So, here we are again on the eve of Daylight Savings Time.
I got wind of this at some point today while I was working on All The Things. DH had taken the girls out for the day so I could get some work done, since yesterday was essentially impossible and I am woefully behind. When he got home, I pounced:
“Is tonight REALLY daylight savings time?”
*beat* “Yes, yes it is, actually. Tonight is daylight savings time. You get an extra hour.”
“Ohmygosh, another hour. I might actually get everything read tomorrow!”
And that is the sad reality of Daylight Savings time and the graduate student. While everyone else is sleeping in, or spending an extra hour of quality time snuggling with loved ones or out running, I’ll be rejoicing in having an extra hour to wake up earlier and get more reading done. I’m sure there are many out there sharing this poignant reality with me.
What about you? What are YOU doing with your extra hour?
