I moved to a new house nine months ago to stay with a friend of the family while I was going to college. The house seemed mostly normal, aside from a few bumps in the night, until about a month ago. The first thing happened when I was sleeping. The woman I live with (who doesn't believe in ghosts) woke me up to ask me if I had turned the television on. I hadn't used the television in a few days as I don't really watch that much television and it was a completely random occurrence, so the tv couldn't have been set on a timer or it would have been turning on and off at the same time every day. So we dismissed it for the time and went to bed.
A few days later I was cleaning the house when I heard a woman singing. There was no radio on and I was the only person in the house. I went to see what it was and realized it was coming from the basement area. I stood next to the basement door and listened for a minute. After a few seconds, I heard footsteps coming up the stairs from the basement! I opened the basement door and there was no one there. Shortly after that (maybe a half hour later), I was eating lunch and the television turned on and then off. I sort of just disregarded it because it wasn't THAT big of a deal and I love the paranormal! A few seconds later, a woman's voice started talking in the back bedroom so I went to see if maybe the tv was on and it wasn't. There was no one in the room and I was home alone.
I called my mom to talk to her about it so I wouldn't feel creeped out. After that, not much happened for a few days and then about a week and a half later, I was cleaning the bedrooms and waiting for my friend to call. She said she would call around noon so I said OKAY and just cleaned while I waited. It was about 1:00pm and I decided to call her to see what she was doing. She said she had called and someone had picked up the phone and she could hear a tv in the background and then the phone was hung up. I thought maybe she had gotten the wrong number and she said she would hang up and hit redial because nobody had made any phone calls since then.
A few seconds later my phone rang. I was on the phone with her and I happened to walk by the basement door and I heard voices so I went down the stairs and found the basement television on. There is a phone in the basement of my house because my roommate's son used to stay down there so she put a phone in for him. Someone answered my phone from the basement and I was the only person in the entire house. The television in the basement had also not been used for AT LEAST a couple weeks and was definitely not set on a timer and the remote was on the shelf.
I think a woman stays in my basement. She sings sometimes and I hear her walk around. I like her though and she is friendly. Ghosts don't have to be scary! She is nice and she has a pretty singing voice. Sometimes I go downstairs and talk to her but nothing happens. Then when I go back upstairs she'll start making noise.
