tonight i sat down with b for that talk about the rent situation, calmly, without accusation. turns out l has been paying rent; she pays a few months at a time when she gets her disbursement. b was surprised that i thought she wasn't paying; i said that i had thought that if rent was going three ways, my share would go down. since it hadn't, i assumed. my rent has been recalculated; i should have spoken up before this, i would have avoided a lot of anger and misery.
