I Don't Hate Her, I Just Hate What She Is LikeBecause I’m not in a good mood..
And I don’t know how long I can last..
But my college roommate is ******* me off. She is way too mature for my liking, and I’m not saying I’m immature, but she just never knows how to have fun, or be a little more open-minded.
We come from two different states with two different life-styles. She lives on a farm and I’m from the city of Pittsburgh. And I’m not trying to offend anybody from the states of West Virginia, Virginia or any other place with those kinds of accents, but her personality, plus her accent, just grinds my gears.
I don’t wanna sound rude or immature when I type this, but I’m just in that mood where I don’t care. I’ve had it with her, basically. Don’t get me wrong; she’s a sweetheart and a caring girl, but there is something about her I don’t like.
In high school, I had a bunch of guy friends. I didn’t really have a reason to have so many guy friends except that I didn’t really get along with too many girls. It’s not that I hated a ton of girls or they hated me, I just couldn’t talk about certain things with girls that I could with guys. So I’m pretty used to guys. As a matter of fact, my best friends are guys.
Anyway, at college I met this guy who seemed really nice. We started to joke around with each other because he seemed to be “stalking” me, even though he wasn’t. He just happened to be in the same places I was at the same time. So, we kinda became friends and every time he would knock on our door, my roommate would try and get me away from the door, like she didn’t want me talking to him.
And then he asked to borrow our vacuum cleaner (her vacuum cleaner, actually) and we let him, but my roommate threatened to get her dad on him if it broke.. and then she threatened to have her boyfriend kick his ***. She’s such a ***** sometimes. He’s such a nice guy and she’s threatening him. And not only that, but he’s my friend. He has no interest in her whatsoever.
And then there was one time a whole bunch of guys were standing in the hallway outside our door and she literally pushed me in the door.. as if she was scared of them or something.
She claims she has a lot of guy friends, too, but I find that so hard to believe.
And it’s not even the guys. Her mother treats her like she’s five, and she actually listens. We went shopping at walmart the other day with her parents, and her mom basically told her what kind of drinks she could and couldn’t have. Like.. she couldn’t have regular vanilla coke, but she could have coke zero. Just stupid stuff. And then her mom was lecturing her the whole way back, saying she doesn’t want her at any off-campus parties and blah blah.
And then her mom brought my roommate’s car up to the campus, but refuses to let her drive it because she doesn’t want my roommate driving on the road that she’s not familiar with. She’s 18; a legal adult. She can basically do what she wants.
I just feel like I’m never going to live the real ‘college’ experience.
I’d rather live by myself.
I’ll be happy when I get to go home next weekend.
Sorry if I sound bitchy.. my dog just passed a couple days ago and I’m really upset. I’m just in a ‘I don’t give a ****’ mood about anything.
Honestly , I don’ think it’s how she was raised that makes her like this.. because I was raised the same exact way (my grandparents have custody of me and they still treat me like I’m ten sometimes), but I think it’s just the way SHE is.
And she needs to relax and just enjoy college.
In my opinion, the point of college is to get away from home and try new experiences; to live on your own without your parents/legal guardians. But her parents still come around, and she even brought them up to our dorm which was embarrassing and people were staring at us like we were crazy..
I’m just fed up and I thought it was a good time to snap and just let it all out.
