I AM SUPER TACO 8D

Hello all. This isn't a Christmas blog because my Christmases are never interesting enough to blog about. It is, rather, me listing my frustrations with obnoxious Japanese fangirls(boys)/self-proclaimed "otakus." There are thousands of them all over the internet, and generally whenever I come across one I usually ignore them.
Now, I know that I have my fair share of obnoxious fangirl moments, but I mean the types of fangirls who seem to think that they know everything about Japanese culture just because they watch Ouran and are taking Japanese 101 through a mediocre college program and get insulted/flame you every time you say anything that remotely sounds insulting about Japan in any way.
Okay, so here's my problem. My roommate and I have been good friends for about two years now. I met her my freshman year when I was walking down the hall in my dorm, her door was open, and I stopped because she was playing Kingdom Hearts. We became good friends and ultimately roommates. But then she started taking Japanese class and then she became awful to be around. She became that "UBER OTAKU!" that I described above. She started hanging out with Japanese exchange students and comes back late at night and wakes me up and then gushes about how "the Japanese girls thought that because I said 'Sou desu ne!' I was SO KAWAII because they thought it was SO KAWAII that I know Japanese!" (Exact quote. Not kidding.) This happens all the time. ALL THE TIME. NEVER MIND THAT "SOU DESU NE" IS LIKE THE MOST BASIC PHRASE THAT EVERYONE LEARNS ON THEIR FIRST DAY OF JAPANESE 101.
I don't mean to sound like I'm pissed that she is hanging out with Japanese kids. I honestly don't care. She's entitled to have other friends than me (and right now, I'm GLAD she does because it means she's in the room less). I just don't want to hear her talking about how "SUGOI" all of her friends are because they're Japanese and complain about how she doesn't have enough time to finish her schoolwork because she's too busy watching Sailor Moon with her new besties. Also I'm frustrated that she was accepted to go to Japan not because I want to go (I certainly do not) but because I feel like she's being rewarded for her C average, 12-credit hour, 8 hours of work a week while I'm struggling to get an internship when I bust my butt for a 3.9 GPA while working 20 hours a week with 15 credit hours.
Now I just don't know how to deal with her. I want to slap her every time she starts using fangirl Japanese and tell her to get a reality check.
I feel like this blog sounded like I was whining. I guess I was. But I needed to say it because I just don't have the heart to tell her. And what little bit I do tell her, she ignores.
On a different note, it snowed today.
