I stayed up late

I stayed up late working on surveys for my swagbucks goal. I had surveys I completed that never credited. That is something that makes me very frustrated. It also takes me away from here. Although we cannot really watch things point by point here, I always feel like I can count on myLot to give me what I am due. Often while up late I get to chat with @marsha32 as that is when she gets computer time without needing to go places with others. One advantage to getting online early for me is getting to work on that swag bucks goal. I got a survey early this morning. I have not used the search enough to win a prize yet, but that will come. I have had a cup of coffee and a banana. It is time to start taking my meds and vitamins. When I get up early I can get in here easier as well. I guess most of the world does not arise early. I have always been an early riser, even when I was a kid. I guess lifelong habits even follow us as we age. I was up and down a lot last night and woke up less than a half hour before the alarm, so I am tired now.

I only made a third of my goal last night. I got so tired of looking at videos I nearly began to scream. I didn't do any surveys on there. Maybe today. See if they credit me.

I do lots of searches and received three search bonuses, one of which was for 25. I have the videos from the left hand side playing in the background while I am doing this. I know the others add up faster, but just work this way because I can.

@GardenGerty ...I usually run the videos muted when I am doing other things. I don't go on there very often. I use Bing for my research cause I get points toward gift cards.

@celticeagle I always forget to use Bing. I know that here are lots of places to get gift cards for searching. I do Inbox Dollars but they take so long to add up for anything.

I always get up early, but I am unable to stay up late in the night. I always spend too many hours online, it's hard to stop once I start myLotting.

I used to never stay up past ten. With the time we get up, hubby would like to see me go to bed at 9.

They tell you to wait 72 hours, then want the survey number and a screenshot saying you successfully completed. I have had the points randomly show up in the past.

Mylot is just the site for me as I cannot really handle more. If only I do not have to work I would rather stay here.

Too many sites, especially if they are similar, are hard to handle. I have a friend who does many things.

It is very easy to become involved with something online and end up still awake in the early hours.

Looks like you are just snoozing along. You must have had a late night there in Turkey.

It is not my favorite thing to do. If I do not qualify, I do not mind, often I receive a point or two for trying. I completed the whole thing, though, and so that feels like they cheated me.

@GardenGerty Yes,some times after one or two questions,they say we are sorry you are not eligible.That is okay.Sometimes they say you have one it will take 20 minutes And after 15 minutes they will say sorry and nothing will be credited.

I have had a cup of coffee and a snack as well today. I am making Crock Pot cinnamon bun french toast right now. I hope it turns out as good as I am imaging. I have been intending to make it for a few days but things have been kind of hectic around here so I haven't gotten a chance to do it. I really hate when other sites don't credit us when they are supposed to. I try to keep track of it but sometimes its too hard. I do keep track of my online shopping through mypoints though. I bought a computer for over $500 through HP website and it did not credit on mypoints. I emailed them about it and they fixed it and gave me the 2000 or so points they owed me. I need to cash out there for a gift card as I think I have gotten to the amount needed for the largest gift card amount or paypal.

I do not shop a lot, but I do like it when I get those points.I am glad that you got credited. I am waiting on cashing out there as well as I think I want to start getting some home improvement gift cards.

We do swag bucks as well. We use to do the surveys when we first joinned, but they became less and less and a waste of time for us. We get our points by watching videos and searching. We hit our daily goal every day, and some days if we don't have a lot going on we can make it to the second. Have a blessed day.

If I can get to a survey early in the morning it makes my whole day. I do videos and search, but I also like to be away from swagbucks and busy in the house. I usually miss my goal 1-3 times in a month and try to not sweat it. I also often hit the second goal

Wow, coffee and banana! I think this kind of breakfast will give me diarrhea! I have coffee and bread for breakfast most of the time, though I may take an apple, but never a banana.

I ate toast with peanut butter a little later. Banana does not give me diarrhea.

I enjoy getting up early and I also find that this time of the day is ideal for getting ahead on some sites.

When not duly rewarded for my job, i will also be just as frustrated. I have always been an early riser also so i make sure i don't stay late at night so i get enough sleep.

Since I am home during the day I will be able to nap if I choose. The points may show up later.

I was up a few hours later than normal last night reading, but I blame it on the coffee. I know better than to drink it after 5 or it keeps me up, but sometimes I drink it late anyway. Eating my breakfast right now as I myLot...a bit chilly out (30 degrees) so I am kind of glad I set my trash out yesterday instead of waiting for this morning to do it. Have a good day, I am off to wander the Hallowed Halls of myLot.

I see you keep bumping in to scammers. I try to cut coffee off before three. Our trash goes on Monday, who knows what time. I try to get it to the curb on Sunday night, so if I happen to want to sleep I can.

I am here at a time even when India is snoring. I am up around 5 and most of the world is not available to me. For Europe it is around midnight although JaBo is seen and the US for them it is the evening time but I hardly see them around. This explains why my activity is not visible to many.

Getting up early gives us a lot of time to do things. But I have always been a night owl. But my hubby is an early riser. So my life is a bit easier.

Since many mylotters are discussing sleep, I will throw in my two cents. I am a severe chronic insomniac. I developed insomnia in 1975 and have not had one normal sleep since 1975. I never know what time I will be able to go to sleep or get up the next day.. Sometimes I can not sleep all night. I have really suffered with my sleep disorder.Also, I usually can not sleep longer than two hours at a time. One of my doctors has out me on a mild cocktail to aid me with sleep. it is not perfect but I am sleeping much better and feeling so much better. I can not make any morning plans and sometimes have to cancel afternoon or evening activities because of my insomnia. For you who sleep normally and easily, be grateful. You probably take sleeping for granted and never think twice about going to sleep.
