When I first ever started blogging, I had used Xanga. Anyone still uses that raise up your hands! But I think a year later I moved to Blogger. And during these times, I wrote about my life, and literally, my life. I wrote about what I did, conversations I had, emotions I felt, thoughts I had... You get the idea.

And years later, I'm here. Blogger has evolved A LOT since the first time I used it. But it has definitely become much better :) I look forward to its future developments. I started justablogurl as a place for me to actually blog properly, to discuss certain matters. But my 17-year-old mind seems to be limited to only the knowledge I have obtained in the 17 years of my life. I don't read the newspaper or watch the news on television so that could be a reason why I don't know so many things and can't find good topics to discuss about.

Being more of a literature-focused person and the lateral thinker that I am, I am most likely to write about random things (such as this topic now!), poetry, books, theatre, or movies :)

Mmm, I have no idea where this post is leading to actually. Haha
But then I guess it makes you think... What exactly is blogging? What does one actually write about? And why?

One word: BUSY.

It seems like life has never been harder.
I have so much work and responsibilities thrown at me that sometimes I don't think I can manage everything. I'm trying to balance friends, family, religion, studies, and sleep. (Yes I can live without food lol)
Everything is so tough right now. Essays after essays. Assignment after assignment. Project after project. And it all comes to the Predicted Grades. Oh my gawd.
I envy people who are already working. I envy people who are in college. I envy people who are retired and just living somewhere in the middle of a forest, waiting to die of old age.
And yet, I know that when I'm them, I'll miss the days when I'm studying. When everyday I come to school and see my friends. When everyday I smile and laugh with them, sharing jokes that no one else would understand. When everyday I meet that one person to will make my day. When everyday I don't have to worry about money, taxes, the economy, bankruptcy, how much money is in my bank or how much I can spend.
Is this what we are all left to? To worry about life in terms of it's materialistic-ness (I can't seem to remember the right word for it right now)? I pity the human race for being reduced to worry about the NOW only. It's rather sad. Money isn't everything. Trying to survive is not the only thing to worry about.

And I would love to continue about this but then it would end up with me talking about religion and all that... when I should be working on my Business IA at the moment. Another time then.
