October 20, 2008

Ok so I’m going to do my best to try and stay coherent, given that I am incredibly tired right now. Navid didn’t end up finding anywhere for me to sleep last night and so I spent my first night outside. My friends Sonja and Stacey have a weird patio thing near their apartment and I had been planning on using it the first time I had to sleep outside, although I was hoping it would be farther into the project (I can’t sleep in the same place twice outside either, so next time will certainly be more unpleasant.) Once I stopped feeling sorry for myself, it turned out to be a pretty nice experience–it was a beautiful night out, being serenaded by the faint sounds of the 405 while gazing at the roughly fifteen stars not succumbing to the light pollution. Seriously though, it was beautiful and really not that cold… which is just about all I could ask for. The couch was comfortable, but small, leaving me to either curl into a ball or hang my feet off the side; I would switch between the two each of the numerous times that I woke up. I had to get up at 6:30 for class, meaning I didn’t get many hours of such fitful sleep, but did get to avoid any awkward confrontations with the other residents of the building.

Tonight I get to choose a new starting point and my friend Lindsey has agreed to let me sleep over, which should hopefully put me in a position to go more than three places in a row. C’mon, really? Three? I’m pretty sure we can do better than that.
