So i leave for the holidays and check out of my aparyment(no lease), because i didnt feel like paying 3 weeks worth of rent. I now come back and the whole city is booked. Theres not one place that has a room available. Turns out theres the CES thing going on at the convention center. Even mktels have raised their prices over 200%.

So let me get this straight. I come back EXACTLY at the time a major convention thing is going on and now I have no where to sleep. For those who didnt know already. Im cursed and now this was the final nail in the coffin. I literally have the worst timing out of anyone on this planet. Its actually unbelievable.

The CES thing is something most people that travel to Vegas know about...

But, that does suck for you.

You went back to Vegas without booking a place to stay?
It's a piece of cake to bake a pretty cake. If the way is hazy. You gotta do the cookin' by the book. You know you can't be lazy. Never use a messy recipe. The cake will end up crazy.

The places i was calling wouldnt let me reserve and told me to call back on the 10th and one even said that I should be fine because its been slow all week. Turns out that was a huge lie. Not sure what im gonna do now. My last apartment said they will try to squeeze me in somehow in a week or so.

This has to be one of the more ridiculous statements that you have made. How are you cursed? You were unprepared and didn't check what conventions were in town? That sounds more like stupidity than a curse. Every time I go to Vegas I check what conventions or events are going to be there as that affects hotels and taxis. I also prefer when the city is busier cause it makes for better games. Come bud you just need to use some common sense. Check what is going on in the city. GL I hope you can find a place. You might consider driving out of Vegas for a week to avoid CES.

Yea i guess it's a mixture of it being my fault and also not. I mean to come here on the exact days its going on and at the same time i decided to leave my apartment, thats once again pretty unlucky. Why didnt the convention happen the first time arounf when i left to the east coast in september when i still had the apartment. Whatever, i guess its a good lesson for me though, because i never really thought about this possible scenario happening as im still new to this city in many ways.

By the way, if anyone has a couch for a day or 2 let me know LOL. Ill give you 20 a day for the couch, which seems reasonable.

Personally I wouldn't mind.

But, I just check my couch and it was made in China.
