don't jump

I would like to caution you on jumping to conclusions. I love the idea of a ghost in Peabody, and I'm guessing you do too, since it is your semester-long project. But since you are going into this thinking that you are going to find evidence that the ghost exists and is active, you need to be very careful that you don't make premature conclusions. Always ask yourselves, "Does this really constitute evidence for the existence of the ghost, or do we think it does because we want it to?"
