On the subjective notion of Time

"Time is more like a big ball of wibbly wobbly...time-y wimey...stuff." ~ Doctor Who

My PhD life has been a supreme juggling act lately. It’s been a period of dangerously high levels of multitasking coupled with dangerously high levels of caffeine consumption (to keep warm and cozy is my excuse). My previously-important “mental warm-up” and “mental shut-down” buffer-times at the start and end of my days have grown very short now, and my mind is racing with reminders and ideas even in my sleep. I find myself thinking or reading or writing for most of the hours of the day. I think I might have even heard my to-do lists sigh.

These insanely busy days have got me thinking about Time in all sorts of different ways.
