where has the time gone?

where has the time gone?

It’s coming to the end of our second week and I cannot believe how fast time has gone by. I looked through our group pictures today and some of them feel like they were taken a lifetime ago. Time is funny like that.

takes long and goes quick

As it is happening, it can feel never-ending, and yet here we are, half way through our training. I am in awe. ...

Well I’d like to say that getting up at 5:30am and falling back into bed at 11:30pm gets easier but that would be a bold faced lie. In fact, hard as I try my body seems to be working against me.
