Pie update: status bar left side clock extremely annoying, please undo or make optional for notchless!

To see whether I have notifications, I check the left side of my status bar. If it's nice and empty, I feel very satisfied. Pie update puts the clock left unfortunately. Of course this is inspired by the ugly notch phones. My Note9 has NO notch thank goodness! So please undo this or make it optional!

 

This is the problem for me and others: I really have to focus on the left side status bar to see whether I have any notifications. Meaning: I have to search for my glasses and pick up the phone. MANY TIMES A DAY. Even while using the phone, my eyes are drawn to the upper left corner because my stupid brain keeps thinking there is a notification. I want my empty darkness back!

 

This person explains it very well: https://www.reddit.com/r/GooglePixel/comments/8ig44a/android_p_beta_how_can_i_move_the_clock_back/

 

This was my reason for creating my first post on this forum. More suggestions are coming...

I downloaded good lock and for the fun of it,  I got my clock dead center now.

Truthfully, I really don't see what the big deal is about the clock location.  Took me all of about 10 minutes to develop the muscle memory to know where to look for it.

No AM or PM so clock resembles stock Android /iOS

Hi, after the latest update today, the clock is back on the Notification Bar and on the left 😡

However, in the Good Lock App, Quick Star is 'unplugged' so that option is no longer available. Any help would be appreciated.
