    I Hate Getting Up Early.

    I don't like being up before the sun. Or getting up when it is freezing cold. And, knowing that there is no possibility for a nap later. Lastly, it completely prevents me from sleeping in on the few days I can sleep in. :

    I Got Up At 6am

    After a lifetime of 6am wake up time, I do it on the weekends. Terrible habit too. If I woke up at 8 then I'd check my pulse to see if I  died during sleep.
