Waking Up Is Hard To Do (Unless I Have To)

My body is really weird. I have a hard time waking up in the morning, but only if I have nothing scheduled early in the day. For example, I get up around noon on days when the only thing on my agenda is working the closing shift at Target. I set my alarm for 8:30am, but it doesn’t help. I turn off my alarm, I think about getting up, and then go back to sleep for four hours. When I do get up, I’m still sleepy.

On the other hand, when I had to wake up at 5am to go to the Planorama a week ago, I got up right away and was fully awake. I can get up easily when I need to wake up. If I want to get up early but don’t need to, then I won’t.

I can’t even fool myself. If I make a plan to study or run errands in the morning, I won’t wake up. But if I make a plan to meet a friend in the morning, then I’ll wake up with no problem. I need someone else relying on me in order to motivate myself. Weird, huh?
