Wow, this resolution is turning out to be harder work than I thought! I can't believe it's Friday already... and five days since my last post. It feels like yesterday!
Is it just because I'm getting older that the time seems to pass so much quicker? I am getting older, after all. Or is there more to it? Like, I don't know... maybe I'm having so much fun? No, that's not it. It's January in Aberdeen, and I'm not done with my thesis. Okay, perhaps it's because I'm so busy all the time. Not exactly... I work on my thesis, but sitting on my bum in front of a book or a laptop isn't exactly *keeping busy* in order to make time fly. What about because there is so much to do? Yup, that one fits-- I feel like no matter how much I do, there is four times less time left to do the rest in. Time is going very disproportionately. That's just so unfair.
What kind of things make time go slower? I need to add some of those to my life. I know! Waiting for something exciting to happen-- like looking forward to a holiday, or visitors coming (hint hint, folks!). Normally January, and winter in general here feels really slow, so that's no help (or not enough help, I guess). Having nothing exciting to do also makes time go slower, but that seems like a contradiction with my first thing. Nevermind, it still does... except in my case just now, I guess. Usually having a paper to write makes time drag... but I guess I'm feeling the pressure to be done by a certain time (which is too quickly approaching... hence my problem). I need a time-turner-- where is McGonagall when you need her!
Something to make me not quite so brain-dead would be nice, too... but I can't have everything. =) Hopefully tomorrow I'll feel more like tackling something serious, or at least less rambling!
