I am deprived of it,during the daytime..
At night im staring at the same thing you are currently staring at..
4:00 a.m.- 8:00 a.m : I probably get the best of it.
At 8.15 a.m- its time for the Human alarm to start buzzing (my mom)
At 8.20 my half shut eyes try searching for the wall clock…almost in vain.
At 8.30 i remember,which side of the bed i am on (if its the right, then we have a table clock as well- damn and i had to stretch my eyes as far as the wall- so what if that is on the right as well!)
By 8.40- all hell breaks loose..Dad, Mom in the room, or grandma from the kitchen start the entire loud lecture routine. (depends, either one of them starts it or the other does it later Or they all scream one after the other, sometimes my grandpa decides to join the party as well..)
You don’t have to be a genius to guess what im talking about- Sleep! Somehow i seem to be deprived of it these days (or i am depriving myself)
6 days of college, most of the classes starting from 9.45 onwards seem to have become a pain (school in this case..seems far away i don’t know how i woke up by 7.30 am!!)
My mom had smart ideas to wake me up, she always tries something different..innovative i must say. For me, as they say at home- ‘even if elephants are made to walk over her- she won’t wake up.’
 When my brother was a baby (technically he should still be called baby, but height, change in voice and maturity have taken over), mom used to leave him early in the morning between my sis and me, on our bed..he would pull the pillows, make noise…all those baby sounds or as he grew up while he learnt how to speak, she would teach him how to wake us up..and he would copy her words. My poor sister always got out of bed, i wouldn’t budge..and then the final action, pick lil bro up, make him sit on my back -while am still sleeping (basically he would just jump on me, pretending that im his pet horse)
Mom and Dad did this, when they knew we were half asleep but too lazy to get out of bed. They would enter the room and start gossiping about Us- commenting on everything right from our books,clothes,schedule,our Friends, our facial expressions, any random gossip..(my dad particularly targets my nose)
Apart from that- the water throwing routine and screaming in the ear routine has been done.Also my brother played his computer games in the morning- with loud sounds of bullets and bikes, wwe wrestlers and the like – enough for me to scream in my sleep.
Its funny, i don’t feel sleepy when i should be sleeping and all my horrible yawns seem to occur when i should be focusing. Like now, i should go off to sleep, i want to go off to sleep too- but I just don’t feel like it.
I wish i could follow atleast some of the health tips that my dad loves passing on..Health is wealth being his fav dialogue. (not only it would make him happy, but would also bring some balance in my disbalanced life!)
7:00 a.m-i hope to see you soon and not sleep through you.

Come what may I hv to wake up at 5am for my dose and I feel deprived of my darling sleep.Hey the curls are gone now so what\’s the use of pictures and style remains basically the same, just trim.

  5. I so know !! I mean I don\’t like going to bed… staying awake till 3, 4 in morning…tierd but awake…sleepy but not really sleepy…! The problem lies in getting up… I hate to get up too… It used to the main reason of arugments between dad n me on sunday mornings back home..(big time) !! I have never in my life woke up with alarm clock…never ! doesnt work for me ! I think dying would be like my sleeping… Just that I get up from sleeping…its short term dying (crazyyy)!!that reminds me …. yawnzzz!! *achoo*

We used to have them. And an announcement of tiem which always used to be 30 mins more than actual… but now I have to put alarm on my mobile as well as put an ontimer on TV with the channel set on MTV with significatn amount of volume to make sure I get up on time and reach office… at least then I was able to blame someone for waking me up, now its all onn me…Sundays are like heaven… sleep till 12, cook and lunch at 3 and laize the whole day… only kill joice is the house chores, washing, cleaning 😦

  15. Hey Supriya, Seems like you did not learn the lesson your parents were trying to teach. Home is not the place to sleep. Collge is the correct place to sleep – that is why lectures are hour long affairs with professors going out of the way to make you comfortable by droning in the correct volume and not changing the pitch a lot. Have you ever taken a look at your books – is the presentation as interesting as a comic; is there some romance or interesting incident mentioned anywhere; No…they are sleeping aids. Hope you are able to learn the lesson soon :)Vijay

  16. ya… I would adopt my 2nd child….! Not first…but second… coz of various crappy mind sets of ppl ..wanna prove it all wrong to them!! but I think there are so many poor, cute, equally innocent as we were, and totally no fault of their\’s children out there… who needs to be adopted…!ok..in short will tell you something… Me went to a fostercare once, lotsa cute babies there, lifted one up, tiny 3-4 months, pink cotton ball-ish, when was bending down to put him back in the crib just wouldn\’t leave my shirt, cluthed on to it, tried hard, took few mintues, and help of matrons to get outta that grip, man I rushed out and was in tears… the baby had not been lifted up, wanted nothing but just a loving touch… poor thing ! even though they are cared for in foster homes(kinda).. nobody has time to spend with each of them…! it shudders me to think how it must be… well me nd di have a few more plans abt the same issue(implement when we are all well settled in life personally…money, job etc)..but want go on talking abt myself on ur space… so am outta here.

  17. this is the usual scene in my room too.but i make up in the class.even rite infront of teacher.no probs.she saw me but couldn\’t help it.i know its not good but can\’t help.n\’ durin seminar we sat at the bak and my teacher told was it not cosy over there???? great! tat was the last thing to hear.ok bye

  18. to wake me up..the parental units send in my brother (when hes down) who brings some fabulous smelling food and holds it under my nose…and the bloody fumes get to me despite the slumber!!@#%@#….:(oh and he does the gossip thing too…thankfully, the freek isnt here all the year through..

  19. Sleep!! I dont know why, on Sundays i get up little sooner than most of the weekdays. I never had probs with sleep and if i sleep little over 7 or 7.30 my mom and dad would make sure that no one disturbs me. Its such a rare occassion ;)My sister is different. She needs the room to be dark and wont buldge before 9 or 10. I used to do everything – water, TV, my streo, pillows over her and throw punches on her while she is sleeping 🙂 Yeah im the wicked one in the family 🙂
