(Long Overdue) Apartment Tour

More than a year ago, I promised I would soon be posting an apartment tour.  Soon is relative.  Soon for me can be a twelve month period.  Or longer.

My apartment is still not in the state that I desire. It’s hard to let go of that and put these up for the world to see; but I can show you guys all of the projects I am doing around the place to brighten it up!

Some apartments come fully furnished by the previous NET(native English teacher).  I had a brand new apartment; which was nice, but it also meant I had nothing. In fact, there was no bedding.  I had a plastic wrapped mattress, a TV, and a little nightstand.  I wrapped myself in my quilt, and planned my next move.

I’m so happy with how it’s looking!  This is much more ‘me’.  DSC_0003

I’m still working on this rug.  I’m hand braiding and sewing it.  This project started in November of last year.  Ha!  I really like to take my time. Like I said, I’ll post how the apartment grows with me.  DSC_0006

I nest no matter where I go.  This happened in all three of my university living spaces, and my room back home.  If it’s not decorated, I can’t handle it!

I don’t have a problem.  It’s the rest of the world that’s undercaffienated.

Friends who left Korea gifted me with all of the cleaning supplies I will need for the next year and a half.  I have no excuses for being filthy.  Just my own laziness.
