Your Turn

Do you or have you ever had a streak of nights where you suddenly woke up and looked at the clock and it was the same time three or four nights in a row. It has happened to me this week three straight nights varying by a minute one way or the other. I am wondering if this has happened to any of you.

You know what they say about cliffhangers....

Geeljire said...

Yeah. You hit a rhythm. Totally normal.

Florin said...

Only on the weekends when my body thinks it should get up and go to work or if I set my alarm later in the morning.

Brayson87 said...

Oh that's nothing, just the time you're most likely to die.

Carissa A. Thrush said...

yes! I looked at the clock at 3:33 in the afternoon and night every single day for about two months. It was weird haha

Cold blooded

rosie riveter said...

I happen to look at the clock often times when it's 12:13,
both am & pm, and it happens all the time.

Digitalis said...

Yes. Drives me crazy, because after 27 years of the same alarm time, I NEVER wake up when I'm supposed to. Only when I'm not.

sandybrook said...

I usually wake up at 2am and 4am every night maybe because my sub conscious hears my watch do it's on the hour beeping.

filmfanb said...

normally when I dont drink for a few days

MontanaMarriott said...

OMG about 6 months ago for 2-3 weeks I kept waking up at 1:11am it was banana's then nada, it just stopped.

Dena said...

Lol, @Brayson!

I used to always wake up at 11:06pm, and I assumed it had something to do with something supernatural. I was like 12.

katie said...

ALIENS LOL

cebii said...

I woke up at 5:54 am for months and months about 15 years ago.

No One said...

Everyday, I look at the clock when it's 9:11. It drives me crazy.

one_eyed_bob said...

Yup, 3:30 am when the booze is out of the system

AndrewBW said...

Years ago I went a period of about three months where I woke up without an alarm within the same five or ten minute block every day. Then one day it just stopped. It was very weird. That's never happened to me before or since.

Confirmation bias

Your mind is trying to find 'order in the chaos'

Its amazing what the pituitary gland can do

karl said...

Yes, it's been going on for 18 months or so with me. Started after I got out of the ER where there are too many beeping machines and crazies to get proper sleep. Haven't had a good night since.

David Howes said...

What puzzles me is I'll wake up in the middle of the night, look at the time, then go back to sleep.

A while later, I suddenly wake up feeling rested, look at the time again, and see that I only slept another +/-5 minutes!

Brayson87 said...

Thanks @Dena!

But seriously, is it about four hours after you fall asleep? People used to have a first sleep and second sleep during the evening hours, with a gap in between. Electric lighting messed all that up. It was a time for reflection, prayer, and screwing.

Hopefully "I Got You Babe" wasn't playing at the time.

shakey said...

Either 3:15am or 4:21am. And it happens in streaks for each.

Kno Won Uno said...

Me too.

Spider Rico said...

Few weeks ago I was waking up at 4:18 on the dot 4 times in a row. Weird. Jung talks about it in his book, "Dreams, Memories, and Reflections" if you wan to delve.

Pilot Gal said...

Yep - happens to me all the time. 2:31am. Goes in spurts - sometimes, it occurs every single night for weeks, then stops. Then, it starts up again out of the blue.

Samantha Willow said...

Yes, and it's happening now. I wake up every morning around 3-4, fixate on the interwebz for an hour or two then fall back asleep. And this isn't the first time.

Disparaging Remark said...

Yeah, but it's usually because I ate too late at night and I wake up to poop.

nicksauntie said...

@Brayson - that made me laugh too!

When I was younger, after seeing the Amityville Horror, I used to wake up at 3:15 every morning. It would scare me so badly I couldn't get back to sleep...

Taj said...

Yes.
I've also noticed that everyone I look at a clock the time always has the number 33 in it in some form. (i.e., 5:33, 3:33, 3:30, etc.) Weird.

Taj said...

*everytime

tinydancer61 said...

Yes! For a long time, I'd wake up about midnight-on the dot! It was crazy how consistent it was! Then, I'd lay there, thinking, I have plenty of time to get back to sleep but I couldn't! I'd finally doze off around 5:00 a.m. and then the alarm would go off! Maddening!

Wee S said...

My dad passed away recently, around 2.25am on a Sunday. Ever since, I've either found myself awake at that time; or been awake and just looked at the clock at that minute.

WickedBee said...

Yep. I'll go for long streaks of waking at 3:33am which is supposedly "the witching hour".

MichiganMama59 said...

Maybe it is someone one step beyond trying to send a sign.

I had a two or three month incident where 9-11 was everywhere: clocks, addresses, the license plate on the car in front of me. It all became apparent a few months later.

trufflepig said...

I don't think I've ever woken up at exactly the same time several nights in a row, but a few weeks ago, I went through a phase where I'd wake up after almost exactly 3 hours of sleep every night.

Spitbite said...

@Former CNN Anchor Candy Crowley, what do you get when you cross a joke with a rhetorical question?

KZmi35 said...

Been waking up at about 5am every morning this week too. Then I can't get back to sleep before my 6:45am alarm time. It has sucked.

Itttt said...

ABSOLUTELY, enty. This happens to me frequently enough, where I will wake up and it will be within a minute or two of the same time nightly for 2, 3, 4+ nights in a row.

Had a streak of 3:33's about a month or so ago.

jw11 said...

This happened to me for a period of my life after a spiritual expansion that left me a little ungrounded. 4:15am every single night. It stopped after about a year. Ended up being a very positive era of my life but it didn’t feel like it then.

artensoll said...

Jail time. In the UK anyway.

Cee Kay said...

I mean, I usually see 5:30 when I wake up to pee, but I don't think that's quite what you're saying, Enty...

Chenin Blanc said...

Yes! Sit up in bed, put your feet on the floor, and meditate for evaluate you truly want. Your true self.

GossipMaven said...

I see 9-11 all the time too. It goes in stretches a couple months I notice it all the time, everywhere. What was apparent a few months later?

GossipMaven said...

Same

When I was a kid, I lived on a dead end street, so we never got much traffic. For about a week when I was about 12, at exactly 2:03 I would wake up and hear a motorcycle sound like it was idling outside my house. It would sit there for a few minutes then leave. It literally happened every night for a week. Literally scared the shit out of me because my dad was a state policeman so I was terrified that it was some gang member scoping out my house because he busted them or something. Now that I'm older, I don't think it was that serious and I think that maybe there was a motorcycle that went by one night, so every night afterwords my brain would do the motorcycle in my head and I would wake up. It was the weirdest thing. Well, that's at least what I tell myself because the alternative is that we almost were killed? lol

Raging Bunnies said...

Currently even.

Michelle Broxton-Haugh said...

I wake at 7.46am every single day, my alarm is set for 8am.

zerooptions said...

3:01am, no reason, it just happens occasionally
