Honestly, who thought this was a good idea anyway? Hmmm, how about in the winter
, since the days are shorter anyway, we make it so that it gets dark even earlier than it would normally? Sounds like a plan to me! The sun going down at 4:30 really makes my day. Yeah yeah, so the sun rises earlier. Sweet! Since no one is voluntarily up at those hours anyway, why do we do this? And for someone who works 9-to-5
, the only exposure to the sunlight they can possibly recieve is a few hours as they drive to work in the morning. No wonder we have such a thing as seasonal affective disorder
. How is it possible for the serotonin
-imbalanced among us to keep on even keel when we never see the sunshine
This practice is not only completely illogical, but it really messes with people. "Don't forget to set your clocks for daylight savings!" " Wait a minute, do we go forward or backward?" " Duh, it's spring forward, fall back." "You mean I have to get up an hour earlier?!?"
Thank God I'm a raver so it never really messes with my sleep schedule. The problems that it causes me are, "Hey, does Sandra Collins come on at 3:00 old time or new time?"
But I digress. Write your congressman.
