backstory: the school I work at in Vancouver, BC is being seismically upgraded, as are many because many of the schools built in VSB are gaining on 100 years old. In March (2020), before spring break, we all tirelessly packed up our entire classrooms in boxes to be moved over Spring Break to our ‘new school’ for the…
I have a treasure trove of weird stories. I’m “that friend” for ghost problems, bad ju-ju in your house, all that stuff. I did college ghost hunting (which went well in hand with being a reinactor — you get a good sense for the historical and the legendary, and you learn what stuff could be plausible in old houses as… Read more
No. I don’t like this. ACK!
This reminds me of when we came home from a 10 day vacation during the holidays about 5 years ago. We left our car in the driveway and had our ex-roommate come check the house once a day and play with/feed our cat. Our first night back, just after we got into bed, we heard a loud truck pull up and park right in front… Read more
The summer before moving away to college my best friend and I decided to take fun day trips around the state to spend time together, as we would be attending different universities. We’d been hiking at different state parks for most of the day and decided to stop at one last place for a quick hike. This park is well… Read more
My sister and her husband are foster parents to two little girls, and have two biological children of their own. They are hoping to adopt the girls but needed a bigger house for that to be a possibility. They started searching and found a giant house that used to be owned by a group of priests in the area. They housed… Read more
I didn’t tell my mom until I was an adult. She felt guilty that I was put in this situation. Growing up my siblings and I were often left alone with different workers in our homes because they were often still under construction in some way or we were in the process of moving. I look back and think it was insane, but… Read more
Back in college, I spent a semester abroad studying in New Zealand. Over one weekend, some girlfriends and I decided to book an overnight horse trek with a company just outside the city on the south island where we all went to school. The company offered an hours-long ride to a small, secluded beach where we would…
Growing up my family moved a lot. All within the same town. My parents had their own business building custom homes and for our family they would build a nice house and we would live in it until it sold. By the time I was 18 I had moved 30 times, mostly in the same town. Just from house to house. I mention this because… Read more
This happened when I was around 13 or 14. My dad had recently passed away, so it was just me, my mom, and my 5-years-younger brother. After my dad died, my mom became really adamant about always keeping the doors locked all the time, even though we lived in a safe, quiet neighborhood in a safe, quiet Alaskan town. I… Read more
Throw that shit away.
I do not want to scare you any more than you are but the 3:30 a.m. shit is particularly bad and suggests that the paranormal activity might not be caused by a human ghost (“incarnate energy” sounds like a kind euphemism to me...but those things usually don’t go away with ordinary house cleansings).
