Sleepwalking my way through life: Wanted: Quiet watches



Wanted: Quiet watches

It would be simple to say that the clock has begun ticking and that this piece of fact has come to my attention suddenly and without warning; but it has not. The ticking has been incessant, always present in the background as it patiently counted down the months, weeks, days…

Days. Now there are only days standing between me and the end. I never really thought about it, shrugging it off and changing the subject before the idea could be pursued further; letting it linger on the edge of memory before forgetting about it all together. That was fine with me, I did not have to think about it just then and I was safe for a good long while.

My exam results are released in seven days. This time next week I am going to be sitting in the exact same spot I am now, staring at the bland A4 envelope that contains the conclusion of a years worth of education. I wonder what I will be like when I open them this year; jump for joy and blast music like I did for my Standard Grades, or perhaps sit quietly sipping a glass of coke and pondering my future like last year.

The ticking is becoming louder with each passing second, an ever constant reminder of what is to come.

Moop.
