I Can't Believe How Fast Time Goes

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 499 People

    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.

    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...

    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.

    Time Flies

    Time flies so fast and who knows where it goes? and yes, time does fly faster when you're happy. Almost 5 months back, I met a guy. and this guy sort of really put a change in my life. He came at a time when I thought, no one else could ever make me smile again. He came at a...

    Reflecting

    I woke up this morning, had my coffee of course and thought, oh my gosh, I can't believe how fast time has gone by and where I am in my life...It's not a bad thing. Just a realization of what's up. I must be having a great time (no pun intented) because it's going by fast. Does...

    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.
