You are incredibly lucky! Know why? You are learning one of the most important lessons about...well frankly, LIFE! You have to communicate, maintain a dialog, keep people in the know, ask questions...and any other way of saying TALK! The other key is learning the timing of having the critical conversations. Take the temperature of the room so you know when the right time to talk about work loads, expectations etc. rolls around.
Do I think the new person isn't assigned as much to do because they are new. Yes! Do I think that you need to have a conversation with you your boss. Based on the little bit of information I have, Yes to that to!
Your boss isn't the only person you can talk to about the work and the timing. Talk to your peers as well. Maybe there is a reason that you are getting things done before they are. Is it possible there are additional steps you could be taking to do the job even better than you are now?
Go be awesome!
