One time me and my family went to Disney World, and we had fun, did a lot of stuff. When we got back, a LOT of stuff happened with schoolwork. We had to catch up on it. And all that homework catching-up happened right after the trip. But the trip seemed to happen so recently, even though it was one and a half years ago, as of this comment. And all that homework seemed to be so long ago.

In other words,as we get old,if we can keep ourselves attached to activities and work,time won't feel like it's passing fast. Lack of activities is the main reason we feel time is passing by so fast, especially after the 50s. PS- I am only 21 and already feel this lol

People like to praise social media and services like netflix but they really are somewhat of a bane on society. How many people waste hours on end scrolling through social media while unconsciously feeling no gratification at all? On the contrary it makes you feel empty and bored but loads of people put their brain on autopilot and just go with it. I believe these things are highly ranked reasons of why depression and other mental problems are on the rise. You see so many people apparently living the perfect life with the perfect body and perfect face and you're nothing in comparison while the general rule is that nearly everything on social media is fake in all kinds of ways. Reducing ones screen time is one of the best hints there is nowadays, people are literally scrolling their time away and deeply inside they hate themselves for it.

Doomscrolling is a curse. It heavily fragments your attention span and I feel like a lot of us are collectively realizing the consequenses. Vsauce is one of the only few youtubers left that I take 30 minutes out of my time to watch, otherwise anything else longer than a few minutes I can't be bothered by because I tend to zone out. And I've noticed more and more lately that there's been a huge surge of videos coming out that are less than 30 seconds long in general because content creators know people these days tend to prefer short and simple. It's become a similar habit to me as mindlessly scrolling through reddit. I can't be alone in noticing this trend.
