When I was checking in at the dorm today, I met the girl who was supposed to be my roommate. She was moving in, what appeared to be, everything she owned. She had her whole bed piled with stuff and her family was moving more stuff in. I was doing my part of the room inspection and I noticed a circle in the window. Apparently, this was enough to make the girl’s grandmother go to the dorm manager and demand another room. The girl claimed it was some clerical error, but let’s face it…her grandmother didn’t want her in the room. (She specifically said that she didn’t want her in the room, so it isn’t an assumption.) My mom thought the woman didn’t like us, which is probably true, too. She (the grandmother) tried to tell my mom to let go and to let me spread my wings. She didn’t realize that it isn’t my mother keeping me at home every night…it’s me. When I’m just having classes every other day, I don’t see the point in staying in a dorm 24/7 when my house is just on the other side of town. Also, there’s the overwhelming anxiety that I feel when I’m not at home. Oh well, the grandmother didn’t know me or my family, and if she had, she wouldn’t have wanted her granddaughter in the room with me. After all, who wants their beloved little angel in the room with someone who is, at times, delusional and psychotic? It was enough to keep my old roommate’s friend from leaving her son in the room when I was there.
Oh well…I may or may not meet my new roommate on Friday. Maybe if I scare that one away, I can have my own room. I won’t use it, but it’ll keep me from thinking that the person in the other bed is an axe murderer.
My dad saw the wife of Jackass/Satan’s Spawn last night while we were out walking the dogs. He told her that she could go tell her husband that we clean up after our dogs, which she’d seen across the street after my mom and I caught up with Xander when he ran out the front door. I was proud of my dad, but at the same time, I was even more paranoid. I thought that Jackass/Satan’s Spawn would come after us or, worse, the dogs. Luckily, I was able to distract myself with SNL last night which was a repeat of Kate Winslet’s appearance. YAY! 🙂
