Floating Green Head
I am a renter. I have a roommate. The odd thing is, the woman who showed it to me said she's never seen anything since she's lived here, but her son told me 5 different stories--a floating 'green head', cold hands pulling her feet off the bed in the night, a man was supposedly caught on camera unbarring the door to the auditorium but dissapeared right after it was removed, supposedly she heard laughter/talking in the stairwell, but no one was there. I heard a story about a basketball player that may have hung himself on the south side of the gym.
Me personally? We shut all the blinds in our apartment. We left to get an answering machine/see a movie, making sure my roomie's door was shut to her room so the cat couldn't get in. (It's a loft.) He followed me to the door, we left. When we returned, I couldn't find my cat. We ended up finding him, IN HER ROOM, under the bed, scared. He came out only for a few seconds before going back under on his haunches. The chalkboard she has (no chalk) was leaning against the wall (we just moved in this weekend) and when we got back it was lying down, and on the back was written (in chalk) Health (really darkly) and Guest (lightly, as if it were written and erased) and Box 20 (which is odd since we have EXACTLY 20 boxes in the apartment right now.) Plus, the blinds were all opened.
Nothing else was touched/moved/taken, so I know it wasn't a break in. My cat is going back and forth between acting normal and chasing (nothing?) around the apartment or hiding in corners or under my roomie's bed.
As far as a dangerous feeling..
There are many strange things in this building. The main hall is a large square. The laundry room is about 15 feet from the 'Pool' which has been converted into an apartment, also. In the hall you can always smell detergent/etc. The pool door has a little entry way, about 3 steps up, and then a wide (4 feet?) space to stand and the door to the pool. The second you step out of that main hall you smell CHLORINE. The walls are brick and the floor is marble. It was like that the first week. This week, everytime I've been in the building I've smelled it on the main stairwell, which makes no sense because the main stairs are encased in glass to preserve them and have doors that go out into a courtyard. It's always cold and well ventilated, and yet the.. musty chlorine smell. Friday night I could not even LOOK at the stairwell, I nearly had a panic attack. My heart was racing out of control and I felt sick. The 'Lunchroom' (now storage/maintenance) is where the supposed green thing was seen, and I felt a blast of cold air come at me when I stepped in about 5 feet to get a flatbed thing to move my stuff in.
In my specific apartment... I don't feel so much threatened as I feel... petrified. Nervous. My heart races at times, and at the times when I feel this way I also just want to... cry. Whenever those feelings come over me my cat seems to 'dissapear' for a while.
Just a few moments ago I went up to my roomie's room to get the air pump for my air mattress (getting a bed in a week) and my cat followed me. (He's like a dog. lol) However, when I walked into her room, he took off into MY room and lied down by the far wall staring at me. I decided that I couldn't bring myself to sleep in that big empty room, so after getting the pump downstairs I went in to my room to grab some pajama pants/pillows/etc and the cat took off like a bolt into HER room. I had to practically push him out so I could shut the door. I shut both doors and could not get downstairs fast enough.
The thing is, I only just this afternoon found out about the 'possible' hanging/suicide in the gym. During the day this apartment is beautiful--well lit, spacious, great. At night it echos... it seems more empty than it should be... and I have these feelings come over me.
I walked around the school last week after looking over the apartment w/my roommate, her father, and her sister and got HORRIBLE feelings in places. There's a stairwell w/a stained glass window. When I saw it I thought it was beautiful, amazing, and yet I felt very sad and it took me five minutes to get myself to walk down the stairs. While on the 3rd floor I saw the stairwell to the 4th, and the other 3 wanted to go up and check it out, but I refused to go, I had a bad feeling about it. I saw the Auditorium... the ticket box looks so dark and empty, I half expected something to come out at me. I peeked through the cracks in the door to the Auditorium and had chills run up my spine and had to pull myself away.
The first day I came to look at the place she showed me the pool apartment first... and although it was HUGE and quite impressive, I had this horrible wave of tragedy and sadness in there... and I felt a tiny bit dizzy as if I was sick. Today, when my friend Sam told me what he found about the gym, he also told me he found something about a girl who had been found face down in the pool, drowned, and supposedly she wasintoxicated when she had drowned.
I have spent 3 hours in the library trying to find some facts, and all I could find was stuff about the building itself or the students. Nothing about any deaths, or tragedies that were severe. It seemed very odd to me then and does now, because I graduated from Mishawaka and in my 4 years there 3 teachers died and 2 students, and that school has stood at it's current location for less time than this one.
I also could not find any information on why it closed. This specific building served as a school for 75 years exactly, and closed after the fall semester in 1971. It is quite large, and had 2200 students in 1957, was modern, and still in quite good condition, and yet for reasons I could not find, it was closed.
A friend of mine is a little... psychic, and her children see things. Normally, I would not believe people if they told me they were psychic, but she knew things about me that I had not told her. She asked me if I have always been affected by my surroundings in this way, and the only way I can possibley respond is yes. My whole life I've gotten... vibes from people/places. I never remember my dreams, unless the happen later.
Here I am, at 2 AM, unable to sleep even though I took something to help me sleep, because of this wave of sadness over me. It's odd because I FEEL as if I have this rush of adrenaline--as if my heart is racing--but it's beating normally, if not a little slower than normal because of the sleep aide. My skin is tingling and I feel as if I would jump 20 feet if someone came up behind me right now. I'm on edge, and I have no reason to be. It's quiet, except for the TV I have on for the sound of it, and the heater going. (Not to mention the tapping me me on the keyboard.)
I just have a general feeling of unease in my space at
night--more than any other time. During the day (for the most part) it's a
perfectly fabulous place, although I try to avoid taking the stairs and when I
come and go I walk quickly and keep my eyes forward... I feel as if I'm being
watched at times. Earlier today, around 12 pm, as I left my place, I came
around the corner and one of my neighbors was coming my direction and I nearly
Please get back with me as soon as you can. Look for me online, maybe we can talk about this sometime. (If this thing doesn't kill me in my sleep.)
