    Daylight Savings

    Did Daylight Savings mess anyone up??
    my brother asked me last night to give him a ride to work this morning at 6:45AM. (Side note, idk if any of you guys are this type of person, but I'm the type of person who, if they have something happened that morning/afternoon, has various dreams of being late to it) So I wake up, it's like 6:50. I didn't set my alarm cause I assumed my brother would've, but I guess he's lucky I woke up. I go downstairs and I knock on his door and I'm like, "Uh.. you gotta be in work in 10 mins bro lol" he's like "nah nah daylight savings, still got an hour" But I mean, my phone says 6:50 on it and I've never had to change the time on it for DSL; It does it automatically. So I try telling him that and he's like "nah nah go away I wanna sleep" so I'm like whatever, fuck you, too, just trying to help. But I did Google it and I sent a pic to his phone and he eventually comes to my room and says "Jess, you were right. We gotta go, now" yeah I fucking knew that

    I do love that extra hour of sleep tho. I just hate it when the time goes forward.

    I totally forgot about DLS. No wonder I felt well rested when I got up 8.

    I didn't notice it. I was awake when it happened, but I was so busy studying, that I just thought that 1 AM was taking too long to turn to 2.

    I really think they should get rid of it. It is outdated anyway. No one uses the sunlight instead of electrical lighting to light their businesses.

    We are in DST in Brazil for 1 month already, and I like it, mainly because of heading home at the end of day with sunlight haha

    ---------- Post added at 12:14 PM ---------- Previous post was at 12:10 PM ----------

    Just a thing:

    On normal clock, 12am on Neo matches with 4am here (hard to wake for reset time, Von Roo, etc)
    When we started DST, Neo midnight went to 5am here..
    When Neo DST started, it's midnight matches with 6am here (way better for reset and Von Roo)

    When DST starts here, we take off 1 hour of the the clock, so noon becomes 11am... Do you add 1 hour when it starts???

    My cat is having a hard time adjusting lol. She plays longer at night. Gets upset we go to bed earlier. She was up all last night getting into trouble eating the decor sticks from my floor vase. Then this morning she was up meowing for food at 4-4:30 because her normal breakfast time is 5:30. Pulling curtains, hitting the door stopper, sitting on my head in the middle of the night. A change of 1 hour is just too much for kitty cat to handle!
