I came to realize something the other day when I got the chance to sleep in due to my 12-9 working schedule: I’m always the first one up in my room. You may ask, “How did it take you that long to figure that one out?” And the answer is simple. For Christmas, my parents gave me about 6 alarms to give to my roommates because for a while, I was waking everyone up in the morning…even on the days that I was supposed to be able to sleep in, I woke up to wake my roommates up so they wouldn’t miss work. So first off, thanks Mom and Dad! I am no longer the designated alarm clock (except for Aimee who I wake up every morning).
Anyways, on the day that I got to sleep in, I kept on waking up in a panic to turn off my alarm clock because I heard it go off over and over again. Although, it wasn’t my alarm clock…it was the 6 other identical alarm clocks that had been dispersed to my multitude of roommates. It was then that I realized that we all have the exact same alarm. I’m just used to waking up first, so I’ve never heard all of theirs go off!
