How to Avoid a Sales Pitch

Have you ever found yourself walking in a mall or walking into a store and been accosted by an aggressive salesperson? Have you gone up to buy a book in a bookstore, only to find yourself in the middle of a sales pitch you didn't ask for or anticipate? I have, and if I have, I know you have too. I've learned over time how to see when someone is looking for someone to pitch to, how to say no successfully, and how to avoid sales pitches whenever possible. I can teach you how to do the same. I have always thought that the reason salespeople accost people in the mall or other places is because people have a hard time with confrontation and telling someone "no". Finding people who can't or w

Villisca Ax Murder House | My Experience

I've had experiences with the paranormal a good portion of my life, pretty much since I was 16 years old. I've never been to an well-known "haunted" location and didn't know if anything would even happen at the location. My husband and I have moved around a lot because we were both in the military, and since I'm from Maryland, I hadn't heard of this place before. My husband is from Iowa, so even though he had heard of the Villisca House, he'd never been, so he was okay with going. It took a while to get there, but when we got to the neighborhood where the house was, I started to feel uneasy. I felt like if I had gone alone, I would have turned back around and headed home, but since my husban

The Creepiest Movies of All Time | Film Recommendations

My favorite movie of all time is Session 9. I remember being drawn to it because it was about an asbestos removal crew working in an real abandoned mental hospital. Abandoned buildings are creepy all by themselves, but there's something about a mental hospital that's even creepier; patients were either perceived as being unstable or were unstable for a myriad of reasons, and the conditions they endured were typically deplorable as mental health treatment used to be a series of experimentation rather than ethically sound, clinically proven methods. This, of course, has changed in the last few decades, but people are still drawn to buildings that hosted horrors that are unknown to many. Ses

Sleepwalker | Original Story

Part One My husband and I have been married for nine years. Honestly, it doesn’t seem like it has been that long, and I am grateful to have found someone who is such a great person. We met when we were in the military; both stationed in Europe, and fell in love very quickly. We got married within the year of meeting each other, found a house off base, and started living together. When we first started dating, my husband would sleep in my dorm room on base, and he seemed to sleep very peacefully. He wouldn’t snore, toss or turn, or anything really. We slept in a small twin bed that was provided in every room, so I definitely would have noticed if he was a restless sleeper. However, when we
