What about stuff like when she wants to sit on my lap or beside me when I'm eating or when I'm folding clothes and then I look up to see that she's sitting quietly staring at me? 

I'm like "Oh hey, hows it going?..." looking around like "Ermm

If you don't want her to sit on your lap tell her no, there's a chair there for that reason. I say that to kids all the time.
If she's staring, give her something to do or strike up a convo. Ask her about her fav show or what she's learning in school or about her friends. Tell her a story from your childhood that she might like. Ask her random questions.

I don't understand why her presence makes you so uncomfortable though....

ask her questions about what she likes to do...what her abilities are(drawing, reading, etc)...kids are huge egomaniacs and love to talk about themselves. Sleepy  then they get nosey and want to keep asking all your business.  pesky kids.

Im a big kid at heart, so I would say it is relatively easy for me to speak to children. Just establish common ground. Ask her about Big Bird, or Spongebob. Ask her about her siblings or show her something cool. That will make her feel more comfortable being with you.
But if you still feel awkward talking to her, you can always gas her up if she tries to sit on your lap. That'll teach her a lesson.

For some reason, this made me think of my baby cousin, who was like a freakin parasite, always clinging onto your body. Like, I'd be sleepin wit my hoodie on, but when I'd wake up, use the bathroom, and look in  the mirror, there'd be two heads stickin out of my hoodieLOL. I thought it was so cute though.

you can also put her to work if all she does is sit there and stare. If she's not a smart asian, you can probably get away with having her clean your room for a nickelThumbs Up.

Cute!  Ms Wonderland gave some very good answers.    As for the sitting on the lap, it all depends if you and her family are all comfortable with it.  I am not sure how old you are, but little girls are often fascinated by girls in their teens and early 20s.  My daughter cannot get enough of my niece or her baby sitters(all between the ages of 17-21).

As her about the most fun part of her day?  Who did she play with? What games did she play? What she likes to eat  etc.  As Ms Wonderful said, they love to talk about themselves.  They like it when you sound impressed with their answers.

Since you are living there, you might want to set boundaries early on-where the child understands that there are some times that you might not want to play-because you are tired or have "homework". 

Good luck!  :-)

Depending on her age I would just let her help me do stuff like fold clothes, wash dishes. Watch cat videos together on Youtube or Dora videos. Ask her for her favorite tv shows and go to their homepage. Most often they have videos and games for kids on them you can do together. You can also just get a cheap coloring book and colored pencils and just color with her. Talk about the page you are coloring, ask simple questions like.. do you like cats? Oh, you do? What kind? I like big fluffy black cats with orange nose. I once had a cat as a kid and it would blah blah blah...

Annoying child? Talk to the parents.
