How To Irritate Your Roommate 111

Well, if you’ve missed my previous posts about my horrible roommate, or former roommate, at this point, you can read them here, here, and here!  We are moving on to:

111 – Move out, and don’t clean up after yourself!!

Hannah has now moved out, turns out Rachel pretty much has, as well.  Hannah, however, moved all her stuff out, temporarily made the front of our apartment look like it was the junk left over from a rummage sale, but failed to leave her room in the condition she received it in!  I went into her room, OBVIOUSLY no vacuum had seen that floor, probably, since we’d moved in!  There was some trash left, and I don’t want to get in trouble for it!  She then told me I could keep whatever she left as far as food, which, then also leaves me to clean out the fridge, of which is ONLY a mess because she spilled kool-aid all over it!  She only left me a jar of pickles, a couple cans of sprite and other crap i won’t touch.  Then, as I was going through the downstairs closet, she left her Christmas tree holder, and other crap I don’t want to and shouldn’t have to take care of!!!!  I’m not a happy camper!

In Other News:

My apartment now looks like someone robbed it, but left the good couch, a chair (both of which are Rachel’s, she hasn’t called me back to let me know when she’s coming to get those), and a TV on top of a coffee table.  REALLY pitiful!  And I don’t have one fork in the house, I have 140 spoons, but NO FORKS!!!!  I had a blond moment and apparently bought 2 boxes of spoons, thinking it was a combination of forks, spoons and knives.  Ramen noodles aren’t easy to heat with spoons, unless you crunch them up very finely, still a pain!!!  I haven’t figured out a place to live yet, so I’m stressing out about that, and the job thing!  I tried calling for unemployment, but they love to hang up on you, the recording says there may be high call volume, when I’m calling right as they open, and then says they can’t take my call!!!  I called 5 times today!!!  I’m just a little stressed at the moment!!!

Lord knows I could use one or two right about now, well, certainly not for my, but for my roommate….she needs all of them, if you haven’t read about the issues, read this, this, this, and this!!! She’s back to eating my food, and I have to call her out on it in order for her to do anything! Two days ago, I saw she had mistakenly put my pork, from the freezer, into the fridge, so I switched it out with her chicken, which I know I hadn’t bought. Well, she goes and switches it back, and eats my pork! What kills me though is my friend was able to see what she was doing when she switched the meat, and I asked her while it was happening if she switched it back, she said no, so I didn’t even worry about it, so that ticked me off too, but then I realize she’s a dingbat too….my fault for believing her!!! We’ll get to her in a minute. I go to grab something out of the freezer the next day, and see her chicken breasts still there, and I’m not happy! So, I left a note on the whiteboard for her, and told her she ate my pork, not her chicken, and she didn’t say anything, nor has my food been replaced! You would think you would remember what you bought, or at least know that pork loin and chicken breast aren’t that similar, or at least, when eating it, notice the difference…Noooooooo!!!!! On Tuesday night, I was in the cupboard, where I put my food, and realize my Ramen noodle package of six had been opened, and 3 taken out, and I’m in the cupboard all the time, and know I hadn’t had any Ramen since I put it there. Well, I left a note on that one, and the next day, I see two packages there, not three, I’m not upset over the quarter it cost, but it’s the point, IF YOU’RE GOING TO EAT MY STUFF, REPLACE IT!!!!!!! Common Sense and Courtesy! And the pork she replaces mine with better be just as much as I bought, the last time she replaced my bun-sized hotdogs with the itty bitty hotdogs from oscar meyer…it should be the SAME THING!!!

Not only has the dimwit eaten my food, thinking I’m not going to notice, but she has now begun sneaking her boyfriend in the apartment, AS I’m sitting right by the door! What they do is he calls her when he gets to the door, she runs down the stairs, opens the door, and lets him in and they run upstairs. Again, I’m right here!!!! Now, if he knows I see him, he leaves, but the other nights, they must think I’m dumber than a brick! I am not deaf, after all, I do hear them having sex EVERYTIME!!! It’s just irritating, they need to do it at his house, and see how his parents feel!!! If I only knew where he lived, I’d go have a lovely chat with his mother LOL

