I used to use my phone for my alarm. Now I use Cortana [substitute your voice assistant device here]. It's easy just to tell her what time I want to wake up (as opposed to thumbing through the alarm settings on the phone). And I haven't hit snooze once since I've stopped using my phone alarm.
I suppose if the power goes out I will be hosed (but if I had a traditional alarm clock this would also be true).
I wonder if they listen to me sleep
“The palest ink is better than the best memory.” - Chinese Proverb
I slept nine and a half hours last night, got out of bed at 12:00 (but was awake a bit earlier)
That's what happens when I don't set an alarm.
When I do set an alarm I often sleep through it, especially after I wake up and snooze.
Snoozing is very risky when you sleep as tight as me
And after so much of sleep I wish I could say I feel well rested
And honestly, i think the madness causes the parsers. I could never figure this parsing stuff out before - i've been at it on and off for years. Then one day, boom, I manage to implement LL(1) parsing and LALR(1) the same week. (This was what, a month, two months ago?)
A few years ago I went crazy - not related to parsing, but while it has a lot of downsides, and I don't want to downplay those, it helped me think differently and in many ways I'm smarter now because of it.
Now I don't have to think about code so much anymore. It just flows from me. Like some of my fellow crazies that speak in tongues I guess. That really helped with making these parsers. I can channel things in my head I never used to before. I can't easily explain it but the upshot is I can code things before I understand them. Once I code it, I can read the code to understand what I did.
And that comes naturally now. So bully for me.
On the other hand, it kind of screwed up my employability.
When I was growin' up, I was the smartest kid I knew. Maybe that was just because I didn't know that many kids. All I know is now I feel the opposite.
