I realized this past year that I fucking despise getting up early. Be it for work, school, or anything else in this world I can’t stand, there’s nothing worse than being violently shaken from your slumber by the unforgiving blare of your alarm clock. I hate it more than words can describe. Are there any of you out there who don’t mind this loathsome activity as much as I do?
When I'm in a routine, or have shit to do, I can get out of bed before 8 without too much hassle. My body becomes accustomed to it, and I usually wake a few minutes before my alarm goes off.
If I've been lazy for over a week, though, it takes me ages to get a normal sleeping pattern back. I usually wake up just before 11 when I'm being a bum.
People should just stop ginving answers themselves and not use more than "yes, no, maybe/don't know". Those answers barely fit, because everybody is close-minded.

When I don't have a contract and can drift into my own lazy schedule I usually fall asleep around sunrise and wake around 3-4pm. However, when I'm working I'm usually up well before my alarm, typically around 7am.
I can adjust to any schedule that allows a good amount of sleep, but I need a few hours in the evening to wind down before bed. I've never understood how some people can deal with schedules that has them closing the night before they open, so they've got like 7 hours between shifts to eat, bathe, sleep and do whatever else life requires.
My alarm goes off at 710am and I have to be to work at 8am; the first couple months were hell!!! I would literally stay in bed til the absolute last minute, now my body is used to it. I find myself wanting to go to bed at like 1030 or 11 now and getting up with my alarm at 710 isn't even a big deal; I feel rested and ready to work! First time in my life I've been able to get up and go in the morning without hating my life, only took 23yrs!! not too bad
Depends. If I know I need to be up to do something like go to work/school/make an appointment I have always been able to get up and get the job done even if I had next to no sleep. If however I have nothing to do that day, no matter how hard I try I can never get myself out of bed.
I would love it if I could force myself out of bed by 6 AM. Unfortunately I live on the eastern edge of the continent and stuff like hockey is on till 3AM. It doesn't help that all my favourite sports teams are 4:30 hours behind me. 7PM start for them is 11:30 for me. as a result late nights are common for me.
For reasons even I can't tell, I get restless, and overly uncomfortable, when I get out of bed way too early, unless there is something happening. Most likely, I'd attribute it to being in college, not having jack shit to do, other than, um, dealing with assignments, which I usually do in the afternoon. But, man, back home I'm greeted by a 46 inch Sony bravia, all three of my consoles and rapid internet, with feelings of ecstatic excitement -- at this point, I'm up waaaaaaay earlier than when I usually get up.
" @officervanhalen said:I would have said you were nuts until i began working out of school...class and work are very different animals for sure...that said, getting up for 6AM for work all the time, I HATE when I sleep in much past 9 on weekends now....feels wasteful" Yeah, 6am usually. 9 is not early. "9am is LATE dude! "
I can't get up early if I don't have anything to get up for. It's hard enough to get up early if I do have something to get up for. I haven't gotten out of bed before 5pm for the last week.. I do feel guilty for wasting the day, but hey. That's why my friends and family call me a vampire.
It really depends on the season.
In the Spring/Summer I'm usually up between 6:30-7:30 on my own (haven't had the alarm clock on since late March)
In the Fall/Winter it shifts down about 2 hours, 8:30-9:30. I'd put my average sleep each night between 5 and 7 hours, it feels like enough most of the time.
" @TheGremp said:yeah he's a normal person alright.... when he's not working like the rest of us" 9am is way too early. It's 11:40 here, and I just woke up. Earlier, I woke up and saw that it was 9:30 and I was like "dude, no way" and fell back asleep immediately. "Finally, a normal person enters the thread. "
