This is going to being a boring post, because I have this aversion to constant drama and angst in my life, so anyone who is really bothersome I just don't deal with them. They don't stay in my life. Period.
And, although there are a few people I have to deal with that annoy me, I know that 1) After graduation, I am leaving CMU and won't see them on a regular basis anymore; 2) Anyone who does annoy me, is kept at a distance as best as possible - and I definitely don't invite them into my home or try and keep them happy.
And, I must say, being a Theatre major, makes this hard. For whatever reason, there is usually one or two (or more) people in the department who feel they NEED DRAMA. Ick. But, I can deal with it, and I don't let it affect me. I'M IMPERVIOUS!
That is NOT a challenge.
