21 thoughts everyone has when getting up ridiculously early

Mornings are difficult at the best of times. But getting up even earlier? No thank you.

AS ADULTS, WE are responsible for getting ourselves out of bed, dressed and presentable in the mornings.

Most of us have a handle on it now, but even a slight change in the routine can really throw a spanner in the works. Getting up at the crack of dawn can mean good, fun things like going on holiday, but it can also be for not-so-fun reasons.

But whether it’s for fun or not, the thought process is always the same. Unless you’re the kind of person who enjoys getting up at ridiculous o’clock. Are you even human?

9pm the night before: I should be going to bed now. In fact, I’ll brush my teeth and put on my jammies and everything. God I’m great.
