It's time.

Time's a funny thing.

You think an event is ages away, you have all the time in the world to prepare, and suddenly, before you quite realize what's happening, it's here.

Exams, deadlines, or just your kid brother going away to the other side of the world for college. You think there's a month left, but the month flits by so quickly it seems like a second.

Then you think it's just four months till your birthday comes, or till it's time for that dream vacation you've got planned, or till he comes back for the holidays. But time doesn't work that way. No sirree. Take it from me, those four months will seem like four years. Because time's just a funny old thing.

We did Time Perception in our practicals in first year of college you know.

I do know... that was a nicer experiment than most. Ah well time for me is flying or crawling depending on which way I look at it.
