The reason that time seems to have sped up is because of the information overload that this modern society has placed on people.
I find that when I go someplace without a cellphone and outside stimulus that time seems to adjust back to a stability. Fly fishing on a river for example; time takes on a more leisurely pace along with my personal countenance.
Time for a vacation G.
But getting older does speed up time as we refelect on our mortality.

time perception does change with age. For example.....
A year seems longer when your 10 then when you are 50. This is becasue when you are 10, a year is 10% of your life so far, because it takes up so much, it seems like a lot, thus seeming longer.
When you are 50, a year is only 2% of you life, being a smaller amont of time in you life, it is percived as being quiker.
So yea, it is because you are gettin older.
Does it not seem that the hours, days, weeks and years are flying by at a faster than normal rate?
