Time changes always wreck me. I'll think I'm fine the first day, but then it takes me a good couple of weeks to get used to the switch.
Because I now have a dog with strong feelings about schedules, I've decided that I refuse to acknowledge the switch from Daylight Saving to Standard time this year. Instead, I'm just going to move all my activities up an hour.
It actually works out very well because almost everyone I work with is on Eastern time. If I go to work at 7:30 a.m. instead of 8:30 a.m., my whole team gets in around the same time I do and works until about the time I'm getting too tired to think straight. From a convenience standpoint, it just makes sense.
I'm very much a morning person, so I wake up around 5:30 a.m. anyway. Now that I'm no longer in a band, I don't have to worry about many activities interfering with my preferred 9:30 p.m. bedtime. (Okay, sometimes it's 9:00 p.m.)
I might be a little tired in the mornings, but that's what coffee is for.
