Finished With My Thesis!

Hey everyone! I've now finished writing my thesis early after seven months work! It's still over a month until the final deadline, but I feel completely done with everything I set out to do. Check it out—here's the screenshot from my title page, with an epigraph and everything:


I would have included the whole thing, but the document is way too large to include in a blogpost—150 pages! My writing covers a complete, holistic chronology of Tlingit history all the way from 1775 to 1896, and has in depth analysis of the years from 1856-1896 addressing every point of argument I could think of. I'm really proud of what I've written, and at this point all I have left to do is print out the document and turn it in...

(It's for "Month Before Everything Hatches" Fools' Day, or, you know, April.)

In reality, I have a long way to go before I finish my thesis. It's really about 80 pages of text, I probably have 15-20 significant holes in my chronology and analysis to fill in, and I have a lot of revision to do. I probably didn't trick you anyway, but it felt a little cathartic to fool myself for a second.
