The Shortest Month!
Hello all and welcome to a NEW Daily Blog series from me… TFG1Mike! The idea here is for me to write something, anything, once a day for 365 days. From January 1, 2019 to December 31, 2019. In my 32nd entry, I’ll be talking about the shortest month of the year, February! February is my birth month, I was born Saturday February 9, 1980. Besides the Decepticons’ use of the color purple, the fact that it’s my birthstone, is also why I love it. February has 28 days, except for every 4 years, when it has 29. This 29th day is Leap Day, and it’s happening next year in 2020!
With February being the shortest month, why does it sometimes feel like the longest? Honestly January, February, and March just feel like they drag on when we get to each new year. Why is this? Is it because of being all holidazed out from the holidays? Or is there another reason? As a kid I kinda felt as if February was a fast month, because not only was there my birthday, valentine’s day, and President’s Day, being from Massachusetts we got February vacation!!! What I’ve noticed as I’ve gone from being a child to being an adult, time slows down.
In the last two years though, with everything my wife and I have been through, it seems that time has sped up again. It’s just now February 1st, and I feel as if it should be September 1st! I dunno if I’m the only one who has these kinds of feelings when it comes to time, I hope I’m not. I try my best to fill my day up with doing work around the house, spending time with my wife, and then this writing stuff, plus podcasting. Yet these first three months of the new year… just seem to be at a sail’s pace. Yet once April gets here, the year seems to fly by.
Do you feel the same as I do, how do you deal with slow periods of time? Let me know in the comments below!
Short write up, wasn’t it? Are you sensing a theme here?
Join me tomorrow morning February 2, 2019 as I’ll be writing about that dang groundhog!
