I don't think its foolish.
So then he spazzes out on me again for about 5 more minutes which I stopped paying attention to after the 3 seconds he started. Then he goes:
To get him out of my face I say: I plan to go into teaching.
Me: Um why not? You're doing it right now (and not very well might I add!)
Him: TEACHING TAKES YEARS OF COLLEGE TO DO! BLAH BLAH BLAH! (he finally walks away. If teaching takes years of college then why is he here?)
Apparently being a costume designer and a journalist is also not a SUITABLE CAREER CHOICE! Yet a football player states that they will be an NBA star and get a thumbs up. Yeah THAT IS A GREAT CAREER CHOICE! Too bad my school loses every basketball game they play!
Moving on.........
SCI_FI_FANTASY- Oh my gosh whoever hired this whack job is an idiot. I swear he got out of the wacky shack. Okay lets review the class shall we:
RULE ONE: ALIENS ARE REAL- ha ha. I gave this statement a very odd look like this =-O, but they are real let me tell you! I mean UFOS AND CIRCLES IN FIELDS! No. Just no. They are NOT real!!! Stop the lies! Oh and we must write notes down to help us understand as stated in class rules #'s 1-20, aliens being real number 1 of course but what else could possibly be that number?!
Then on top of all that 3 trekkie fans are in that class and they try to talk to me which is quite unusual....
Hopefully I can switch those 2 classes!
