How Time Flies...

Hey everyone

So, this is an unplanned post and I'm writing it just 'off the cuff' but I just feel the urge to write - apologies if it's a tad rambly but you should expect that of me by now :P

I've just come back from a lovely meal out with my best friend and her family for my goddaughters birthday - she's two. Two. How did this happen? I remember the day that she was born as if it were just last week - not two whole years ago! Having said that - it's also as if she has always been there - she came as somewhat of a surprise but has slotted into the family so seamlessly - it's like she's always been there. I'm so proud of my best friend - she's become an amazing mother - just like I knew she would be.

We heard the news that one of the guys on our course had just got engaged to his girlfriend after knowing her for a year - some people were shocked at just how little time he'd known her but one guy really put it into perspective - he'd known her for 1 twentieth of his life.

How crazy is it if you think of things like that?

My goddaughter is two so that's 1 tenth of my lifetime.
I've known my besties - K, G and C from uni for 1 tenth of my life. 
I've known my home besties - L, S and Lj for 2 fifths of my life time.
I've been with the bf for 5 years so that's a quarter of my life - a quarter!

These realisations have made me realise just how fast life is flying by.

I applied today for my last set of student finance for my next year at uni - it really doesn't seem that long ago that I was applying for the first time. Technically that is the first 'last time' I will do something for uni - I feel like I'm already on a countdown to graduation and to be honest I'm not really a fan. 

I wish there was a way to just hit pause on my life and just have some time to enjoy things.

To be honest - I think I may be having a mid-life crisis early! Is there such a thing as an 'end of teen crisis'? Is it just me that feels/felt like this? - I'll be twenty in the summer and already I feel as if my life is zooming past me and I'm just hanging on for the ride! 

I watched my goddaughter today and thought that she has her whole life ahead of her - in just 18 years she will be in the same place that I am right now - and if the last two years are anything to go by - it will come around in the blink of an eye.

This re-enforced the fact that every moment of life is so incredibly precious and we shouldn't let any moment just pass us by.
