Let's Talk about Ghosts

I've been feeling inspired recently. Maybe I'm watching too many of my stories...and by 'my stories', I mean paranormal junk television. It's a guilty pleasure of mine. My recent inspiration has driven me to start posting more about the paranormal. No longer will this intense interest of mine be neglected on this blog. I've posted about paranormal subjects in the past, but not as much as I'd like. I plan to post about various phenomena, anecdotes, possible scientific explanations, investigating, opinions of mine, etc.

For my new readers: Welcome and thanks for following! I am a paranormal investigator. I am considerably lucky to have gotten entangled with a very capable group of investigators. I've learned much from them since getting involved in 2011, and I don't plan on stopping. Despite growing up with one superstitious side of the family (maternal), I was never a wholehearted believer until I had a meaningful encounter at the age of 16. (You can find that story, "Ghostly Encounters," in the list at the bottom of this post.) 

If you are a 'skeptic' or happen to have a different opinion (or new information), tell me about it! I'll never pass up a chance to gain perspective. However, I do ask that you be constructive and not mean. (One of the problems in the paranormal community is that there is an attitude of "Skeptics VS. Believers,"
 and I find this unfortunate. Nothing is black and white, and both sides can learn from one another.)

If anyone has any suggestions for posts, questions, or stories of your own to tell, feel free to comment! It's great to get feedback from readers.

  1. Oh yes! Please post about the paranormal! Those are my favorite stories! And maybe we can both share our love of trashy ghostly TV. XD

  2. You're an actual paranormal investigator? That's really cool!!! I've always been fascinated by stuff like that, but unfortunately I feel really weird about actually witnessing paranormal activity first hand. I grew in in a supposedly haunted house and was really paranoid about it... Ironically, I now work as an actor in a few "fun haunts" throughout the year, one of which is in an enormous, actually haunted abandoned tanning factory. I was stationed in a room which I got some bad vibes from and a few hours later learned I was only about 12 feet away from the most actively haunted area in the building... Apparently some investigators regularly do overnight stays in the place and have picked a lot of stuff up there. They let me see all the video and listen to EVPs.... I'm kind of freaked out about returning next year.

    1. I can relate to your paranoia. There's some weird things that have happened in my own house. I find my self much calmer at other locations, because I don't actually have to live there. It's really neat that you get to act at Halloween haunted houses. My group runs a house like that for charity around Halloween season, but I've never been involved with it because of school schedules.

My Mom Wanted me to Update my Blog

Well, I didn't plan to stop blogging. It just happened that I haven't posted in six months. A lot has happened in that time, and I owe it to my biggest fan, my mom, to post an update. Here it is, Mom!
I ended up going to a few more Goth club nights before I left Atlanta. I went with one to my best friend, who is pictured below:
Then I moved to rural Northern West Virginia where I can walk to water falls and hike up mountains. I live only 3 hours from Washington, D.C., so I've been there a few times as well. 

When Halloween came around, Ryan flew up to visit. We dressed as Titania and Bottom from A Midsummer Night's Dream and drove to the Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum for a Halloween Ball. The old asylum is huge and has beautiful Gothic architecture. We brought our own beer and walked around, ogling at the elaborately dressed costumers.


I even saw Robert Smith! He seemed very pleased that I recognized him.


Then, before we knew it, Christmas arrived. My roommates and I…

DIY Nose Chain

For those of you who've been trying to hunt down a nose chain, you probably know that they're difficult to find. Even online, there isn't a big selection. The ones I've found at a local Indian mall were pretty, but they weren't exactly what I was looking for. I finally decided it would be easier to make my own. 


What you need: Any kind of necklace chain (preferably lightweight)Nose ring (you can also make a lip chain if you have a lip ring.)Earring HookMetal loops (You might be able to find a couple on your necklace)Jewelry pliers (I used regular pliers, but it's a lot more difficult.)How To Make It: Measure out the length you want your nose chain. Using the  pliers, separate the chain to your desired length.Take the piece you need, and attach both ends to  the bigger metal loops.Attach one end to your earring hook and the other end to your nose ring. Make sure the ends are tightened enough where the nose chain won't come apa…

My First Time at a Goth Club

When I walked into the building for Ascension, a Goth/Industrial night, they started playing "This Corrosion." I was introduced to Goth six years ago when I listened to the song, so it was like the night saying "Merry Gothmas, Katie!" I'd been planning on going all week, but when Friday rolled around, I was so exhausted from spending the entire day getting a new car (my last one was totaled) and then visiting family with a long drive back. I came home and wanted to just take a nap, and after taking too long to decide, I got dressed and headed out the door. This past Ascension was the last one held at the Masquerade, a much-loved local venue, and I wanted to experience it before I left for West Virginia.





I'd known about Ascension for a while. One reason why I hadn't gone before this past Friday is because of being a student and having lived an hour away. It's a lame excuse. Aside from that, I told myself for years that I wasn't a cluby-type (alth…
