Day 3: -1 snoozes

The fuck?!?

I beat my alarm by 20 minutes today. The cards were stacked against me too - I stayed up 'til about 2:30 last night. Jeeeeeeeeez. This is both awesome and frustrating. Awesome because it clearly demonstrates how advanced my brain is - apparently, I can literally do ANYTHING if I put my mind to it. Frustrating because dammit, I was gonna make graph!

The geek in me had visions of presenting a graph at the end of the study, showing a steady but imperfect decline in the number of snooze button whacks as a function of time. If this trend keeps up, it won't make for a nice graph at all - it'll make for a stupid graph that I hate, a graph that mocks me with its very existence.

I guess I'm not TOO upset, because I know it can't be real - there's no way that I trained myself overnight to wake up without an alarm clock. Clearly this is still a fluke. I'd be more peeved if the alarm had gone off just once before I woke up. That'd more closely resemble the stupid graph. Instead, I'll treat the last two days like statistical blips, and like any good scientist will do, I'll ignore the data and start over on Monday.

  1. Seriously, if you HAVE somehow managed to break the habit overnight, I'm thinking that any of us who've had to wake up to yer 20 alarms in the morning deserve a drink on you! Holly deserves.... I dunno, a hippopotamus dressed like a ladybug or something! with a bottle of fancy wine!
