Yet another question about oil changes...

Wondering if there is some maximum amount of time to wait before changing oil, regardless of mileage. I was thinking that I would change my oil every 7500 miles. I'm only about half-way there and my car will be 6 months old in a few days. If things go at that rate, I won't make 7500 miles until about a year after getting the car. That seems like an awful long time to go w/o an oil change (usually there is a max miles/time duration between changes recommended).

Is this synthetic oil good enough to last that long, or should I just change it every 6 months?

Any advice greatly appreciated. I guess a simple solution would be to drive it more, but I use it mainly as a "pleasure car" right now.
