“Be wise in the use of time. The question in life is not “how much time do we have?” The question is “what shall we do with it?””

Anna Robertson Brown

Recently, it has struck me how little time I have left in my second year at university and although my Year Abroad is finally starting to feel exciting and real, I am also really sad at the thought of having to say goodbye to so many people who I have got to know and make bonds with. The biggest fear for me is never seeing them again, or not remaining as close – they’ll have all left by the time I return – so the only thing for it, for me, is to make the most of what remains. As I seem to tell myself often on this blog (and in real life), you only truly regret the things you didn’t do.

“Oh Time! The beautifier of the dead, adorer of the ruin, comforter and only healer when the heart hath bled.”

Lord Byron

I think people underestimate how important time is. Whether you have enough time to do something, too little time and miss something, give enough time to get over something or use your time to have something, its frustratingly fascinating. We’re allocated time in the same way – by the second and the minute- but the time of each individual couldn’t be more different. I think that time has the ability to make something or destroy something.
