Usually it throws me way off schedule. Especially the last time. It seems as if we just had daylight savings time. But it will be nicer that it will stay lighter out longer. I enjoy that. It will unfortunately throw my daughters schedule off as well.

In a rather agitating way. If I thought I could get away with not personally acknowledging the time change and just acting like business as usual I would. The huge problem is that I can't get away with it. And the thing is, an hour of something has been sacrificed. And given my busy schedule, sleep is being that something that is going to be selected to be the thing that is just going to be absolutely and positively sacrificed no matter what. This is just something that people are hanging onto, even if it serves no purpose. Other than to annoy people by screwing their internal clocks all up to pretty much everything. It won't be the first time I've made this rant, I've been making this rant for years, long before I have gotten on myLot and for sure long before I got on the Internet. It is just mentally jarring to have one time in my head and another time on the clock that I am looking at. And it will take a time before I get ready...about the time where the clocks are changed yet again.

I don't think that it will affect my life in such a big way. I don't use the computer 24 hours of the day and I also don't have tons of electronics so charging will not be a problem. My coffee maker will only be the one sacrificed. I think I will only be using it once a day.

Daylight Saving Time is time system where countries like the US advances their clock by 1 hour so that evenings have more daylight and morning have less. This is important in saving energy.

It messes up my schedule a bit. Like I get hungry, get sleepy or wake up the same time I did before. Honestly I don't know if it is so necessary like they say... in the winter if the sun rises one hour earlier then it gets dark one hour earlier too. I don't know if it saves that much energy everywhere, as nature itself evens it out within a month.

At least we save a little energy for that one month that you said nature neutralizes.

I don't like it when it starts because I lose that one hour of sleep, precious sleep.I also dislike the way that the time in relation to the sun going up and down feels weird, but on the plus when it over i do get to sleep and extra hour. I'm not sure if the advantages of daylight savings out weights the disadvantages. So as of Sunday I'll just be waiting for Daylight savings time to be over so I can get my extra hour of sleep. -A sleep deprived mylotter who doesn't like to lose sleep

i understand your point and that is true. DST has both negative and positive sides.
