The Longest Week Ever

It's only 2 days into the week, and it already feels like 42,000.

It's funny how perception can completely change a person's sense of time. If this were any normal week, just another week with nothing exciting, no weekend plans, nothing – it would be Friday already. But, because this weekend is the most exciting and anticipated weekend of my entire life.. it's taking forever to get to it.

It also seems like my distorted perception of time is affecting others. Almost everyone around me seems to be affected by an extraordinary case of the "this-week-is-taking-forever! blahs". Just ask Katie.

I think it's quite possible that when I wake up tomorrow, it will actually be yesterday.

Daylight Saving Time

Clock at Ogilvie
I've never really figured out how I feel about daylight saving time. It's easy to complain about those first few days, because it manages to throw my already skewed sense of time off even more.

The "extra" daylight is nice, but I can't help and wonder what would happen if we just picked a time and stuck it out. Sure, things get a bit wonky as seasons change, but I'm willing to endure that rather than having to remember to magically increase or decrease a day by an entire hour.

One habit that I've gotten into is fixing everyone else's clocks. Microwaves and stoves are prime targets during this time, along with some VCRs (you know, the ones that still display the time on the front.) This year though, everyone seems to have figured out how to do it themselves – other than my own time-keeping devices, I only had to change the time in one vehicle. Part of me is disappointed – the rest of me wants to pummel that part for being such a nerd.

The clocks here in the library still haven't been updated which always irks me because they're controlled from a central time-keeping place on campus. I'm guessing that the other buildings are all correct, but I have a feeling whoever needs to push the button to make all the clocks advance to the right time immediately is just waiting to see how long it takes for someone to call and ask nicely to put us an hour into the future.
