As people get older, "they just have this sense, this feeling that time is going faster than they are," says Warren Meck, a psychology professor at Duke University.
This seems to be true across cultures, across time, all over the world.
No one is sure where this feeling comes from. Scientists have theories, of course, and one of them is that when you experience something for the very first time, more details, more information gets stored in your memory. Read more here.
I've also read something about how as your age, your brain becomes slower, so things seem to pass by faster. It seemed to make sense for me. Anyway, when Andrea tweeted this video that was recorded when she brought Zoie to a Tod's event a year ago, I found myself looking through some albums on Facebook and I found this photo of Zoie and Andrea, taken three years ago in August as well:
I can't believe how many life-changing experiences I've had since this photo was taken, how many trips I've been on and how different things are today. I am so blessed, it's not even funny.
On that note, I can't believe it's already September - I still remember writing an article about 2010 New Year's parties happening around town for TODAY. And it's going to be the end of 2011 so soon?
