Fish Out of Water

Musings and observations about life from an East Coast native now living on the Left Coast in the California State Capitol since 2004. This fish has made her home in Madison, WI (7 years); Portland, OR (2 years); Las Vegas, NV (7 months); Middlebury, VT (3 summers); Marne-la-Vallee, a small town east of Paris, France (6 months); Middletown, CT (3 years); and Marshfield, MA, the fish's coastal hometown 40 miles south of Boston (17 years).

Location: Sacramento, California, United States


Day 345: Daylight Savings

I am not a huge fan of Daylight Savings Time, primarily because it becomes so dark again in the mornings. I tend to be rather sensitive to light and naturally wake up earlier during the summer when the sun rises earlier. At the same time, having longer days that are light until close to 9pm can sometimes be challenging for me, as I find it harder to instinctively wind down at the end of the day when it's not dark outside.

At this time of year, just when the mornings are starting to get light around 6:15am, Daylight Savings Time hits and I find myself getting up in the dark again, just like in the middle of winter. *sigh* I even had to pull out my headlamp for my run this morning!

The only advantage is that my bike commute home in the evening is absolutely beautiful with no need for a reflective vest or any bike lights.
