The first half felt a bit slower due to everything being new, and I've been sleeping more during the second half of my life so basically I spent more time being awake during the first half

I’m 41. Time when I was younger seemed infinite, now whizzes by.

Life is going by me so fast these days, probably because I sleep 12 hours a day and I go back into bed when I feel overwhelmed. (I'm on disability now because of my severe depression and I don't work.) The first half of my life went by so much slower and I was so much happier then. I guess that's why they call them "the good ol' days."

Time goes so fast these days, I agree when I was a child time was endless.

I am actually fond of being old as I don't have to join in with juvenile activities, can do my own thing and am closer to death.

Time goes faster and faster as you age.

Good question. Difficult to say really. My childhood, which I enjoyed massively, seemed to fly by any time I think of it. But then, if I draw a line at say 18, the first 18 years seemed to fly by through enjoyment and activity, but so have the years since only in a weird caught-off-guard or 'where the hell did those years go' kind of way.

What about you, life?

Time definitely goes by faster as you get older. No question.

Time used to drag by when I was a kid, now the months race by in the blink of an eye.
