Who or what wakes you up every morning?

My alarm clock on my cell phone normally wakes me these days. When I was a youngin' and still schooling, my Grandfather would wake me (until I was like 10). Who or what wakes you? The only thing that annoys me is I get startled by the sound of my alarm clock sometimes and I wake up with heart palpitations.

It seems that for a long time, my body has an inner alarm clock. I wake up around the same hour everyday, although I don´t need to. I´m retired and live alone. Even my dog is acostumed to eat late so she won´t bother me. As for real alarm clocks, I have hated them since I was young. When I was at my parent´s house, my father would wake me up and sort of drag me to the bathroom while I continued sleeping. The shower would wake me up. When I got married, my husband did the same. He went to work and I went to the University. I´m a night owl (I like to call myself a vampire). I´d fully awake after 12 PM. Happy posting!!!

I am a night owl, too. Once when I was about 13, I threw my alarm clock but I didn't know my Dad was in the room and I ended up hitting him with it. He picked me up from the bed and threw me out of my room so I NEVER did that again LOL I dont like alarm clocks very much because they normally startle me but well, they do wake me up so I use it. Thanks for sharing :-)

When I got married, someone gave us a very loud alarm clock. It was the time when you had to wind up the contraption and it shouted it´s tic tac. It began to sound at the bed table where we had put it. You know, that kind of sound that hammers your brain. So my husband took it to the next room so we could sleep. It still sounded a lot. He got up again and this time I did not hear it anymore and could go to sleep. Next day I went to get some breakfast, opened the fridge and there it was, ticking.. That was our first and last alarm clock.

I have 3 seperate alarms set on my cell that serve as my wake up call. All 3 are songs sang by my daughters. I find it quite pleasant to wake up to their angelic voices singing songs praising God! Good thing, too, considering that no other alarm has ever succeeded in waking me!

Well usally my phone alarm wakes me up when I need to wake up early for work or for school. If not then my ipod dock alarm wakes me up since its set a few hours later and I dont really know how to set the thing lol. So I just use that when I dont have to wake up early.

I just use my alarm clock because it's easy. I don't have an ipod. I use a creative zen player. Thanks for sharing

I set my alarm clock to music so it doesnt have that annoying buzzing sound. Wake up in a much better mood to music that i enjoy

I dont wake up if I don't set my clock loud enough. I still get startled whether it's music or not. My alarm is that typical digital beep. Thanks for sharing
