I’m a huge fan of Drake and anxiously anticipating his album, Take Care, to drop on October 24. Today, he posted the artwork for the album, but I was actually more interested in the short post he included:
“Feels like it’s been so long. Is life moving so fast in this generation that when we desire something it begins to move in slow motion? Are we just used to getting what we want right away? Or do we require one another to feel right about all that is going on around us? Maybe our anticipation is justified by the fact that we genuinely cannot wait to share a moment again? Either way, your life and mine are scheduled to meet on October 24…I wouldn’t miss it for the world.”
It was interesting because I feel like the topic of time has come up a lot lately. Recently, while on vacation, my friend Adrian mentioned how it’s nice to have time to think and process things when away from home. Because when you’re living and working and socializing and whatever else each day, you don’t even have time to do that. For instance, if 10 different things happen in one day, how can you possible really reflect on any one of them? Whereas when you’re on vacation or moving at a slower pace for whatever reason, you can really process things.
But then again, that made me think of Myles Kovacs, the founder of Dub Magazine, and what he said about time. How, it’s actually when you’re moving fast that you can stay ahead of the curve and see everything line up around you. And it’s when you’re moving slowly, that everything’s rushing past you and overwhelming.
Just thought it’s interesting how our generation keeps struggling and contemplating concepts of time. Or maybe I’m just delirious from exhaustion and looking too deeply into things!
That’s what I loved about study abroad – just sit in a square with some good food/drinks, people watch and ponder life!
I feel like even on my vacations I don’t have time to think!
