ok. so. my new house is right beside a park that is built on a graveyard. i was really excited about this central location next to this great park near all my friends and places i go. and for a cheap price.
the park and the houses around it are allegedly haunted. one summer i briefly worked for a ghost walk tour company and gave tours around town telling stories of local hauntings. we talked about this park but didn’t come to it (a bit out of the way of the walk/tourist area.)
i have been alone in this house a lot lately. like, every night. my roommate isn’t home, ever, or really moved in. i’ve been freaked out, mostly because i’m not used to be alone in an apartment, especially without a cat. also it’s on the groundfloor and i’m afraid of window break ins or seeing a face at my windows.
anyway i was walking in the hall and my bedroom light was off and just flickered on and off a few times. which is one of the things we talked about in our stories on the tour a lot.
and i was googling the park earlier and then was on some ghost wikia thing and reading about how a lot ppl say the houses bordering the park are haunted. and of the houses around the park, this is one of the houses closes to the actual park. there is no street separating me from the park, only one other house.
anyway, this sort of stuff has never really bothered me before. (although i did tell my old roommate i wouldn’t let her open her ouija board in our house, and i have a pretty consistent ‘don’t fuck with that shit just in case’ policy.)
but yeah.living alone freaks me out. living alone on a ground floor freaks me out. living alone in a new place freaks me out. living alone with nocat freaks me out. living alone next to a gravesite that is supposedly haunted apparently also freaks me out, especially when my lights flicker.
