It's that time of year again! It's time to change our clocks, and this time, we're moving forward. I dislike losing an hour, but whatever. Daylight Savings during the springtime usually hits me in 5 stages: surprise, confusion, dread, acceptance, and eventually - a long eventually - happiness.
I usually seem to forget that we even have Daylight Savings. I'll randomly look at my calendar a few days before and be reminded of the change. Then to remind myself what change I must make to my clock, I recite, "Fall back, spring forward." Thank goodness the time on my phone changes by itself.
When I wake up on the Sunday morning of Daylight Savings, it usually goes something like this: "Wait, what time is it? Is it 11 AM or 12 PM? Did I miss my brunch date?" Go make lunch and apologize to your friend because it's too late for brunch now, you sleep-deprived fool.
WHY?! In contrast to fall, I'm dreadfully reminded that I'll lose an entire hour this time around. I'll probably wish I hadn't decided to go out the previous night because it will have been 3 AM when it really should have been 2 AM and morning Daisy will have regretted staying out so late. But honestly, I'm mostly upset because of the hour lost today, even though I will probably do nothing.
This is only a stage because there is literally nothing I can do to change time. Mother Nature, you are not my friend today, but you're just doing you're job so you're forgiven.
Finally, I recognize that an hour forward means more sunlight during the day, and that's a key indicator of one of my favorite seasons - summer. I might as well take advantage of all this glorious California sunshine while I can! You know, before fall rolls around and we lose an hour of sunlight 😒
