5:30 am here.
5:30 a.m. - AKA "stupid o'clock"
Liberté, égalité, fraternité
I insist I should never, ever get up before sunrise
7:30-8:30 AM usually. I don't work until 12 PM.
I get up at 6 am every day. It doesn't matter what time I go to sleep, at 6 am I'll be up and ready for the day. This is not by desire, just my body's way.
7:45 weekday alarm easily has hubby to his desk for 9, 5 minutes drive.
Weekend no alarm, up 9ish if we're doing something. 10ish if we're not.
Working day around 5am , on days off around 10am.................
When the sun comes storming in my window.
Unless the pug comes bouncing in on me.
An hour before I have to be somewhere, but 10 at the latest. Only time it's different is if it takes longer than a half hour to get where I need to go.
Author of Lost in a Dream. If you want to make me smile, read it and tell me what you think.
Usually awake between 3 and 4 AM. No special reason, just the way my internal clock is. Once awake I can not go back to sleep so I usually get up and hit the computer or I stay in bed and read.
On school days, Sir Ron arises from his bed at 6:00 AM, except if we have a 7:45 AM faculty meeting, and then I wake up at 5:30 AM.
On weekends, I am up at 7:00 AM on Saturdays and no earlier than 9:00 AM on Sundays.
During school holidays, all bets are off...I sleep in until I am awake...whenever.....

On weekdays my alarm is set for 6.28. I listen to the news headlines on the radio at 6.30 and head to the bathroom by 6.40. At weekends, I usually have a lie in until about 8.00.
6:05am weekdays. Weekends variable. On days where I have animal work planned and there is pre-prep before the new drug goes in, I'm on the road before 5am.
I suppose now that I am no longer smoking I could knock a few minutes off of that timing as I no longer need to account for the first cigarette of the day.
My alarm clock may say 8:00AM but it is actually 7:40AM.
On the weekends it is 9:00AM aka 8:40AM. I usually end up napping on Saturday and Sunday.
6am Monday-Friday, unless I have to be somewhere requiring me to get up earlier. 7am on the wekkends, unless I have to work.
3:30- 4:00 a.m. m-f, sat,sun around 6:00. I start work at 6:00 and enjoy some time before going in, I hate rushing to go any where.
I usually get up at the crack of noon ... but if I'm feeling lazy I have a lie in.
As I've mentioned on here before, I have no fixed sleeping times and they go forward by very roughly about 1 hour each day, completing a 24-hour cycle in say about 2 or 3 weeks. Day or night has no relevance. This means that for half of my adult life, I've been asleep most or part of the day. Case in point - today I woke up at 4pm, and I'll go to sleep about 7am. Tomorrow I might wake up at 5pm, and sleep at 8am, etc.
That cycle has been going on for nearly 20 years now. I essentially have a 25-hour sleeping clock.
Any time between 3 and 7 AM, but not by choice.
I'm usually asleep by midnight, but, by 3 o'clock, my back wakes me up and I have to sit up on the side of the bed for at least a half hour before lying down again. Most times, I manage to go back to sleep, but I usually wake up again and have to sit up once more before trying to go back to sleep again. If I do, rarely sleep beyond 7 o'clock.
It's been many, many years since I've had a decent night's sleep.
3am M-TH, 6am Fridays, and sometimes 3am Saturday and Sunday. I like being up early to pray and meditate especially as the sun rises.
I set my alarm clock to 5:40 AM and get up around 5:50 AM.
I seem to be needing less sleep as I get older. I sleep at 1am and wake 6.30 ish.
With my work schedule, its complicated.
It can take me as little as 20 minutes to get to work, or as long as an hour depending on traffic and weather. I try and get up about 45 minutes before I have to leave the house.
The earliest my workday usually starts is 7 AM, but there are a few times a year I have to show up at the place at 3AM. Delivery days I usually am supposed to be there at 10:30 AM but I try to get there about 9:45. Black Friday I open the building so I have to get there at 10:30 PM to open (blech). During inventories I have to start usually 7 or 8 PM.
My get-up time has to be recalculated daily.
edit: Oh! on days off, I try to get up around 11 but with the new annoying barkie dog next door (apparently her favorite activity, just under my window too), I was up at 8AM sunday

If I am home 5am, otherwise, it depends on what part of the world I'm in on any given day throughout the month.
Around 4:00 PM. Unless I'm still tired then 6-7:00 isn't out of the question. I don't go to bed until well after the sun comes up...
