    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.

    I think the planet is turning faster.

    how could it be proven it disproved? mightn't the speed at which we travel have a progressive affect on mechanical actions and pressure, etc so mechanically operated clocks might pick up the pace. we consider a day to be one revolution of earth on its own axis and a year to be...

    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.

    everyday of your life will feel like it went by

    faster than the day before because people perceive time as what they have already lived compared to the current time they're in. so basically the longer you live faster time will go by

    So Very Fast...

    I've been e-mailing an old friend from high school (I did distance education and so did she, we met on camp), and the other day she said 'Oh, it's been 7 years since we've seen each other'. Seven years?? It only feels like two. I was 15 when we met, I'm now 22. It only feels...

    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.

    Time goes by fast, especially in high school.

    Three years ago I was a freshman and it feels like less than that but now I'm a senior and it went by too fast.
