New Apartment Paradigm

At the beginning of this week, I finally received the keys to my new apartment, so I spent most of my spare time moving the 10 feet from apartment #1906 to #1905. This had to have been the easiest move of my moving life. I was able to carry and drag all the worldly possession that I have accumulated in Qatar all by myself. My move could not have come at a better time since my boys will be flying to Doha in 17 days. Now I have adequate space to host them and future guests who wish to visit me. Additionally, I can host a belated-birthday/house-warming party before the end of the semester.

The following are some hastily snapped and edited photographs of my new digs. If interested, please come visit and stay with me!

Hallway leading from the entrance and the kitchen. There was a screw already drilled into the wall by the previous tenant, so I was able to hang one of my canvas prints.
My new apartment has more space so that I can have a dining area and fit two couches into my living room.
I am using the “guest room” as my bedroom. The room has a fantastic floor to ceiling window. I don’t know how I will install curtains in this room.
The “guest bathroom” will also serve as my personal bathroom. It is smaller, so I need to figure out a storage arrangement for my personal care products.
The “master bedroom” will serve as my guest room and spill-over entertaining room. I am also keeping some of my plants in this room for the time being.
I just purchased a second day bed in preparation for my sons’ visit. I also plan on turning all the mattresses in this room into majlis seatings when I host future gatherings.

My apartment has a bigger balcony area off of the main living room area. Now people don’t need to walk through my bedroom to access the balcony, unlike my previous apartment.
View of Lusail, the Pearl, and the Arabian Gulf from my balcony. This will probably be the only time that I ever live in oceanside property during the remainder of my lifetime!
