I hate it. I wish they would stop it. It serves no purpose and only confuses things, especially when not all states observe it. It's especially torturous in the fall when you speed up the process and its dark before you leave work.
Type 6w5 sp/so/sx I think..I have not fully explored this and just discovered it.
I like more daylight in the evening, morning people are wierdos, go back to bed!
The way I remember if you lose an hours sleep or gain an hour, is winters coming you get an extra hour sleep to soften the blow, summers coming you lose an hour in payment for the warm weather.
This. I'd be miserable no matter how dark it was if I had to get up super early in the morning. I'd much rather have the extra hour of light at night. I am much more easily depressed when it gets dark between 5 and 6. I EXPECT mornings to be depressing.
I understand why, working at a nursery. When it's winter, night falls earlier, so you need to set the time back so that you aren't working in the dark.
Why not operate with the sun, rather than against it? The problem is we place more emphasis on the numbers, on the symbolic representations of time, rather than the real cause of a significant determining factor for when we decide to do things. It is a bit amusing that we would come to this solution. It gives us a sense of control over time, I suppose. We like to be in control. It is good to be in control.
