Thought this might be a bit of fun :)

What time do you get up to go to work, school, etc?

I get up at 5.00 AM, and I'm at school by 6:30.

When I was in highschool, I woke up at around 6-630 for an 8:30 start time. My senior year of high school, i was up between 530-6 for the 8:30 bell time, and that continued for most of my college days.

I've had so many weird sleep schedules in my life though.

Now that my kids are in school, I wake between 6-7 and then am at work by 12.

Monday is 6. tuesday and wedensday are self study so I don't set an alarm, but I generally don't sleep past 9.30... thursday is 8.30 and friday is 7.

It varies depending on if it's the first night back or not, but my standard rising time is around 5:30pm. My alarm is set for 7pm in case I just needed a bit longer for some reason. It's rare that I don't wake long before that alarm goes off.

It's really nice having so much time in the evening before I leave for work (9:40pm). It means I have time to meditate, work out, get dinner ready, tidy up and still cram in 30-40 minutes of study.

Right now, we're in our busy time at work, so my alarm is set for 3:45am.

I wake up between 5 and 6:30, regardless of my obligations. Unless I set an alarm, obviously.

Usually between 5:30 and 6. Last school year the time was 6:30.

Lol. So.
When I close, I wake up at noon.
Other than that my usual 10-6 shift, I wake up at 8:30am.

I live down the block from work. So it's wonderful! Never waking up early again! I don't have kids. So when people are like how can you sleep in till noon?

Because I can sleep in till noon. :D

I was sure soul eating would be an after lunch kind of gig. I mean that's when everyone is happiest. You just ate some great big juicy burger and fries. And now you are walking back to your offi.......and there goes the soul!

Like anunita i'm retired now. When I worked for the school system up 4:30ish and on the road 5:45 usually for my 1.5 hour long drive to work with same drive home that evening. During the military lets just so it changed more often than you could count based upon shore or sea and what my rank and assignment was. At sea my norm was 16 - 18 hour days on surface ships and 12 - 14 hour days on sub. Less room to do things on the sub and was a lower rank at the time.

I am NOT a morning person, and I shower at night (AFTER I've been wrestling stinky dogs all day) so I wake up about half an hour before I have to leave for work. It takes me 15 minutes to feed, water and cuddle the ducks, then 15 minutes to get ready for work. If it's Torey's day off I make him do the ducks and I get up 15 minutes before I have to leave for work. Basically... I get up as late as I possibly can lol. Most days that means somewhere between 7.00 and 8.00am. If I have a late start or it's my day off I'll sleep in til 11 or 12pm.

For work, between 5:30 and 5:45 am. Days off, as late as I can!

It varies with the work day.

Ditto. Anywhere between 6am and 1pm, depending on what time my shift starts. Makes maintaining a steady sleeping schedule a challenge.
