Slice of Life: Housing Grievances

     Haven't done a slice of life post in a while, so I thought I'd just sprinkle dump in a bit of what's happening. Since this post is about grievances, you may want to give this a pass if people complaining isn't your thing. I love complaining. So when I love something you better believe it ;).
So at my school, housing is done by the lottery system. And me and these two other people already decided to live together, but we needed 1 more person, and a good number to boot. So we pulled in this other girl who girl A knew. BUT for some reason girl A and new girl (girl C) somehow decided that they can't live in the same room together, and me and girl A already tried living together for 2 wks (it didn't work). So girl A lived with girl B, and I lived with girl C whom I've never met in my entire life.
Let's just say we have very different living styles. I care about keeping things hygienic and not having random pieces of dirt and stuff, she cares more about having big things like clothes put away neatly. But she also put people's bananas in tupperware. I don't understand that. Banana bags have holes for a reason.
Then then girl C got really moody saying how she wanted to move out because I don't talk to her but I talk to everyone else. HAH. Ok. First of all, I only talk to girl A once every 3 days when I see her, and that's only to comment on the TV show she's watching. I talk to girl B more cuz I like her more. And finally, when I talk to girl C, I feel like she'll talk my ears off. I get tired. She talks on the phone for hours every week. But then she said it was the period talking and decided to stay.
PLUS, actually at that point I really didn't mind if girl C left because she appeared to be so two faced to me. Pretending to want to help people in front of them, then throwing them under the bus and complaining about them loudly when they're not there. Also, this is probably my greatest grievance against her. It happened one day when I and a friend were discussing a mutual friend's situation. We weren't gossiping, I'd like to note! It was just an "updating" (Even though he told us both himself already) kind of thing where you go, oh so you know what's going on with them right? Then girl C jumps in out of nowhere and goes "I HATE PEOPLE LIKE THAT, SEE, BLAH BLAH BLAH". I honestly felt like someone had slapped me in the face. You're telling me that you're dissing a FRIEND of mine who you haven't even met? I don't keep a large number of friends (Either I like you or I don't) but the ones that I keep I adore dearly. No matter what they do. It's like family, you can't help it.

From then on it was just all the little things. Like staring at me every time she passed (creeper much? or is it just that I'm soooo beautiful-psh yea right), not only looking at my computer but reading the screen (what happened to privacy), touching my stuff (someone called my lifestyle ordered chaos- I throw stuff around randomly but I know where it is- if you move it how am I going to know where it is?! Especially if I keep all my stuff on my side), putting shea butter in her hair and not washing her hands after: touching a bunch of other stuff- effectively making doorknobs and sink handles oily and sticking pieces of her hair to the wall with the butter.

Then Girl B graduated, so there was an opening, and girl D moved in. She seemed kind of nice. Then Girl A moved out saying that girl D was too loud. Girl A is a bit of a drama queen so I didn't believe her until I was rudely awakened one morning by the loud thuds of girl D in the living room shifting around books. I'm a medium sleeper so it's not so easy to wake me up. Girl A is a deeper sleeper than I am. I finally understood and I owe girl A an apology. Then all of girl D's loudness was noticed. Like how she has super loud alarm clocks that can be heard in the living room with 5 different tones/ songs. Like how when she does ANYTHING (walk, wash dishes in the morning, move, ANYTHING) it's super loud. When she talks she screams. People are sleeping, shut up. Also, she says she wants to be a doctor. I'm scared. The girl is half blind and deaf- or at least she seems like it. She's sooo focused on keeping things clean, but she doesn't realize that she's making new messes. BIG things will drop and she will have not seen nor heard it. Like how in the convenience store she brushed past and a thing of starburst fell and she just did not notice. Or when she was taking something out of the fridge and a big chunk (half a fist) of veggies fell out. She will be the surgeon to leave the scissors in a patient's stomach.

ALSO, she eats my stuff without asking, who does that. She ate my half gallon of ice cream without me even noticing. I was more upset about the not asking than the ice cream (diabetes runs in my family). Told my parents and they used the chinese saying "flowers in the field smell better than the flowers at home". Traditionally it's used to mean something like other people's wives look more appealing than your own, but my mom applied it to food. LOL. Told mom there was no need to replace it, just a few weeks and this'll all be over but she replaced it anyways ^^. And gave me strawberries. I really have to thank her this mother's day.
With girl A & B out of the picture I'm essentially living with two strangers. I hate it. AND girl D came in throwing away everything. I was like WTFroodle?! that's not your stuff, don't touch it! She tried to throw away my piping tip, literally picked it up and said, "What is this? I'm going to throw it away". She did find my rice cup after girl C stashed it somewhere weird, and for that I am grateful.

Girl C just walked in and closed the window I had open (it is such a nice day out) then she walked right back out. I was like.. uh... I wanted that open. So then after half an hour I opened it right back up. Good thing too. She came in after a shower and assaulted my senses with super fragranced stuff. It's not even smells that go nice together, they all clash. Stuff that smells too strongly always burns my nose. She didn't look too happy about the window, but like I care. Once when I had been studying the entire day for an exam the next day, she came in loudly talking on the phone. Why can't you do that in the living room. Why. I even used earplugs and played classical music on top of that. Didn't cover it fully. I couldn't go into the living room cuz girl D was there making her loud noises too.
Also, they tried to make me clean up this nasty mess under the toilet seat that I didn't make. It was made of some period blood and something dark brown. I'd seen it there for a month but didn't have my period then, so I ignored. Seeing as how it was there for so long, I'm pretty sure it was someone else's turn to clean it way before mine. Also there was diarrhea splashed on the bowl rim. I cleaned the diarrhea (which i didn't do), but when i saw that no one had replaced the Chlorox wipes that I had bought, I literally said "F that sh*t" (which I never say, but I was highly stressed about studying on top of that) and decided not to clean the period stuff. Why should I be the only one buying cleaning supplies?!  Not one week later, there's diarrhea splashed on the rim again. Whoever it is really needs to see a doctor if this is a daily occurrence. I'll spare you the picture (yes I did take one).

All these little things (and more!) just annoy me to death. And I'm just trying to get through these last few weeks, UGH. I call my mom multiple times a week now. I've never called her so many times in the three years before combined. She really earned mother's Day this year.

Look! I even have a gray hair growing!
