YOU KNOW HOW BABIES GET ALL QUIET AND CALM WHEN THEY SEE A MOBILE
SO APPARENTLY THEY DO THIS BECAUSE THE MOBILE RESEMBLES BIRDS OF PREY FLYING OVERHEAD THAT COULD POTENTIALLY CARRY THEM OFF
IT’S A EVOLUTIONARY PRECEDENT SO THAT IF THE BABY STAYS STILL THE BIRD WON’T NOTICE AND EAT IT
BABIES DON’T LIKE MOBILES
THEY’RE FUCKING TERRIFIED
I’ve concluded that time is the ultimate enemy; it’s stupid. Speeds up the awesome moments, slows down the dreadful ones. Working your ass off to get this assignment done in time? Time will happily speed itself up to screw you over.
It makes you keep chasing after it, never stops for you to catch up. If you’re early, you probably will end up having to wait for time to catch up. If you’re late, well you’re probably screwed. The knowledge of time just causes stress. Only when you lose track of time is when you’re enjoying yourself.
They say time heals all wounds; they forget the part where it does so by lazily stumbling around, dragging your wounded ass by your feet. It just makes you get used to it. Also makes you old in the process. I guess it does “heal” you in the end, by killing you.
Either way, despite it being the enemy, it’s still is precious. You can spend so much of it worrying, disappointed, or even scared. It’s scary not knowing what’s going to happen in the future. The unknown is always scary but I think life is about taking chances. Step out of your comfort zone. Twenty seconds of courage may change your life forever. We’ll never ever have enough time for anything… so we might as well make good with the time we have now.
