Maggie is still filling out forms for her new job. Her new manager called and gave her more papers to fill out online. She hasn’t started working yet. We got her a cell phone from Walmart. She needed an ID to get it to work. She doesn’t have a valid drivers permit any more so she used her passport number for her ID. Her senior class was going to go on a cruse so we got her a passport. In the end they didn’t go on the cruse. Maggie couldn’t get the phone to start working so she called the help line. We think that the phone is all set up but it may take up to two days to have it go completely through their system and start working. If it doesn’t start working tomorrow then she will call the help desk again.
While Maggie is waiting for her job to start she is working on building a city in Minecraft. She got a lot of pieces of loose leaf paper and taped them together and started to draw her city. There is no map or overview and she needs to keep track of where everything is. She was working on one piece of paper, but the city got too big. She has built the roads in the city but she hasn’t started the buildings yet. She has mapped on the large papers where she wants all of the buildings to go…the school, airport, parks etc. She showed her plan to her sister Beth and Beth didn’t like where the buildings were located. She didn’t like it that the school was by the airport. Maggie understands, but says that there is only so much room and some things will need to be in the wrong spot. Now Maggie has started a new map. She has the streets drawn in and is trying to figure out where to put the buildings. I said that no matter where you put the buildings, someone won’t like it. Put them where you want, or stay with your original plan. She doesn’t like to upset people so she will change her city to make others happy.
