I hate waking up by alarms.
For the past two mornings I've tried to do it.
The first time I:
Set it carefully for the correct time.
Put the tune on 'Melody.'
And lay it next to bed, on my dresser table.
I woke up about half-an-hour before the alarm was to go off, so I snuggled back down for another try at sleeping.
I had just gotten into that period of sleeping really lightly, I was having a weird dream about astronomy and traintracks....
When this loud, thumping, bell of an alarm went off.
It is the most annoying tune and couldn't even be classed as a 'Melody.'
I woke so suddenly I was shaking.
My view was shaking.
And when I reached out to turn off the alarm, I couldn't....
Because my hands were shaking.
I swore never again, but was slightly tempted the next night when I saw you could simply put it on 'Vibrate.'
No thumping 'melody' , just quiet vibrate.
So I did it.
Against my better judgement.
Once again I woke up earlier than I was supposed to. I almost tried to stay awake so that I would not have to go through the pain of an alarm again, even if it was only vibrate.
I fell back asleep.
Imagine: Warm, under the covers, surrounded by pillows, dreaming of a nice scene. Suddenly, that nice scene starts shaking, like there's an earthquake.
You wake up suddenly.
The stupid phone is vibrating.
You go to turn it off, but because of the sudden wake up, you're vibrating too.
I hate alarms.
Never, ever, again.
