Time Change and other things

So, I know the title of that post invigorates you beyond all measure! Here's the thing. I offer you a list of why I hate daylight savings time. (And I know I'm probably 1/1 who hates's ok, I dare to be different.)
1. My body only likes to be awake for about 13 hours. When it's daylight savings time, those hours are 8:30a-9:30p. 8:30 is not a respectable time to come to life for an adult. 
2. I like the sun to stream in my windows as I'm getting up and preparing for the day. In daylight savings time, I have to wait until approximately too late for that to be practical. 
3. At about 8 p.m., I like to be in my PJs and relaxing for the evening. So, honestly it doesn't matter to me if it gets dark at 6:30 or 8:30 or anytime in between. Most likely, if I'm outside, it's at a function with the ability to turn on lighting. 
4. Honestly, this is a first world problem, and I completely understand that. It's super annoying to have to reset all of the clocks in the house and car, as well as all of my watches to match my iPhone time exactly. Most frustrating is making the microwave and oven match, since they're side by side. 
5. I'm not the biggest fan of change, and even the smallest changes irk me for way too long. 

So there you have it. The top 5 reasons I dare to be different and prefer non-Daylight Savings Time. (That's called Standard Time, right? I don't remember). And, as a bonus #6, we aren't farmers who need extra light for the harvest (which is why DST was established). It's simply no longer necessary. 

In other news, I've had a difficult time making myself get up before 8:30 this week. So, my morning routine has fallen by the wayside and my house is a disaster. I suppose I can't blame that on the time change, so off I go to remedy the situation!

What "time" of year is your favorite? Why?
