Life seems to be flying past in a blur. I blink; Tuesday is here again, another blink; a weekend has been and gone. Another blink; another semester is almost over. In stark contrast, when I was a child, days seemed to never end. As a young woman in love I waited not-so-patiently as the moments dragged until the next date. Seconds now take on the previous proportions of minutes, days now feel like minutes and years more like weeks. It is an odd phemonenon that become more acute each year.
