Jenny. This next story is gonna have me in my element
00:03
It is about that time guys,
00:06
daylight savings is back,
00:09
update them clocks and ovens and all the other appliances that you
00:13
have to update manually.
00:15
Winter darkness is on its way out.
00:18
And so is my seasonal depression personally,
00:22
I hate daylight savings.
00:23
I'm not a fucking farmer.
00:25
So I don't know why we still do that shit.
00:27
And the excuse of there needs to be light when kids are
00:31
are about to get on their school buses like that's not cutting
00:34
it anymore. Like they have,
00:35
they have lights on their phones like I don't wanna hear that
00:38
shit. And also shout out to Mexico,
00:43
they said fuck daylight savings last year and they stopped doing it
00:47
just as a country as a whole.
00:49
Local experts and officials have said that it has led to better
00:52
sleep and other benefits.
00:53
So why aren't we doing it?
00:56
Why are we still following this stupid ass rule?
01:00
Honestly? Like it should just stick to one time the whole
01:02
year. That what gets me kind of a my element.
01:05
Is it just ok now is this time like we've lost a
01:08
whole hour and I lost a whole hour of sleep.
01:11
I am so sleep deprived right now.
01:12
I mean, we were late this morning.
01:14
Yeah. And I,
01:14
to be honest, I,
01:15
I probably fell asleep with my eyes open on one of the
01:18
stories. I don't know.
01:19
I'm just so tired.
01:20
I mean, at least we have an excuse to be late
01:22
for, like, the next two weeks.
01:25
Yeah. That's true.
01:25
That's true. Blame it on daylight savings.
01:27
Blame it on daylight savings.
