Where did the time go?

Oh! Do not attack me with your watch. A watch is always too fast or too slow. I cannot be dictated by a watch. - Jane Austen, Mansfield Park

Since becoming an adult, I've noticed time moves a lot faster than I want it too. Everything is racing, moving at the speed of light. Even technology insists on improving so quickly that by the time I've gotten a new device, some advancement has led to an upgrade - it's already been replaced.

The summer is half over, and I feel like I've missed so much of it. I can't keep up.

And at the same time, I'm glad of the times when it's perfectly okay to be leisurely, to take a stroll and enjoy myself and my own personal speed.

How I wish to have the time perception of a child. When I was a child, everything went too slow, and now that I'm grown, it's far too fast. It seems that the speed you can appreciate never happens when you want it to happen.

I agree, I am in University and I cannot believe I'm back to school in just over a month!! Where does the time go?

It's sad to think that the summer will come to an end soon. Good luck at school this year Steph! Thanks for visiting!

Oh so well said! I too feel this way about the time and especailly the summer. Here's to lazy summer days and slow steamy summer nights.
