Tip from a college instructor to college (and high school) students: no teacher or professor ever quite put it this way to me but I think it's really important to know that a good thesis statement for an essay is something that is falsifiable. That is, someone could argue with it and potentially prove you wrong. Statements like "Vladimir Lenin was a very important figure in history" or "the color blue is significant in this novel" or "the Beatles are one of the most influential rock bands of all time" are not falsifiable, no one could seriously argue with those. But see, with that last one (which is a real, paraphrased one I received from a student once. so is the color blue one) if you just drop the "one of" then it becomes a thesis statement you can actually use! It's not a particularly hot take, but it's something that someone could disagree with and counter, and so you'd have to prove in the paper. With the other two, being more specific -- important to what? significant in what way? -- would also make them falsifiable.
That kind of hedging, using phrases like "one of" or "mostly" or "very" etc., is great, even essential in lots of other contexts, including usually in the body of your paper.... but it doesn't work for a thesis statement. Write something where someone could plausibly say "no, that's wrong." You're making an argument. Argue!
Granted, you don't want to go too far in the other direction and get too Internet Hot Take-y, as you still have to actually prove your thesis statement in the essay. Though I will say that essays that go for broke in that way are at least interesting to read and I tend to be more generous in grading them even if they don't fully get there, than the vague bland glittering-generalities puff-piece crap that doesn't actually make any sort of argument. I know I am not unique in this preference, so do with that what you will.

With graduation around the corner I just wanted to say that it is okay if you won't be graduating this year because you dropped out, deferred a year, took a semester off, or any other reason.

Thesis Diary #20
Pretty small update on my thesis work today. I simply contined reading Uccider貌 Vittorio Emanuel II curated by Massimo Centini. This discontinued book is focused on the first trial that started the witch hunt which I am writing about in my thesis. The book is basically devided in a first small essay, which is what I have finished reading and annotating this morning, and then there should be a full transcription of the archival sources, which is a blessing for me, because it will save me a lot of time. So as I was mentioning today I finished the essay part, which was divided in different sections, some more specific on the trial, others more on the subject of witch hunts and magic from a sociological and anthropological point of view. It was really interesting and I cannot wait to have a full reading of the transcripted sources.
Aside from this I did read first thing in the morning, I jouranled, and I practiced Irish on duolingo. I also finished the second season of Derry Girls, and this show has become one of my favourites series. The other big thing about today was packing, because this evening I am popping on a plane, and taking a small trip of a couple of days with a friend. I am a bit nervous about it, it's mostly my anxiety that has gotten worse ever since the pandemic started. I have my meds with me and I am trying to approach this with the most positive spirit I can. I hope that I will manage to turn off my brain for a couple of days and relax, I really do hope that.

Ngl I think it's strange that a lot of people IRL are so kneejerkingly terrified of being weird or even associated with being weird. I say this as someone with relatively normal fashion/speech patterns, not even as a member of a particularly crazy subculture.
