|The battle's done, but we can't have won, so we sound our victory cheer

I think I have an answer to my dilemma about postgraduate work answered for me. I looked in my results, and saw that I didn't get anywhere near a stellar result in my project. I passed, but that's as much as can be said. It explains my supervisor's reluctance to talk about the like when I got my overall results. His stance was that a 2.1 was 2.1, so he wouldn't discourage me. What I didn't hear him say was any matter of encouragement. Now that the breakdowns are available, I can see my project mark, and I see why.
On the side of rationalisation, I knew it wasn't good when I did it, but at the same time, my supervisor did suggest that he'd like to publish the ideas. Right now, I don't want to talk to him, though. I just don't. Still, clarity is a big project, so I might be able to knock heads with one of the Principle Investigators (the one who wanted me on there in the first place), and I'll see where I could go without getting too involved in agents.
Overall, it's a bit of a downer from the weekend I had.
