Time seems to be speeding up as I get a little older, for example, the past two years feel like they've flashed past in a mere moment. Something about looking back at my profile on here seems to hammer home that fact, since I look at messages on my profile page that seem recent but in actual fact are years old now.

Does anyone else seem to be getting this feeling? Or is it just me?

I completely understand what you mean. Not only on here but everywhere. I've looked back at jobs and people I've worked with and what felt like it wasn't that long ago has in fact been years.

I guess that as you get older, you get busier with stuff... That tricks the brain and keeps it busy. Whether it's boring stuff or something you enjoy.

And as A. Einstein said: “Put your hand on a hot stove for a minute, and it seems like an hour. Sit with a pretty girl for an hour, and it seems like a minute. THAT'S relativity.”.

I completely agree with you. The past two years have flown by and it's actually quite scary. It only seems like yesterday I was holding my baby girl in my arms for the first time and this year she turns two. Where have those two years gone to?

If you have less time to ponder the non-critical aspects of your life, time seems to go by rather quickly. I know what you mean. Starting to pay my own utilities bills and having a steady job has made time pass fast for me personally.

I believe I can sympathise here. I'm 24 now (25 in March) and looking back, I wonder where the last five - ten years have gone. I've been at my current place of employment for nearly five years now; one thing that I sure as hell didn't want to do (bare in mind, it was initially a three-month temporary contract).

Before that, I spent three years at college (wasted those three years too), then obviously school. But yeah, there are occasions I can look back on and think to myself that wasn't that long ago, then it suddenly dawns on me that it was actually that long ago. It's a worrying concept to think time is passing us by at such a rapid rate, that we'll get to a point in our lives (some may have already) only to be wondering where it's all gone...

This is a common phenomena experienced by the aging. I figure we'll have to ask forumites over the age of 30 for their experiences on the matter. I know there's a few around.

I'm 19, 20 in May, but I'm feeling it too. It seems like only yesterday my biggest concern was getting through high school, so I could finally "get a move on" with my life. What a crock. Looking back I wish I had slowed it down and really enjoyed the past ten years. Being carefree isn't something I have the luxury of being anymore, not at this age; and it'll only get worse with time.

I'm overweight, I'm damn-near broke, and I'm alone. I wish I'd realized how much high school could have done for me and I wish I'd taken it more seriously. I wish I hadn't been so lazy about exercise and diet.

Oh well. You can what if yourself to death, I suppose.

Sweetie, that was yesterday. ;)

Very few of us are legitimately old enough to start being crotchety. That means you, Trekkums. You are insanely GF-old though.
