The incident happened in London, UK at the beginning of the year 2008. I was studying for my Masters and living in the university accommodations. The room was an En - suite, with the bathroom opening directly into the room. It was a small room (with no hidden corners) on the first floor with only one point of entry (the door) and a window.
It was around 6 in the evening and I had just returned from Uni. Locking the door behind me, I readied to take a shower. My laptop was on a chair besides my bed and I selected a playlist on the media player to have some music playing while I showered. I had left the bathroom door ajar so I could hear the songs in the shower.
While in the shower, the songs suddenly stopped (mid-song). I figured that maybe an error had popped up and caused the songs to stop. Therefore it didn't seem out of ordinary to me. When I did step out of the bathroom, I was a little stumped to find my bunny slipper on my laptop, placed right across the keyboard. I was sure that when I had stepped in the bathroom they were on the floor beside the bed. However, since I didn't want to completely freak myself out, I simply picked it up and put it beside the bed on the floor and stepped into the bathroom to finish dressing.
I must have been in the bathroom for around 5 minutes. Stepping out I discovered BOTH my Slippers ON MY LAPTOP. There was no one else in the room apart from me and the Door & Window were locked shut. Needless to say that it had me freaked out completely. I just grabbed the key to the door and rushed to my friend's room across the corridor. I was too shaken to say anything for a while.
I never ever felt uneasy in the room. Nor did I ever feel any presence there. However, a friend across the corridor used to say that he felt as if someone was always in the room with him, even when he knew there wasn't anybody there. I'm not sure if my experience and his feelings of a presence are connected.
After the Slipper incident, I noticed that my things kept disappearing for a while and once I stopped looking for them they would reappear. The Things that disappeared were things that I would be using at the time e.g. A sheaf of notes or a pen or the stapler. It would be there one second, turn around come back after a minute and it would be gone. I just couldn't find them no matter how much I searched for them. Would end up finding them when I gave up looking for them. Almost as if it was a game.
During times when I was running against a dead line (studying for an exam the next day or a deadline on a paper submission) if things disappeared I took to saying out loud "Please, not now, I really don't have the time" I'd get the things back sooner.
It was not scary or spooky... I just don't know what to make of my experience and would love insights or thoughts and comments.
If I have left out any details, and it has raised questions, please let me know, I will try to answer as many as I can.
