I agree, NM. It is such a pain in the butt and hard to get used to it being dark at 6pm now. Because I've always been a night owl, I just have to set a bedtime for myself or I'll lose track of time and be up all night. With it being dark so early, it makes me want to go to bed early...which wouldn't be terrible, except when I do, I end up wide awake at 2 am or so and can't go back to sleep.
Ugh, I much prefer the summer time where it stays daylight later. Since I'm not really a morning person, I like to be able to sleep in until 8 or 9 and still have 12 hours of daylight left LOL.
