    You could call it that unfortunately; sometimes I get so caught up with interests that I neglect what needs to be done. I never seem to want the "important things" as much as I want what interests me-it turned into taking things for granted, for me-and I think that my interests should be treated as secondary in comparison to what needs to be done, especially since I'm still a high-schooler. This will help more when I choose a career. My interests are severely important to me, but I've given them way too much stock for a long time.

    I look for balance because I'm a person of extremes. The idea of balance sounds like a healthy way of doing things.

    Makes sense. That's what I am doing even now and I'm well out of high-school. It seems like the older I get the more restless I become. I thought it would be the opposite.

    Accept the past. Live for the present. Look forward to the future.

    The Dutch have decided to prosecute free speech.

    They have decided to prosecute Geert Wilders for publishing, "Fitna".

    You can see, "Fitna", on Youtube.

    The strategy is terrorism against soft targets and propaganda in the West.

    Of course they divide the world into muslims, dhimmi and infidels.

    And we are dhimmi who have no right to free speech and in particular, no right to criticise islam.

    So it is essential, for their propaganda to be received without criticism, to ban or limit free speech.

    And so Geert Wilders, an elected Dutch Parliamentarian, is being prosecuted with the full weight of the Dutch State.

    God help him, and God help us.
