Day light savings has so many pluses and minuses I really can't make up my mind about it. Realizing it was only 10 am when I thought the morning was gone yesterday was great. Trying to stay up until 10 pm last night was challenging, at best. Seeing the sun when I woke up this morning was terrifically motivating. Seeing the light-sensitive street lamps on in the parking lot when I left school this afternoon was depressing. I don't know if I actually believe the energy savings that result. I do know that there is a spike in accidents the days following the change because of our off-kilter circadian rhythms (thats a really strangely spelled word). Result of this all? I'm tired and can't think clearly enough to figure it out.
The first quarter ends this week. I'm pretty sure a lot of my students are failing, they have until Friday to hand in missing assignments. Hopefully the low grades will be motivation to do better work next semester.
