Yeah, I've heard that in the usa, they are thinking about extending DST, not keeping it all the time though.

If we had it all the time, like you said, it would be too dark in the morning. Like 9 am it would just be getting light.

Well I heard that they're going to do away with DST completely.

It defintely feels "different" now. I have night classes I attend and it's dark by the time I get there instead of being daylight like it was before. The mornings feel like it's late, but not because it brightens up earlier now.
