    Whenever I hear any phone alarm I automatically

    wince because it reminds me of waking up so I got an actual clock alarm that is so loud it sounds like a freaking school bell so I have to get up before I die because my family can hear it throughout the house and will kill me if I don't shut it off :/

    This morning I downloaded a new alarm clock app.

    (I forgot what it was called.) So, I woke up and all I could hear was the most ANNOYING alarm noise, and I COULD NOT TURN DOWN THE VOLUME! It set itself on full volume plus vibration. It kept giving me notifications saying "Please wake up." I'll stick to Sleep Cycle for now.

    I always wake up before they are set to go off.

    I can't go back to sleep knowing the alarm will be ringing soon. Ugh Normally I let myself wake up naturally, but I have to head out to the city this morning. I hate disruptions in my routine. I get overwhelmed.
