11:11

I have been wondering lately why it is so often 11:11 or 6:13 when I look at a clock. There are multiple theories. 1) It is quite likely that I don't look at the clock at those times any more regularly than I do at other times. The 'difference' is simply in my 'noticing' that I looked at the clock. 11:11 is a memorable time to observe. 6:13 is my date of birth. 2) It is also possible that my internal clock has trained itself to trigger my eyes to look at a clock at that time. Perhaps the sensation of seeing 11:11 or 6:13 is pleasing to my brain. 3) Perhaps my clocks are broken and they get stuck on those numbers. Are there specific times that you seem to always look at the clock?

I've recently started a summer internship at the church I attend and I have to be up at 8:00am in order to be ready and into the office for 9:00am. In the last week I've started waking up between 7:45am and 7:55am. I think I have subconsciously trained myself to wake up within this time frame to ensure I make it to the church on time.

I've noticed I look at the clock at precisely 4:08 (almost) every day. Dunno why.

This is really weird. I look at the clock and it is flashing 12:00 all day. Strange.
