Every Sunday, I get a lovely little email in my inbox from the University of Alberta.
“Late Fees Notification.”
You see. I owe the University of Alberta a whole $2 for overdue fees.
“Oh, shit,” I say to myself every Sunday, “I need to just go and pay that.”
I have been saying that to myself every Sunday for THREE YEARS.
Speaking of which, did you know that my 365-day blog is almost over? I started it on my 26th birthday and now I’m sitting here wondering where the last year has gone.
Speaking of which, did you notice how September is already halfway gone? It was just summer and now it’s almost October.
Hell, I feel like I’m still wondering where February went, and here I am in September.
I can’t even wrap my head around it.
Lesson learned: Time flies.
P.S. When I’m freaking out about time, I like to remind myself of this:
“Nobody has ever experienced anything that wasn’t part of a single moment unfolding. That means life’s only challenge is dealing with the single moment you are having right now. Before I recognized this, I was constantly trying to solve my entire life — battling problems that weren’t actually happening. Anyone can summon the resolve to deal with a single, present moment, as long as they are truly aware that it’s their only point of contact with life, and therefore there is nothing else one can do that can possibly be useful. Nobody can deal with the past or future, because, both only exist as thoughts, in the present. But we can kill ourselves trying.”
It’s from this article, which is an interesting read.
