City Hall

I went to City Hall of West Hollywood today to find out about the 80/20 buildings being put up in some areas. I did not get very far, the list for affordable housing is closed, consisting mostly of senior citizens and people of positive HIV status. I think my search for affordable housing will begin at the Los Angeles Housing Authority, which I will begin to pursue after I acquire an SRO (single room occupancy) unit downtown. That will happen in the next couple of months. I have to wait to reapply for General Relief since I have already used up all the time and money given to me by the county. I slept in a cardboard box last night, behind a Costume National clothing store. I did not get enough sleep because I did not have a pillow to put my head on and I was not covered up. I had to tuck my sweatshirt into my pants and pull it over my head. It was extremely uncomfortable, so when I got up, I slept for a couple of hours on the grass in a park. I went to a bar in West Hollywood last night, as a last resort, to see if I could find a place to stay for the night. I met one fellow who I conversed with but he could not help me. I am going to talk to him today, he may be able to help me.
