Turns out that when you use your phone as an alarm clock, you are exponentially more likely to drop your phone once a day. I'm not even dropping it when I'm turning off my alarm - I'm dropping it as I'm walking away from the bedroom. Like my hands suddenly don't know how to grasp anymore.
Old school alarm clocks are neat and all, but when you wake up at different times on different days of the week - using a smart device is the best. Anyone in need of a cd playing alarm clock?
