The Beginner’s Habit Program & Sea Change followup

Earlier this year (The Beginner’s Habit Program & Joined Sea Change) I joined the Sea Change program, all started out fine, as often is the case when I start on something new.

I will be…

Blood donation I have been giving blood donation for several years now, maybe not as often as I should but at least regularly. They (Blood donation centre) even call me from time to time to ask if I have time to come and donate. They 'like' me since I'm O-, meaning that my blood can be used by any person no matter what blood type they have. So in cases where they don't have time during an emergency to determine…
