What time do you wake up?

Marion (Ireland): Well, usually1 on a work day, I get up2 at half past six3 in the morning because I start work at eight o'clock. On the weekends I usually have a lie in4 so I wake up at about5 9 or 10, sometimes6 11, depending on how tired I am. Usually I go to bed quite late7, which isn't very good but maybe about midnight, sometimes later. It depends. I find it difficult8 to go to sleep early.

Naomi (Australia): Well, I'm a night owl9 so I usually don't go to bed until about 3 a.m. in the morning and these days I have class10 from first period every day so I have to get up by about 7:30 or 8 a.m.

Jeff (Canada): What time do I get up and what time do I go to bed? I go to bed late and I try to get up early11. I like to get up early but getting up is a difficult thing to do12, so I try to go the bed early. I try to go to bed early, 11 o'clock, 11:30, before midnight, and I try to get up early, 6:30, 7, before 7:30, but it doesn't always work13.

Barbara (Australia): So, what time do I usually get up? Well, I usually wake up, maybe 5 or 6 in the morning, but I don't get up straight away14. I stay in bed for a while15 and get used to the idea16 that the day is starting, maybe read a book or something, check17 my phone messages, and I get up at maybe 7:30, 8. If it's a day off18, I get up at nine or ten, and in the evening19 I usually go to bed around20 10, 11, sometimes 12.

Al (England): I get up when I want, usually in case I am working, unless21 I'm working. If I'm working I get up about 9, and I go to bed when feel tired22, so that's usually about 1 or 2 or 3 a.m.

Akane (Canada): What time do you usually get up and what time do you usually go to bed? I usually get up in the morning about 6:30, but that's only because24 I have to go to work. If I had a choice24 I would sleep in25 because I really hate26 mornings. I try to go to bed at around 10 p.m. so that I can27 get enough rest28 that I can get up in the morning for work, but I'd really rather29 stay up late30, because I'm night person.