Now, for my dingbat of a friend, I call her that to her face, she knows it, she is driving me insane!!!! She is too needy, as she puts it, and I agree! Since we both don’t have jobs, we are bored, but I don’t mind being alone, I don’t need to be around people all the time! My grandma says there’s a difference between being alone and being lonely, and I like being alone sometimes. Even in college, my friends couldn’t understand why I was by myself often. One, I didn’t have that many friends (and that was ok by me), and two, I don’t like feeling like i have to keep people entertained. I don’t have things to do at my house, I’m here to sleep, eat and relax when i think about it. I do feel bad that she’s so lonely, but I know that I, alone, can’t fix that problem. I’m an independent person, heck, I up and moved here not knowing a soul, and she did the same thing, but she is still very clingy to them. I go up to MI to see my family twice a year, if that! She has now clung to me, and I’m not a good person to be clung to, I need my independence, and quite frankly, I get sick of people when I have to be around them all the time, and I’m sure she’s gotten sick of me too. Maybe it’s the times she comes over, and leaves a mess that I have to clean up (Mom, I am so sorry, I now understand your frustration), and that she talks when I’m trying to watch TV (I’ve yelled at her about that quite a bit, but she fails to stop still), or that she doesn’t chew with her mouth closed (she says it’s a nasal issue, but still), it’s just gotten to be too much! I’m not saying I want to lose this person as a friend, I just don’t want to have to be responsible for her entertainment, and I really wish she weren’t so darned flaky!!!! She has a good heart, we just need a separation. We did have one already, for about 4 days, but apparently not enough! Makes me wonder if I could stand to live with a husband LOL

Now, for those of you that don’t know, I moved to Nashville 10 days after I graduated college, needing to get out of Michigan, to avoid the family drama surrounding my parents’ divorce, and figured I’d have much better luck finding a job outside of Michigan, being the highest in unemployment. Basically, my motives were to prove to myself I could make it on my own, and felt living near family would not allow me to be as independent as I needed. Why Nashville?? Well, I became obsessed with the Gaylord Opryland resort, wanting to work there, I even was fortunate enough to be able to follow the GM around for a day as a part of a college assignment before I graduated. I thought I made a good impression, he told me to send him a copy of my resume, I did so, and even sent a copy of the paper I wrote on the whole experience, but I got nothing! I applied and kept getting shut down, and since have given up seeing as now I live in Bellevue (whole other side of town). Other reasons I moved to Nashville (I digress, sorry) were that I thought it’d be a cheaper place to live, and with no state income tax, I’d be in good shape, however, I never realized that because it’s a little less to live, employers may pay you less too!!! I also liked the distance, not too far should i want to go home for a visit, but not close enough, I’d end up at home every month.

It’s been exactly 2 years since I moved to Nashville, and some days it makes me wonder if it’s only really been 2 years!!! I feel like I’ve been through so much since I moved here, between my numerous jobs and traffic violations, however, It should be more than 2 years!!!! Growing up, you think by the age of 25, you’re gonna have it all together, and I couldn’t be farther from that, at this point! I never thought I’d be livin’ on my dreams and spaghettio’s in my little apartment just trying to get by!!! The only difference is it’s Ramen and Mac and Cheese!!!! Had someone told me I would have had this much trouble with jobs, when I was back in college, I would have probably laughed, thinking my college education would be extremely desirable, and I would be the ideal candidate!!!!!! Somehow, though, everything has worked out, I’ve had to swallow my pride, a couple of times, and ask Mom and Dad for money, just to make rent, and if nothing else, I’ve learned now that God has a plan, I’m just not liking this part of the journey, and unfortunately, patience isn’t my greatest virtue at this time. I think, though, lately, I’ve been able to accept the fact that the Lord does pretty much make the decisions for my life, and that I’m not completely in control, and that when the time is right, I will find that perfect job, husband, etc…I have found a great church I belong to, and who would’ve thunk me a church goer in college??? NOBODY, I promise you!!

In the 2 years, I’ve made, and, sadly, lost quite a few, as well, due to a myspace blog I posted about having accidentally letting my roommate’s cat out, and may I just state that we cannot confirm the death of the cat, at this point, I did wait for him to come home, and he didn’t. Can’t say that I miss him, but I wouldn’t intentionally throw a cat out of the apartment, unless I was provoked, say, if it bit me, but these cats are quick, I wouldn’t even be able to catch them!!! I’m a dog person, but can co-exist with cats, or so I thought! Either way, I lost friends, or people I thought were my friends, maybe they were looking for anything to get out of it, I don’t know, again, everything happens for a reason, so they just weren’t meant to be in my life for that long, and now, I’m okay with that, and don’t need people like that in my life!!!!! It was interesting, though, the people that did come to my defense in the situation, Gotta love the ones who make the most random things, that have no effect on their lives, whatsoever, all about them!!! Water under the bridge now! i now know who my true friends are, thankfully!

The only thing I wish I hadn’t gone through was the whole escalator mishap, but again, now I know how much medical treatment costs, and will have to be almost dying should I need to go to the ER!!! Needless to say, I need to be careful where I step!

i can’t say that I ever regretted moving here, I have met some interesting people, had some really good times, it’s just been a rough ride, but it could’ve happened anywhere, really!
