Type: alarm - person - natural

Specific Method: I use a wall-plugged alarm clock, no music just straight up alarm

Snooze Frequency: none - once - multiple

Other Important Notes: If I remember to charge my phone, I unplug it right away

I set the alarm with no music just the annoying beep. Usually I naturally wake up 5 minutes before my alarm for some reason though.

I put about 5 alarms on my phones, all spread out the hour before I need to actually get up.

Usually a song with a good intro, nice waking feel.

Sometimes I use the spawn music from MW3 lol.

Alarm on my phone, 30 mins before I'm supposed to get up. I use the "Knightrider" theme song. When I'm actually meant to wake, my iPod plays "Beautiful Morning" by the Rascals. Of course, it's on the other side of the room so I'm forced to wake up to turn it off.

I also wake up nude.

Type: Alarm

Specific Method: Wall-plugged alarm, just the annoying as hell buzzing/beeping noise.

Snooze Frequency: Depends how tired I am/if I have a spare block first thing. If I have my English Literature class first thing (which I really love and there's lots of good looking girls in there) then I'm up right away and will have time to make breakfast and coffee. When I have my spare or History first or something I'll usually slam the snooze button until the last possible chance then sprint my way through my morning routine and to my bus stop.

Other Important Notes: I'm starting to think that I either a) am an actual isomniac or B) spend too much time online watching shows or messing around on forums such as this until 1-3am and don't get much sleep, I now have a perpetually tired look and while it sort of suits my style, I'd rather not look baked most of the time (minus the red eyes) because people give me weird looks (because I hang out with total stoners all the time). I also charge my phone with my laptop every night and sometimes use that Sleep Cycles app, but I've stopped recently because it's sort of bad realizing how little sleep I get.

I use my cell phone as my alarm. I'm super paranoid that using a wall-powered alarm is just begging for a power failure.

Cell phone works, have never been late for work because of oversleeping.

Combination of crying babies and/or alarm clock (radio and traditional plugged in to wall).

Never snooze. If I'm still tired (since having babies this is fairly constant now) I simply stumble around bumping in to things until I'm alert enough to find coffee. No babies have been dropped as yet.

My stereo has an alarm that wakes me up. Right now I listen to my angry morning rap music, get up right away and go directly to the gym. My stereo is way too loud to snooze lol

Plug in alarm with a loud annoying beep, an ipod alarm set for a couple minutes after just on the off chance there's a power outage. Whether I snooze depends on how much of a hurry I'm in.

I either get woken up by huskies, insane with the idea that I'll take them for a walk...

Or by a certain topless vagrant wanting special attention...

I set the alarm for half an hour before I need to wake up, and hit snooze repeatedly until about 10 minutes after I should have woken up. I often end up being a few minutes late to wherever it was I needed to go.

Usual morning routine starts off by waking up to my phone alarm clock in a hotel room, next to a naked woman. Snort a rail, knock back a glass of scotch and cab it to the airport. Usually come on CDC during my cab ride to the airport.

Alarm, ALWAYS set on music. The buzzer is suppose to annoy you into waking up. It works to well. I want to murder the first person I see after the buzz.

On a typical day, I don't bother with an alarm, I just get up when I am finished sleeping. I work from home, so the commute is easy.

On days where I need to wake up by a specific time I use an alarm, set on the buzzer.

I just use my cell as an alarm. I roll over, shut it off and get up.

I never really use snooze, the extra 5 minutes doesn't really do anything for me

Plug in alarm set to buzzer. Loudest setting it has. Battery backup in the alarm clock so no worries about power outages.

IF I was up late Ill hit snooze a few times and contemplate missing breakfast for 20 more minutes. If I went to bed on time Im up a few minutes before the buzzer.

Up to a few years ago I could get up, shower, eat breakfast and get out to the car while almost sleep walking. Id not fully wake up till I got in and sat down. Id actually sometimes do it and not realize it was the weekend until I got in the car. I cant do that anymore, Now Im fully awake the moment the alarm goes off.

P.S. Morning wood. Every single day of my life since I was 13.

It doesn't happen very often, more like option 1: 99% of the time, option 2: 1%, maybe even less...

Ha ha! Same here, most of the time it gets trampled by rabid huskies....
