Morning Alarm: Photo A Day - 7 o'clock

Day 15 of "May Photo A Day Challenge" : 7 O'Clock

I've been trying to get the pic for today's prompt, for the last 5 days! But it just wasn't happening! You want to know why? Take a look at the picture first...

Yupp, that's my cell phone, with the morning alarm on. Do you see that red "X" icon? That's to turn the alarm off. All I need to do is drag that "X" with my thumb, from the left of the screen to the right. And then I can just roll over and go back to sleep!

That's exactly what I have been doing for the last 5 days (and all the days and weeks and months before that!)... with the result that I just couldn't manage to get this 7 o'clock picture at 7 o'clock!

Today was my last chance at this, as this post had to go live today. So I finally set TWO alarms today... one for 6:50, and one for my usual 7:00 am.

But you know how it is when you have an early morning train to catch? You're so worked up with the stress of missing your train that you barely get to sleep through the night. That's what happened with me today. I kept waking up all through the night, just to check the time on my phone and make sure I hadn't missed the alarm!

As you can see, I finally managed to get this picture! Will just have to call it an early night today, to catch up on my lost sleep! :p

This is my 15th post for 2013 May Photo A Day Challenge.

Reema Sahay said...

Ha ha ha I wanted to post this for 'morning routine' but I already started a day late and I was lazy to change the time so as to get the Alarm thing at the morning time and not any time.
Good that you finally got this pic.

Chicky a.k.a. Kaddu said...

Et tu, Shilpa? You are also advising me to cheat? :P :P :P
Hehehe! Jokes apart, I'm so completely mental about blogging, do u think there was even the remotest possibility of my changing the time on my phone and taking this picture anytime other than 7:00 am, when my alarm actually goes off! :P

Chicky a.k.a. Kaddu said...

Thanks Naina... yeah I could get only 1 shot, and before I knew it, it was already 7:01! :|

Chicky a.k.a. Kaddu said...

Thanks Jyothi! The sleepless night paid off! :P

Chicky a.k.a. Kaddu said...

@Afshan - Before 7? :O :O :O 7 baje to utha nahin jaata yahan... and u wake up even before that! Wow!
But no, I'm not traveling... I just mentioned that as an example when we have to catch an early morning train...

Chicky a.k.a. Kaddu said...

@Abhiroop - Ab didi se bhai bana liya? What did u think... bhai banane se bullying kam ho jayegi? Tch-tch! Kab sapne dekhna band karoge yaar? :D

Chicky a.k.a. Kaddu said...

Meena, I had this old Samsung RIM phone earlier (CDMA). I used to keep the alarm on vibrate in that phone. And I was actually able to wake up by the alarm! After I was forced to discard that handset, I've rarely ever managed to wake up by my alarm going off... no matter what alarm tone I set! Even the vibrate modes of these handsets don't work on me! :(

Chicky a.k.a. Kaddu said...

@Smita - :D

Chicky a.k.a. Kaddu said...

@Reema - Welcome back girl! miss_teerious was missing you! :P
And yeah... you're so right! This also makes for a morning ritual! Every morning my alarm goes off at 7:00, and every morning, I turn it off and go back to sleep. Daily ritual! And this totally escaped my mind for day 2! LOL!

Pallavi Purani said...

I always wake up before the alarm. I have a fear of alarms I guess. :(

Chicky a.k.a. Kaddu said...

Wow Pallavi... that's even better!
