Dewey Decimal System

I don't know about any of you but I struggled with the Dewey Decimal System in elementary school.  One of my aunts was the school librarian and I was also scared of her because she made me find books the hard way.  I'm sorry but as a little kid finding a book by PS 3525.G930G6 is not the easiest way to find a book. And I'm not gonna lie as an adult it's not that much easier (there's also no one to help me if I get lost!)

But I have to brag about myself for just a minute.  I have now found TWO books in the USU Library using the DDS. That's right TWO. Don't worry there are only 5 levels filled with books.

I thought my aunt was crazy for making me learn how to search for a book that way. I just knew I would never ever in my entire life use the DDS to search for anything. Guess I was wrong. 

Hmmm I guess school wasn't as worthless as I thought!

Occupy The Spectrum

Hooverville, shantytown, Stewtopia, and tent city are just a few of the names people are calling it. Our tent is the small yellow and blue one at the far right against the green fence!
