Time is weird Answered

Huh. I just realized that I have now lived in the house I'm in (and consequently, my two oldest children have lived here - the youngest has another year or so to go) longer than I lived in the house where I consider myself to have "grown up" (ages 8-19 or so.) As a side effect, this also means that I've lived here longer than I've EVER lived any place else. It doesn't really feel that way; I don't know whether time is compressed as your get older, or stretched when you're young (probably both.) Time perception is weird...

I have a very confused sense of time, though I had a homestead from 2 until last year which was my dad's house I've moved 13 times in total and I'm only 17 It makes it very confusing though I've lived in this new house almost a year now, we might move to a bigger house that's in a cheaper area though...

. I've been in my house for about 15 years and it feels pretty homey, but I guess the place I'll always think of as Home, is where I lived between the ages of 4 and 13. Come to think of it, I've lived here longer than anywhere else. I've got too much junk to even think about moving all of it. LOL
. And yes, the older I get, the faster time seems to go. tempus fugit!

ah, I have found a way around some of that "speeding up of time". I have tried to make most moments "count", that is, not dozing, not "biding my time", never feeling like "its Monday AGAN?", not wasting one 7th of my life dreading a day to "get through", but savoring everything I can. Things seem to move a little slower. The day lasts longer, I am not so rushed all the time. Or maybe it is just my warped perception of time causing this :-)
