Fuck You, Melville Dewey
I had my last class from hell today!!! What did I learn? That I do not want to be a cataloger. This class has pretty much consumed my life for the past 2 months, and now all I have to do is write a 3-page paper by the end of April...and await the grade from my final *gulp*. As of right now, I have an 89.3% in the class, so unless I royally fuck up the final and the paper, I'm good to go. Not too shabby, considering at one point I had a 60%. He took a picture of us that I'll post as soon as he posts it unless I look like ass, which I probably do. Who wouldn't look like ass after spending almost 14 hours discussing the finer points of Library of Congress Subject Headings, Sears subject headings, Dewey, DDC call numbers, Cutter numbers, and Library of Congress Classification. I'm 1/4 of the way finished and by Christmas I'll be halfway there! Woot!
And be warned: if you tell me the Dewey Decimal System isn't used anymore, I'm going to punch you in the face.
At least I get to look forward to Rusty and V.'s visit to York next week!
