I thought I liked the freedom of leaving my door open, and giving the impression that my room is open to anyone. I thought I didn’t mind letting people borrow my stuff, either.
But that has all changed. Stuff (like money!) has been getting stolen off my desk, and I have also been finding things of mine around the house because they are being “borrowed” and never returned. I am beyond pissed about the way my housemates treat my belongings as if they are their own. I guess it’s cool they feel comfortable enough, which was my original intent, but at this point they have all lost privileges to my things, or even me being nice enough to let them use something. I feel like I am definitely being taken advantage of, and I’m over it. I’m not letting anyone borrow anything from me anymore, and I am going to constantly keep my door closed in an attempt to keep people out. Probably going to invest in a doorknob with a lock when I get a chance, too. This is bullshit, I shouldn’t have to feel this way in a house full of “friends.”
I can’t wait to move the fuck out of here and get a place that doesn’t involve a bunch of lazy, twenty-somethings. I have been over this whole “this is a house full of college students” bullshit. Yes, it is, but when the fuck do you grow up and learn to start taking care of things?!
Ugh. Time to shower and move on with my day.
