I would have an easier time if I just made fewer mistakes.

I was not able to start this month's schoolwork earlier because I kept taking care of work e-mails after finishing my progress reports. I read six chapters yesterday, watched two hours of lecture, and took my quiz yesterday before seeing my afternoon clients, but I read the textbook, watched the lectures, and missed the quiz today because I did not realize daylight savings already started.

My professor expressed her sympathy, which is worth more than 95 points if you are insane.

Maybe I should have waited another week to work on my head gasket.

Wikipedia says this changed in 2007 and The U.S. Department of Energy determined the nation used 0.03% less energy the first year they extended daylight saving.

U.C. Santa Barbara determined that Indiana used 1% more electricity--less lighting, but more heating and cooling. They chose Indiana because most of the state did not observe daylight saving beforehand: https://www.nber.org/papers/w14429.pdf
