                    One morning I was home alone playing on my laptop I looked up and the bathroom door shut on it's own.
                    No drafts and our dogs were in another part of the house. I just said hi to whoever it was and went back to my laptop.

                      I've got a couple of stories but the one that isn't "paranormal" related, for those interested, was that I was alone in the living room of my apartment (ground floor), my mum had gone to bed already upstairs, and its 2AM or so in the morning. I'm listening to music with my headphones on, and have the back door open to let in some air as its the middle of summer and hot as shit in our house. My computer faces the door, and we have a huge ass couch making entry to that door really difficult, so it's not a huge worry that it's open in the middle of the night.

                      All of a sudden I hear a loud ass knock on the back window next to the screen door, so I whip off my headphones and there's deadass a guy there, asking to come in to pet my cats. I really should have called the cops in hindsight, but I stood there for about 5 minutes talking this guy down from trying to get into my house until he slinked off. He had kept reaching for the screen door handle, but then would think against it. I immediately closed the door once he left, locked it, threw the blinds down, and ran upstairs to get my mum. A neighbor eventually called the cops on the guy as he was now trying to get into the neighbors house, since they had dogs. That night scared the ever-living shit out of me.

                                    This happened to me quite a while ago. I was upstairs home alone watching tv. My parents had gone to pick up my brother from tutoring at around 8pm. I’m watching the tv when suddenly I hear coughing coming from downstairs. I have no idea who it could be and slowly walk to the door of my bedroom. As I peer down the stairs I swore I saw the shadow of a man just standing there. I’m slowly walking back to my room reaching for the phone when whoever it was starts sprinting upstairs. I slam the door shut and jump back, cricket bat in hand , staring at the door for the man to appear as I lay there legit shaking. (Note i had no lock on my door and I felt helpless af). No one came, turns out no one apparently even was in the house to begin with, no break in, all doors locked, surveillance checked, I still feel the shivers every time I think of what happened. I haven’t stayed home since, never again.

                                                  I wasnt home alone but still

                                                  I was in bed i couldnt sleep because of my insomnia,everyone was asleep.
                                                  My room is right next to the stairs and that leads to the door.
                                                  I opened my door to go to the bedroom, but because it was dark i saw something light what shouldnt be there.
                                                  i looked right and saw that the door was open i stood there for a while until i heard my father asked what i was doing i wispered to him that the frontdoor was open.
                                                  Everyone was awake and we looked everywhere if there was someone there, but nothing.
                                                  Everyone went back to sleep and the next morning my parents call the police.
                                                  Or door cant be opened from the outside because we have 3 diffrent locks.
                                                  So they said it only could be opened on the inside, they asumemd it was someone who sleep walked.
                                                  When i sleep i can sleep walk or scream in my sleep, but this time i was the whole night awake even before it happened.
                                                  My parents thought it was me, but nope.

                                                  and we still don´t know how it happened.

That noon, i was home alone sleeping in my room, when i heard a sound. I was kinda scared because i watched way too many horror movie, I shocked for a second, then listen more carefully. I realise it was the moving sound that my chair make. I was freak out. The sound countinued untill my parents came home.

Is it illegal to do any part of that?

Put my grinder down next to my mouse to get some water, come back 20 secs later and it´s inside the desk drawer a meter away from where it was. butterfly knife, has had the same spot for years. haven´t touched it in months. a week ago it suddenly was on the kitchen counter. there´s constantly items moving in my appartment, sometimes they just move a slight small as diistance, sometomes they seem to teleport from one end of the flat to the other. and some things just fucking dissapear. once dropped a bag of screws on my couch, turned around, turned back and it was just gone. and stayed that way after i took the damn couch apart piece by piece. i think my place is cursed or some shit, would explain the unexplainable wifi problems

We were in the living room watching TV while my mom and dad were at the store or something, I don't remember. The two of us were just watch TV and we heard something fall off the table. We both went running to the kitchen and saw nothing on the floor. Which was weird, nothing like that happened before. I'm still traumatized by being home alone. And I'm 13 years old....
