So, here I am in front of the computer. I'm nearly 20, wanting to venture into my religion more and more each day but not having the time to do so. I should, but I don't.

Why? I work like the rest of the (American) world, 45 hours a week. On top of that, I watch my close friends daughter quiet often as we live together. If I do have any time, my body is often going "DO NOTHING! REST!" at me, which I have to comply (Cheesy).

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?
using a day planner can help. mostly though I just seem to  find myself talking to the Lady while going about my routine for the day and its only coordinating things for my coven that is a pain- everyone else has to arrange their schedules to include group rites. it finally got so frustrating we disbanded  temporarily  and I went back to being a solitary. we still get together as a group but there is no regularly scheduled rites now.
the big issue for most people seems the ability to commit to doing it and then hold to that commitment. If your serious about your religion you just make the time and participate in private and group rites because you just couldn't not do it. a lot of covens fall by the wayside because of lack of participation and a lot of solitaries find it hard to keep up thier private rites because life gets busy. Spirit always has time for all time is Now, so stay in spirit and you will find tiome for what you want to do.
