handholding

(no subject)

Well, as the days to Terminus close in on me, I'm finding myself stuck. Here's my dilema.

Let me first say this, that I am not looking for sympathy in this matter. I'm not looking to give you all a sob story and hope that someone will let me in their room. I'm a costumer, I'm a very difficult person to house, particularly when there's already 4, 5, 6 people staying in a room. I know how crowded that can get and I completely understand that I'm mental for asking to squat in a room for free, particularly when the room rate is so high. Beggers can't be chosers, I know this.

I've got no room to stay in, which is alright. I've got no money to pay for parking. I've got options, though. Particularly Chicago's amazing public transportation at my disposal, which would still cost money but not nearly as expensive as it would be to drive and park for 4 days in the middle of down town Chicago. I live approximately 45 minutes away, which would mean just about a half a tank for a round trip into the city every day. I can't really do that, but if I've got no bed to sleep on it may come to that. But I've got friends that I desperately wish to see and be with. I've got many expecting me, and I don't want to let anyone down. It may come to it that I just not bring costumes and wander about with my camera, taking massive amounts of photos for everyone. But like I said, I'm a costumer. I live for it. It will be extremely difficult for me to do that.

I'm just not sure I can do all this running around.
