I know Daylight Saving Time isn't very popular among people here, but some of you must be excited about this weekend, right?

I'll admit, eating dinner by natural light will be pretty exciting after all these months.

I dislike getting an extra hour to sleep in during my spring break, of all times.

You mean losing an hour of sleep?

All of you who are commenting on the effects of doing things an hour earlier/later are missing the point that it is inherently silly to change what you call the times to make it sound like you are going to continue doing things at the same time of the day as before, rather than just admitting the shocking, horrible truth: that you are going to do things at different times.

I do personally find, though, that daylight saving changes tend to work in my favour: The timezone is shifted back by an hour towards the beginning of my Easter break, when I am typically getting up later each day anyway, gradually moving from about 8AM local time from my school routine to about 1PM local time which is when I need to get up to have lunch with my family. The timezone typically gets moved right in the middle of this, so it just means that I have a bit less of a lie-in.
The time when the timezone is shifted forwards an hour usually falls a day or two before I need to go back to school from some other break, meaning that I do not have to drag my sleep cycle as far back to be ready for school.
