The topic at hand is my failure to write two measly (fun fact I just spelled this measley as in Weasley because Harry Potter be on my brain) posts for the weekend.
So of course now you get them smushed into one. Yet again. I wish I were sorry. I'm not that sorry.
Day 18: Creepiest thing that ever happened to you?
I was working by myself in my office, and the basement is terrifying (see, Welcome to the Creepshow), and the door SLAMMED SHUT by itself. And the lights started flickering. And I heard banging downstairs. So I was positive I was about to get murdered.
The other equally terrifying thing was when I was house sitting and was beyond convinced I was gonna get murdered by a serial killer when the doorbell went off by itself and there was no one there so I slept with a knife beside my bed all night and barricaded myself in the bedroom until morning. I wrote about that here.
Day 19: Do you believe in ghosts?
This is about to get heavy because I need to bring up some controversial opinions. I do not believe in God, Satan, demons, angels, any of it. Or an afterlife. Or anything of the sort. I'm a straight up atheist and I've talked about that before. I'm not afraid to write about that in this christian filled blogging community. It's just not something I scream from the rooftops since there's really no reason to.
With that being said, it's really hard for me to believe in ghosts when I don't believe in anything after our time here on earth. Yet I still get the chills every time I'm in a basement, in a creepy house, or outside at night in the dark. I'm sure it's all psychological, and it's probably more of a serial killer fear from all the criminal minds I watch, but it's still hard not to believe. I almost want to, I want to believe in ghosts because of the mystery surrounding it. I watch ghost hunting shows and can't fathom any of it being real. I want to use a Ouija board even though I know nothing will happen.
I can't explain it but I want to believe so bad but just can't. And I don't even know why I want to believe. None of it makes sense.
Come back tomorrow and I'll double up again to catch up.
But for now, I want you to weigh in on both topics! I love hearing from you :).
