I disagree strongly if less.

Otherwise I couldn't care less.

But that's a good thing, long days are nice, it's horrible waking up in the dark, going to uni in the dark, coming out of uni in the dark, going home in the dark, never get sufficient amount of daylight then consequently on comes the winter blues and my productivity significantly decreases and my lazyness increases :hmm:

Forward tonight? It actually went back an hour last night (the good change). You had an extra hour of sleep and didn't even realise it. :hmm:

:nervous: I never noticed good job you told me or I would've been out of sync 2moro and arrived early or late some where. :hmm: ah then it's a good change ;D I'm so dozy sometimes. The funny thing is the time updated in some places in our house so I was getting confused by the clocks and thinking "wow that hour went fast" ;D

To be honest, I had no idea either. I rely on my comp and phone for time and they both automatically moved forward. If they didn't, I'd have been as clueless as you. :skeleton:

^lol. I wasn't too pleased with the time change today. Waited forever for it to be a reasonable hour (I have insomnia), got up finally and realised no one would be up for ages anyway!

Always remember: Spring FORWARD Fall BACK! That's what my mom always told me :statisfie I actually thought we turned our clocks back here since everyone in Europe did, but in the US it isn't until Nov 6th!

Good one. Only it might still confuse some Britons because we say Autumn, not Fall :p

From a fellow insomniac I know just how you feel, I've struggled to maintain a normal sleep routine all my life, I'm thinking of getting this :hmm: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Philips-HF34...=16YTG7TKBL9TZ

it's supposed to wake you up naturally like on bright mornings when the sun shines into your room

I can see changing clocks if you're still a farmer. Otherwise, don't bother. Leave the clocks alone.

Winter is supposed to be cold, dark, and depressing. That's why we have Christmas in winter, so it sucks less.

I don't get why people view winter to be depressing?

My favourite season of the year is winter - I love the snow, the cold AND.. the rain :D It gives me a reason to have hot chocolate :p:

But yes, thankfully the time has changed... it's getting so dark so quickly!

That's what I don't like... having to go to evening class in the dark :-\

Well I don't like cold. I don't want to do anything when it's cold and wet outside. If I could hibernate from November until March, I would.

Plus getting up in dark and going home in dark is depressing.
