As much as I want to shift my body clock, going to bed early seems to have little to no impact on my ability to wake up bright-eyed and bushy-tailed. I have trouble falling asleep before 11:30 - 12 and even if I do somehow managed to fall asleep earlier than that, it's rare that I wake up before my alarm. I will then proceed to snooze for at least 1/2 hour if not more. That's just the way it is. I've got some work to do before I get that dog, apparently.
