Time, don’t we all wish we could control it.
Here are some sayings that we use in English we when talk about how fast time goes by:
Time flies
(Wow, time sure does fly! It’s already been a year since I moved away.)
Time waits for no one.
(Time truly waits for no one, it just keeps on rolling. Therefore you should make the best use of your time.)
Time is against me.
(I didn’t get everything done that I needed to because time was against me.)
That happened faster than you can say… (use any word)
(This week went by faster than you can say onomatopoeia.)
In the blink of an eye.
(Parents may say, “My children grew up in the blink of an eye.)
Before I knew it
(Before I knew it, it was already 8:00am and I was late for work.)
