the internet, 11th march, 2018: where british people read american posts about changing the clocks and american people read british posts about mother's day and everyone thinks "oh shit, was that today? i forgot"

(uk clocks change 25th march and mother's day outside the uk & ireland is the 13th may, relax everyone)

Yeah, this is the three weeks where we wonder if our family in Australia is either 15 or 17 hours apart... or how about 16?

yeah it's the shit. even losing an hour this weekend, which I usually dread, was welcome since the 24 straight hours I needed to be at the hospital ended up only being 23. sorry haters d:]

DS is due to end here in a couple weeks and I will be sad, for that is the beginning of shitty, dark, shitful winter grim.

Here's what I don't like:

β€’ Switching from one to the other.

β€’Β Switching in March while it's still winter.

seriously having to get up while it's still dark is the most depressing thing and totally ruins my mood for the entire day and an extra hour of light in the evening is not nearly enough to compensate for the torture I have to endure each morning trying to wake up early enough to get my kids ready for school/daycare on time.

I mean, it'll be ok in a month or so but still

Yesterday morning I was standing on the platform waiting for my morning train and noticing several unfamiliar faces and thought, these poor bastards forgot to change their clocks. And then I looked at my phone (AKA my alarm clock) which had failed to automatically change the time like it was supposed to have done. Who's the poor bastard now, I was forced to ask myself. Who's the poor bastard now.

I mean, maybe they should move the big change to April? What would that hurt?

(Didn't you read this post of mine that I made 13 years ago?)

That's neither here nor there. I'm just mad that the line in "Celebrated Summer" about how sometime in April they add another hour isn't going to be relevant anymore.
