    Hate Darkness

    I dislike when it gets dark early. I am afraid of the dark. It is okay when I'm alone in a room, but not in a dark place alone. It is terrfying. I am afraid of being kidnapped or killed.

    Nope.

    I much prefer when it stays dark in the mornings. If it's still very dark at seven in the morning, it's alright. But when the sky is pitch black at 5:00 pm... come now. That's just not pleasant.

    Especially When Its Cold

    I prefer the times of year when the sun sets later in the day.  When daylight savings time ends the difference is even more striking of course as it's an hour earlier than the prior day.  It seems like the day is over and I don't feel as productive.  During the...

    Boo.

    I hate looking up at the sky at 4 pm to find that the sun is setting already. Even if I've been busy or productive, it makes me feel like the day just vanished while I wasn't looking.

    Words Misunderstood In Time
