    13-20 was an eternity.
    I remember when I was 25 like it was yesterday.

    The more time that you've expereinced, the faster time seems to pass.

    Remember when you were a kid and you'd just gotten out of school for the summer?

    Remember how far in the distance going back to school seemed back then?

    At my age, subjectively speaking, at least, 3 months now seems like no time at all.

    I sometimes quip that now I feel like I could hold my breath for three months because its such a short period of time.

    Three years seem like no time at all any more.

    I was going to say the same thing. I remember summer vacation seemed to go on forever when I was a kid. Now that I'm an adult...I blink and almost miss it. Seems like my kids just got out of school...now on the 9th of Aug...they register for the new school year.

    Definitely 13-20 seemed longer than 20 to now (which is 31). I couldn't wait to grow up, move out, move on, etc. At 22, I had my oldest son, and now I sit here, looking at him about to turn 10, and I wonder "Where the hell did the time go?" lol Got together with my boyfriend almost a year ago, and it feels like he's been in my life forever. Got divorced almost 7 years ago, and it seems like longer. I don't know if it's watching the kids grow up, or if it's just growing older myself, but I definitely feel like time passes way faster now than it used to.

    The next ten will go faster than that.
