Current Mood: pensivepensive

So we’ve gone back to winter time (the ‘actual time’ with 12:00 being the time when the sun is highest in the sky. There’s the usual grumbling (“The government is messing with our clocks again!”) but I really like daylight savings time. Our schedules are not set up such that 12:00 is the middle of your day: rather, you spend more time awake in the PM than the AM. So DST really means that you have more daylight in spring and fall after your working day.

Ahh, time change. Here, in the US, it happens next weekend. Then, dark out earlier!

I don't really care when it comes to myself since I don't really live on a schedule. But I hate the clock change in autumn because it usually means Chris's shift after midnight runs an extra hour, and somehow he always seems to be on night shift that day. I'm glad it's being done away with in Germany, so this will probably be the last time we have to change the clocks.

I honestly don't understand why people make such a fuss about it O.o Setting my clock one hour back or forward is probably the only thing in life that bothers me the least!
