“I appreciate I having an extra hour of sleep. I actually like it because it makes me feel like the actual winter and fall is here. I don’t see the practicality and pointlessness of the institution, but I appreciate it makes you feel seasonal.”

“I hate the darn thing. Daylight-saving was about farming and what not. We have a lot of farmers and it’s important for them. Ironically, we don’t abide by farming schedules, so I don’t see the point. Honestly, I like it when the sun is out longer. Seasonal depression and lack of motivation due to lack of sunlight is intense”

“I used to really like daylight-saving time growing up because the idea of ‘changing time’ was exciting for some reason. I don’t care for it much now because it throws off my sleep and I feel tired earlier during the first two weeks.”

Sebastian Mireles, Junior HCOM major
