Chasing the clock

When did time "all of a sudden" become so scarce? I feel like in the last 6 months or so I have done nothing but cross the days off my calendar at lightning speed!

When I was a kid I wished for the school term to end, counted the days until Christmas and prayed that my high school years would hurry up and be over already! Now I think to myself... you silly silly girl!! I'd give anything to have another few hours everyday on my watch just to get the "me-time" stuff sorted (or the housework.... Oh my bathroom is in deep neglect right now!)

I'm finding myself getting busier and busier as the days go on. I have to admit, when I got my "cruisy" uni timetable earlier this term I was thinking that this course was going to be a breeze and I'd have so much spare time for myself.... WRONG! So so wrong!

I spend a maximum of 3 hours a day on campus in class lectures or tutorials or hands on workshops. With the little amount of face-to-face time with my lecturers comes a mammoth amount of homework in my "me-time"! Since I have taken up casual afternoon/night work also I am finding myself running from home to class to work then home to quickly whip up dinner and do some more homework and then crash in bed sometime around midnight. Squeezed in there is also an hour gym session and sometimes a load of washing!

When did life get so busy?

I like to pride myself on keeping in touch with friends and family at least via email or the odd Face Book message or comment. Close family I like to Skype with or call but I cant even seem to find the time to do this. I'm flat out squeezing this little blog-post in today!
How do the incredibly successful, highly busy, mothers or wives do it all?! I don't even have kids  thank God for that at the moment because I know the poor things would go hungry right now because my fridge is bare and the groceries might have to wait until tomorrow!

How do you keep on top of everything and stop "chasing the clock"?



  1. It's true what they say that the older we get, the faster the years fly by. I wonder why that is! x

    1. Agreed Maxabella!
      I dont know why it happens when we get older but I wish it would slow down!!
