I knew that calling Phillip was a mistake, but I also knew that I wouldn’t be able to put a halt to this impulse. We were never going to date again, but tonight, I was going to go over to his apartment regardless. It was better than having to interact with my roommates. And it was necessary to stay sane.

I tried to sleep at my own apartment as infrequently as possible. Friends’ couches, ex boyfriend’s beds, my parent’s house, anywhere besides there. I just couldn’t stand it. It reminded of the location where my entire world fell apart. Well, where it fell apart for the first time.
