Doesn’t time go so quickly? One minute you may be at school wishing that you were at college or at work wishing that holiday would come around and before you know it, you are doing something that came around so quickly.
It is crazy to think that I am going to university this September. I feel like we all rush to be adults and grow up and before we know it, we are paying our taxes and driving and doing things adults would do.
I remember when I was younger and I was blissfully unaware of the stress of being an adult and all the responsibilities and commitments that an adult has. I was excited to grow up but remained playing in my blanket fort whilst colouring in fairy pictures and eating cookies and glasses of milk. I feel that so many young people rush to want to be an adult but yet when we get to that stage, it’s almost as if we try and retreat back to our worry free childhood.
I am not saying that being an adult is all bad. We get so many opportunities in life that may be educational or for a specific career and also driving is an amazing stage in life but I just feel that the stress of exams and job can make us miss our childhood so much.
As time goes so fast in life, I feel as though we should enjoy what happens and what may not happen and just enjoy being a child. I remember being so annoyed when I couldn’t watch 15 rated films or be old enough to drive yet it all comes around. Just enjoy what happens in the moment because we are only a child once.
When we are an adult, try and enjoy the opportunities we have. Go out and have fun and go and learn how to drive. Yes there are bills to pay and yes it can be stressful being old but there is only one chance to live in this world. There is no dress rehearsal. Make every moment count as time is just so precious.
I cannot believe that we are in 2017 and it is the middle of January already. Before I know it, it will be exam time and I will be getting ready for university.
My piece of advice is, do not leave something to the last minute because you think you have loads of time. When university applications open, apply for it as soon as you can to get it out the way and make things easy for yourself. Do your teachers keep telling you to revise yet you haven’t as you think you have ages left? It will come round quickly so start helping yourself out a bit. Be aware of how fast time goes. Once you grow up, time only speeds up so things come around so much more quickly.
Time is such a beautiful aspect of life. It is something that we tend to take for granted and it is something we assume is long, but it really isn’t. Do the things you want to do and treasure every second like a gift.
I hope everyone is feeling good and happy!
Until next time,
