Ageing. As time goes by. by Kid Loco on 2000-03-30 04:20:09

Does it get even quicker than it seems to be now? I was waiting for weeks for something to happen and then it did, and now it seems like years since it did. And yesterday, also seems like a long, long way away. Maybe its the fact that I don't have any large points to look forward to (he says doing his A-Levels in 2 months) but it just all seems a bit of a drag. Anyone else agree? Or are yous all really happy with your lives and spring up gaily every morning to see what joys the day brings. On second thoughts this could have gone into whining and wishing, but seeing as how there is a question there.... OK so its a little obscure but....

  Time is relative to one's frame of reference, which is one's lifetime.
Thus, when I was 5 years old, I spent 20% of my life waiting for the next Christmas. Whereas now, the same wait represents little more than 2%.
Getting caught up in all of that "stuff" you are writing must also create a considerable time lapse.

  I agree with Tommie about the proportional frame of reference. But the other factor to me is that, as I have gotten older, much of my curiosity has actually been satisfied.
This is not to suggest that the magic has completely gone out of Christmas (for example), but when I was 5, I had a very open mind about all the possibilities that just might happen on Christmas. These days, I have seen enough Christmases to know pretty much what to expect, so my looking forward to the holiday is relieved of the anxiety (if also of some of the excitement) it held when I was a child.
The extra bonus is that now, in thinking about Christmas, I have an extensive store of pleasant memories to associate with the festivities. Maybe that is what happens as we get older: memories replace fantasies. If you have lived your life consciously, I don't think that is a bad thing at all.

  And let's not forget... adult Christmas celebrants (or celibates, as the case may be) have credit cards!

  Yes, just another way to keep those holiday memories alive all year 'round!

  I noticed this problem a long time ago. That's why I try to live life in a timeless blur now.

  Hey! Slow poke! YOU need to catch up! Try reading: "The Quickening" for certain insights... I believe another name for this phenomenon is also referred to as the 100th-monkey theory/syndrome (whatever...) So, hurry up! (and be quick about it!!)
Ageing, you'll all have beards if you read this all. by Kid. on 2001-06-12 15:32:11  |  Reply to this
  Its well over a year since I wrote this comment, and though if I were t'do it today, I would alter a few things. I feel I can elaborate upon yesterday being a long way away. Routine, I feel is a good place to start. We all have them, and are part of them, and this is for the best, if you didn't have any grids of reference for your life you would just vegetate (see holidays that go on too long, when you aren't doing all those things you said you would. When you look back, you see all that time, and think "Where'd he go?". I look back a lot, I spend a lot of time reminiscing, especially since I started writing a diary, well, journal really, as its been fairly empty this week, and the last important entry ended in "Golden slumbers, fill your eyes...." along with some anotated sobbing; the reason for which if you know, you know me well. Anyway, I digress. Time, I feel, we can control. We can own it. If we choose to DO something with it, then when we look back at it, we feel a justifiable amount of pride, and instead of thinking about the time it took up, you think of that which you did. So, that's routine dealt with. But, I also find myself in a completely different frame of mind vis-a-vis the dawning of the day. I've met some special people this year, and left some very special people too. What they've taught me, and I hope I've taught them, is joy. You never know what's going to happen during a day. Granted, you might almost know, if you're going into work, or even working in the garden; but you never quite know. Its these moments of joy, these moments of sunshine that crop up each and every day, the ones that to be honest you ought to stop and smile at, but people seldom do, that are the best, for me, the reason I wake up with the blue sky in my hair regardless. I'm going to quote something now. I've probably done it before, but I stand by it, and with it I shall finish my June 2001 sermon. It's good to get it off my chest every now and again. "You can wake up in the morning and say "Oh! It's raining" or you can say Oh! It's raining"". You see? No. Oh well, un pessimiste n'est jamais dešu.....

  I look funny now -- with a beard I mean... I still believe you are a very old soul, for 19 that is... if that is your true chronological age(?) So, what's your major? Poli-sci or Philosophy? Or both???
