Where does time go?


I'm in my final week of Easter break before I head back down to Chichester and finish this year off - Three performances and an essay to hand in! In all honesty, I currently don't want to leave home and go back to uni (a total contrast to what I was like this time last year when I couldn't wait to leave). I've kind of got used to being home. It's probably because the end of the year is so close and I mean so close. In just over a months time, my first year of uni will be over. That's so scary to think. I'll be back home in absolutely no time at all! I think it's true what people say about time going faster and faster as you grow older - and I'm not even that old!! Only 19, but it does seem as though it's beginning to speed up a little. 

This academic year has gone incredibly quickly, quicker than any other year whilst I was at school. The school years just seemed to drag by at the time but now looking back, they actually did whizz past quite quickly. Now my university life seems to also be flying past right before me. As does the rest of my life now looking back on it.

Is it bad that a part of me can't wait for it to be over and to have my own house and family? But I know that when that time comes I'll be wishing I was still in uni!! It's not like I'm not enjoying it - because I am thoroughly enjoying it, but I think that's just how I work. When I was in college, I couldn't wait to go to university, now I'm at university, I can't wait to leave. But then that's just wishing my life away and if I do that, it will be gone way before I know it. 

Why, at the time, does time seem to be passing slowly and then within the blink of an eye it's 10 years later? I occasionally get confused about whether I dreamt about something or whether it actually happened.

There are some moments that I wish I could pause and replay them so I can do things differently. Or even extend moment so I can have more time doing whatever it is I'm doing and wish I could keep doing forever. But that's not how life works is it? Funny old thing! I've been thinking about it a bit too much recently, wishing I could go and change certain things. But I can't do anything about it now! 

I hope this wasn't too boring as I went on a little bit of a ramble really.
