I'm so frustrated right now that I don't even know what to say or how to explain what I'm really feeling. So lets start with this: I love my best friend to death, really I do, but she's starting to REALLY get on my nerves. Normally she's a nice person, really, but she has this streak of snobbery in her that just makes me angry. Its like... anything that isn't "intellectual" is beneath her. And she has a very narrow definition of "intellectual." Because if it isn't depressing enough, it couldn't POSSIBLY be worth her while. It isn't that she's not smart, because she is smart, but she's so condescending about some things! Mostly its forms of entertainment: books, movies, music, the like. Sometimes her attitude irritates me so much that I just have to argue with her, even if I secretly agree (which I don't always), because of the WAY she states her opinions. Its like she's saying any really SMART person would HAVE to feel the same way about it that she does. Its so frustrating! Sometimes it bothers me so much that I just feel like crying and screaming and breaking fragile things into small pieces, all at one time. I don't even think she knows she's doing it most of the time. I don't know how long I can keep quiet about it if I don't find a real person to rant to, and soon. But if I blow up, I'm afraid that our friendship will end, and I don't want that. I just wish she'd keep her affected opinions to herself.
