YOUR FUTURE

I’m sorry but I have to rant here: It pisses me off to see people not want to better their lives, whether that be socially, economically, spiritually, etc.  WE ARE CREATURES OF EVOLUTION AND PROGRESS!  When we are unhappy it is because a part of our being is not satisfied and KNOWS that this can be FIXED and CORRECTED!  Humans of this planet do yourselves a favor: SORT YOUR S&^% OUT, Find what makes you happy, AND STRIVE…I REPEAT STRIVE……TO ACHIEVE THAT HAPPINESS!!!!!

Since moving back to Indianapolis I have dealt with the death of two family member, the loss of my child hood home twice (TWICE), numerous amount of insults, and work and school (BOTH FULL TIME).  Yeah I may seem cynical or angry, but the bottom line is this:  I’m fighting in what I believe in and I’m striving to achieve that. (I’m not saying this as a guilt trip, I’m just making points for reference).

If you at any point feel like you don’t know what to do next do this.  Take a step back and remember what your life was six years ago, then imagine what you life is like six years from now (both good and bad).  Now come up with a plan to go down the path that makes you happy.

This has been a public service announcement. (I should really start charging for these).

Can’t Sleep

So I’ve been up all night with a severe case of insomnia and I stumbled across this story: Lesbian Couple Saves 40.  Just thought I’d share it, can’t really think right now, insomnia and all.  But this story is the genuine article, and I’m impressed with this couples courage!

A SHOCKER THAT WILL NOT GO UN-NOTICED!

Dear Readers,

Last night I was informed that three members of The IUPUI School of Journalism (SOJ) were no longer going to be employed.  For various reasons the positions are gone, they quit, or whatever.  Bottom line is that as a student I’ve gotten to know and respect these three individuals, and as this is my last semester it wouldn’t feel right to walk the halls without these individuals being there!

This is just one of many issues that The SOJ at IUPUI is having and as a student not knowing the full details of the situations surrounding this and many other issues is just isn’t right!

If you are a current student at The SOJ or at IUPUI, an alumni, or someone who knows these three individuals and/or knows of issues around The SOJ please write a letter stating your dis-concerns and urge the dean and everyone else to stop making these changes, and allow these three a chance to come back! Write a letter and send it to The SOJ at 535 W. Michigan St.
Indianapolis, IN 46202.

My personal belief is this: Terminating, ending a position, firing isn’t necessary (unless the person in that position truly sucks at their job).  For an educational institution to cause three very influential members to be gone before or during the new semester of this year is border line madness!

I’ve just received an update from one of the individuals whom we will can Madame X.  Madame X informed me that her position was terminated and that her last day is August 29th, that’s at the end of the FIRST SEMESTER OF SCHOOL!  To make matters worse, she was not informed as to why her position was terminated.  How is it that Dean Drew is going to let someone go during the first semester of school and not explain in detail why that person is let go?

Change, Dean Drew, is a process that takes place over time not in the blink of an eye!  Also change should be expressed to all parties.  Why wasn’t the full expressed process of change explained to Madame X?

Readers again I urge you to write a letter to The SOJ at535 W. Michigan St. Indianapolis, IN 46202.  Express your unhappiness about the level of severe change, and urge Dean Drew to allow those who are being removed or have left to come back home!

Thank you.

Sincerely,

Rob Branch, student at The SOJ

P.s.  I’ve just been updated about some of the situations.  I will let you read his blog at: bobdittmer.wordpress.com  Right now there is a major uproar going around from alumni and students alike.  I hope that what happens right here, right now paves a way for our industry to once again see that when one is affected all are affected.  Thank you Bob, Deb, Suzy, and Maggie!  Thank all of you!

Under Construction

I would like to post a note about this site.  While I maintain a full work load of 40 hours a week as a pharmacy technician at Wishard Health Services and a full educational workload at IUPUI School of Journalism, I would like to note that I am not able to maintain this website at the current time, but since I have the availability of this site and once things become more calm, I will endeavor to make my presence known in the virtual world.

 

Thank you,

Robert Branch, BranchPR

Lack of Sleep

It’s 2:45 in the morning and I have to be at work at 9:00 a.m.  Trying to tidy things up and get this shindig started.  Just thought I’d relay a message to everyone.  I’m back, and I’m here to stay.
