Home sweet home

Friends and family back home have been asking about my home here on the islands. It is actually a very comfortable, fully furnished, apartment. This is the first time that I have lived without any roommates or family. At first it was strange, I have never liked falling asleep in an empty house. The first couple of weeks, I really missed having roommates. In Claremont, someone was ALWAYS home. Which meant there was always someone to talk to, hang out with, grab a drink with, but also a lot of commotion and distractions. Even though I still miss the friends I was living with, I now really enjoy having a place to myself. It's easy to keep clean, I wake up whenever I want and it's nice and quiet through breakfast, I wear whatever I want (or don't wear whatever I want) around the house. It's very peaceful and I like my place a lot. The bonus is that I have an extra bedroom for visitors!
