I've got you beat. Not only do I never change my clock, even after a power failure, but I have used the same calendar (featuring a young lady rather immoderately dressed on each page) since 1975.


Don't laugh! It was perfectly good for the years 1986, 1997, 2003 and as recently as 2014. I must wait until 2025 for it to be accurate again, but it remains close enough.


When Can I Reuse This Calendar?

My job starts at 6am, so I wake up in the dark year round, seeing as currently, our earliest sunrise of the year is 5:18am

I hate the time change. When I lived in Arizona, we didn't do it and it was great.

And having the clocks the way that you would like would still result in you getting up in the dark year round. If the clocks were 30 minutes ahead of standard time then in the summer in the UK the sun would rise before 3am in Baltasound and even where I live it would be 4.16am

Time should not be changed. If needed, work hours can change.

Changing the time causes a lot of confusions, especially when international trips are involved.

In the U.S. there are one or two isolated places that don't go on daylight savings time.

Me, I'd like to stay on daylight savings. It's so depressing when suddenly it's dark so much earlier

It's already getting dark earlier, when we go off DST, so it's like a double whammy. I hate the adjustment. OP, I haven't changed my clocks either.

In places like Seattle, sunrise in December wouldn't be until 9am with year round DST
