House of Creep Outs


‘Fear can only grow in darkness. Once you face fear with light, you win.’ -Steve Maraboli

My house creeps me out sometimes. I hear things, and sometimes see things. Maybe it’s just me being weird. I haven’t done a very good job at keeping track of all the strange things I’ve experienced in my house, but I do have some more memorable creep outs I’ll be sharing.

Just some background info on my house; it’s newly built and was built on neighboring farmland in this area. It was nothing before, just a bunch of dirt and rubble, along with the older houses that’ve been here for decades. My family has only been living in this house for a little over a year. We watched it get built and it was pretty awesome. After we knew the house was ours, we would make frequent trips to the neighborhood once a week to see the progress. One time we brought flashlights with us and went in and snooped around. Even though it was just an outer skeleton then. But that’s beside the point.

My Creep Outs:

First off, I’m always hearing knocking noises. Like actual knocking noises as if someone’s taking their hand and knocking on our walls like it’s a door. It does creep me out. Then I’ll hear knocking at my bedroom door but no one is there. It’s happened many times and it’s just weird. I’ll be hanging out in my room, on my laptop or writing, sitting in total silence, and then I’ll hear a little knock at the door. I normally just assume it’s my mother because she always knocks super lightly for some reason, but when I get up to answer the door, there’s no one there. And I’m all like, ‘Helloooo?’ but there’s no one around.

I guess most of the time I just brush it off and don’t make anything of it until I actually think about how many times it’s really happened.

Second, I think something is living inside of our walls. They always make these weird shuffling and scratching noises like something’s in there. That, or the people who built our house forgot something and our house is slowly falling apart.

Thirdly, my tv creeps the hell out of me at night time. It’ll randomly turn on by itself. Like a few seconds after I’ve just turned it off because I’m going to bed, it’ll turn itself back on like ‘Nuh uh girl you ain’t turnin me off!’ and I’m just like ‘WTF no it’s time for bed, go to sleep you crazy demented tv.’ And then in the middle of the night when it’s all quiet, it’ll make the loudest cracking noise EVER and it’ll wake me up. WHAT’RE YOU DOING TV?!

Fourthly, I always feel like something’s with me when I’m in my room. Like I always feel like something is watching me when I enter my room and it’s just standing in the corner at all times.

And one of the weirdest things that’s happened to me was when I went out to the kitchen and my brother was just standing there in the dark o_o

It was around 1am and I left my room to go to the kitchen to get some water. And as I approached the kitchen, I felt like someone was just watching me. So I walked faster to get to the kitchen so I could turn on the lights, and when I turned the corner I freaked cause I saw a shadow standing in the corner. I was like WTF. Well, not really, I was more like OMG HOLY FREAKING COW WHAT THE HELL IS THAT, WHAT IN THE WORLD, WHO IS STANDING IN THE KITCHEN IN PITCH DARKNESS?!?? o_O

And I reached for the light and turned it on and I saw my brother just standing by the sink. It was the weirdest thing. And I just looked at him for a second, then I was like, ‘What the heck are you doing standing in the freaking dark?’ and he didn’t say anything. So I just grabbed a water bottle and went back to my room. (Keep in mind that all this happened within 20 seconds. Just the way I explained it makes it seem like it happened over a few minutes.)

And yeah, my house gives me the creep outs…
