Today is the last day of the spring semester. The next two weeks will be full of meetings with the Blues and Indigos telling us all what a wonderful job we do, and here's why you need to work harder as we cut your budget, staff, and available OT hours.

The head electrician who was caught exposing himself is now back to work after all charges were dropped. He spent 4 months on full paid LOA while the investigation was ongoing. And how he got the charges dropped since the cops caught him red handed is beyond my pay grade.

The rebranding project cost $650,000. USD more than double the estimated cost.

The science center has more issues than Time Magazine.

17 of the 48 new Town House apartments (all unfilled) sprung water leaks over the winter which we didn't find out about until they started leaking so bad as to cause water damage to occupied apartments 2 floors below.

Monday is looking like it's going to be Red Monday, the current guess is a 20% reduction in faculty thru both retirements and "pursuing other opportunities."

My department isn't replacing the 5 people who retired or the 2 that got fired for at least a year.

Enrollment is down again

The Child Care Center (supposedly one of the best in the state) is close to going dark.

But work has started on the art building expansion. ($25,000,000 project) wonder how much that's going to go over.

We've created 2 new Indigo positions. And I'm direct quoting one of the guys when I say "I have no idea what I'm supposed to be doing here, but I like the paycheck."

My union President and Vice pres both stepped down from their offices leaving the 2nd vice pres in charge. my favorite quote from him. "If I knew I'd have to be president I wouldn't have ran for office."

11 months till my boss retires, but who's counting.

$7,000,000 USD projected budget shortfall next year.

And I think The Computer is out to get me.
