Every time I hit that freakin button I know I'll screw up and sleep to long but that's Way after it happens, I look at that snooze button and say "hey sexy I'd tap that" and then smack it and fall back to sleep

"...The next thing I knew..." clearly you didn't know very much. If you're going to stay in bed, set a new alarm! It's a lot less annoying than repeating a 5-10 minute snooze.

Op, this exact same thing happened to me today, i showed up an hour and a half late, luckily my teacher gave me an extra hour so i could finish

95 - me too, I have night classes from 5:00 to 9:30pm and can only study at night when the house is quiet, I wake up normally at 3:00pm

My friends call it "the vampire lifestyle"...

I agree #29. At my school we are not allowed to make up any tests if the absence is not excused. But no teacher give a shit about that rule and let us make it up before or after school. And if you're lucky, during class :-)

At post secondary school. I know at mine at least only a doctors note or death of close family member is an excuse. "OVER SLEEPING IS NOT A VALID EXCUSE TO MISS A TEST/EXAM." That's a quote.

That used to happen to me quite often. After a while I realized I couldn't be trusted to close my eyes for "just five more minutes", and I started setting multiple alarms in ten minute intervals.

Ah I do the same!

Every time before I sleep I setup my iphone with 4 alarms all in 15 minutes interval.

1st one to take me out of deep sleep.
2nd to wake me up.
3rd to wake me up again lol.
4th one is a warning one that now I should either call out or should be getting ready to leave.

I just use the iHome+Sleep app on my iPad and use my dedicated wake-up songs playlist to wake up every morning. My mind gets too accustomed to repetitive alarm clock sounds, so I use a select bunch of songs on shuffle to wake up every morning. The app also lets you customize how the snooze button works, so I just set the alarm 10 minutes before I need to get up and the snooze timer on 10 minutes :P

I do what all of you do, except i have to leave it like super far away. If its even close to arms reach, or if ican roll over and somehow grab it, i wont realize that i apparently got up and snoozed it.

Alarm clock extreme free. customize it anyway you'll like and be certain you wake up. I have to get up for work at 5 am sometimes - that alarm has max one snooze and then 10 math questions I gotta solve before I can turn it off..

I do the same daily for school. I wake up at 5 a.m. and leave at 6:30, so I set an alarm every five minutes from 5 a.m. until 6:30 on my iPod. and a single alarm on my phone.

I tend to use my iPod for my alarm clock, one day I woke up late for class because my cat was sleeping on it and the sound got muffled. Luckily I didn't miss anything too important, but it was amusing, even then. Time to get a better wake-up system going.

Maybe, just maybe, you can talk to your professor and figure something out so you don't get a zero? It may be a long shot, but it doesn't hurt to try.

Obviously you're not in college. Professors don't just let you make up a test because you overslept. You would have to either had an escuse from the college or have a doctor's note.

  MrsPegg  |  45

44: you're right, I'm not in college because I graduated from college in May. From MY personal experiences, people make mistakes and sometimes professors can help you IF you ASK. In my nursing school, if you missed an exam, you don't get to take the exact test, but an essay style test worth 70 points. That way, you don't get an unfair advantage or a zero. So, sticking to the point, it NEVER hurts to ask because you never know what good could come from it.

  kmccain  |  27

Well then I'm sorry. But when I missed an exam I was SOL when it came to a make up. I talked to the professor even, and he refused to do anything about it because it was against university policy and it wouldn't have been fair to the students that actually showed up.

I accidentally set my alarm for PM on the day of my exam, had I not had my usual alarm set up an hour later I would have completely missed it. We all have those stupid moments, hopefully you won't fail because of it!
