Would you even trust her notes? I wouldn’t. She sounds like she has been cribbing off you so long and having YOU do HER work so long, she doesn’t even have the base foundation to build on to understand the current content. You didn’t do her any favors by doing her work for her. You need to have a blunt conversation where you say you want to focus on your own work and will be attending all classes (which you should do anyway), then you will be too busy to do ANY of her work for her. When she asks (and she will), so sorry I have my own assignments to finish and I think better alone. Do NOT let her sit with you and copy off you or spend your precious time doing her work. If she copies your work you could get a zero and accused of plagiarism.
Unfortunately you will probably find she pitches a fit or at least ends the “friendship” since you are being “mean” (aka not being a doormat) but at least you won’t be spending your precious energy on her anymore.
