how i wake myself up.

I'm an ogre in the morning.
Waking me up is a long and hard process.
The night before, I have seriously sit down and think about how I can get myself to wake up at the appropriate time the next morning.

I used to get my dad to deal with me.
But I started to feel bad for him, since he had to start his day wrestling me out of bed.
So, I decide to take on responsibility of doing it myself.

I use my iPod Touch as my alarm clock and I set up a total of four alarms to go off.
Try to follow along. It's confusing.

The first alarm goes off at 5:00am. This lets me know that I need to get up soon.
The second goes off at 5:15am.
Since the snooze on my ipod lasts for ten minutes, it means that the alarm for the second alarm I set goes off at exactly 5:25am.
So, I set my third alarm for 5:24am.
Finally, I set my last alarm for 5:26am.
Leaving me four minutes to get out of bed and into my jogging clothes.

So, a typical morning looks like this:
The first alarm goes off at 5:00am. I turn it off.
The second alarm goes off at 5:15am. I hit the snooze button, and go back to sleep.
The third alarm goes off at 5:24am.
And the snooze from the second alarm goes off 60 seconds later, at 5:25am.
Finally, the fourth alarm goes off at 5:26am, finally waking me up.

I know that all of this probably just bounced right off, but it wakes me up.
And that's what matters.

5:25? That's disgusting. No wonder you need so many alarms. I get up at like.. 12. Unless I have to go to work, in which case I get up around 9. Heh.

Ashley: Bah. You don't have to go to school. Luck you. =]

Jodie-Ann: Oh, I stuff my face with pancakes AFTER I jog.

Jenna: Psh, it gets easier after the first few days, ahaha.

Dani: I wish I didn't have to get up that early. But you gotta do what you gotta do. (:
