i always go through a roller coaster in my life where sometimes it feels like the days are dragging by and each day takes a week. other times it feels like each day is only a couple of hours long and before i know it, another week has passed.

at the moment i am so busy i find it hard to believe how quickly the days are flying by. its like there is not enough time to get everything done. its a good thing that im so busy but at the same time i wanna break :)

you?

It's hard to say... it's slow and fast.

Right now, it feels slow... I have a lot to look forward to (spring break, panic's new album..) and it's taking looong. Graduation seems so far away... is it June yet?

But then I look back, and it's like damn... only 70 days left?!?! Wow.....


And then my day in general is slow and fast. While I'm at school it's slow... then I come home, pop open the Macbook and it's suddenly midnight and I've done no homework :D Senioritis is a bitch.

Life seems to go by faster and faster, there just doesn' seem to be enough hour's in the day,i remember back in the day (blows dust off memories :p ) when i was a kid, we had the 6 weeks summer holidays from school, it lasted forever, but nowadays, that kinda period of time fly's by, especially when sat at my Mac. Occasionally on a sunday when i'm spending family time taking the kids out or we take a walk in the park then that day seems long but generally whoosh time goes past way too fast :( i guess it's our modern lifestyles compared to how it used to be............

right now things are in a weird funk for me. some days fly others drag. and there is no seemingly rhyme or reason for it either. i just go with it. today has dragged while yesterday was an eyeblink.

Since it's Winter and all, time has been dragging by really slow for me. Winter is a pretty depressing time, IMO. We have had A LOT of really dreary and snowy/rainy days this year and it sucks. The weather severely affects my mood and when it's all crappy like it has been, the time drags by.

In general, though, time seems to be FLYING by. I can't believe I'm 24. It's really weird. My Senior year of High School doesn't seem like it's been almost 6 years ago.

Time is a funny thing. :confused:

It's my senior year in high school, and it's CRAZY how fast these past four years have gone by. When I was younger I always thought I'd never see it to be a senior in high school for some reason. In fact, just a few days ago, I was on YouTube just watching some old music videos from the early '00s. It was quite depressing, actually. It seems like yesterday I was singing "I'm blue da ba dee daba diee", and now I'm getting ready to go to college. :o

I would say that this week is moving pretty normal. I just hope these next three days fly by so I can get some two weeks of spring break goodness.

I'd say that special relativity makes this poll pointless, since time and space are perceived differently by observers in different states of motion. ;)

No, becuase he asked about relative opinions.

For me it's pretty static. I've always thought time goes by too quickly.

No, becuase he asked about relative opinions.

But if everyone's opinion is bound to be different because everyone perceives time differently, what's the point of asking? :)

Sesshi
Mar 12, 2008, 06:41 AM
If there is no point in asking, then there is no point in this forum existing since it is based around the discussion of subjective relativity. (or is that relative subjectivity? :confused:)

It's currently moving slow for me. This spring forward stuff really messes with my internal clock.

It gets faster as I get older.

^^^Agreed.

The only people who would pick the 1st option are young people. I'm 27, and I really notice how quickly things change. I've lived outside my country now for 4 years, and it feels like 2 years.

Unfortunately, the days go by fast for me... And I think they go faster and faster year by year... Maybe as you getting older you become more busy. And while you are getting more busy time moves faster...
I think we should work for being more happy every day and make our lives more interesting and joyful. It will cover the speed of the days going by.. ;)

Time sometimes flies and sometimes moves second to second.

Now second to second

It seems like ever since I got married, time has flown by. I don't know where the last 4 years of my life have gone.

Right now, time is going by slow because I am looking forward to WWDC. But after that, time will start flying by again.

Right now it's extremely slow.

Pretty much normal here. But that's probably because nothings really going on right now. I'm waiting on a few potential business things to kick up, but until then I'm just sitting back and enjoying the ride.

