Events earlier in the year have motivated me to pick up learning German lessons. One phrase that stuck with me while I was reading a book in German was das unbarmherzige Verrinnen der Zeit, which translates into the merciless passage of time.

And the ironic twist is that brutal prioritization I wrote about seven years ago, kicked in again:
