The OI girl doesn’t like her job. The company she works for is the same company she worked for on the Other Island, and they created a position for her when she moved because she was such a valuable employee. However, the people here at her new job don’t know that. They have her doing bullshit work and she is unchallenged and bored. At her old job, when the manager was gone, everyone came to her because she could deal with any situation and was naturally and automatically in charge. Even her old boss would (on rare occasions) come to her lost and ask “what should we do?” The OI Girl and her old boss are now the best of friends. Here, the OI Girl doesn’t have a lot of friends. Most of her friends are on the Other Island. When I am crabby or nasty it affects her more than I know. It’s a real challenge for me to not be mean and take out my other problems on her. She always tries to make me happy and she almost always does a good job.
The people she works with now don’t know what they have.
The other day, she said she was thinking about auditioning for a role in a play. She went last night and invited me to go with her. I declined. I want her to make some friends without me there and I also know some of the people involved so I figured she’d be OK. She came home very excited. she got a good part. She’s only in a few scenes but she has a lot of lines. The Play is called “The Judth Code” and her role is Rosie King, an evil journalist.
I’m thinking about showing her my blog, but I’m still leaning more towards not. I’ve never showed it to anyone.
