I have a meeting with my potential thesis supervisor in two hours!! He does Mixtec epigraphy but it’s the closest I’ll get to Maya, so I’m gonna propose a cross-cultural comparison of their codices to at least I can sneak some Maya into it. 

Also, having spent the last week trying to get as familiar with Mixtec as I am with Maya, I have to say I think Mixtec is like 10x harder to translate. Maya writing is so beautiful and clean and organized and Mixtec writing is more like playing Wheres Waldo looking at picture with little glyphs hidden everywhere. 

This might be more difficult than I had anticipated.
