Abstract:

As the world becomes increasingly fast-paced, individuals remark about how “time flies” or how “busy” they are. We argue time and the fast pace of life is socially constructed. By examining holiday letters, artifacts that reflect on the passage of time, we gain a clearer perspective on how people currently construct notions of time and pace of life. As a result of our analysis, we conclude busy-ness is a badge of honor that must be earned and upheld in order to fit into society. Through a better understanding of how people construct time, we gain insight into communication and relationships.

Social construction of time and pace of life 1 I’m not sure whether writing a Christmas letter when I’m working at the speed of light is a good idea but given the amount of time I have to devote to any single project it’s the only choice I have.
