Seconds to look up but it feels like hours

I've decided against any sort of celebration for my billionth second. Birthdays have always been bad enough, and a surprising number of people find measuring a life in seconds unpleasant. Even people who know better than to trust the inherent deviations in calendars and might appreciate the concept of epoch time.

So no party and no hurrah. 10^9 is going to be my autocratically chosen time period!
