16 All Too Familiar Stages of Going To a 9am Lecture
9am lectures are arguably the worst part of being a student, but at least you’re not alone in your struggles.
1. It all starts with you initially thinking your alarm going off must be a mistake.
“It can’t be time to get up yet. It just can’t.”
2. So you snooze it. And snooze it. And snooze it again.
3. Until your anger that it keeps going off eventually forces you to just turn it off completely.
4. You then lie there with a decision to make: get up and go to your 9am…
5. Or just go back to sleep.

6. But the problem is that you’re awake now.
If you don’t get up, you’ve just tortured yourself with the snooze button for no reason.
7. So you drag yourself out of bed, regretting every life choice you’ve ever made.
8. And go to uni, secretly hoping some disaster will strike that means you have to turn back and go home.
Or at the very least, your lecturer will cancel it.
9. You arrive to your lecture extremely upset by how perky some people are at this time in the morning.
10. And feeling like you deserve some sort of medal for your efforts.
I deserve a star for turning up to this 9am lecture today, not a sticker but a real star🌟

11. The lecture’s barely started when you start checking your watch to see how long you have left.
12. And wondering if you could feasibly get away with just walking out.
13. The harder you try to concentrate, the more tired you feel.
14. And it’s not long before you come to the realisation that it’s too early for you to learn anything at this time.
I went in for my 9am lecture but why?
