But, how did you as a young (or even later in life) find time in your hectic life to truly figure out your religion, to read and to actually do things such as your first casting?

That is a really good, practical question.  Juniper's suggestion of routine and use of a daily book was what worked for me too.  I'm not sure when I got Pennick's book but I also recommend it as a simple introduction across various path lines.

I think the suggestion of routine is important to the development of a meaningful spirituality.   If a practice is going to be important to you, you won't be successful at it by fitting it in when possible.   I learned at your age (long prior to my pantheistic beliefs) to set aside some time each day on a regular basis.  And later, when I had 3 children all going off to school (2 in  high school) I actually changed my routine and got up 30 minutes earlier to have my quiet time.    Yours might start at 5 minutes.  But finding a quiet space where no one and nothing intrudes in order to read or pray or meditate, works to develop a pattern of attention to your spirituality/path/religion/whatever.  Even if you don't have a path today, you can use the time to learn a little or just pay attention to it.  Your knowledge and eventual belief will grow and develop.  And as that pattern of regular, routine daily practice grows, it will support you through a lot of life's ups and downs. 

You will find your path as long as you keep looking. 

I don't need a god to make me safe
I am safe by knowing I am where I should be
a part of all that is
