continuation from my last post

randomly, i had a conversation with a friend yesterday very much along the lines of what i posted monday. one comment she made was this:

"the people that are strong are put in positions where they must be strong whether they want to or not"

i couldn't have said it better myself. BUT, is it by chance or by choice that these 'strong' individuals find themselves in situations where they are required to be strong? is this 'happenstance' a result of being strong? just some things to ponder.

on the road to submission front, i am continuing to work on my dissertation and finalize it. i have looked at the damn thing for the past 3 days, and i am ready to wash my hands of it for a few weeks. 40,000 words and 180 pages will be submitted THIS friday. can't wait.
