I am a college student. I have recently moved away from my home in Alabama to start my education. I attend a very historical college and I have heard 'stories' from a lot of people. I never gave the stories to much thought until about a month ago.
One night around 1am I was walking across campus to go to my dorm. There is a very long hallway beside our gym and I was going around the corner when I saw a dark shadow on the wall with no explanation. It appeared to be a very large male figure. I had the worst feeling I have ever had in my life at that moment. It was like all the anger and sadness and fear in the whole world landed right on my chest.
Now, even though I am a science major I was not to curious and walked all the way around the huge building and took the long way home. I let the little incident slip out of my mind until a few nights ago. For the past two weeks there have been strange things going on near or around my room. I have tried to explain them away but I can not think of anymore excuses.
My lights flip on and off CONSTANTLY to the point that is driving me insane. My computer blares heavy metal music as loud as it can periodically during the night. My alarm clock is stuck on 2:29 am and it never resets even if I unplug it. I feel someone touching my legs at night, I have even felt my cover be pulled off of me and now I have mysterious bruises and I can not think of a reason for me to have them even when I rack my brain.
My room-mate left about 3 weeks ago so I have the room to myself. When I look at my bed I can see the imprint of someone sitting there and my cover will never straighten out. Things go missing from my shelves all the time and I know that there has not been anyone in my room because I am the only one with a key. I never feel like I am alone and I try to avoid the room as much as I can. I sometimes hear heavy footsteps outside in the hall, but when I look there is no-one there and the lights are not on.
All of these things may seem silly, but I am getting to the point that I do not know what to do. I am very scientific minded and when I do not understand something it will drive me insane. In a way I feel like this is starting to control my life.
