Happy Monday!


I am not a morning person, far from it. On the spectrum of early bird to night owl, I have always leaned more towards the later. Especially as of late, my go-to morning motivations (blasting music and littering my room with passive aggressive notes about “NO SNOOZE!”) seem to have stopped working .

So this iPhone alarm — kindly sent in to — appealed.

But what if legal threats still fail to get revision-phobic students out of bed?

Well, you could try the nuclear option: an app that charges you money when you fail to rouse. The iCukoo app donates to charity every time you hit snooze. That would get most law students moving.
