spring forward sucks.

That's right, I said it. It totally sucks. I know that some of you will use the popular argument, "It stays light so much later now, I love it!" However, I've decided that the people that use this argument are either, a) college students about to go on spring break, or b) people that don't have to be at work until 10am.

What it means for the rest of us... is that when the clock says 5:30am, your body is feeling 4:30am, which is too dang early. It means your morning commute to work is done in the dark. It means you need an extra shot of caffine to stay awake during your commute. It means you will stay up later (because it is light longer) and 5:30am will come all too early again. It's a vicious cycle.

I totally agree. I want my hour of sleep back.

I HATE this time thing. I am ALWAYS asking Kevin what the "Real Time" is when I want to know the time. And no, I don't mean the time that is listed on the clock, I am talking about the time it was before that precious hour was STOLEN FROM ME. It haunts me like this until the next time we correct this epic mistake in the Fall. True story.
