You guys, moving is stress-ful. Not just the logistics of it (what to bring, what to ditch, when to book a U-Haul, etc), but also just the little things that come up when two people’s extremely different tastes and priorities merge (or diverge) in a common space. The merit of an accent wall can be disputed for days, while debating just how many action film Blu-rays really need to take up residence in our new home can wind up being an hours-long battle. Let’s not even get started on electronics, action figures, accent pillows or colour palettes though…any of these topics just immediately spell disaster. I don’t even think this is a male-female cohabitation-specific situation – I feel like almost every time I’ve moved in with anyone in the past, be it a friend or otherwise, decor and space allocation become the most hotly disputed thing.
So anyway, I’m not going to waste breath on this post talking about how much I love these new Gap Canada boyfriend shorts (but yeah, I do, so comfy). Instead, I want to get straight to the point/unabashedly plea for help…how in all of God’s green earth are two people supposed to agree on a tiny apartment’s mutual aesthetic and functionality? Those of you in long-term live-in situations, feel free to chime in right about now.
