Yep. Been getting up 10 minutes earlier every other day for two weeks. Should not feel any different.

I was kinda hoping Trump would fix this.

Don't turn this political. I hope every president will fix it.

It doesn't seem to be effecting me as much this year. Not sure why, but I'll take it.

Re: Daylight Savings Time Reminder...


I got my first cold in a couple years so I set my alarm. Woke up, figured I felt extra groggy because of the cold. Didn't even think about the time change.
