Time seems to be going so fast compared to when I was a kid, I don't know whether it's because I wasn't really aware of it when I was a kid or what but it's really weird how fast time seems to be going by.

Does anyone else get this feeling?

Its supposed to feel like that. It means you're normal. Or that we used to be normal, and are now just piles of anxiety and fear wrapped in a thin layer of ambition which can only hold it together for so long...

Embrace the tragedy dude, its meant to be

How old are you, ts? I didn't start feeling that way until I got to college and then everything sped up, it's a bit ridiculous. I was wearing suits and making Blackberry calls at 20, and I freaked out that I was growing up too quickly. I shaved my head into a mohawk and dropped some clients so now I'm a bit less busy and have a little more time to be young before I graduate next winter.

That's because as you get older, any period of time is a smaller fraction of your overall life. When you're 40, a year is a 40th of your life, but if you were 8 it'd be an 1/8th. It doesn't seem like a lot between a kid and a teenager, but it happens.

You know how when you were younger, an hour seemed like forever to you? As people grow, their brain starts to perceive time differently. An hour feels like less time. Now extend that logic to a year, or a decade, or a century. The longer you've been here, the more time will feel as if it going quicker.

So soon enough a century will feel like a day.

I know what you mean, primary school seemed to of lasted an eternity, like it would never end. Now high school has been like "whooaaaaa" and here I am in tertiary education

Turning 18 in a few weeks, it just got me thinking that's all.

I remember how summer holidays and shit like that used to seem like an eternity, and now it just seems so short, sometime I wonder if time is actually speeding up literally

I have a theory... you know how ads on TV seem to be really long the first time you watch them? It's because you're processing the information and taking it all in, making sense of it, I presume. It might be the same thing in a sense when experiencing life, when you're a kid you aren't so experienced and when you're older some things come automatically. Therefore I say *brain melt*

Am I talking jibberish here? The answer is probably.

Sorta. Its weird... school years feel short, while school days feel like they go on forever. If you know what I mean.

Like lectures today felt like they weren't gonna end. But on the other hand my undergrad years are gonna go by in a flash.

Smoke a lot of weed. Time goes by uber slow. Problem solved.


Plus, at least for me, it gets me really interested and involved in my surroundings, bringing back that child-like sense of amazement and wonder at the things around me.


Just sayin'.

i feel old and im only 17, i wish i was a little kid again... life was easier back then.

Being a kid wasn't "easier". You were ignorant to the world around you.

Life would have been just as you see it now if you knew everything you know now.

Yes. A year feels like five minutes, and we have only got about 70 years. Life is way too short and it's quite deppresing. I'm ok with dying, I just wish we had more time, and I still hope there is some sort of afterlife.

I came into this thread thinking it was about the "missing time" phenomenon. I am disappoint.

But I do know what you mean. Every year that goes by feels shorter than the last one. Which sucks, because I'm going to graduate high school in June, and it's really overwhelming having that major life change coming closer and closer. I just wanna be a kid, man.

You become more aware of your surroundings, and start focusing more on specifics instead of a broader spectrum, and time goes by faster focusing on a smaller thing rather than a larger one.
