It’s August 1, and despite August following July every year,for some people this is all a bit too much to handle.
In 13 minutes it will be August and that's the 8th month of the year and HOW HOW HOW HAS THAT HAPPENED😱— M O L L Y â¨ (@beauty_spectrum) July 31, 2017
Some people are celebrating the arrival of a new month and a chance for a fresh start, love and light etc etc.
But the year’s eighth month has arrived quicker than many would have liked or expected, with a number of people questioning where time has gone.

It’s just not making sense.
Some people out there are using August as a marker to look back on the year so far and take note of how much they’ve achieved.
Whether time is actually speeding up, as some scientists believe, or it’s all to do with perception, one thing is certain: Christmas is fast approaching.
1st August uno? Merry Christmas guys 😂🎄— NAY🇯🇲🇯🇲🇯🇲🇬🇾 (@coolie_nay) July 31, 2017
But hey, it also means something else – something that can either make or break this month depending on your preferences.
When you realise it's August 1st and the season starts this month! 🙌🙌🙌 pic.twitter.com/QJs0EpXB07— Football on BT Sport (@btsportfootball) August 1, 2017
Whatever the rest of the year brings, it’s sure to come quickly.
OMG It's August. How did that happen? It's like I went to the bathroom and half the year has passed. What witchery is this???? https://t.co/7ZBuB4o2qK— Gok Wan MBE 🌈 (@therealgokwan) August 1, 2017
