after attending last nights gladiators playoff game win at the Q with georgia peach, her nameless husband and donkers and with it being donkers birthday and all (plus i'm still recovering from the long weekend), let's just say it was a bit hard to get out of bed this morning.
i could not wake up.
i slept right through my alarm. i wasn't late for work or anything. i still woke up in time due to my trusty setting of the clock 20 minutes ahead of the "real" time. but this sleeping through the alarm has been happening a lot lately. it's obnoxious.
but i'm going to go ahead and blame the alarm clock.
i have a pretty standard clock radio that has a couple of additional wake up options such as a church bell chime, a buzz (not the good kind) and ocean waves. i have tried them all.
now while all of these sounds may wake up some people they just aren't cutting it for me.
seriously, who can wake up to ocean waves?!?!
and the church bell chimes, are probably the loudest most obnoxious sound ever (worse than the sound of my voice even), and instead of waking me up i end up just turning the whole thing off and going back to sleep.
the buzz worked for awhile till my body got so used to the sound that my arm would just hit snooze automatically and i would never really wake up.
this buzz phenomenon has now happened with the radio too.
i have my wake up station set to NPR. not because i enjoy listening to the content in the morning but because for the most part it is always going to just be talking. very consistent. where if i have a radio station on you never know what you are going to get, much like a box of chocolates.
so unfortunately now, my body has gotten used to the NPR alarm and my inner lazy sleeper brain who doesn't want to get up flings my arm directly to the snooze button, while the other side of my brain who knows i have a crap ton of work to do and would love to actually go to work NOT with wet hair and no make-up on loses the battle to the lazy sleeper 4 out of 5 work days.
i don't know what to do.
do i just need to get a new alarm clock - one that maybe sings disney tunes or rocks out to van halen?
because me hitting snooze 6 times in a row whether it is consciously or subconsciously just isn't working out.
how easily do you get up in the morning? what or who is your alarm clock, does it work?
