There's something about the holidays that makes you feel incredibly alone when you are single.

And to make matters worse, this break I will have to be incredibly dependent on others. I will not have a car and I live very far from everyone I love. I can't even take the train, because the Antioch line runs to Vernon Hills and Buffalo Grove. And I'm awful at asking favors of people. As it is, Caitlin will have to pick me up from the airport on Thursday because everyone in my family works past 3:30pm.

Now, I'm going to stop this line of complaining before things get messy and before it sounds like I'm victimizing myself a little too much.

According to MapQuest:
From Antioch to Evanston: 45.5 miles (1 hour, 3 minutes)
Antioch to Deerfield: 31 miles (41 minutes)
[Deerfield to Evanston: 14.5 miles (28 minutes)]

I'm sure I have friends who would be more than happy to visit me, or pick me up to do something...but how often? If Caitlin is being kind enough to get me from the airport, who will be wonderful enough to take me to the Crew Break Party on Friday?

I don't do dependent well. Why did my mom have to move to fucking Florida? I want my house back and my room and my address and the fact that I could walk to several friends' houses in a matter of minutes. Dammit.

My parents love you. And I do too. They'd let you crash in my room anytime you wanted. Just call them on up. They wouldn't care at all, or think it's weird. I'll even ask my mom about it for you if you want. Just in case. I'm grateful for the good things in my life too, but I don't have a car either and I'll only get to see everyone I love for like 6 days. So... So we'll have a big love-fest when I get back.

If you want to get up early and drive me to/pick me up from work on Friday, you can have my car for the day. Ditto any other day (except Mondays) over the next couple of weeks.

The problem occurs on days like Friday...when I need a vehicle from 3pm until 9pm or later. Or on evenings when I don't go out until after 6, but I don't intend on coming home until the next morning. So much trouble.
