"Porthos dreams of being a bear, and you want to shatter those dreams by saying he's just a dog? What a horrible candle-snuffing word. That's like saying, 'He can't climb that mountain, he's just a man', or 'That's not a diamond, it's just a rock.' Just." - J.M. Barrie
limits. that's what that word brings; limits, boundaries, a breaking point. i can't possibly understand, i'm just a kid. personally, i'm not too keen on that word. understandable, no? when i hear the word 'just' i feel as if it's trapping me. i feel as if i can do so much more. i feel as if it's not doing its subject justice. giving it the kind of fairness it deserves. actually, now that i think about it, it's pretty darn patronizing. maybe i'm looking at it the wrong way, but that word is just...inadequate. and yet, i find myself using that word again and again. i don't hate you, i just dislike you. like that's any better, guys.
