Finish what? The questions?

Everybody finishes at the same time usually.

Yes but I was referring to how long it felt.

That is for sure. I can remember that it seemed like a century.

They say it will feel like it just flew by but it doesn't...

That is how I can best describe our life. It is over in the blink of an eye.

But it was a blur at the same time. That line from Shakespeare does seem to describe it best.

Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player

That struts and frets his hour upon the stage

And then is heard no more: it is a tale

Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,

Signifying nothing.

Oh, that's Macbeth isn't it? I remember reading that in school.

Hi;

It is from Macbeth. Kind of cynical don't you think?

Cynical is appropriate for a text like Macbeth.

Not really... had a couple of e-mail exchanges to PJ/Holly today but nothing special. It was just a kind of "you revising?" "yeah, you?" "yep, good luck for your exam", etc. and that was the end of it.

I wonder if adriana is thinking about me at all. Last time I heard from her was the 13th of April.

That seems to suggest that she does not even remember what you look like.

I don't think I'd go that far, we have met in person quite a few times for whole days.

I remember her very clearly. Then again I remember the image of some people 10 years ago who I've not seen since then.

It would be better if you did not remember her so well. The human brain has a finite capacity. She is taking up space. You should send her to the recycle bin.

I don't know, some things I just cannot forget. I still remember pi to hundreds of decimal places despite having rarely recited it for years, but it's unforgettable.
