So I woke up this morning at 5:33am and shut off my alarm clock. Got up, brushed teeth, made coffee and was starting my day when I realized I was actually dreaming. I don't have an alarm clock and I was still comfy on the couch where I had fallen asleep watching hulu. Out of simple and pure curiosity, I got up (for real), found my phone, at it was 5:33am. This happens far too often to be coincidense. Many times have I awoken in a startle having drempt I was late only to find that I had forgotten to set my alarm on my phone and was indeed late, but only by a couple mins or so. Or I wake up just to have my alarm go off a minute later. However, when I try to guess the time when Im awake, Im nowhere near as accurate. It should be noted that this not the result of habit or routine. My job isn't a standard 9-5. I have varying duties that need completed on a weekly or monthly basis which I can generally schedule myself, resulting in a total lack of any semblence of a daily routine. Sometimes I get up at 6am, sometimes I sleep til noon, sometimes I work an 18 hour day and sometimes I work just a couple hours or take a few days off. Apparently, my brain is capable of calculating the precise time by some method or another, but Im not able to consciously access this function. Anyone else have similar experience and/or alternative explanation?
