This is one of those moments where I need to feel insanely proud of myself, and do, because not everyone can say they've written a 13,000 word thesis, or that they've got a relatively great mark for doing so. So whilst I may not have done some things that others have, or had some things that others have, I'm not completely useless. My time has not necessarily been wasted. I've written a 13,000 word thesis, incorporating an argument, an analysis of three texts and a description and evaluation of historical facts, all fully researched.
They call this kind of crap self-affirmation. I prefer to think of it as egoism. Potato Potahto.
