|RIP Daylight Savings Time|
Technically Daylight Savings Time is the time we operate in during the summer so I “technically” love DST, but since I mentally think of DST as the change in time like what just happened on Sunday I cannot really utter the statement “I love DST” without cringing. I hate the changing of time. We should just operate on DST all year long.
I am not a morning person so the winter time has never been my favorite, but I don’t think it bothered me that much when I lived on the east coast and rode at barns with electricity and indoor arenas. Now I keep my horses at a barn without electricity. And I don’t mean without arena lights, I mean no electricity. So when it’s dark at 5pm and I have to feed after work, I have to do it by flashlight.
You know how some people get depressed in the winter? Well, I get mad. Pretty much any time I have to get up early, I get a little pissed off. If it’s for something one off and fun (like a horse show) I get over it, but as the winter goes on and I have to get up early to ride before work every day, I just get more and more annoyed. I cannot wait for DST 2016.
