The word “might” should never appear in your thesis. Be direct and clear about the point you want to make, and don’t hedge or soften your statement. If you don’t feel strongly enough about your argument to put it in a declarative sentence, you should choose another paper topic. Aim for strong language that makes your support for your thesis entirely clear. Whether you’re establishing cause and effect, advocating for a solution, or interpreting something, you need to be your argument’s number one fan, and that relies on you using clear and definitive language.
One thing that made this particular Pingdom test so long, which was seconds, was that you had a “Connection error, no response from the server”. I ran the test a second time and with the same results… you have a Connection Error with the Server. I would run the test again and hope for different results, that it was just an isolated issue. If you continue having this connection error then you will need to call your Web Hosting provider and speak with them. They may not be able to tell you anything because they will probably say that it’s your site causing the issue, so it might be time for a new Hosting Provider if they do.
