I would happily stay in DST for the whole year so we get more light in the evenings than in the mornings! Not that "morning" and "evening" has any meaning for me with my stupid-ass sleep schedule, but more light in the evenings means more light for when Sarah is home and we can do things.

I would rather we, on the east coast US, stayed in DST all year for more evening light, but I like being closer in time to my bb in Arizona during ST, so there it is.

DST is frustrating because suddenly I can't tell when my friends online are awake or not.

But mostly I'm just relieved i doesn't apply to me, because even experiencing it secondhand, I get so confused.

My sleep schedule is already wacky enough that if I am allowed to let it vary, DST does very little to cause a problem.

DST does let all of my co-workers suddenly experience the unfair jet lag that is my life.

California shares a clock with Arizona (which does not partake) part of the year. My best friend forever is in Arizona. The clocks that do not change themselves are generally left on Arizona time the rest of the year.

I'd also rather stay in DST all year because my flat is north-west facing so I get more sun that way, and I find coming home when it's already dark more depressing that going to work when it still is.
