Alarmed..

I don't know if this is true of many people... but it is of me, which is why I am writing about it in the first place. I hate the sound of the alarm in the morning. I bet all of you are thinking - Well, duh... who doesn't? But no, I guess what I mean to say here is that I hate the sound of the alarm sooo much that I rise almost exactly a minute before it's due to ring and turn it off. That happen to anyone? I know there are many people out there with the most famous claim of all, in this aspect that is - "I don't even need an alarm to get up." And then there is something about the biological clock here. Yes of course I've gotten up without an alarm too... but usually it's about 9:30am by then if it's not an afternoon nap. Or it's the time I wake up to switch off the alarm before it's irritating noise fills my head. And I've realized that no matter how soothing the ringtone you set (if it's the cell phone), when it turns out to be the alarm it has the deadly potential to irritate. Talk about morning blues.

Hi Jaya

Very true, i wont say that i dont need an alarm to wake up, however sometimes it has happened that i woke up like 1 to 7 minutes before the alarm goes.

Frankly speaking, if i have to wake up at 8 am i need to set my alarm for 7pm, you might think very stange. but if i keep it for 8am then there are 90% chances that i will hear it turn it off and go to sleep again.

hence i put it like an hor earlier and snooze it every 10 mintues till 8. because by that time i get so irritated of shutting up the alarm that i eventually wake up.

Its like when i was a kid my mun used to wake me up every 10 minutes. And i was like ya mom i am up now and after 10 secs i would slip back into the bed.

i Miss my mom.

PrivateMartin -> Your 1-7 min scenario is what I m talking about in this post. Many people need multiple snoozes to get up... I m not one of them... I am usually up minutes bfore the first alarm goes off and I m prudent enough to turn off the alarm never to hear it again :D

Try putting "Kausalya suprabhatham" as ur alarm tone....I bet you, you will find the difference....I experienced the same.....but this alarm just brings in an air of freshness when u get up....promise me u will try it atleast one day and will let me know if u find a difference!!!!
