I think that it's been fairly obvious, but I haven't had much time to put up a quick journal.
I recently transferred to a four-year university last fall. It was eventful and I had a fairly decent GPA of 3.0, even though I wasn't too happy with it (despite the surprising fact that my psych. professor boosted my grade from a C- to a B+).
My roommate's great - we both have common interests and all that jazz. Now that she has a boyfriend, she's only here half the time (which doesn't matter to me).
Quick Note: I live in a quad... so there's basically two rooms and a common area. If my roommate's in the room and she wants to go to bed, but I don't, I hang out there until I go to bed myself.
Here's the issue - PRETTY DECENT VENT. Don't like, don't read.
The girl who lives in the other room is in a single, meaning she's by herself. Last Halloween, we stole some candy out from her room (yes, I know it's wrong, but read on) to continue with the kids in the halls for Halloween, where kids from the area trick-or-treat in our dorms. Even though it was my roommate's idea, I ended up getting yelled at because the girl told me earlier about the candy she had, and only me. It ended up turning into this big huge ordeal where I bought her two large bags of candy for her to repay for "damages" (a.k.a. she wanted to eat some of the candy, but never mentioned it) against my roommate's wishes, because apparently the girl has been stealing stuff from our room at the beginning of the semester, primarily from me, and my roommate's actually caught her in the act. The girl's response? "I was sick, that's low to hold that against me". Yes, she was sick - throwing up, feeling overall crappy, and she didn't have money to buy medicine (which makes me wonder why she didn't go to the school store now). No, it's not low - stealing is stealing no matter what. Yes, what we did was bad, but so was what she did. She did try to buy my roommate a bottle of ibuprofen to make up for the one she stole, but... well, my roommate and her pretty much had a silent war of stubborn-nosity (not a word, but still).
We return this semester and she acts like everything's back to normal, but I still feel off and want to avoid her as much as possible, not to add to the fact that she annoys me - she's constantly getting in arguments with her parents and always asks me for a ride back (or back home) much earlier than when I want to go - she's half an hour away from me, and it's in the opposite direction from the college. She paid me for gas money once, but when I gave her a ride home and I made her take the bus back, she never repaid me.
She got into a huge argument with her parents Sunday and she was sobbing pretty loud (we could hear it through two closed doors and I was honestly worried about getting more complaints like we did last semester when she did this) about something ridiculous, so my roommate got an RA to talk to her. Now, she accuses us of having an RA unlock her door on Halloween to steal her candy. Then, she accuses us of stealing a shirt from her room. Funny thing is? She doesn't seem to take responsibility for her own actions - maybe, y'know, she didn't lock her door before she left for rehearsle, or maybe she misplaced her shirt? Nope, first thing she does is blame someone else, and this is coming from a women, four years older than me, who prides herself in being "mature".
I've been trying to stay out of it because as I say, I don't have time for this crap. I'm studying, trying to get papers done, and figure out what I need to work on. I don't need her drama added on top of it.
!!! RANT OVER !!!
So pretty much I've been stressed out from school, which has distracted me from... pixels. Dolls. Anything, really. I'm trying to get written profiles out for OCs, but it's been pretty slow.
