Hmm...i guessi should've paid more attention when my math teacher spoke of progressions....how seemingly insignificant numbers like two and four grow to giants like 32768(dat's 2 power 15!)....seems not only math works like that ...time does too!!!
This truth hit me like a Tsunami this evening as i sat doodling on my home assignment.
My actual day after college begins at 3 in the afternoon and ends at eleven in the night...that's EIGHT whole hours of your own time which you are free to invest in your homework,or in pursuit of the most jobless person award (which i'm contending for ,by the way),right? WRONG!!!Before you know it,that darn hand has moved over the face of the clock eight times,and you find yourself turning in rather discontentedly at night...
Of late,this situation has become way too familiar with me,so i'm wondering ,where does the time go?
Time's one wily prisoner...so i've learned the hard way.It can stretch itself to infinity when you're struggling with boredom,but it can also sprout loadsa legs and run away when what you need more than anything else is time!
So....i'm gonna solve the enigma of my disappearing time in true amateur detective style...
CASE UNDER STUDY : mystery of vanishing time
VICTIM'S STATEMENT : " I dunno what to do and when (whine!)There's way too much to dos....(whine!).... The only possible explanation ...something's not right!(self-satisfied whine !)
