Daylight Savings time sucks!

It's only an hour earlier here in New York and it's soo freakin' dark by 5:00 and the nights are endless. I feel jet lagged!

It's getting dark earlier here in Alabama too. I can definitely tell the difference. I'm even getting tired earlier.

This is one of the worst traffic days of the year. People freak out during the evening commute because it is so much darker.

I love it because I get up earlier. I made it into the office by 9AM today. That was a first in a long time.

Dark when I get up, dark when I go home from work. Next time I'll see daylight - April. Great.

Traffic wasn't really worse here than usual. That comes with the snow.

Hate it Tonight I had to walk home from class in pitch blackness, icy rain, and wind. And I only had a thin jacket b/c my bf was going to pick me up but couldn't after all. I listened to 3 different versions of Beautiful Day on the walk home.

i'm nocturnal anyway, so i don't really notice. except that i end up going to sleep earlier cos the sun comes up earlier.

daylight savings is rough on vampires as well as humans.

i kid, i'm not REALLY a vampire...

For about the first week after we fall back I always feel as if I'm running late. Too much stress! Other than that, it's not that big of a deal for me, as I make my own schedule for the most part anyway.
