over November's barren fields—the blossoming stars 309: November 5th 2019 | bottlecap
- Yesterday I decided to ignore the time change. I’m staying on DST. All my clocks remain unchanged (but for those my family uses). I’ve changed my computer time zone to Halifax. Since I’m an indy-contractor I can set my own schedule and my own clock. And I’m keeping my clock the same, which is to say—according to my internal clock. As far as the rest of the world is concerned, I arrive at the job-site an hour earlier and leave an hour earlier—3 PM (which is still 4 PM to me). I’d rather wake up before the sun and come home with a little daylight to play with. I’ve always hated coming home at night and I don’t enjoy driving then. The first thing I noticed this morning was how happy I was. The whole world shifted and it’s an odd revelation that I don’t have to shift with it. The second thing I noticed was how happy my internal clock is. For me, nothing’s changed except that all the stores are inexplicably open until 6 PM, which suits me just fine. I don’t have to rush to get to them and I love it.
