Missy gave me a really sweet gift before she left. She painted me something! If I hadn't dropped my camara in the river I would have taken a picture of it.
My walls in my apartment have been bare this whole time since i've been in Saipan. I suppose I didn't think I would stay this long so I never bothered decorating. I hung up Missy's painting in my living room today and it is starting to feel alittle more like home. I shouldn't get too comfortable though because I will be out of here by next month.
Since I'm staying another year, I have decided to splurge alittle and move to a nicer apartment with a view. I figured that I probably will never be able to afford a place near the beach in California so I might as well live it up over here in Saipan. I'm still deciding between an apartment on beach road towards Garapan or an apartment on Capital Hill that has an amazing view of Managaha island. Both apartments are about $500 a month. The only reason I am leaning more towards the apartment on Beach road is because I wouldn't have to drive down the hill and waste gas to go running all the time. I can simply walk out of my front door and be on the beach in a matter of a few feet.
Still searching though for other places. If anyone has any recommendations for great apartments just let me know.
