Only 988 Weeks Left

I turned the big 3-0 this year. Though it’s been months since my birthday, it still feels odd that I can no longer say I am 20-something.

Do I feel old? Of course! I am not in some denial and say I feel young as ever because gosh I have already used up 60% of the years that I have before turning 50.

60%! Where did it all go? It’s amazing how time slips away just like that.

Fact is fact; I only have 20 years before I turn 50.

In days that is 7300 days. Seems like a lot of days, right? But wait until you count in weeks...
That is roughly 988 weeks. Less than a thousand weeks!

Still seems like a lot of weeks?

No, I don’t think so. These past 2 months I have been addicted to Social City. (Now you know why I haven’t posted a new entry lately...). Well according to this amazing calculator on my desk, 2 months are already 8 weeks. There is no tangible benefit from investing that much time, playing too much Social City. Those skyscrapers, those millions of coins collected from the factories will never be real. See how easily one can squander away a few weeks just like that? Gosh, I have wasted 8 weeks creating a city that will always be virtual...

Inasmuch as I want to bang my head on the nearest wall for not realizing this foolishness soon enough, I take comfort that thank God I have realized it now.

What’s written on this cup of Caribou coffee is so right. “Life is short. Stay awake for it.” I no longer wish for weekends to come faster.

It’s time to focus on stuffs that truly matter.
