Now here’s an interesting question: where the hell has 2015 gone?
Is it just me who feels like last Christmas was literally a few weeks ago and gets a massive shock when they realise the next one is quite literally staring them in the face? Where did all that time go? Where did January go? And February? And all those other months? How is it now December?
The oddest thing is that so much has happened this year, that it should really feel like a lifetime since last year, but it doesn’t. So much has changed, yet it still seems to have gone so fast. Not only did I meet my lovely boyfriend this year, but 2015 was also the year I flew the nest and moved out of my parents’ house. Whilst it’s starting to feel like I’ve been living in this flat with my sister and my friend forever, at the same time moving in seems like it was five minutes ago, not eight months back (although the fond memory of actually having money to spend seems like a very distant memory!).
Personally, I find my perception of time as I’ve got older has totally changed. Does anyone else ever feel like that? Time seemed to be so long and drawn out as a kid, especially at this time of year where you’re essentially waiting for Christmas. But now when there’s so much to do, the time whizzes by, and before you know it you’re looking back and thinking where did it all go? It feels like time has just slipped through your fingers like little grains of sand.
Graduating from university doesn’t even feel that long ago, yet its been well over a year now, which is a thought I always find sobering. I don’t feel I’ve actually embarked on my graduate career yet (which I talked about here), but I should have done. I’m now working on it, believe me, but I’d love to know where all that time went, and what I squandered it on when I could have been working towards my future.
So this has been an incredibly rambley post, but I’m basically asking if anyone else feels the same. Is it just me, or has this year flown by?
