Running out of time....

It seems the older you get the faster time runs out. Why is that? Why does it seem time goes by so quick? The reason? Our brain encodes new experiences, but not familiar ones, into memory, and our retrospective judgment of time is based on how many new memories we create over a certain period. In other words, the more new memories we build on a weekend getaway, the longer that trip will seem in hindsight.
