“I’ve had weird experiences throughout my life, starting at age 11. One night I was on the computer up way later than I should have been when I heard a noise in the kitchen and figured it was my dad. About 10 minutes later, I looked in because I thought he had fallen asleep at the table (happened frequently due to sleep issues), but no one was there. I then went back to the computer and while staring at the screen, I saw someone walk from the kitchen and into the hallway. It scared me pretty good.
