Back in 2004, I was living alone in an apartment. It was a seemingly normal duplex built sometime in the 60s-70s. It always had kind of a mildly odd
feeling about it, which was most likely just my perception since it was always dark due to the interior finishings. It also felt much older than it
was, but I can't understand why.
One afternoon, I was on the couch in the living room watching TV. I stood up to walk towards the kitchen. I took two or three steps, and a small,
intense, white light appeared on the wall in front of me. It was about 1.5" in diameter. I was about 4 feet away from it. I stood there looking at
it, not thinking it was all that odd. As I walked toward the kitchen, it moved down the wall. I stopped walking, and it disappeared a split second
after I stopped moving. There was no way for any external light from outside to have been cast on that area of the wall, and I was wearing no
reflective watch, jewelry, etc. It did not behave like a reflected light in any way. It wasn't shimmering, or "wobbly". It was like a very steady
flashlight held closely to the wall. Still, I wasn't that irked by it. I just found it curious.
I immediately went into the kitchen to get a drink. Exiting the kitchen, I approached the transition from the kitchen to the family room, an identical
light appeared on the floor about 2 feet in front of me, motionless. I stopped walking, and it stayed there. I began to walk forward, and it moved
forward about 2 feet (still on the floor) as I walked. I stopped walking again, and it stopped once again. I remained standing there watching it, and
it disappeared after a second or two. I just got the strangest sense that this light really wanted to make itself known to me. For what reason, I
don't know. At the time I couldn't have imagined that this would have been something paranormal. But it was incredibly strange, and definitely
freaked me out quite a bit.
The following weekend, my best friend since 2nd grade came in to town for a visit and to record some music. He slept on the couch. He arrived on a
Friday. The morning after, the door to the spare bedroom where my computer and musical equipment was kept was shut and locked. It had one of those
turn button locks on it. I asked him if he locked the door. He did not. This happened 3 or 4 times throughout the weekend, but only during the times
we weren't there or had both gone to bed. It happened several more times the following week after he left.
The next part is what really concerned me. He said that he woke up several times throughout the night because a light kept waking him up. He would
open his eyes to see a light/apparition (I can't recall the color) "swirling" around the room. This happened roughly 5 or 6 times throughout the
night. He was pretty weirded out by it.
The final odd thing that I witness in that apartment concerned the TV. I was sitting on the couch, watching something. I was thinking about all of
those strange things that happened in the previous week. At that time, the volume on the TV began going up until it was about to max out. I grabbed
the remote, which was sitting on the arm of the couch and turned the volume down. I had that particular TV for 2 years prior to this, and 6 more years
after. It never again did anything strange like that. So I really don't think it was malfunctioning in any way.
Has anyone else had anything similar to what I've described? That is the only place I've lived where I witnessed such strange happenings.