I honestly think time is flying, my high school graduation is in a few hours.

You can also adjust it in real time. Thinking about the waiting for the new iPhones? Then time will slow down. Have a full weekend to play WOW? Then time speeds up.

They go by pretty fast for me. I can't believe it is already June.

I remember as a kid, my grandmother telling me the older I get the quicker time appears to pass by.

In grade school the day would last forever. Now that I'm in my 40s the day just flies by. I don't get the logic behind that but I think there's some truth, the older I get the faster time goes.

Seeing as I'm sitting here, and not moving near the speed of light, time is moving normally for me.

Too slow right now.. my summer has been a blast but I still hate being at home. I just want August 30th to come so I can move back to school.

The last month and a half of school after spring break went by so fast... (maybe cause i was drunk like 60% of the time LOL)

Yep- same for me. Time passes very quickly now.

very fast. hopefully they'll slow down at some point in my life though

Jun 4, 2009, 02:37 PM
... and since I'm not traveling anywhere close to light speed, I'd have to say normal.
:p

EDIT: Damn!, gotta remember to check if no one else has already had the "great" idea of joking at Einstein's expenses....

Since going to college it is going very fast, next week is the end of my course, I can't believe it is over already. God knows it will be slow when I start work ;)

time is moving so slow for me... i am hoping that these years would fly by... so i can get to creating that game studios i've always wanted to create.. but noo. i have to learn about how history works... it is just about 8 days from summer vacation and time is moving extremely slow.

Since graduating HS, everything has been in super fast forward.

Graduated HS -> Turned 18 -> Earned B.S -> Turned 21 -> Earned M.S

All in what has felt like a blink of an eye...HS prom still feels like yesterday.

Next thing I know, my little cousins are graduating high school, babies I've known since birth are now in middle school and I'm only a few years from an age I thought was old when I was a teenager...30.

Blah.

I don't think it has ever moved faster for me than now. It is very hard to believe that 19 months ago I hit the big road.

A year ago tomorrow that I was fired (http://forums.macrumors.com/showpost.php?p=5537236&postcount=90), 17th Marks the day I was re-hired. It seems like just a few months. Two more of these super fast years and this truck is mine :)

Pretty much my sentiments exactly... But its only 5 more days

If this makes sense:

-My days are hell, I feel like they never end.
-The year fly's by, I can't believe that I just finished my junior year of high school.
-The months are normal, not too fast or slow

i dunno but everything has been faster lately. it nis screwing up my school work, thinking due dates are days away. i also forgot to send in my work application because i thought it was due weeks ahead and then i realized i only have 12 days before i graduate (middle school) left...

I remember summer breaks were like for ever when I was a grade schooler... Why do I feel time passes by faster as I get older?

MacVixen
Jun 4, 2009, 08:27 PM
Absolutely flies by for me.
I work full time, have a husband, 2 kids aged 3 1/2 & 17 months - there are NOT enough hours in the day for me.

Time only moved slow for me when I was an unemployed full time student - and that's been more years than I care to admit :o

Time goes by too fast for comfort; yesterday, I was 7 and got my first pocketknife. Seems to go faster the older I'm getting - and hate to think what it'll be like when I'm 40.

The sad thing is that time goes by so fast for me, and yet the memories fade so quickly.

Yeah. It's really sad. I remember being a kid and playing outdoors all the time. You step out of the house on a sunny afternoon, and just play outside, and the day is long, and fun. You come in, have a glass of lemonade, play with legos inside or something, and then just chill until dinner is ready.. .ahh okay enough. I'm making myself too nostalgic.

Oh it is too fast for me! i get up at 6 and by the time i have made my toast and cup of tea it's nearly 6:15am. At work i get there at 8, then all of a sudden it's lunch time then home time.

It really depends, but mostly I notice that time flies fast for me. Typically, boring school days/boring days in general run slow, but when the week is over, I am amazed by how fast it went.
