How would you deal with a roommate who complained all the time?

A few days ago, I let a friend of mine move in with me and rent my extra bedroom while she's in town doing an internship for 8 months. But she's already stressing me out. I don't know how I can deal with this for 8 more months.

She complains about the AC not being cold enough, the fact that I don't have cable, she criticizes me for not going out enough, she claims that I don't cook enough, she says the part of town I live in seems "lonely" and that the apartment seems too empty.

This situation makes me not even want to go home because I'm a person who really hates criticism and my home has become an uncomfortable and stressful environment.

What should I do?
