My Ghost Story

The Following is 100% True

My Ghost Story

In honor of Halloween being this month, I decided to share my own personal ghost experience. The following is 100% true. I have never shared this story with the public, and I have never even written it down until now.

My parents moved us back to Meridian, Idaho when I was sixteen years old. In our new home, I had the second master bedroom. This meant that attached to my bedroom was a bathroom. On one side, the bathroom had two sinks and a mirror above it. Opposite the mirror and sinks were a walk-in shower, and a tub next to it (not connected). I always felt a bad presence in there, but didn’t feel truly scared until this experience.

It was a summer day. I was in my room with the door shut reading, and while my dad was at work, my mom took some of my sisters with her to go shopping (I have three sisters total). When this happened, I thought my sister closest to me in age was home.

Outside of my door, I could hear loud running in the hallway. Back and forth, back and forth, really loud. I got annoyed and yelled at my sister to stop. The running noises outside my door continued, and I continued to yell at her to stop. Finally, I got up and opened the door. The noise stopped immediately. I thought she ran off to avoid me. I looked all over the house and couldn’t find her. I called my mom and asked if my sister was with her. She said yes. I had been home alone the entire time.

Later that night, I was washing my face up for bed. Remember what I said about the layout of the bathroom. As I raised my face from the sink and looked in the mirror, I saw, sitting in my bathtub, a woman. I can still remember what she looked like to this day. She had brown hair that was up in a bun, brown eyes, and she looked to be in her fifties. She looked straight ahead, not at me at all. As soon as I saw her I turned around to face the bathtub, but by the time I turned around, there was no one there.

After that, I was very quick whenever I used my bathroom. I never had another experience while I was there, and I haven’t had any since then. As I told this story to my mom for the first time, I watched a knowing smile come across her face. She told me that about a week after they moved in, they found out that a woman had died in that house.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
