Daylight Saving Time

Daylight Savings Time happened! It’s quite upsetting, becuase I totally forgot that that was a thing, and I’m now an hour short on time to Do Things today.

On the bright side, it appears that I forgot to do the ‘fall back’ thing with my mechanical watch, so it’s conveniently already showing the right time, and the rest of my timekeeping devices are digital and reset themselves automagically.

I find Daylight Savings Time a bit weird, though – does it have a point, any more? Having just skimmed through the Wikipedia article on the subject, I’m going to say… maybe? The main arguments in favor appear to be “more leisure time, and we save electricity,” while the main arguments against it are “inconvenient and confusing, and no, we don’t.” So it appears that we mainly keep doing it because there’s enough cultural inertia behind it.

Anyhow, that’s all you’re getting of a post today because I have an hour less time to write an essay and do my various other bits of homework, so I’m going to go get started on those projects. Enjoy your slightly-different day.
