This won’t be a particularly long or in depth post, mostly because I don’t think it needs to be. I imagine many in America waking up this morning are feeling the same way I do. They’re all still a bit groggy and frustrated because today is Daylight Savings Day. Specifically, it’s the day we all spring our clocks forward an hour.
For most of us, it’s done automatically through our smart devices. For others, it’s just a minor inconvenience to adjust all the clocks. There’s a reason why it’s done and I’m not smart enough to break down those reasons. All you need to know is that we gain an hour in the fall and lose an hour in the spring. It’s just something we all collectively agree to do, as if the concept of time is that fungible.
All that being said, I’d just like to add one simple sentiment to the mix.
Fuck daylight savings time.
Fuck losing an hour in the middle of spring.
Fuck the whole concept, in general.
There, I said it. I just needed to get that off my chest. I imagine I’m not the only one who feels this way. I just hope that everyone is able to adjust accordingly today. It’s going to be annoying and jarring, but we’ll get through it.
Like it or not, time moves forward no matter what our clocks say.
