An important part of working well is not working at all. It can be hard to separate yourself from your fulfilling professional duties, but occasionally (very, VERY occasionally) a few days off can be good for you. Taking time to mix with the rest of the human capital at MarsCorp in a relaxed and fun environment should make you more productive when you swiftly return to your job. Please enjoy your Annual Leave.
After a few months on MarsCorp, Part 4 sees Hob more relaxed with the Martians and even starting to enjoy getting stuck into the nitty gritty of work at the base, especially as it provides a welcome distraction from some painful memories of Earth. So MYIP (the Martian Youth Intern Programme) – which sees all work cease on the base – is a massive pain the arse for her. This inconvenience is made worse when Hob finds out she actually has to participate in MYIP in order to advance the terraforming mission, and in doing so she has her first proper dealing with the Resources department, and starts to understand just what they’re all about.
