Day Eleven

Yes! I have been getting up early early early for 11 days. It has become a part of me!
It has become something I really, really love and I feel so strange when I don't get up early.
Like- today.
After a really stressful two days (thursday: french presentation, math test, science test. friday: inclass essay) I thought I would give myself a break and wake up when I felt like it. I got up at 9... And I felt- HORRIBLE.
Never again will I be so strange! NINEEEEEEEEE FELT HORRID!
Yet, I am going to have to be more practical. For example: I am going skiing with my friend for four days.  There's no way I'll be able to convince her to wake up at 5am... Maybe 8... Maybe 7. . . Not 5... But, if I wake at 5am, I'll be tired by NINE at night. That might just force her head to fly off. So, I think I'll wake up at 6am when I am skiing? Is that okay? Six is still early! and when I get back home I'll go back to 5 I promise!

For example... TOMORROW. Is Christmas.
Remember that Lily? Christmas. Remember last year, you woke up at around nine? Your head hurt. Your hair was a MESS. Your braces hurt. You looked in the mirror and you looked like a swollen plum? You felt so late because your mom was already awake? And was saying WWWWWWAAAKE UP LILYYYY!!!!!!!!!!! .....

GUESSSSSS WHATTTTTTTT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



Day Four

The last two nights I have woken up before my alarm. WOOHOO!  except, well... today... I mean, last night I went to bed at 11 cause I ate dinner really late. And well, this morning I felt awful.

I got up at 5:10...

I got up...

I walked around like a zombie child...

I tried to turn ont he light but I tripped on my shoes...

I then broke my NOSE!
hhhhhhhhhha , no.

um, yes so then I tried to get up while yawning uncontrollably.
andd well I fell asleep.

From 6 until 7.


But it's okay because I needed the sleep and I'll get up at 5 tomorrow


(The REAL Day Two)

Time in bed: 10:00pm
Time woke up: 5:10am
Time now: 8:52pm

That's right people-- I did it, again. Woohyywhoohaa! Yet, I can't say it was smooth. 

For one, I woke up at 5:10. Not that it matters, just saying... Two, my mom was awaken because I decided to use my cow clock today. See, this cow clock again is REALLY ALARMING. No way of sleeping past that baby. It also happens to be really hard to turn off in the dark. At 5:10 it went, MOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
and I got up ina  matter of milliseconds, then I fumbled with it for a while while it accumulated in noise going, MOO mOOOOO mOOOOO MOOO MOOO MOO MOO MOO!!!!! MOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That would be when my mom on the other side of the house woke up. I then shut it off.

I guess this calls for a little convinience light next to my head so I can trun off the cow in the early morning. wink wink daddy;) no, maybe, yes? Yes, no, maybe so? 

I'll take that as a maybe. :) 


Day Two- I did it.

Why hello there!
5 minutes ago I woke up.
I feel amazing!
It's 5:05 am!

I am going to go brush my teeth, have some breakfast and finish some homework.
THEN I will use my time doing things I enjoy!

I will let you know how I'm feeling later after the fatigue sets in!

:]Let's see if I don't fall asleep accidentally... 


DAY ONE- 5am 30 Day Challenge

Time up: 8:10 am 
Time in bed- WAIT WHAT?!


Yes, yes randomfeet believers. I am a failure. 
An absolute failure. 

Please explain yourself gurrl...
Yes, yes alright, well you see... I set my alarm last night for 5:00am. I put the volume on an extremely obnoxiously loud volume and stuck it about a foot away from my ear. I closed my eyes and fell asleep. I slept. and slept. And slept, and well I slept a lot and SLEPT THROUGH MY ALARM. 

I was so deep in sleep that not only did I not hear the alarm, but when my mother was woken up with a start and came to the living room to shut it off (By the way I slept on the couch to make sure my bed wasn't to comfortable to leave in the morning.) she began to shake me and I supposedly got up and said, ohkayyy mommmm stooooppp.. 

I ABSOLUTELY did NOT do that. 

I was sleep talking. 

So while my mom turned off the alarm and attempted to sleep again but had difficulty, I ignorantly kept on sleeping until 6:30 when I heard my dad's big slippers clanking in the living room. 

Wonder how his slippers woke me when my alarm didn't... 

At 6:30 I realized it wasn't 5 o'clock and got very angry at my phone that lay near my head. I wondered what the heck happened and why it didn't ring. And then somewhere in my rapid thoughts I fell asleep again. And then woke up twenty minutes later than I usually do for school.

To make a story short, I really failed. 

Even on the way to school running late I flipped off my skooter, sending my back pack flying over my head and off my back, and ripping my pants ripped on the sidewalk. I had to run up to the third floor in this condition but I did it magically in about a minute and got there exactly on time. 

That part of me was less failure-like.

The rest remains the epitome of well, -- me.  
Big dreams, big words, big ideas, and then well you see... I CAN'T CONTROL WHETHER I CAN WAKE UP OR NOT! 

So-- hard.

So, day one was an utter failure but I won't let it get to my heart. I have two options for tomorrow. And I have new unfortunate factors. One, my mom doesn't want to be woken up again. And two, I evidently need a new alarm clock system other than my cell phone.

So here are the options.

1) Put my phone on vibrate and put it in my hand or right next to my ear. That will probably make me feel tingly and wake me up.


2) Crank out the mooing alarm clock. See, this alarm clock is so ALARMING that I will wake up without a doubt and if it is close enough to my face I can turn it off before my mom wakes up.

So, what do you say?
What should I do fellers? 
Let me know. 

The challenge continues. It only has gotten slightly more challenging because I can't even get the first thing down. Actually GETTING UP.

be ready. 

Tomorrow will work.



Once upon a time there was a girl named Lily who forgot about time. Her forgetful nature started after falling on her face one lazy afternoon. The impact impaired her memory and sense of time and just like that, two months fell out of the sky without a thought! And when we don't think we don't blog. So, that's my excuse.

It has been two months since I've posted. That's coooky. But who cares? I have a surprise! 

Tomorrow is the first day of THE 30 DAY CHALLANGE.

The 30 day challenge?!

For 30 days I will wake at 5am in an attempt to be more productive in my life's daily routine. No longer will I permit days of fatigue and lasyness. OH NO! I will now commence a journey into a life of one who rises early and get's the perfect amount of sleep based on what the body is telling me I need.

--Now hold up-- Y'all gotta be wondering how that makes any sense. Basically I am saying, "I WILL WAKE UP AT 5AM for 30 days and magically feel well rested because I wake up early and don't sleep!"

But I have been inspired by Steve Pavlina 's blog about self improvement. His idea encircles the theory that the body knows when it should sleep if everyday we wake at the same time. So, let's say I wake up at 8 am every morning, I can know that I am sleeping a good amount because when 10 pm comes around I feel tired and I go to bed. But the next day I may not feel tired until 12 am, yet that is okay. The idea is that the body knows when it should sleep. Read his post about it it's great!

So yes. 
Now the question lies as to why 5 am?

The answer lies as to, I like to wake up early. I don't wake up early, but when I do I feel really, really good. I feel ahead of the game and I feel like I have a lot of time. If I woke up at 6am every morning, I wouldn't feel much different simply because it is only one hour earlier than usual for school, but 5 am I think is the perfect challenge and that is the number the guy Steve did in his experiment. 

Want to join me?
Everyday I will write about how weird I feel waking up so early, and you can post your feelings too. Try it! Think about it, if you woke up early you may have the opportunity to do things you often don't have time to do like... Eat breakfast (me), wash your hair (me), read (me), write (me), create (me), paint (me), draw (me), speak a different language (me). I never have time because after school I have homework and I am exhausted. But if I start the day earlier I will have that morning rush of energy to do the things I love and care about.....

SO, The day commences tomorrow at 5am.
Everyday I will write the time I woke up exactly. (Should be around 5:00 - 5:10) And the time I went to bed. ALSO anything productive I did in the morning.

I can do it. 


If so, send a picture of yourself with a cut out mustache on your face to lilzkoool@gmail.com and join the 30 day challenge team. Together we can wake up early, dun dun duuuuuuuuuunnnnnnnnnn.
