Im hopeless at it, unless its something that i REALLY want to do.

Example: i go out on the piss - started drinking at 3pm and got home at 4:30am..i then woke up at 6:am the same morning to go surfing, something i really enjoy


Example 2: i got to bed at 1:am and have to be up at 7:30 to get ready for lectures ( takes 2 hours , 1 to shower eat etc, the other to get to my uni)


I epically fail at getting up for anything that something really fun - although being up on uni campus with mates etc is actually fun..HELP..ive missed one entire lecturers part of one of my units from oversleeping! not been to a single of his lectures!


So does anyone have any suggestions?...ive got 2 alarm clocks and will probably get an upgrade, so i have like, 17.

You place the alarm clock away from your bed...like on the other side of the room. And set it to static or a constant beeping noise or something that really annoys you.
Then open the curtains [assuming it's nice and sunny out] or turn on the lights in your room.
Then splash cold water on your face

Make your bedtime 11 o'clock with a 1/2 hour leniency. You should be able to wake up at 7 no problem. It always works. If you don't like it, shut up and don't complain about missing lecture.

I can't hear the alarm if I put it too far away, so I put it just far away enough so I have to stretch out to reach my phone.

LULZ. There's stuff to do after 11 here on weekdays. In my house, it mainly consists of watching Family Guy for an hour.

Save your alarm clock money and use it for stickynotes and booze.

1 - Write a note to yourself: Uni Today.

2 - Stick it to the inside of the door to your apartment.

3 - Lie, lie, lie to yourself. As you go to sleep, tell yourself you're surfing in the morning.

4 - ?????????

5 - PROFIT!!!

Ha! I am my own R.A. I can scream as loudly as I want and play loud music for the world to hear.

But Juno, the best alarm possible is hooking up your iPod to your speakers (assuming you have powerful speakers) and letting it blast, making use of the iPod's alarm feature. It makes you jump out of bed. Really.

For me, it doesn't matter what I do. I hide my phone so I have to find it when the alarm goes off, use Maiden songs as my alarm, anything.

I get up in a zombie like state my brain has developed EXCLUSIVELY for dealing with the threat of alarm clocks; then go back to sleep. And I barely remember even waking up!
#12
Forget the alarm clock, drink 2 large glasses of water before you go to bed (like at least a litres worth) you'll wake up early in the morning no problems. And no... not because you've pissed yourself...

Just put the alarm far from your bed so you HAVE to get up to turn it off. And put another one for 10 minutes later just in case you decide to sleep a bit more.

Use the stereo as a Alarm Clock. Insert any fairly loud Metal/Rock CD.

Seriously, nothing wakes you up like that.

have a pipeload for you right when you wake up...so you'll wake up and wake-n-bake.... always gets me up

that's what i do, it help a lot.

When you turn your alarm off, lay in your bed and loudly start counting down from 20. Get out of bed on 1. Not after 1, ON 1. If you still don't feel like waking up then I congratulate you - you have no willpower of what so ever.

Most of the above doesnt work


I cant lie to myself about going surfing, thats just not fair

Also, there is plenty of stuff to do past 11:00 so screw that...and i normally hide my phone somewhere but that hardly ever works, as in the morning my brain capacity is devoted soley to turning my alarm off and sleeping again

I even turn off the alarms that i know are going to go off in another 10 mins time

I have three alarms, also it's all about habit. But I'm hardly one to speak, I slept in and missed my only lecture today. On purpose. And it only takes me 5 mins to walk to uni.

Sounds like you need some kind of a revolution in your life.

Maybe you and your housemates could share the responsibilities of waking one another? Except for one, who is in control of all the sharing. I dunno. Just throwing that out there.

Connect one of your alarm clocks to a fully automatic bb gun so that when the clock goes off, the gun starts shooting you.

Eventually, you'll get it in your head to wake up BEFORE it starts shooting you.
