How are you liking the time change?

If you live in area observing time change to standard time, how are you liking it or not?

For me I actually don't mind it too much. It's helpful in a way, since when I get home from work I know I only have about an hour before dark. So I usually go for my evening walk/run early. Then when I get back I take a shower and it's still only about 7 PM, and I'm finished with dinner by 8:30. I mean, I can't believe it's only 9:40 right now even.

So generally, I've been getting to bed earlier, since it feels late and I'm usually tired out by 10-11 PM. And that means I wake up earlier which is nice, since I can lie in bed for a bit before I get up. Before the clocks moved back I didn't wake up until I really had to get out of bed for work.

Also last weekend I went to bed pretty early and Sunday I woke up at about 6:30 and just stayed in bed for a few hours reading, which was especially nice since it was quite cold.

On Friday nights it's been weird though, because I go to the gym after work and it was usually light for about an hour after I got done working out, then suddenly it's dark before I even get to the gym.

Underneath the cold November sky, I wait for you... As the pages of my life roll by, I wait for you... I'm so desperate just to see your face, meet me in this broken place...

Be a little brave for a little bit of time.

Honestly ****ing hate that they do this every year.

Lucy's bitten
Neck is bleeding bad
The teeth have long departed
Yet the desire burns strong
On in desire for destruction
One on which she'll depend
One that ceases to deepen
Too near bitter end

Black through the mountains
She turns her loosening ring
Guardian angel sings
"I think you've lost your wings, but you're still yours
You're still yours, you're still yours"

I don't like it that much. It's easier for me to see in the mornings when I drive to work, which is nice, but if I want to go on a walk after work, I need to rush home so I have enough to feed and play with kitty first.

It is the light she longs to find,
When she delights in learning more.
Her world is learning; it defines
The destiny she’s reaching for

Meh, I don't care at all... It has no impact on me...

Even shy people can be sassy sometimes...
I'll put drunk raccoon in my signature as well, because I CAN...

I wish they would quit this changing the clocks back and forth. Both ways it screws me up and especially my two cats. Now they wake me up an hour earlier.

troll: man, we got a lot of snow
yooper: eh?
troll: three feet, man!
yooper: yah
troll: no school, man, it was sweet
yooper: you closed school for three feet of snow?!?!??!?
troll: you like excessive punctuation, don't you?
