I was just getting to where it was almost light when I get up for breakfast (6AM) now it's going to be dark again. I would also like them to pick one and stick with it.
I changed my clocks around the house, now I have to go adjust the church tower clock which I take care of. That should be fun. It's a fussy little 1/4" brass piece that has to be moved a minute or less at a time. In the fall I can just shut it down for an hour til it catches up.

I think I'm one of those rare people who just doesn't care. It doesn't bother me at all. DH has fits for weeks because his "schedule" is off. I collect clocks, so I'm constantly changing batteries and winding clocks anyway. I have always been a night owl, so bedtime is 2-3:00 AM and I'm usually awake by 7-8:00 AM. I do love the long summer evenings at the cabin though!

I'm with Anniedeb - it doesn't bother me at all. I actually look forward to it! In the spring, we get longer days and daylight to drive home from work. In the fall/winter, it signals football and holidays, both of which I enjoy immensely.

Perspective.

I rather have it stay lighter longer. I do not like the dark. I don't mind it being dark when I wake up, it becomes daylight fast. When it's dark at 6 pm it takes all night to be daylight again.

Wiki says:

DST was
first implemented in the US with the Standard Time Act of 1918, a wartime measure for seven months during World War I in the interest of adding more daylight hours to conserve energy resources.

I think it is ridiculous to have everyone adjust clocks twice a year!

I'm in the "pick one and leave it" camp. I'm up early by nature, always have been and don't see it changing now. Last week, my husband needed to be picked up at the airport at 2AM due to a flight delay and then change. Got home at 3AM. I was still wide awake before 7.

Last year, for the first time, I noticed that the "fall back" change was as hard as the "spring forward". I've been retired for a few years, so I don't really lose sleep for the spring change. It's the change in schedule itself that throws me off, I guess.

The change in the schedule throws me off too. I am also retired and every time change knocks me for a loop for about the first few weeks. I'm an early riser no matter what the change is, but still, it seems to be an internal timing. The older I get the more I notice it. Then, by the time I really get used to the 'time change' it's time to change it again, and the loop starts all over again.
