I'm alive and confused

I accidentally left my phone on silent last night-- that part, I understand.

But why didn't I wake up to my alarm? Why was it 10:30 before I woke up after 5 minutes of my father pounding on my door?

Option a) My alarm didn't go off.
Rebuttal) It goes off every morning. I didn't touch the volume or any other aspect.

Option b) I turned it off.
Rebuttal) Highly unlikely, as one has to be quite skilled, or say, awake, to find the little tiny off button.

Option c) I slept through it
Rebuttal) Hours of loud beeeep beeeep beeeep? Doubtful

Option d) Aliens.
Rebuttal) none.

I'm leaning toward c. If it took five minutes of pounding on the door to wake you up, maybe the alarm didn't do it (and it might have an automatic shutoff after X minutes or something)

But if so, you must have been awfully exhausted. Are you doing ok on sleep these days?

Well, my door was shut, it didn't seem very loud. Still likely and possible, but I doubt I would have slept through 20+ minutes of alarm beepage.

yes, very very tired. and no.

I'm exhausted from just one-and-a-half jobs, and you've got school on top of that. Get some sleep, girl. You don't have to be superwoman *all* the time.

I sympathize with having superMAN. Someone told me at work: "Stop trying to be heroic."

Why was your father pounding on your door?

Agreed on the c thing. I've been known to sleep through my cell phone alarm but that's because after 30 minutes it shuts off (or 30 minutes of hitting snooze every 5 minutes). Hence setting it to go off 37 minutes after the first alarm as a backup.

I set them both for the same time, but my cell was on silent. I have never ever slept through the crazy beeping of my alarm clock though. And its LOUD.

Find an old alarm clock from the 50s/60s/70s. You won't sleep through 90 minutes of BUZZZZZZZZZZZZZ at 80Db
