There’s something distinctly post-colonial in flavour about donating blood. There were many questions asking where I was born, where I’ve been, who I’ve been with; none of the location questions pertained to the area in Asia where most of my relatives were. It was a bit nerve-wracking to see other people fainting and such, but I thought it was worth trying at least once to see what it would be like.
I’ll leave this here for now, until I have a bit more time. I think I might have given up on the idea that I will be one of those people that create “pretty” fanart.
