I don't like DST at all. Lucky for me, it's spring break, so I have time to reset my body cycles to an hour earlier. It's a threat to sanity!

DST? I'd like to spring forward and stay there. It doesn't make sense to me; why do we fall back so dawn is starting at 4 or 5 am and it's dark before most kids get home from school? Spring-summer-fall feel right; winter fucks with my body clock seriously to try and adjust, and I'd really rather not.

As best I could this winter, I followed greygirlbeast's CaST (ie: stay on Daylight Savings Time) and ignored the fall back. It seems to help a bit.
