October 31, 2008

Last night was the first night where I didn’t actually see my host.  I talked to Victor around nine to let him know that I was going to a friend’s Halloween thing and see if I could come over after.  He just told me he would leave the door unlocked and to come in whenever; I got a text around 12:45 saying that he was going to sleep and I should just lock the door after myself.  I had been planning on leaving right about then because I didn’t want to be too much of a burden, but ended up staying another half hour since he was going to sleep anyways.  Having to coordinate my schedule with someone else’s has definitely been the most wearying part of this project… I start dreading it in the afternoon and it doesn’t really go away until I call.  It’s a matter of finding a precarious balance between my social life, the social life of my host, and where those two are going to intersect for the night.

I left around 8:30 this morning to get some things done before work, but no one was up… making for a pretty crazy night on a total stranger’s couch.  Their living room was way intriguing though, stuff everywhere (quite a bit of it art) and three or four couches–not that I did more than just glance around from the couch I was sleeping on.  Whoever lives there seems really interesting and hopefully I will get a chance to actually meet them in the future; I can now say that I’ve stayed at the treehouse though, one of the most infamous of Westwood apartments.  I’m slightly concerned about tonight: Halloween, combined with not having talked to Victor face to face, might inhibit me getting a place for this evening.
