Hi, I didn't know where to put this topic under, but I was curious, what is the first thing your mind usually thinks about when you wake up?

If it's not what dream I was having, then I will automatically hear or wake up to a song already in my head.  Sometimes it seems significant to what I was thinking about the day before, other times, it will just be a song that comes out of nowhere.   hmm.gif

And I'll notice that it's sometimes only certain lyrics that will be stuck in my head.  One time, I had the lyrics, "Some people live their dreams, some people close their eyes, some people's destiny...  passes by."  stuck in my head upon waking up for a whole week.

Is this something my subconscious or unconscious is trying to tell me?  And why is it that I will wake up to songs stuck in my head in the first place?  Sometimes they will be songs I haven't even thought about or heard for months, or even longer.  It'll just come out of the blue.

Anyways, so I was just curious, does this happen to you?  And if so, do you think the songs are meaningless, or is there a reason they're popping up first thing during the waking up process?

And what other things does your mind automatically think about/hear/or see when you first wake up?

well...  sometimes it's a song, but very very rarely. once it was a poem. but usually, especially if I must get up early, with alarm clock, it would be like visions - simply dreams, I guess  - moods, some strange...convictions. Like, memory of a forest of large, gigantic anchors, I remember this one from childhood... another time, the sensation of world around as a negative - like, there were valleys instead of mountains and the opposite, holes instead of things... It's just dreams.
The thing that amazes me the most, is that when I wake up, for a while I don't remember the situation completely, what day is today, what must I do, what happened yesterday - I love this state of mind, when I just lie there blank, then, slowly, memories come back.
edit:
oh, and if I wake up with a sore throat, for example, I get all kinds of these... let's say, fantasies. Sometimes I feel my throat like a copper tube, or a ball stuck in it, other times I imagine it being all cracked. Crazy things.

usually in the morning, I am on auto-pilot. No thoughts, no songs, no poems at all. I head straight to the john to pee, wash up, then get breakfast going. It isn't until after my first cup of coffee when my mind clicks on and starts to race about the things I need to do, what happened yesterday, etc.

tongue.gif  And here I thought this thread was gone into oblivion.  tongue.gif

Usually when I wake up I will either instantly remember my dream (which I love, most of the times ;P), think about how busy my day is going to be, or hear a song.  And sometimes it's a song I haven't heard in ages.  

justejust, that's interesting that you have a lot of visions like that when you wake up.  :\  Usually that happens to me when I'm drifting off to sleep.  I will just see a whole bunch of random images.  ...And I do agree with you about just lying in bed and not remembering anything, just maybe feeling comfortable and content about lying in bed and not having a care in the world.  ;P  Unfortunately that only happens on the mornings where I don't have to work.  XP
...That's interesting about a poem though.  :\  Mind me asking which poem?  original.gif

I do this sometimes too, where my body just automatically knows what I'm supposed to do, like get dressed, brush my teeth, and so on, and I won't really think about anything except how tired I am.  tongue.gif

Anyways, thanks for the replies!  ^^

Oh, yikes.  ;P  Sounds like a handful to me.  

I'm one of those sleepers who has to have absolute quite or white noise in order to sleep.  If a random dog barks, or I hear traffic in the streets, bass from neighbors playing, I will not be able to go to sleep.  XP  And it's the same for waking up.  Any little noise will most likely wake me up.  So I feel for you in that regards.  ;P  Now I have to have a fan going on in my room in order to block all other outside noises.  But since you have kids, you might not have that luxury.  :\

Do you at least have some time in the evenings to just relax and take a nap or snooze, meditate, anything like that?  Get some peaceful thoughts going, at least?  wink2.gif

...That's interesting about a poem though. :\ Mind me asking which poem?

oh it was Edgar Allan Poe, my favourite, "for Annie".  Only the part:
"My tantalized spirit
Here blandly reposes,
Forgetting, or never
Regretting its roses-"

over and over in my head.

Oh okay, thanks.  original.gif  
That sounds like a very beautiful and kind of sad verse too.

And yes, I've often had times where I will just recite the same words or lyrics over and over in my head, from when I wake up all throughout the day.  And I hate it when I'm trying to think of a particular song or saying, and it's on the tip of my tongue, but I can't remember it.  XP  Drives me crazy.  tongue.gif

Oh good you quit.  ^^  I wish my Mom had quit smoking, and I wish my sister would.  Now I'm wondering if that's the first thing my sister thinks about.  ;P

Oh don't even get me started on that.  ;P  When I used to play Zelda, that Goron's theme song used to be stuck in my head, and same with just random themes from video games I can't even remember.  tongue.gif  They'll just play over and over in my head and I'll literally want to drown my brain or something.  ;P

First thing I think of in the morning is wondering how fast I can get ready for school without being late (I'm usually late anyway). On the weekends or holidays, usually wake up thinking about a song, and I usually I can't get it out of my head until I listen to the song.
