Back in July I thought it would be a great idea to start a movie club. I got all my roommate and a friend and my roommate's friends to come over. We were gonna keep it small because covid. Fast forward to August. Some basic drama happens, not anything bad. Roommate and I have small riffs, we talk it out and things seem fine (or she tells me we are chill). Now for this next part, I get that we all vent. I get it. I vent about her to my friends. But side bar, when a friend vents to me about someone in their life I dont immediately think they are a bad person. I am just like "ah these small things are bothering my friend right now things will be okay with them. I trust my friend will end things if it gets bad because they are smart." Anyways. Recently said roommate and friends have been playing fortnite alot. Staying up all night. Roommate has a job but I guess video games are more important. Anyways. Sorry. Venting. ANYWAYS. we have movie night last week, my friend can't come. We host dinner. I buy everything for dinner because my roommate is currently broke. She makes the dinner, her friends come over to our apt. All they do is talk about fortnite. I getthey are good friends. They all went to high school together. Anyways I feel hella unwanted. So I give up and go to my room. I am like "whatever I am not feeling emotionally alive anyways. I need to self care." I leave. Things feel weird anyways. Next day, my roommate is mad at me, she won't admit it and then finally talks. Tells me what is wrong and I am like cool. We fix it, move on. I ask her if her friends are chill with me because they seemed. She tells me not to worry. Fast forward to today. First week of remote teaching done and I just want ro relax and like forget I am a teacher. I mention tomorrow bringing a friend to movie night and am told "oh I am going alone. My friend doesn't want anyone else there." I respond, "um am I getting kicked out of my own movie night?" She is quite and then responds yes. Supposedly I find out after a serious of questions that my roommate has been shit talking about me. And not just like venting but literally shit talking. She finally admitted that she has "extremely exaggerated things to make me sound worse". So now her friend thinks I am toxic and terrible. Called me many shitty things about told my roommate to kick me out. Then my roommate and i got home and she started to cry and said I made her feel bad because I was upset. Hours later I apogixed to her and she said "thanks i am happy now" Life man. Don't start movie clubs.
