So as the end of Daylight Savings Time descends upon us…or is it the beginning? I get confused.
Anyway, as the time change descends upon us, some of you might rely on the old adage, “Spring Forward, Fall Back” to remind you of how to adjust your clocks. I have a different way.
Shortly after beginning my freshman year of college, my bad-influence, but super-fun roommate told me that she loved the time change in the fall because she got an extra hour to party.
So that’s how I remember about Daylight Savings Time. When I wonder whether to turn my clock forward or back, I think, “If I were freshly arrived at college after living a sheltered and quiet life for 18 years and at 3 am I wanted an extra hour in which to drink vodka shots and smoke cigarettes, would I change the clock to 2 am or 4 am?”
I think you have your answer.
