381. TME TO WAKE UP

AWAKE es un verbo irregular: Awake / Awoke / Awoken

I awoke suddenly due to a loud noise  = Me desperté de pronto debido a un fuerte ruido


Lo que pasa es que se suele usar mas el verbo compuesto (phrasal verb) WAKE UP

- I woke up suddenly due to a loud noise
- I woke up with a hangover  = Me desperté con una resaca

AWAKE SE USA MAS COMO ADJETIVO

- Are you awake?   =  ¿Estás despierto?
- Stay awake = Mantente despierto
- You kept me awake all night with your snoring  = No me dejaste dormir toda la noche por tus ronquidos
- After drinking a coffee, I was wide awake  = Después de tomar un café, estaba totalmente despierto

Por tanto, se usa mucho WAKE UP
- Time to wake up  = hora de despertarse
* NO SE DICE "TIME TO AWAKE"
- What time did you wake up?  =  ¿A que hora te despertaste?
- I woke up very late  = Me desperté muy tarde
- I hate waking up in the middle of a dream  =  Odio despertarme en medio de un sueño


Una expresión popular es:  "RISE AND SHINE"  = HORA DE LEVANTARSE
Otra expresión es: "WAKE UP WITH A START" Se usa cuando de pronto de despiertas por un susto o un ruido
I heard someone shout and I woke up with a start  = Oí alguien gritar y me desperté de pronto

Tambien se puede decir: WAKE + PRONOMBRE COMO OBJETO 
- Wake me up at 7.00  =  Despiértame a las siete
- Rememeber to wake your sister up at 6.00  =  Acuérdate de despertar a tu hermana a las seis
- Did you wake your father up?  = ¿Despertaste a tu padre?
- Don´t wake me up. I don´t have to go to work today  = No me despiertes. No tengo que ir al trabajo hoy.
Why didn´t you wake me up?  = ¿Porqué no me despertaste?
- Sorry to wake you up   =  Perdona por despertarte

Y recordar que otro verbo compuesto es GET UP y significa LEVANTARSE

- It´s not easy to get up early Monday morning  = No es facil levantarse temprano el lunes por la mañana

Get up "SLEEPHEAD"  = DORMILÓN







GET UP tambien significa levantarse del suelo o la calle
- Get up off the floor  = Levántante del suelo
- If you fall down, just get up  = Si te caes, simplemente levántate
- Can you help me get him up?  = ¿Me puedes ayudar a levantarle?

So, the question is why it´s so hard to WAKE UP IN THE MORNING....
ESPECIALLY MONDAY

Perhaps it´s just a mind problem! If one sleeps well, then it doesn´t matter what day it is.
If you wake up, then you´re not dead... and you should be happy to live another day and do whatever you have to do.
It doesn´t matter if have to go to work. Everyday is a different day.
Everyday is a good day to wake up, make yourself a cup of coffee or tea and start the day with energy and in a good mood, because it´s a NEW DAY.

It´s also better to go to bed at the same time every night.
Don´t eat too much and go to bed with a full stomach. If you eat a lot, wait at least two hours before going to bed.
If you go out, don´t get drunk or you will wake up with a hangover...and that´s really awful.
Don´t go to bed stressed or angry. 
Reading a little in bed can make you sleepy and turn off the brain.



Vocabulary

hangover  = resaca
hard = duro / deficil
it doesn´t matter  = da igual
should  = debería
whatever  = lo que
it doesn´t matter  = no importa
good mood  = buen humor
too much  = demasiado
at least  = por lo menos
going to bed  = acostarse
go out  = salir
get drunk  = emborracharse
hangover  = resaca
awful  = horrible
make you sleepy  = te da sueño

Here are some funny photos about waking up.
