it is one of a child's first words, the beginning of their search for knowledge. it is a mother's cry as a rebellious teenager has made a bad choice. it is the lament of a man losing his job, unable to support his family. it is the wonder of a husband and wife waking up next to each other for the first time. it is the reaction to the loss of a loved one. it is the reaction to the gain of the world. it is the soldier's question heading into war. it is the catalyst of a new scientific discovery. children have asked this question from the beginning. philosophers and theologians have still not found the final answer. it is the voice of humanity.

again, i havent blogged lately--but not because i haven't wanted to. simply becasue i haven't had the time.

these days i've barely had the time to do everything i'm supposed to be doing, much less anything else. which can get hard sometimes. if i could just have one or two days that i didn't have to do anything except catch up on my homework, earn some money, and maybe clean my room, i'd be fine. but i'm constantly just almost behind, not enough where it's a problem in getting stuff turned in at school or that sort of thing, but i'm just barely making it. if this translated to a business, i'd be making enough money for all my expenses--but absolutely nothing else. there's just always so much that seems to be more important than just breathing, and looking at life for a little while. i mean, when it's a choice between talking to my boyfriend and doing my history essay, or saying a prayer and passing a class, it's kinda obvious which one i HAVE to choose. and i don't like it when these choices are taken out of my hands.

i guess that's really all i have to say...or rather, all i really have TIME to say. oh well. i'm doing the best i can with what i've got to work with right now. that's all anyone can ask, isn't it?

we're smiling but we're close to tears,
even after all these years,
we just now got the feeling that we're meeting
for the first time.....
oh, these times are hard
yeah, they're making us crazy,
don't give up on me baby <3
