Change Your Clocks in Europe

Europeans: Daylight Saving Time has ended and you need to set your clocks back an hour (except in Iceland where DST is not used.) DST will begin again on the last Sunday in March.

North Americans: Your DST will end next Sunday; except for those in Saskatchewan, a small part of British Columbia, Hawaii, Arizona (excluding the Navajo Indian Reservation), the state of Sonora in Mexico and all of those other random places where DST is no longer observed for some weird – and oh so logical, according to the people who decided it – reason. Oh, and I believe Mexico uses a different schedule for DST, so border towns never know what time it is. DST will begin again on the 2nd Sunday in March for the US and Canada.

North America wins the “things that are unnecessarily complicated and confusing” contest!

Why is Jennie no longer in France?

I created this blog in September 2006 when I moved to France from Michigan to teach English. Many of the earlier posts are about my personal life in France, dealing with culture shock, traveling in Europe and becoming fluent in French. In July 2011, I relocated to Australia to start my PhD in Applied Linguistics. Although I am no longer living in France, my research is on foreign language pedagogy and I teach French at a university so these themes appear most often on the blog. I also continue to post about traveling and being an American abroad.
