Default Morning issues

So I'm just curious, how do you drag yourselves out of bed in the morning? I've got two alarms set, one by my bed, and the other on the opposite side of the room. First the one by my bed goes off, then the one on the opposite side of the room and I actually have to get up and shut if off. Then I plop back in bed and I'm out cold.

I'm thinking I need to get an automatic coffee maker and put it right next to my bed, then trigger the snooze on my alarm to be activated by me lifting the cup to take a drink.

I really hate mornings, always have.

I have three alarms on my phone, each 10 mins apart. I'm usually up after the first one

One alarm across the room.

Key is to not be so tired that you must crawl back in. Those are the rough mornings. Figure out how many hours your body needs and do your best to get close to that most of the week. Then weekends are catch up.

My sleep schedule has been all over the place recently. I keep saying I'm going to fix that but there aren't enough hours in the day. Guess I need to be more efficient with my time.

For years I couldn't pack everything in one day and kept pushing until I'd collapse and lose 20+ hours straight to sleep. Hopefully things calm down for you and you can get on some form of a schedule.

That hurts just thinking about it. Then maybe I could sue the coffee pot manufacturer because it makes the coffee too hot.

Problem is I'm going to school full time on top of working full time. I knew it was going to be a drain, but I decided to take it on anyways. I can guarentee on having 8AM-7PM consumed by work, then supper and other things that have to be done when I get home. Then I've got class work, need a little R&R time, etc.

I'm hoping I can just keep on trucking for the last 1.5 years I have left of my program, and then be able to relax and enjoy the benefits. Bachelors Degree at 19 with a steady well paying job sounds good to me.

My biggest thing was just getting a routine. If you go to bed at a certain time, and wake up at a certain time for long enough it becomes easy.

I've learned to deal with going to bed at 1030p and waking up at 430a
