I thought I would stop and take a moment to share...I HATE working on my thesis. I don't dislike it. It doesn't stink. It's the greatest obstacle in my life to date. I know I'm being a huge whiner, but I'm pretty okay with that. The more I work on stuff, the more I realize that there is no way to actually draw a solid conclusion. Everybody interprets my passages based on their commitments to fill-in-the-blank interpretation. I'm doing the same thing. There's no way to get around it with the stuff I'm working on. I know that if it was clear-cut, there wouldn't be discussion on it anymore, but it's not that if you study it hard, it leads to a particular conclusion...or even that one conclusion is slightly more likely than another. But I guess I should take the advice Erika gives to her Kindergarteners...
You get what you get, and you don't throw a fit.
