Masae gave the idea for this poll, but I changed it around a bit. When do you normally wake up? I have friends that work graveyard shifts (like night nurses), so their sleeping schedule rotates like half the week. Must be tough...

I wonder how many engineers there are

It used to be 11 - 12. I couldn’t imagine waking up any earlier than 9, unless we needed to leave early for a vacation or something, and even then I needed my best friend to stay over to wake me up, cause alarms had no affect.

Now? I’m up by 6 - 7 every morning. Slight lifestyle changes lead to that, and now I’m disappointed if I sleep in past 8. It’s weird how much time changes a person.

Usually wake up around 7, however I've been trying (And failing) to wake up and hour or two earlier by to get to sleep around 9:30, 10.

If I didn't have a job, my wake-up time will be constantly moving later and later each day. So during the weekends I will wake up around 13.

Early morning. It was late morning or afternoon back when I was a student, but that was... quite some time ago now, I guess. I usually wake up around 6 nowadays.

If I don't have to work, I usually wake up at around 6 or 7 o'clock every morning. My job has me so programmed that I could stay up late the night before and my eyes would still fly open at the same time. 😢

Early morning around 7:30 am whether i setup alarm or not i wake up... My alarm actually usually goes often 15-20 minutes after i already woke up. On weekends too just too used to waking up at this time i can't sleep in... I am software engineer but i work with market stuff, so must be at work before 9:30 in case any emergency during trading hours...

It's good that you use "Early morning" and "Late morning" as time separation rather than hour mmm...
Some people consider 9 am or even 8 am as late morning, while in other place it's early mmm...
I personally wake up pretty early before 5am almost everyday because at 6 am the day already started and by 6.30 the traffic already pretty bananas mmm...

In the summer I’m usually up around 7:00 so I can get a pre-work walk in without having to wear sunscreen, or if I’m on a long hike I’ll get up as early as 5:00. Not much inspiration to get up early in the winter in the cold darkness 🤷♀️

It should be noted that many no doubt wake up regularly at certain times …purely due to alarm clocks.
I.e. wake up at times that completely conflict with their biological clock, which has various negative consequences for ones mental and physical health, energy levels, mood etc.

This is an issue that has been largely ignored, and even now is mostly unknown and/or ignored, despite having massive consequences for societal (and individual) health, quality of life, as well as things like productivity. (unnecessarily and fully avoidably having a large portion of the workforce, be sluggish zombies who do not bring out their full energy, strength, focus, or intellect to the job…)
There is a general notion that people should wake up early. There is no rational basis for that, nor the notion that everyone should wake up and sleep, at the same time. (but plenty of reason for favouring some diversity, in waking times)
It is especially bad, that kids are forced to fight their biological clocks, making them miserable, making them get far lower grades, increasing the amount of bullying, as well as hampering their development, in a critical and crucial time of their development.
Even before the science confirmed this, they still should have listened to the misery of so many kids, at having to wake up so early, and changed the school starting times …but now that there is such massive and incontrovertible science, and they still do nothing…

As for me?
I cannot answer the poll, as I have Irregular sleep–wake rhythm disorder, and hence have no such thing as a "usual" or particularly predictable time, that I wake up.
A very severe and debilitating disorder.

Waking up early/late (and not everyone can force themselves to wake up at "societally accepted" times) is fine.
Even though you will suffer negative consequences, because society demands you be awake at different times, you can still manage to do most things, by finding jobs/classes/whatever at "abnormal" (not sanctioned by society) times.
People whose biological clocks are early/late (compared to what society demands) and cannot force themselves to societally accepted times (with severe consequences, as mentioned above), are classified being disabled. As having circadian rhythm disorders …even though the only problem, is one imposed on them, and people with a "normal" rhythm, would be just as disabled, if society demanded different waking times.

Even non-24-hour sleep–wake disorder is a breeze, in comparison. Sure, such a person cannot go to anything that demands you come at a regular time, all the time, as the time they are awake steadily shifts …but the shift is regular and predictable, so they can plan and schedule things, perfectly well. (not being able to keep regular times, I'd agree that this is a genuine disability)

…but with Irregular sleep–wake rhythm disorder?
You never know when you'll be awake, and when you'll sleep. Depending on severity, you can talk about probabilities of when you'll be awake or asleep, but…

Jobs? Forget it!
Classes? Yeah right!
Club meetings or the like? Well, if they're fine with very sporadic attendance, you can attend on the (perhaps quite rare) occasions when you are able to.
Schedule? Hell no!
Being able to set dates to do something or meet someone? Eh… as I say, one can maybe talk of possibilities/probabilities.
Routines? How would one have those? What time/event/action would they be anchored to?

The whole emoji-thing is pretty new, with varying levels of support, depending on the program, database, OS, browser etc, so… Hell, you should be happy you don't just get a bunch of rectangles.

Need to get up early in the morning for work, usually around 5:45 am. When I don't have work and don't have an alarm set, then around 9 pm.
