Flying By

I have noticed something lately, I don't know what it is, but it seems as though as I get older, time moves so much quicker. I remember when I was in elementary school, and it seemed like it would be eternity before I went into the high school. (well it didn't help that I really disliked my elementary school :S) I would be sitting in class all the time, hating that I was still treated like a little kid and I just wanted to grow up so much faster!

Then, by the time I made it to high school, i was a little happier but it was strange. (at my school begins in the seventh grade because we are considered a "college") By the time I could even get used to this new system four years went by in a blink of an eye. And now I am sitting at home just in awe, at how fast this has gone by. But then I also think about decisions I need to make, and if four years went by that quickly, I now have two years left to make all the decisions about my future, and to be honest with you I am really afraid.

Choices for my future career need to be made in this very short amount of time and I still have no clue as to what I want to do. Life is just so overwhelming some times, and the clock speed really doesn't help. :( I think I might want to go into teaching, I love school, always have, and I think I always will, and I would love to make a difference some how and that may accomplish my goal. But then again I also believe every person has a destiny, and I am not quite sure what I am meant to do.

Haha, I just hope that these next two years turn on some light bulb up there, because I am running out of time! Thanks for putting up with my little late night/early morning musing, thanks for reading.

  1. I can totally relate. With only two years left in high school I feel the pressure to preform well so that I can get into the university of my choice, then I have to deal with picking a major and such.....

    Why does time run so quickly?? It's not fair.

  2. I wouldnt rush into it so fast. Take your time and enjoy yourself right now and figure out what you really want to do with your life. I am 25 and have just figured out what I want to do with my life. Funny, I went from wanting to be a teacher to wanting to be a pastry chef.

  3. Nerdy Girl,

    that's actually really awesome! I cant wait till i figure out what I really am passionate about, its awesome you want to be a pastry chef. although that is a very drastic career change. I am the kind of person who is always playing it safe, I will try though to take my time and figure thing out.
