7:00 - to 7:59. The old saying, "early to bed, early to rise, makes you healthier, wealthier, and wise." The body is meant to sleep at night. Unfortunately, I don't do it all the time.

2:30am most every weekday. Weekends I may luxuriate is sleeping into 5am, but usually up by 4:30am.
Yes I know I am sick sick sick laughing out loud.

First alarm clock: 6:50am

Its generally the second clock that prompts me to get up.

Between 7:00 and 7:15. My SO's alarm usually starts going off around 6:45, and I'm often half awake already by then, but I don't fully wake up or get up until a little after 7:00. My alarm goes off at 7:15, though I have often turned it off by then.

Cell phone alarm is set to 5:58 am, but I usually use snooze for another 10-20 minutes. It doesn't really matter much when I get to work.

7am if I need to be at work for 8am, 7:30am if I need to be at work for 9am. My commute is reasonably short this year smile

Similar to my old job. I don't know how much you know about being an underwriter, but until recently I was a Junior Engineering Underwriter. Now I am an Intermediate Property & Casualty Underwriter (it goes Junior, Intermediate, Senior, Specialist). It's a step up and, in my humble opinion, the right decision.

I know pretty much nothing about being an underwriter. Educate me! smile

Intermediate definitely sounds better than junior, though your full title is a bit of a mouthful.

There's a simple explanation that I give to people, which is that I decide how much your insurance premium is going to be. A fancy explanation is that I act as an investor for the insurance company's capital. I look at coverages people want and decide whether or not to accept them, and then I set terms and premium for the policy. There's a lot of simple math involved in the process of arriving to the premium. Now, this is done for commercial policies. Any sort of personal policy, like auto or home, is done by computers because there are plenty of samples and the trends are easily predictable. I used to insurance boiler and machinery insurance (aka Engineering), but it's a small and specialized market, and I feel that there isn't far to go in. I chose to transfer into Property and Casualty because it's very general and there are plenty of opportunities. I want to gain some more general skills before specializing.

About 7:30. That's just enough time to drag my ass into the next room to have a smoke, make coffee, and wake up a bit before I start working at 8.

I get up at 5:30.
This is extremely early in my opinion, but at my new job my hours change weekly (not by much, thankfully). For my earliest shift I have to be up by 5:30, so I'm trying to get up at that time consistently.

I used to always sleep midnight to 8 am, so this is a big change!
posted 24-Feb-2013 4:14pm  
Anywhere between 4:30 and 9.

The alarm goes off at 6.30am. I'm usually awake a bit before that, but sometimes it catches me unawares smile

I'd wouldn't call 7:00 - to 7:59 "early". That's what I'd call a lie-in!

At least you're not an actuary. As the saying goes, an actuary is someone who tried their hand at accountancy, but wanted something a bit less frenetic.

That's really funny. smile I'm going to use it.

You can interpret it however who like. I left it ambiguous on purpose.

As so often happens, my comment was too brief. I wasn't really asking a question; I was trying to make a joke. My alarm clock wakes me up at the same time everyday. My problem is getting out of bed. I am so not a morning person.

Ah, got it. I can't always recognize jokes in writing, so thanks for clarifying.
