Today, I got my graded essay from my teacher. Earlier, he'd said that it was "too specific", and that I should change it to be "more general and debatable". Now that I've got it back, the first comments on the paper are, "Your thesis is too general, be more specific." FML

Thesis' are incredibly difficult to master.. While your teacher didn't give you great guidance, he did show you the general gist of what you should avoid when writing one - i.e. - being too specific or not specific enough... A thesis balances in between both. Don't discourage yourself though! With practice, I'm sure you'll turn into a pro

There could have been the possibility of making it too general? Ask around for people you trust to check your work next time. Either way, it sucks :/ fyl op.
