In the UK clocks go ahead one hour on the 25th March 2018 at 1 am the clocks will move forward to 2am.
At least we get lighter evenings but its all very disorientating.

I know.
It really throws me off kilter.
I so often judge what time it is while Im working by the sun/feel of the day.

At least since Ive been waking up at between 3 and 4am, it wont be an issue as far as waking up. lol

I'm ready for the time change. And yes the year is going fast. March is normally a slow month for us but so far it's going fast

And then there are those of us stuck in Arizona. We don't change our clocks here and I love it. Unfortunately it makes for some crazy conversions for things like live television programming.

It means I get to see the sunshine more as a night shift worker, at least for a few months!

I fricking HATE the time change!! Leave the damned time alone!! Time is relative anyway. I suffer for a couple of months after every damned time change.

Sunday is my one day off so I’ll get a day to get used to it. I love the longer days but hate what it does to my sleep.

Ours takes place in the early hours of March 25th too. It never really affects me either way, but this year I'm having a long weekend right then so I will probably not even remember it

I set the alarm just in case.
It did wake me up, but had no trouble getting/waking up.

I actually like daylight savings time. Stays lighter longer for me, so I dont have to rush to get home from work and take the dog out before it gets dark. lol.
(tho lately since Ive been sick, I have not been doing it.......)

Not so much a fan of it being so dark in the morning tho. Oh well. Soon enough it will be spring!
Yeah spring time!
Already seeing the plum trees blooming. Heck they probably have the red leaves already. (like I said, Ive been holed up inside for the last week)

My body is confused. I've set my alarm at the usual time yet I'm waking up at the hour it's used too. I'm thankful I took an extra day off to try and adjust. I may not be able to make it through 12 hours so soon.
