Entering into my 3rd week here (wow, it's been that long??) I'm starting to feel out my two roommates.
La... she's a PITA. Pain. In. The. Ass. If she isn't gushing about her boyfriend she's complaining about life or trying to act like she's the most mature creature to ever walk the planet. But, thankfully, she's almost never here. She only slept here 2 nights last week, so maybe she's in the process of getting a room transfer. A girl can dream.
Ly is harder. There are days, like this past Thursday, that we get along great. We were laughing and joking, had a post-it note war, it was a great time. Then there's times like today. She came back after being home for the weekend and was chatty at first, cheerful and nice. She produced a shelf that she'd made for my bed, told me it was a gift for me, so I could have my alarm clock closer. She was so excited she had to put it on herself. It is severely cool.
I'm in the process of putting my alarm clock on the shelf, praising her work and she looks at me all the sudden and says, out loud, "I'm going to put my name on it, so you don't steal it when you leave."
First off... what happened to it being a gift?
Secondly... WTF? Better put your name on it so I don't steal it. Thanks. Thanks bunches for that accusation that I'm a thief.
So she writes her name in magic marker across the shelf.
Insulted and confused, I head out to watch some TV before a friend comes to pick me up. She comes out to chat some more and is relaying how people keep asking her about her roommates...
"Yeah, my friends keep asking me about my roommates, if I like them and I keep telling them I can't tell. The one (La) is a pain who is always talking about her boyfriend or whining and the other one is really weird. I don't know if I really like either of them."
I'm not kidding. She actually said that to me.
I'm homesick and PMSing, I don't like the area or the people down here, I haven't found a job and both my roommates are driving me insane. Thank god I like my classes or I'd be tempted to go home. I think I need to knit something in garter stitch.
