In need of a human alarm clock

My blog has been boring as of late. Every time I think about posting, I'm immediately interrupted by the 289374 things that need to be done. Granted, I maybe only do .5 of those things, and so I should have time to update a blog...but you get the point.

The biggest problem in my life right now is waking up. Waking up? Don't I know that people used to wake up before the sun rose everyday and probably had the cows milked and the chickens fed long before my puny alarm has even considered going off? Don't I know how easy I have it now that I am going to school and NOT working?

Well, yes. I do. I know all of this. But it seems that no matter when I set my alarm, it doesn't go off! Or rather, it does - apparently my roommates have their own personal concert every morning - but I don't hear it. It doesn't matter that my alarm and my phone with an alarm set, sits on my PILLOW with me every night. You'd think I would hear it. You'd think that it would go off and scare the covers right off of me. But, no. False. I hear nothing.


Not even that. Silence, like in a black hole.

I don't need a bigger alarm clock. Although, I have thought about investing in one of the alarm clocks that shakes the bed, too. Have you seen those? I couldn't get the alarm that hides from you, because I don't think that would solve the problem of me not hearing it.

No, what I need is a human alarm clock. One that PUSHES me out of bed when it is time to get up. I think a rude awakening like such as my head hitting the floor is the only thing that is going to get me out of bed in the morning. So I'm taking applications.


  1. Shoot, I'd apply for that job! Maybe what you need is to go to bed earlier? Would that help with you having more sleep? Hmmmm??? What's this about not working?

  2. I shove Nathan out of bed on a daily basis. I think that my consistent pushing is finally training him to want to wake up to a "normal" alarm clock!! lol!!
