People Divulge What They Really Think About When They First Wake Up
Kinga Cichewicz/Unspalsh

I am the complete opposite of morning person.

Though the older I get, the more I realize being a night owl isn't the best idea either.

Waking up is one of the biggest chores of my day.

But I do it. Gotta keep breathing...

Redditor Jackiungwanted to compare notes on what is really on our minds when the sun rises. They asked:

"What do you think about when you wake up?"

I often cry when I wake up. Because I love sleep so much. I need to work on it.

"F**k I’m awake."

"F**k is the first word my bf says when his alarm goes off 3 hours before mine. Every morning. Once he's awake he's a happy dude, no one likes waking up."

Bamalushka

I have no control...

"The me in that state of consciousness is not the normal me. It's someone else. And no matter how much I desperately need to get up to be on time, that me will sleep another 15 minutes at least. I have no control. I've had to start setting multiple earlier alarms to give that me their ransom to let normal me get up."

"That I can't wait to go back to bed."

"Alternately, how many hours until I can get back IN bed?"

MrsToneZone

"Can’t wait to take my edible and go to bed again."

"I provide a service for specific surgical cases. One morning I get a phone call waking me up, that they were rolling a patient into the operating room and where was I. Some dingus forgot to put that I would be needed on the schedule. Never gotten dressed and left so fast."

"Ahhh crap... here we go again."

"Nothing makes me mad as quickly as realizing I did not die in my sleep."

Pakushy

WTF?

"Why the hell did you think it was a good idea to stay awake until 4 am playing that stupid game? Now you have 12 long hours of work ahead, barely slept 3 hours and you're not even that good at that game. You're 38 g**dammit! What is wrong with you?"

V02D

AHHHHH!!!

"It’s like a huge scream inside my head and my heart races."

O_Beast

"Gotta love those morning panic attacks."

strwbrrybrie

"Yes and punch/kick the bed especially if you are hungover its x10."

DrunkStepmother

The Usual.

"Let me walk u through it. First I open my eyes and sit there for like 20 or 30 minutes with a dazed look on my face before actually sit up to use the bathroom. After about 30 mins of being awake I think about why God couldn't kill me in my sleep. And why I will make my existence everyone's problem after about an hour I start looking for food."

WHY?!

"I just slept for 8 hours. How is it possible that I'm more tired than before I went to sleep?"

Waking up is hard work. Especially if you have a very comfortable bed. But everyday is a new chance. So there is that.

Affordable housing. The ozone layer. Tan m&m's.

The past was full of awesomeness that we really should get back to.

It wasn't all sunshine and roses, we know that.

None of us are over here with the whole "I was born in the wrong decade" mentality—but you gotta admit a lower cost of living would be pretty dope.

Also that blue m&m's are inferior.
