Is it lame that I have a bunch of gigantic mirrors in my bedroom? Despite all the mirrors, I never feel any kind of... haunting.
I mean, as a little child, I was always scared in my bedroom (at the time, it was the basement)... it was dark, there were barely any lights (since we
didn't go down here) and it's a gigantic open space. Then, I don't really know what changed.
I moved down into the basement because I can't sleep unless it's pitch black, and I remember for the first few years I felt like there was something
else down here with me. But it wasn't malicious. I live in an old house, but the only people who have lived in this house throughout it's history
are related to me. So although I felt like there was something down here with me, I wasn't frightened. I was a little nervous, but not frightened. I
remember whenever I was alone, I started talking to whoever might be there... since I felt like there was something there, I might as well friendly
engage it. After a year or so of that, the feeling of being watched went away. As if whoever was there was satisfied with the fact that I was living
But I'll admit, my friends sometimes feel odd in my bedroom. I dunno if it's the creepy furnace noises, or the Darth Vader esque breathing sounds
that come from my freezer. Or if it's the deep black soot encrusted fireplace that hasn't been used in over 15 years... the thing looks like a mouth
of death right next to my bed. Or if it's the sheer amount of mirrors reflecting off each other. Or if it's the expanse of spider webs that tend to
form. I guess many things in my bedroom are creepy... but the two 5'+ mirrors aren't one of them.
