I Can't Believe How Fast Time Goes

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 416 People

    I graduated high school almost 3 years ago,

    looking on facebook and seeing people with kids/pregnant. It got me thinking, wow, one day we're all going to be 50 years old having grandkids(maybe) just thinking how time flew by so fast. Life is really short, so we have to make the best of it.

    I remember being 9 years old

    so clearly..thinking "this is the last time I will be a one digit number", and about how fast time goes by..I'll be 50 in no time. I always tried to picture myself at the age I'm at now, which is 23. It's amazing being here.

    Never Would Have Believed It

    I can remember being younger and thinking how slow time was.  Then one day out of no where I realized it wasn't slow.  The older I get the faster it goes by.
