When I get up in the morning, the first thing I turn on is my radio/ cd cassette coz it's in my room and it feels nice listening to my favorite songs early in the morning while I do some stretching before going out of my room.:P but my mom turns on the TV first thing in the morning head straight to the local news channel where she could get the latest news around the city and the country. She stays there for almost half an hour and then get up and go out of the house for some fresh air...:P how about you, what do you turn on first when you get up from bed? Is it your tv or your radio? why so? do share your thoughts...:P Godbless!

I personally am like your mother. I turn the television on for the local news, traffic, and weather. It helps out during the commute to be able to get all of that information. It's important to me to have the weather forecast available because I take public transportation every day.

The first thing I turn on is the television in the morning, I will turn to the news channels and leave it on while i get myself ready for work. This will help me to keep up to date of what had happens while I was sleeping.

I don't turn on either, I love peace and quiet when I first wake up. The very first thing I turn on is the coffee maker, LOL. Gotta have my coffee. Then I turn on the computer. No tv or radio for me.

Well, I don't need to turn on my cassette on when i wake up in the morning because my roommate turns it on already. When I wake up, I'll go directly to the bathroom and, turn the lights on and take a shower. :)

I often off my handphone before I go to bed. On when I woke up first thing is to turn on the handphone, mostly to see the time, and to off the alarm if I wakes up before the alarm is triggered.

It depends. I leave my tv on all night so I don't bother with that. However, sometimes if I have time, I'll turn my computer one and check my email or something quickly before I have to go about my day. I don't have quick access to a cd player or that would probably be the first thing I turn on.

The lights, silly! I don't turn on anything else. Although the radio is my alarm clock, so that's what wakes me up, but I turn it off.

I usually turn on the television first and put it on a news channel to be somewhat aware of what's happening while I was asleep or what events are going on during that day or the following days. Then watch sports or music channels to listen to music. And after that, internet time.

The first thing I turn on is my coffee maker. Then if it's dark, I light a candle. Then some incense. Then I write in my journal. I wait awhile to turn on the radio, and listen to the news, which isn't very uplifting after all. Then I turn on my computer, and check my email. Thanks for asking.

When I get up in the morning, I turn on my computer and connect to the internet, open my mails, etc. There are so many things to read and do in the internet so I feel convenient that we have our own computer and unlimited internet connection.

Lately it's the heat and then the tv. For some reason our programmable thermostat is back at it's factory settings andit does not come on in the morning like it's supposed to until i turn it up. GRRR. No fun waking up to being cold. I have to watch the news every morning. Since i don'twork it's how i stay current with what's going on.

My computer is the first thing I turn on when I wake up in the morning.. Now, that I'm on leave from work because of my pregnancy, there's really not much at home for me to do.. So my life actually these past few days has been mostly spent infront of the computer.. From the moment I wake up until it's time once again for bed..
