I think it's experience that makes time seem to pass faster. Drive somewhere once and the trip always seems longer than when you have driven the same route a hundred times. In other words, as life experiences increase, so does the appearance of passing time.

I read some articles regarding this because to me, it has become more noticeable and my life although I am getting older has not changed that much: Time is Speeding Up; Really! ~ RiseEarth There are some different articles written on the subject around the "pulse". It really is very interesting.

It may seem that my days fly by since retiring because I no longer anxiously wait for the 5 o'clock whistle to blow.
