    Oh, My

    Yep...  a former "night owl" who had to switch to daytime hours. Even though I sleep early on the weekends, when that alarm clock goes off, I just want to sleep more! Every morning, I have to drag myself out of bed, it's almost painful! :-( I can go to sleep at...

    It's a Daily Battle

    I prefer my dream world. I have vivid dreams that I always remember. They aren't always happy, but still, I like life there. Sometimes I'll wake up then go back to sleep just to go back to my dream. I get into a bad cycle where I sleep in, then I feel...

    I Hate My Alarm

    It ruins everything good for me. I'm constantly changing my alarm sound because eventually, I'll get so used to sleeping for just five more minutes that I will start to completely sleep through my alarm. I try to make my alarm a pleasant sound so that I don't hate it so much...

    Dib: I'm sorry I was late

    Morning Haters

    When I was still in senior high school, I had to set 2 alarms to wake me up. One next to me and the other in the bathroom. I would always snooze the 1st alarm off from my bed but to snooze the other one, I would have to get up. It worked ok sometimes, but there are times when I...

    I Often Want to Murder My Alarm Clock.

     Let's just say, I'm definitely not a morning person! I set my ever-annoying alarm clock every night and also make sure that my phone is turned up loud and on my dresser in case I oversleep and a friend calls to see why I'm not in class. What I really hate is when the alarm...

    I have trouble waking up because usually I'm having a dream that turns into a lucid dream(you are awake but still dreaming basically) that I'm suffocating. I try to wake myself up but I can't because in my dream I'm either under water, sticking things in my throat to make sure I...

    but for my boyfriend this is a big.. well, issue. I have to wake him up everyday, even if we wouldn't be going anywhere. (Day like this for example.) I've been awake for over an hour, it's midday here. He's still sleeping, and I know that he can sleep 'till 4pm if I won't wake...

    Nigh Owl Who Loves Sunrises

    I have had trouble waking up for the longest time. I have tried tons of stuff (3 alarms, putting the alarm far away, having coffee nearby, etc). I usually sleep well (knock on wood) during the night, but waking up is hard! Some months ago I bought an alarm that plays songs from...

    At the Weekends...

    During the week, my partner has to coax me out of bed before he leaves for work, and makes sure that I am out of bed so I do not fall asleep again. At weekends, I just don't get up practically.  I love my bed at the weekends and love my Sunday lie-in more than...

    A Daily Struggle.

    Even before I open my eyes I can feel the tail end of my dream disapearing like a jet trail. During my years of vivid dreaming I have honed my skills as a lucid dreamer. I can lucid dream, but only dreams that I have during rem. sleep, I cant make up dreams as I go. So every...
