saifai: (Wall-e Rubiks Cube (sporkyadrasteia))
  • Been feeling under the weather the past two days. Though my dizzy spells have never abated the migraines have been off and on. Yesterday I had severe migraines pretty much all day. Today it was being sick to my stomach.
  • Getting more comfortable in my paranormal investigation group. It's rather hard for me to come out of my shell. I'm trying to make a point of socializing more, and not isolating myself so much. I know I'm never going to come out of my depression if I don't take steps to protect myself. So, out of the hobbit hole I come.
  • Been watching a few films on Netflix during the day while I'm working. One in particular just tickled me. I wasn't all that impressed with the quality of the film, as I thought the plot very... incomplete. However, it was a treasure to see wee little baby-faced Colin Firth, Rupert Everett, and Cary Elwes. A film from way back in 1984 titled "Another Country". Best bit of it is that it takes place at an all boys school, in England, and Rupert's boyfriend is Cary. *squee*
  • Colored my hair a different shade than usual. Went with medium reddish brown, which on my already dark hair turns out more like a black henna color. It's black, but with a red tint. Of course, my grey hairs turned out a reddish brown, so it's got an odd highlighting to it. Not sure I like it, but it's good for now.

    That's it for now. Time to rest a bit and see if that doesn't make me feel a bit better.

    Hope everyone else's day/week/month/year have been going well.

    Never thought going to bed early would totally throw off my routine.

    Had an early night of it last night. Went to bed at 9pm. Woke up bright eyed and bushy tailed at 2am.

    *sigh*

    I forced myself back to sleep at 3am. Kinda thinking it was a mistake. I feel so... worn out. Yet wide awake at the same time. I'm yawning, but my eyes are wide open. Feel like I should lay down for a week. But my eyes won't close.

    No more early nights for me.

    On a side note, I've joined a new ghost hunting group. It's the TAPS family member group for my area. Really looking forward to getting my feet back in the game! Been out of it for about a year now since my previous group disbanded.

    I'm watching the Halloween special for Ghost Hunters on SciFi. Not sure I'll make it much past 9 or so, but we'll see.

    I ate dinner early. I got my snacks ready to go. I'm tired as hell, but I'm prepared to take in caffeine if I have to.

    Also? I'm home alone for Halloween. You can't geek out over a show and make a fool of yourself if there's people to witness it.

    *bounces on seat and tries not to hit panic button just to try it*

    P.S. I hate too much of the Halloween candy. I've probably got enough left for my several little monsters. But I'm greedy like that. I need my munchies. So, the porch light is out. No treats for the tricksie little hobbitses.

    Got the photos from my first training session with the ghost hunting group.  I don't have the audio yet, but the a few of the photos produced some interesting results.  I should be going out for my next training session in the next couple weeks.

    For those that are curious, there's a public site with all my training photos up.  I didn't take any of them.  The ones that are up had some form of activity in them.  You can see those here.

    There was one photo in particular that got my attention.  There was something odd about the photograph in the center that I couldn't identify.  I ran it through Photoshop to increase the brightness and contrast.  I came up with some interesting results.  I put them up in a gallery here.

    Now for the exciting bit of news.  I think I mentioned once or twice the paranormal investigation group that I had investigated.  Well last night I had my first training session.  It really was quite the experience.

    I'm a what?!
    The first surprising thing as that I was introduced to the group as a "sensitive," or someone who is more sensative to the energy around them.  I had not realized that the experiences I've had are not of the norm.  What really made the difference for this is walking through the cemetery.

    We walked through the old military cemetery in town.  I may have been there once or twice, as it looked vaguely familiar to me.  I know that sounds a strange thing to say, but I don't remember much from my senior year of high school or the couple years after that.  I might have been there, and it looked vaguely familiar, but I'm not positive.

    So how does this work?
    But I digress.  Part of the reason for me being there is they wanted to test my feelings as a sensative against what they already knew of the area through prior research.  It was odd for me first of all to have a feeling or sensation that they then expected me to share with the group.  I'm so used to either ignoring it, or feeling it and not sharing it.  But I found as I went through the area that when I would have an out of place emotion, a strong sensation of being watched, or perhaps see something out of the corner of my eye?  Someone else in the group would pick up on it moments later for one reason or another.

  • For example, when I first got there I noticed right away two trees that seemed to have a red glare between them.  I don't see all that well at night anyway, so I wasn't sure what to make of it.  Once we got in through the gates of the cemetery though, I couldn't find the two trees that I first saw.  It wasn't until we were leaving that they led me over to a grave to visit a young lady named "Alice" who has been picked up on audio before.  When I got there, I turned around in a circle to see the two trees.  Her grave was situated between those two trees.

  • Another example was one particular area of the cemetery that holds no graves.  I felt a pull towards it.  I felt giddy and was anxious to see it.  I wanted to run down and see it.  Another of their members, a sensative, called the leader of the group to tell her to investigate that area a bit later.  Once we finally got down there though, I felt a strong feeling of being watched.  I felt that tense sensation in my skin when someone is standing close to you.  Another woman who was with me at that time held the temperature gauges.  The temperature dropped in that area.  Only further analysis will tell if the audio shows anything, but we spotted a few odd things on film.

  • The last example, was when we were leaving.  I caught something out of the corner of my eye.  I looked to the left and saw what looked like a path.  I shined my flashlight up there, and saw a small dirt path and a line of gravestones rather out of the way at the top corner of the cemetery.  I flash of color popped up, and squinting revealed it to be perhaps a bouquet of flowers.  I had caught the attention of one of the other ladies in the group, and was just about to suggest we go up there for one last look since I started to feel anxious about the area.  The leader of the group came up behind me.  She said, "Well lets go visit the Collins and then we can leave."  It turned out to be an area they visit often.  It's a family.  All their children died young, and within a few years of each other.  I'm not sure when the father died, but he outlived his entire family by many years at least.

    What now?
    Well, now I just learn how to do the investigations and work the equipment.  In a couple weeks another person is going on their first training session.  I'll be going along then.  Only time will tell how this goes.  Regardless of what feelings I have, I am still rather excited to learn more about what goes on out there.
