 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?

I usually don't if I have nothing to wake up for, but I'm usually good about getting up for school or work (these days anyway)

#4 Posted by Animasta (14667 posts) -

9 am is early? what the fuck. I wake up at like 4:30-5:00 am every morning

#5 Posted by officervanhalen (86 posts) -

There needs to be a thread talking about how to boilerplate every poll so it doesn't devolve into nitpicking within three posts.

I used to sleep until 2pm on my days off, now I set my alarm to 9am. Don't want to waste the day.

It bothers me but I dont usually have a choice.

I have problems sleeping and usually get to sleep around 3-4am if I'm lucky.

Getting up at 9 AM is sleeping in for me.

#14 Edited by GetEveryone (4455 posts) -

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.

My son gets me up at 6:00am pretty much every morning.

The first hour sucks but having three hours in the morning before work is nice.

#17 Posted by SeanFoster (866 posts) -

I go to bed around midnight, I wake up at 7 most days, get ready and have breakfast, am out the door by 8 for my hour long walk to work.

#18 Posted by jozzy (2042 posts) -

Can't remember the last time I actually slept till 9am. That's my punishment for having 3 kids.

#19 Posted by Bollard (5390 posts) -

I wake up at 7 for school most days, and it doesn't really bother me. Also, I rarely get 8 hours of sleep anymore. Give me a chance though (nothing to get up for) and I can easily sleep in till midday.

#20 Posted by wefwefasdf (6729 posts) -

I'll sleep to about ten if I have nothing to do that day. Otherwise, I'm up around 8 or 8:30.

#21 Posted by JacDG (2117 posts) -

I have no problem getting out of bed early (get up at 6:30 am every day) but I fucking hate it.

#22 Posted by SlightConfuse (3963 posts) -

i like to wake up at 8:30 to any work i need befroe class

#23 Posted by Tophat666 (229 posts) -

I can understand why people think 9am is early, but I have to wake up for work @4am to be at work by 6.
9am is almost half my work day.

#24 Edited by Enigma777 (6069 posts) -

Not really. I usually oversleep, so I have to set up like 6 alarms. Not a morning person at all. 

#25 Posted by TheGremp (2064 posts) -

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.

#26 Posted by Fajita_Jim (1463 posts) -

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.

#27 Posted by Tally_Pants (591 posts) -

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.

#30 Posted by MauveForest (588 posts) -

I have to wake up at 5:30 2-3 times a week. The worst part is I don't keep a good sleep schedule, so I am tired pretty much all the time and have trouble sleeping sometimes. I am used to it because I have been doing it for a while now, so it isn't too bad.

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.

#32 Posted by efman (208 posts) -

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.    
#33 Posted by Daveyo520 (6674 posts) -

I just naturally get up at 7 now.

#34 Posted by SMTDante89 (2558 posts) -

Yes, and I usually have to for class or to get breakfast at college.

Only if I've got something going on, I find it tough to wake up if I've got nothing to do.

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
#37 Posted by Gabriel (4058 posts) -

Fuck I usually don't have to get up till 10 and even that is hard to pull off sometimes.

#38 Posted by ZimboDK (848 posts) -

I get up at 6:30 every morning. On the bus at 7. I don't like it, but I kinda have to if I want any money.

#39 Posted by Sessh (761 posts) -

Since I tend to only sleep for about 2-3 hours a day, I really don't care.

Also since when is 9 AM considered to be early?

#40 Posted by DuskVamp (681 posts) -

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.

#41 Posted by Nux (2320 posts) -

I wake up every day at 6 to go to work. I wish I could sleep till 9.
#42 Posted by BulletproofMonk (2719 posts) -

I very rarely get eight hours of sleep, but I still don't mind waking up early.

#43 Posted by SteamPunkJin (1286 posts) -

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.

#44 Posted by FengShuiGod (1480 posts) -

I wake up at like 1:30 PM and got to bed at 3-4 in the morning.

#45 Posted by MooseyMcMan (10814 posts) -

I never get up after 7. Never. Usually six-ish, or maybe earlier if I wake up before my alarm clock goes off.

That's fucking crazy.

But yeah, 9 isn't too early.
#47 Posted by Flabbergastrate (274 posts) -

I usually wake up between 8-9am, but on the rare days I hit bed early -- and wake up early as a result -- I find it pretty cool.

#48 Posted by Chontamenti (153 posts) -

8:00 is no problem for me.

#49 Posted by UnsolvedParadox (1863 posts) -

I can on weekdays, it's not a big deal for me. Weekends, on the other hand...
