So for the past 3 weeks or so I have been waking up between 5 AM and 10 AM. I’ve finally trained myself to wake up and stay up when my alarm goes off. But, it only works if it’s a certain song being blasted out of my computer speakers. I still don’t wake up to my normal alarm clock and there’s been two or three days out of the 3 or so weeks that I’ve slept in. Last night, for example, I only set my alarm clock, too lazy to setup the alarm on the computer. So this morning I apparently turned it off in my sleep and slept until about 12:30 PM.
Lesson: once you have a way you can wake up early, stick to it.
I’m pretty excited though about this whole waking up early thing. I can now set my alarm for whenever I want and I know I will wake up. That is, as long as it’s that one song on my computer.
The song is “Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing” by Sufjan Stevens, on his Songs for Christmas album. Go figure.
