I do not get along with daylight saving time. It doesn't matter that I had a whole week on Spring Break to get used to it because frankly I wasn't getting up at 5:30 am on my vacation. And it doesn't matter that it has only been a few days, because even if I was on it for eight months I still wouldn't be used to it.
You wouldn't think that one hour would make that much a difference, but it does. I am already a late night owl. My ideal sleeping hours i.e. my summer sleeping hours are generally 2 a.m. to 9 a.m. 7 hours or so. Obviously that doesn't fit my current work schedule but when it hits 9 or 10 p.m. on DST I'm not even close to being tired. So I end up staying late and not getting a good night's sleep. I have a better chance of being asleep in the 10 o'clock hour on standard time than I do on daylight saving time.
One of the reasons I get up so early is because I am NOT a morning person. I need a long time to just sit and blink, and really do nothing and let my mind and body wake up. I am not the kind that can roll out of bed and be walking out the door 20 minutes later. But even though I am just sitting and blinking I can barely stay awake on DST. The blinking isn't to bring me to alertness, it is to keep me from falling asleep. There's a difference and it's not fun.
Ok. Have to get ready for work even though I'm still trying to stay awake. Today and Thursday are both late nights at work so I anticipate grumpiness this week. 79 days until summer vacation.
