Mini Post! ミニポスト!φ(^ω^ )

ミニポスト!Mini Post!

One of the many reasons I love Japan: they don't observe Daylight Saving Time. No springing forward, no falling back, and none of the confusion surrounding it.

Ukrainian designer Anna Marinenko's "Japan Clock," much more straightforward than DST.
You may wonder why an adult has such a beef with DST. Shouldn't I be used to it by now? Well, no: growing up in Indiana, I never had to worry about it--because we didn't observe it. However, in 2006, DST was implemented as per a ruling from the General Assembly, and it continues to be a hot-button issue today. Personally, I could do without's just weird to have to wait until the sun sets at 10 p.m. to watch fireworks on July 4.

If you live in the U.S., did you remember to spring forward and set your clocks forward one hour last night?

This has been a Mini Post, a chibi-sized version of a regular meauxtaku post. You may now return to your regularly scheduled internet.
