‘Oh My Ears And Whiskers, How Late It’s Getting’

“When I was 16 my Grandad passed away. Ever since that day, I became more aware of Time… how we all have a certain amount of Time, as well as those around us. It scared me and it still does. I had just finished my GCSE’s and I felt that horrible pressure of everyone expecting me to know what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. I needed to decide now, the teachers would say. Because Time is tick tick ticking away!

I think that worry mainly comes from education and society, as my parents were always very supportive and always told me to stop worrying.

When I finally decided that I was going to be a photographer, I wanted to be the best that I could. I put so much pressure on myself to reach certain milestones by a certain age, all because I thought time was slipping away from me. I told myself that I needed to work quickly, to work hard, so I could move out whilst I was still young enough to experience life, to meet someone and settle down.. all the while finding the time to fit in babies before I got too old, but just at the right time so I could still have a successful career, yet *STILL* early enough so my parents could one day be great grandparents.

I turned 25 three weeks ago.

Now I feel old! I feel the pressure to do incredible things with my career before I am 30. Time is slipping away.

I often think about my own mortality and that of my family, especially my parents. Am I the only one? I don’t know why I think about it so much. Time is an enemy I can not defeat and can not deter. I just feel like we are in a battle every day.

But sometimes, I sit and I think… time is not our enemy. Time is a gift. The more we worry about how we use it, the more Time we waste. So although Time seems to take a lot from us, I think sometimes we need to think what Time has given us instead.” – Linda Blacker
