As I am getting older and becoming more and more busy with school, work and many other commitments I have noticed a new phenomenon occurring in my life; time is passing me by at an accelerating rate. Of course, I know that time has not literally began to accelerate at a faster rate, but it sure seems like it. When I was in high school, I was so anxious to graduate and begin college. I felt that once in college, I would feel free and inspired. I was right, college was liberating and inspiring, but it is also much more demanding and compromising. If I could go back in time, I would tell myself to relax and enjoy the lack of responsibilities I had then. However, since I cannot go back in time I can only take my own advice seriously now and enjoy that, which is available to me now before things change after I get my degree and move onto other commitments and inspirations. All I can say now is, enjoy the time in life you are in now, you cannot go back and the future will surely come, sometimes at a faster pace than expected.
