I Think Life Is Too Short to Waste Time

    Fading Away...

    After you’re gone, people will forget your name, no matter how important it was, and your face, no matter how pretty it was, and what you said, no matter how clever any of it sounded. The things you’ve done will crumble and fade and the places you once loved, will change and...

    Too True Too. :)

    Time moves quickly and waits for no one. If you don't stop and look around once in awhile, you might miss it.

    Way Too Short

    The (global) average life span for a human is (roughly) 67.2 years (taken from a study this year). That is roughly 24,528 days. When you can take away 8,395 of those days because I am 23, to me that seems like a very short amount when you put in in context of time and how long...

    Time Is Of The Essence!

    I really do believe life is too short to waste time, that's why I'm here, on EP, procrastinating! I mean I could be putting up that shelf in the bathroom instead of typing this, in fact I should be doing exactly that but I'm tired, I'd only mess it up, so I'm putting aside my...

    Sometimes It Just Hits Me!

     That it's extremely likely that I am probably more than halfway done. Done!! I have no fear of death whatsoever. But I do fear that when I get "home" I'll not have done the things that are genuinely important!! OR worse yet..I'll have to come back!!
