I have already posted pictures of what Tent City this year looks like, and I must say that compared to the spacious experience last year the sleeping experience this year kind of sucks. Perhaps it would be better if I had a tent, but since I don't, I am sleeping out in the open.
When I went to bed last night the first thing I noticed when I walked in was the snoring. There were 4-5 people snoring, one of them VERY loudly. Then, I had to find my air mattress. The spot I have was literally a piece of floor that was near the back, and very small, since that's almost all there was left. To get to it, I have to walk pretty much on the sides/edges of other tents, hoping I don't disturb other people too much. Once i found a path that I was actually able to navigate, I then placed the majority of my worldly possessions with me, including "loose" items from my computer like the keyboard and mouse, on a piece of floor about 24 inches by 6 inches. Sandals were stacked on top of eachother, phone went inside one, and the bag with the computer stuff was placed sideways on the floor. I then crawled into the sleeping bag, and could not sleep at all. The snoring was just too loud. My solution was to just pop my earbuds in and listen to some soft music, just loud enough to drown out the snoring. Stuffing the iPod into the sleeping bag with me, and using my hoodie as a pillow(I forgot mine), I fell asleep.
Waking up was very uncomfortable. I got about 5 hours of sleep, but it wasn't exactly a deep sleep. Getting up, and out of the tent area was just as difficult as getting in.
Needless to say, I'm not looking forward to the next time I'm going to sleep. Hopefully tonight, there will be less snoring. That would actually make all the difference in the world.
So, if you're reading this, and sleeping in tent city. STOP SNORING. That is all.
