Does your perception of time change as you age?

As you get older, do you think same unit of time feels shorter, longer, or the same? i.e. How long/short does a day, a week, a month or a year feel now compared to when you were a kid.

This may be different for each individual. Regardless of where you stand, why do you think your perception of time does/does not change?

    Jan 29 2014: Farrukh: In my opinion, undoubtedly yes. At 15, an hour seems lasting as a whole week; at 51, a week lasts just like a couple of days! :)
    Anyway, under usual normal standards of life, is delicious to learn how to better enjoy life's moments, good or not so good. Good ones for happy, not so good for training in the martial art of living.
