Time | Janu-Blog Day 16

Time. It constantly ticks. We don't know how long we have left so we should embrace every second, right?

That would be much easier if time didn't move so quickly.

I try to enjoy life as much as I can but the older I grow, the quicker time flies. Every time I blink, time speeds up. More than ever, realisations hit me of "oh, I'm so old". I found out today that a little boy I used to play games with when I was around 12 is now turning 14. 14. I swear he was still barely starting primary school when I moved houses five years ago, and now he's studying for his exams.

I'm 20, so this may seem ridiculous. People older than myself say "the 20s are the prime of your life", or "you're so young!", or "don't worry about getting old". It's hard to agree with them when time is whizzing by; I could swear that yesterday I started university.

And now, I'm halfway through my degree.

Two and a half years have now passed since my first day as a uni student (and met Rachel for the first time, bonjour amie!). My second semester of third year begins on Monday and now, with every class and every day that passes, I will be further and further away from the beginning of the timeline of "my degree" and I will edge closer to the end. Before long, I will be a graduate and have to work a "real" job.

I fear that I'll finish this post, fall asleep and suddenly wake up in my 50s. 

Time is going quickly and nothing will stop it; it's a fairground ride that's spinning round and round, getting faster and faster and all I can do is hold on for dear life and enjoy it while it lasts.

I'm blogging every day in January! Check back at 6pm GMT every day for a new Janu-Blog post!
