Plasma is a Fully Ionized Gas of Low Density. And First Follow Friday!


I don't know what the title of this blog post means. All I know is it relates to me newest scheme: plasma.

I feel like perhaps quitting KFC was not my best decision to date. The good news is I don't have an illegitimate child to support or rent to pay. Bad news is that I still have to buy books for cowledge and probably just for myself because I love books and buy them even when I need to save money just because they're my favorite thing. Good news is that one of my favorite people from cowledge told me about this great thing called DONATING PLASMA.

Bad news again, apparently if you update your employment status on facebook to Plasma Donater at CSL Plasma Center, everyone judges you. Here's the thing. Friend of mine is a petite gal and the paying of the plasma goes according to size. She got $70 for one hit. I am bigger than her, but not that big because I lost weight. Too bad I'm not morbidly obese anymore or else I would probably be

Yeah, as if you haven't heard enough of that on the radio. Anyway, you can donate twice a week and at $70+ a hit that's like $140 a week. That isn't bad for summer income. However, this is illogical and frowned upon or so I'm told. Apparently, I am doing what crackheads often do to get money for crack. Well guess what? Crack isn't the cheapest thing around so if this practice can support that then it can support a poor cowledge kid's last two months before school starts. That's when I become a WRITING ASSISTANT. I wrote it in all caps, because I think it's kind of fancy. Fancier than donating plasma.

I once had coffee with a lovely boy and he told me those majoring in creative fields (he was an art major) aren't doomed to unemployment, but have to come about a job... creatively. I think that donating plasma is a creative job hobby way of attaining quick cash. Please stop judging me.

Also, I think donating plasma is even fancier than donating sperm, which I also considered although maybe not because it's actually very difficult to donate sperm. Not... physically... but with like paperwork and steps and the like.

So what do you think? Should I just do it once? Don't do it at all? Do it twice a week and buy books for school and probably for recreational reading, because I'm me and who are we kidding?

Let me know in the comments!

Also, I found another scheme a new way to get followers and made friends! Here is my Follow Friday stamp of approval as made available by

Started a new book today too! Other Voices, Other Rooms. My first Capote. Anyone already read it? Thoughts?

Whata cutie.

Thanks for reading,


  1. HaHa Nick! I say if you've got it, give it and stuff what everyone thinks. They can judge all they like but aren't you helping to save someone's life?

    Have not read any Capote besides Breakfast at Tiffanys but looks interesting!

    New follower.

  2. Hi,

    stopping by for the follow friday
    have a wonderfull weekend

  3. Seriously! I spend an hour on your blog (maybe not ...but some time...duh) to decide if you are for real. :)

    But, being totally honest with myself I found your posts funny and then I thought... I would love to read more!

    Sooo, Happy Friday! ;)

  4. Hello there. It's me again, did you read my first comment? Hope you did. Anyway, second comment here:

    Liked your answer, loved your blog. Keep it up!

    This is my FF answer, feel free to pass by:

    Hugs and hope you have a great weekend,


  5. @ Lan: I like the way you think. I wonder how much blood the human body can live without. This whole thing is a lot less romantic than Twilight, although not by much. Maybe the nurse and I will hit it off as she pumps away my blood.

    Hi, Kyanara! You have a lot of a's in your name.

    Danny, hahahaha I'm flattered. Yes, very real. Flesh and blood. Although not blood for long because I'm trading that in for cash. Thanks for the follow and time!

    Alaiel, yes I just saw it/commented back! I'll stop by!

  6. Hi,

    I love your blog. I'm a new follower just hopping by to say hello.

    My FF:
    Char =)

  7. I don't know this character, but I like the picture! He is a cutie!

    New follower!


  8. Nick, maybe try and limit to once a week unless you really can't live without the $$. We all gotta pay our dues right? I know I'm paying mine :( Hang in there. Us douchy writers need something to moan about after all. Maybe you can turn it all into a novel!

  9. Kristina, that's Truman Capote. He wrote In Cold Blood, Other Rooms Other Voices, and Breakfast at Tiffany's. He was famous in the 50s/60s for writing Southern Gothic fiction and he would hold all these swanky masquerades that he called "Black and White" parties. A lot of famous writers would attend, including Harper Lee. That picture was put up in books stores and all the old biddies of the day were up in arms about how sexual it was. He's an interesting guy.

    Lan, well I found out there's a cap. Only twice a week. I'm having a hard time finding a job after KFC because I return to college in less than two months and no one really wants to hire, train, and then let someone go in that time span. Ah well, all in good time. Someday I'll be the one throwing B&W masquerades with Harper Lee.

  10. Twice a week seems reasonable. I get the dilemma you're in though. And I'll be your Harper if you'll be my Truman :)

  11. Hopping through via Parajunkee's FF.

    I'm having a giveaway on my blog this weekend, please stop by!

    Holjo @ Pedantic Phooka

  12. Lan, that's a plan. I dream of being an author so renounced/popular that I can live off money from sales and just glamour my way through life via NYC cocktail parties and ritzy business lunches and even book signings, which aren't that swanky but I want to do them anyway.

    Thanks, Pedantic Phooka (lovely name), I'll stop by!

  13. Your post cracked me up and I say there are good people that need that plasma, sell away! :) Followin from the SirensSongReviews

  14. Thanks, Rachel! I'm getting paid to save lives. I'm basically a fireman.

  15. Hey I found your blog through Parajunkee's Follow Friday, and I'm your newest follower. I love your blog, and your writing style is great!

    Be sure to stop by Teen Fiction Centre for the latest news, reviews, and author interviews!

  16. Thanks, TFC (woah that's a little too close to KFC for comfort). I'll head over.

  17. As for the plasma as long as you are using a clean facility don't worry about what anyone else says. (When I was a starving college student some of them got in trouble). Congratulations, on the writing assistant position. That will help you tremendously if your goal is to work in publication.
    And your friend is write, creative majors must be creative about getting a job. Blog regularly and try to blog meaningful posts. You can put it on your resume, and it helps you gets lots of types of jobs.

  18. Thanks so much, Beth. I'm trying my best to bring relativity and entertainment to readers.

  19. Just hopping along this fine evening. Hope you have a happy weekend.
