My clock wakes me up same hours every day, and it knows the difference between the days.. Wich days I'm free of school or work. The only "funny" thing about it is that every summerholiday, it needs some sort of reset :p

There actually is a way to reset your biological clock. I'm not bullshitting or anything, I saw this on TV or something many years ago.

Basically you get a torch and shine it on the back of your leg behind the knee-cap. Your body's clock works by sensing light, so if it senses alot more light than normal (i.e. from a torch) then it will reset itself to think you've just woken up. If you reset your clock at a strategic time of day, for example in the morning after a plane journey when you have had jet lag, then your digestive system and brain and motor functions will start working like they would normally do in the morning.

You'll need to eat a bit more, for the extra energy to power you for the time you should have been sleeping for, but other than that you should be perfectly normal.

I don't know why I remember these things. I seem to remember everything I hear that is completely useless.

NB. Think about it - in winter you tend to be tired more, because your body senses less light. If your body senses little light, it will think it is night time and so try to make you feel tired.

Another NB. It should work on any area of skin, but the skin at the back of your leg at the joint is particularly thin and so light can penetrate easily.

Mine pisses me off to no end.

You see, I tend to go to bed quite late on weekends, usually around 3am-4am'ish, purely because I love weekends (and hate the week--school :( ) and I want to make the most of them.

But when it comes sunday evening, I try to go to bed at a reasonable time because I get up at around 7am, and I really REALLY dont function well without much sleep, but since ive been going to bed late during the weekend, say for example, I go to bed at midnight'ish, my body WILL NOT let me sleep until at least 2am - hence, I am shattered every monday.

Lol @ Revens post. It may be a gimmick, but its worth a try! xD

This morning I woke up for school at 6:59, 1 minute before my alarm clock goes off.

I love my clock. It wakes me up with about 80% accuracy. Kinda like Kramer from Seinfeld :D

I usually wake up at 6AM, just when I have to in order to get ready for school.

That should work. There was another way scientists are devising that could use a series of lights shining on your eyes to reset your clock. Great idea for jet travelers who hate jet lag.

I know what reven is saying works. On long drives in the day I can't sleep a wink if i tried. If I ride in noisy rough car as soon as it gets dark I will sleep, regardless of wether I am sleepy or not.

Well, mine's fairly okay, but not perfect.

Usually what happens is on my days off I get up about an hour or so later than when I should when I do have school. However, on the days when i do have to get up, then I do this weird thing where I get half-awake about 2 minutes before my alarm goes off.

Weekends, however, are fine for me. I can sleep however long I need to. :p

I'm just plain lethargic. I never get up on time.

Heh, maybe I should try that Reven. :lol:
