Next to my bed sits a mobile, a tablet and an ipod. On most days I set one alarm and that’s fine. Today though I had to be up early, made more difficult by having a late shift yesterday, so I set a large number of alarms. I set my ipod to beep every 15 minutes of so to make sure I was awake. Yes, I have to be up bright and early today but I find that those states are mutually exclusive.
