I felt, that night, on that stage, under that skull, incredibly close to everything in the universe, but also extremely alone. I wondered, for the first time in my life, if life was worth all the work it took to live. What exactly made it worth it?

And the bad week continues. One of my coworkers apparently told my boss I’m not doing my job.
I work with exactly two people. One girl has missed her shift twice because she couldn’t make it, but hardly anyone ever comes in then anyway and she’s cool, I like her. The other girl has missed a ton of shifts as well, and for most of those times I’ve been left in there alone/had to open the center late.
If I’m not going up to greet people first, it’s probably because you’ve been missing shifts and I’ve had to cover it for both of us. You know, just a thought.
One of the girls I work with already doesn’t like me. I don’t know what I did to her, but she just doesn’t like me. She doesn’t talk to me. Doesn’t smile. Nothing. It’s been like that since day one and I have no idea what the hell I did. I’m guessing she’s the one that talked to my boss, considering I work ¾ shifts with her. That, or it was the coworker that yelled at me last week, and that was a one time thing.
Could they have not just talked to me themselves? Or brought it to the student manager? Really??? You had to go straight to the boss so that he could give me a stern talking to?
I like where I work. I like helping the people that come in. Absolutely don’t like who I work with right now. Hopefully, I can avoid have shifts with them next semester.
Just like you, Maya, I'm a wait-and-see type of person. Speculation at this point just exhausts the mind. I will say however that I've never been this optimistic about a near future BG ending... Louis hasn't posted on IG in 1 month, hasn't been seen around the kid in forever, AND was stunt-free at Ultra, which I found surprising. I think it's the little good things that are the best indicators... I'm sure there's lots more I haven't covered, but I'm hopeful :)
And today he shows up in London…..Wait and see, as always, but I get what you mean! Hopefully (if one remembers what hope even is)!
