I'm in my final year and I have this friend that i'm kind of stuck with because we live close to each other and I drive her (she puts in half the cost of the petrol). We spend about 3 hours travelling together each day. She also sits next to me in every lesson...
What's been bothering me is the way she talks about people and seems to think she is better than everyone else. I get on with everyone in the class and get involved in discussions every lesson. on the other hand, this friend never puts her hand up in classes and hardly ever speaks to anyone apart from me. As a result people just think she's quiet.
But when we're alone she's always saying things like "isn't it strange that everyone is saying *something* when I know *the opposite*" If I don't agree with her, she just seems dismissive, as though I must be just as wrong as everyone else. Half the time I don't know where she is hearing what "everyone is saying" as we're together the whole time and I don't hear it!!
When the table is discussing something, I want to be involved in the group discussion. but this friend talks to only me which means I'm listening to her and also cut out of the group discussion.
I don't even know that she's as clever/ correct as she says as I only have what she tells me about her exam and essay grades to go on, rather than her coming across as an insightful person. She's also quite demanding on me while making me feel unsuccessful compared to her.
I wonder if I'll survive the year....
...and I'm jealous
