There's an interesting Reddit thread that attempts to explain why, as we get older, time feels like it's speeding up. The reasoning boils down to: (1) When you're a kid, everything is new and interesting, and being inundated with new input (oh look, a leaf!) all day long makes it seem like everything takes a long time; and (2) When you're young, a year is a significant percentage of your life, whereas once you're 20 or 30, a year really doesn't represent that much of your life so far.
Anyway, that's why you're like Holy shit, it's October 17? right now.
