Ashley helped ease my anxiety, patiently helping me sort out the things I should keep and things I could do without. He consolidated my shelves and I sorted through my clothes to make room for his things. I gave up half my closet space and my freedom to wear shoes inside the apartment. In return, I gained someone who can help me sort through life’s messes. He is by far, the better half in this unit.

This is the first day of our living together as a unit. Ashley moved out of his home he shared with his roommates in the Southbay and moved into my small one-bedroom apartment in the Valley. The month leading up to the move, Ashley sold all his furniture and downsized the rest of his belongings all within a few days. I, on the other hand, had a hard time throwing away the things I’ve accumulated over the years, convinced that I would be wasting its value.
