The Worst Day of the Year
I hate, hate, hate, hate, hate, hate, hate the time change. I cannot tell you how much I despise having to move the clock back an hour for no reason. The change is so drastic. Suddenly it's 5 p.m. and it's getting dark out. And it's 8 p.m. and what was just a few months ago the time when you'd see beautiful sunsets, is now pitch black. They should just outlaw the practice once and for all.
There's really no "Autumn" in my head, there's just Dark and Light, Winter and Summer. And today was when it changed from one to the other. It doesn't matter that I've moved to California so I'm still wearing shorts and sandals well into October, it's the lack of light that sucks. And moving it an hour back sucks more. Actually, it was a little chilly today. Cold sucks too. Bleh.
I think I bitched about this last year... and probably the year before that. Even without the time change, I'm still *such* a miserable bastard in general during the Winter. I really need to get to a place in my life (read: money) where I can live in the Southern Hemisphere for the Winter. Just pack up the fam and spend November through March where the sun is shining a majority of the day. An Endless Summer... that would rock.
