At least if your alarm is your phone.
Especially if it doesn't vibrate as part of the alarm.
Yup. So, what was supposed to be a productive-all-nighter-with-a-nap became more of a sleep and now I am trying very hard to not feel screwed.
Can't believe I slept on my alarm. How ridiculous!
At least I can probably work during lecture today.
...I am still sleepy.
(Just looked up learned vs learnt and realised a lot of it is American English vs British English, but it's changing, possibly due to Americanising of the British language. For instance in my three university years I have not heard a single one of my English peers use 'learnt' and we're in a learning environment, so opportunities to use it have definitely occurred through the years. Ah, the evolution of language. Oh! And the lecture last night brought up the idea of a sort of Darwinian 'fitness' / natural selection of words, which I mentioned a long while back regarding "the f word" and how I thought in today's world it is a very 'fit' word that is adaptable, has many variants and often wins out over other words in its niche yet still holds power. Fun that I accidentally stumbled into a subject that many incredibly neat people have been studying!)
