As I get older it seems that time goes by quicker. Thinking back to when I was a child the summer seemed to last forever. Now it seems it is over before it even starts.

Someone explained this phenomenon that say when you are 6 years old a year is one sixth of your life. But when you are 45 it equals 1/45th of your life. So compared to the amount of time you have lived time gets smaller with each second.

This theory makes sense to me. What are your feelings on this?

LOL! It does make sense but I don't like it

Maybe it's not that time gets smaller but that we get bigger? Just messin w/ya
Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, expecting different results.

The theory definitely makes sense to me, but I've also felt that the happier I am, the more willing I am to try to slow time...not actually "slow time", but willing to take a few moments and really be where I am when I am how I am. I'm better able to take stock of why I am content, and able to appreciate it.

I feel like humans have a lot more conscious power over the passage of time than what they typically do with it.I feel like when people are more willing to focus on moments, minutes become less relevant and time becomes directly proportionate to what level of attention you give it.

And that's my stoner rant for the day

I feel like it's the busier you are (as an adult), time goes faster.

I miss long lazy summers

I think part of the reason summer seemed to last longer was because as a kid, you literally had nothing to do all summer. Now remember, this was before a kid's whole summer was filled with sports camp, music camp, cheer camp, foreign language school, etc. When I was a kid, we didn't do a darn thing over the summer except stay up late, swim a lot, and sleep in late.

Now, as adults, the majority of us don't have the luxury of taking the entire summer off to do nothing and as a result, there isn't anything special about summer anymore.
