I Don't Get Along With My Alarm Clock

    Well we have a love hate relationship.

    It absolutely loves me enough to try and get me up in the morning because it knows I have responsibilities. But I always punch the snooze button on it because it never shuts up. Should I get make it leave the house?

    I do not hear my alarm clock most of the time.

    I sleep really deep and I don't really wake in my sleep. I think have sleep apnea or something because I'm always tired.

    My alarm clock loves to ring loudly and startle me out of my peaceful sleep and warm bed. I, on the other hand, hate it.

    It hates me, I know it does,

    it wakes me up every morning before I am ready to get up. So I slap it, and without fail it will wake me up again 9 minutes later!! Devil's spawn I know it.

    My cell phone is my alarm clock. My parents are amazed at the fact that on it's lowest volume setting it wakes me up. I'm an extremely light sleeper and any slight noise disturbs me. Anyway, the song I have set on my phone as my alarm...I despise it!! I can't stand to hear...

    Me and my alarm clock share quite the love hate

    relationship. It lives as far away from my bed as I can put it, yet I sometimes wake up with it curled up beside me in bed.
