    3weeks? For 1 hour?

    Do you never stay up past your bedtime?

    Do you never have to wake up early for something?

    Are all your trips 4 weeks, so you can adjust? :?

    Staying up late isn't the problem - having to get up at what now feels like the middle of the night is. (8am Complex Analysis class tomorrow I'm looking at you) Sorry we can't all adjust as easily as you. :?

    Oh! You're in school. I don't recall time existing when I was in college. I also found most classes to be optional. Eh. Kids these days. :lol:

    I will ask again, though - so if you stay up an hour later than normal, you have no trouble getting up, but bc the clock changed that lost hour now makes a difference?

    EDIT: and who the hell picks an 8am class in college?
    :lol:

    i think the issue with her is now having to wake up while it's dark again? if that's the case, i can understand.

    Once again, the oft-dreaded daylight saving time change is upon us. The day that the clocks “spring” forward also inevitably takes a spring out of our step.

    Sure, the birds seem to chirp a little later, the sunlight shines a little less as we drag ourselves through the morning routine. But as study after study has shown, that seems to be about the only highlight in those first days after the change.

    According to the Better Sleep Council, a nonprofit organization supported by mattress manufacturers, 61% of U.S. adults say daylight saving time affects their work the Monday after the changeover.

    In a survey of 1,038 adults, the immediate effects of losing an hour of shuteye affected everything from people’s moods to eating and driving habits.

    About 29% of those surveyed said it takes a week to adjust to the change, with adults between 18 and 34 needing the most time to get with the new program. (But let’s face it: those at the younger end of that range may struggle to get out of bed regardless.)

    But don’t just take the mattress industry’s word for it. A number of studies over the last 13 years have highlighted the range of health consequences of people ill-prepared to start their morning routine just 60 minutes earlier.

    According to a 2008 Swedish study, there’s a 6% to 10% increase in heart attacks in the first three workdays after the start of daylight saving time. An Australian study the same year concluded that men were more likely to commit suicide in the first few weeks after the switch, and a 2000 study in the journal Accident Analysis & Prevention showed accidents in Sweden increased by 11% the Monday after the change.

    Even your bank account can take a hit from the time change. A 2011 study notes that not only are stock markets more volatile the Monday after a time change, it usually leads to negative returns.

    But sleep experts say all it takes to minimize the effects is a bit of preparation. People should start going to sleep earlier for several days before the change (it’s Friday so better late than never), and set their clocks ahead the night before.

    Otherwise, you could end up like some of the respondents in that Better Sleep Council survey. Some of the more unusual mishaps from the time change included going to an ATM to order food, getting into the shower with underwear on and putting on clothes inside out.

    Its been a running joke with me and my employer for years, I always say on the Friday before springing forward, "I'm going to be late Monday".
    I don't use an alarm clock, wake up naturally and this stupidity F's me up every year.
    This weekend we rock Portland

    I worked with a guy who was constantly coming in 30 or more minutes late.
    I was his boss, and said to him: "I need you to be here before 9am"
    he said, "Thats not convenient for me."

    No excuse, no explanation. If he's just have said he wakes up naturally, I might have thought it over.
    He was fired.

    The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun.

    this.

    although in reality we're really only getting back the hour we gave up in spring for DST.
    still feels good though.
    Stay with me...

    Totally agree. I don't mind this time change, as much. For a few days, it will be light when I get up and go to work! Truly I hate this time of year...from November until Dec 21 when the days are so short it sucks!

    The extra sleep is nice, but it's not worth it being fully dark out when I leave work. :(
