How to Wake up Early ?

Waking up early is one of a thing at which I have failed at many occurences. 

So, I got online Googled, binged spent time reading about it, researching it, devising strategies, experimenting it..alas equally spent time failing at it again too..

Intresting Things I have tried - the things which they claim as tricks and never worked are 

  1. Use multiple alarms - Definetly doesnt work. sometimes none of it ring.. Sad thing is who could you blame for it, If you didnt hear them ringing? I tried the max of 7 alarms.It Just doesnt work.
  2. Drink a tank - You wouldnt even sleep before before you are back in square one.
  3. Make the sleep comfortable - Like it wasnt and I am tying hard for it :P.Once Followed this and made the Room more airy like they said by opening up all windows for more fresh oxygen and next day I woke up full of cold and fever. 
  4. Sleep early - Bwhaha, This just gives you more personal time with your device or network like laptop/mobile phone/twitter/Facebook/Reader
  5. Get a pet ? - Seriously? Not a wise move IMHO. 
  6. Do not go to bed if you arent sleepy - and it becomes morning and sun pops up and smiles. 
  7. Advertise you are going to wake up early - People laugh and after little more occurences they just ignore.BTW am even feeling foolish to have tried this. 
  8. Use wake up call service - I want to wake up early, not to be woken up early by a third party. 
  9. Avoid Caffenie - Just not works.The point is with loads of Caffeine I was able to wake up at times with *spoiler alert*
  10. Use a Random alarm tone - you think it is some one else's alarm. you are just wise to derive reasons. 
  11. Use your favourite music as alarm tone - another funny trick. Wakes you up. you dont hit snooze and it times out. you wake up after some very long time and smile :)
  12. Hide your alarm clock - So that you would search for it, like hitting the snooze or dismiss the alarm is the first thing I need, there are times I had it close to my head and didnt even hear it ringing. I didnt even try this and it is just not my cup of idea. 
  13. Gradually sleep early and you will wake up early - Gradually ? Let me not waste time explainig why it doesnt work. Just know it doesnt work either. 
  14. Get someone wake you up - Again, defeats the purpose.I - I repeat _I_ want to wake up early and not to be woken up. But you know what ? This works and Moms are good at this.

Failing all these tricks doesnt mean I have never woke up early, I just couldnt wake up for the sake of waking up. and touch wood - I havent missed anything so important sleeping over it. 

Trying all this, There are some things which I find working 

  1. Do not sleep. awesomely perfect and simple. Just makes you lil tierd the next day. But it will be all ok. 
  2. Just do not rely on any method/trick/device/people, Belive - If you want to wake up you will wake up. Philosphical but truth. 
  3. Smell of breakfast - It just works :)

Though I feel exhausted of attempts, I would try if there is any intresting strategy which works or atleast would like to know if any tricks works for you.. Let me know.Drop a note. 

and Stay good.Sleep good.

How to Renew your Employment card(Tamilnadu Governments) online

Yes, Many of us have registered at employment offices.Few because of that bleak hope and didn't just want to take a chance and miss out the big opportunity just because you missed to register and others due to the enforcement from wise and few others due to the demand of well wishers.

Ok, To get to the point quick. I was registered and have the employment card too, and I wanted to renew it but couldnt because I was missing an information and I figured it luckily and the purpose of this post is to make it clear so that it could probably help.

Good news is - employment card can be renewed online.To renew it online you just got to go to and login and follow the angels and click renew and you are done.

The interesting part is you do not have the login details and the log in instructions at the portal are not very clear like they always were. Foolish me spent some worthy time hit at his place.

Login ID to this portal as mentioned - is exchange code suffixed with the registration number.Easy part is you have the exchange code from here
so lets say your exchange code is CHP and the registration ID as printed in your employement slip/card is 2009M13322 your user ID is not CHP2009M13322 as I thought and wasted my time but CHP2009M00013322. Just make sure you add up zeroes after M or F in your registration number so that the string length of the userid you cook up is 17  and the login the password is clearly DOB like DD/MM/YYY, sadly no easter eggs for password.

I think I can bet that I know how to write a bad post.and yeah, bye and have a good day!
