So, this is going to sound silly, but I don’t care. For the last 14 or so years (possibly longer) I’ve had the same digital alarm clock. I’ve become attached to the thing. It wasn’t the loudest, but when it went off my brain recognized the sound and arise I would. Now it’s not working. The clock functions work, I can set the alarm, there’s just no noise when it’s supposed to go off. What I loved about that clock was that it was simple: time and noise, that’s it. I’ve now gotten a new clock, it has a radio I’ll probably never use. We’ll see how it goes, I’m willing to search for the perfect alarm clock (actually, I should just force myself to not use one, but I know I’ll end up missing a flight that way or something) but I’ll try the new one out for a while and then see where it goes.
