My Time Machine...

How many of you believe there is a clock ticking within you, inside your skull, somewhere in the cerebrum?
Well, I do!!!
All of us have our own sleeping trends. As for me, I used to be an early riser when I was in school. There was no attendence in college and I was not bothered about the 8 AM tutorials either, so waking up post 9 became a routine and thats how I am still. And obviously, no morning alarms!
Of course, there are exceptions. You would not want to miss a Federer-Nadal clash that happens at 5 in the morning. You might want to leave for a team outing at 6 the next day.
On each of those 'exception' days, I set my alarm before going to bed. Not a single day have I woken up to switch off the alarm. I always end up waking up a few minutes before my nokia 6020 starts ringing!!!
May be you know for sure that you will have to wake up. Thats your last thought before sleep. May be when you set the alarm in your cell phone, you start off your 'brain clock' unknowingly. I do not know if there is any science here. But all I know is I have a 100% strike rate at this and this makes me feel that my brain too has 'somethin' in it!
