How do I get my obnoxious roomie to get OUT OF THE APARTMENT?

My roomie is one of the most obnoxious people I've ever met. She is constantly wandering around the living room talking loudly on the phone, chewing with her mouth open, and just generally being gross. She spends literally around 6-8 hours a DAY watching drivel on MTV, and when she's not watching the TV she's still sitting out in the living room with the iton (but muted) while she writes, reads, eats, types on her laptop, talks on the phone, whatever. Apparently she is unaware that she has HER OWN ROOM. It is driving me insane. In the past three weeks I have seen her leave all of 5 times. The one time I came home to the apartment and she wasn't here, she walked in the door 5 minutes after I did. I can't take it anymore. She is a grad student, she has a boyfriend, why the hell can't she get OUT once in a while? I don't know what to do. I have disabled the TV so that she can't use it, but now she's watching hours and hours of Gilmore Girls DVDs. I just need to survive til my lease is up Unfortunately we are both on the lease and it's not really feasible for me to move at the moment (too much big furniture and too few strong friends). :(

Talk with her and tell her you'd like a little more peace at home. Tell her nicely that you're the kind of person who likes a little more space at home now and then and a little quiet. Mention how she could help by taking some of her calls in her room and giving you some private time now and then. Sharing an... More
