Arizona stopped doing that ages ago. Starting this year, Washington has decided to stay on daylight savings time year-round, with the other Pacific coast states and BC in the legislative process for doing the same.
I kinda like it all, the shifting of the seasons, that it doesn’t always have to be light all the time or dark all the time and there’s nice things about all of it and knowing if you just hang around for a few months it’ll change. Unless you live on the equator or something …
I like being up in the dark. Everything is best: shadows are long, lights are dramatic, it’s cooler and quieter, it’s more isolating, and music sounds like it is supposed to. I also like leaving work and seeing golden light or a sunset.
It does start to feel a little oppressive when the day just won’t end and it’s late and time for things to wind down but the sun’s… up there, pretending it’s still noon or something.
I wake up late and go to bed late. I don’t necessarily want longer days, I’d just rather the sun had a schedule closer to mine. Asking for a longer day is just making a consideration to all the morning people out there.
