Scooby Snacks

If I get nothing out of this whole paranormal adventure, I have learned how to pay more attention to what is around me and not take anything at face value. This is something that drives my kids nuts but makes me very happy!!

If I hear something then I stop, listen and calculate in my mind all of the things that the noise could have come from. The funny thing is that I went through a haunted house for Halloween and ended up finding all of the people who were going to jump out before they had a chance to scare me. I saw every potential "scare" and avoided it. It's sad because I went into the place to get the bejesus scared out of me and it didn't happen. I get it, being too analytical can be a bad thing but I'm cool with it.

Yeah, okay, I've always been the type of person who could come home and tell you if there was piece of lint out of place on the carpet. Now, I am even worse. I didn't say that I was a neat freak just that I can tell you if something is different than the last time I saw it. Plus, I pay attention to ever friggin sound, light change and what the hell else that happens around me. However, in my attention paying, I also rule things out quickly and am speedier at finding the source. These are things that I like about all this. I don't worry about stupid, small stuff that can be easily ruled out.

That being said, I don't mess around with the bs either. I find the answer and let you know what it is. If you choose to ignore what I tell you then you are the one who is going to risk looking like a dumbass!  I don't care if you like my answer or not, period. I will tell you the truth. I don't hype things to make people happy. I would rather debunk a thousand pieces of evidence than to get caught showing off something that is obviously nothing.

Oh my god, something just touched me!!

Those accursed words. Oh, how I hate them! Why? The reason is simple, it is really hard to prove that someone was actually touched. I am a very evidence driven person and there is nothing that I hate more than when someone claims to have been touched. I even hate it when I say it! I'm not saying that it's because I think the person is lying, but because I don't know if they are or not. I hate saying it because I think that other people think that I am lying.

The truly sucky thing is that there are a lot of people out there who say it just to get attention. Those people really piss me off! They take the credibility away from the ones who truly do feel like they've been touched. The "I just felt something go through me" or the fake being possessed people get on my nerves, too. Seriously? I've been on a lot of investigations and I have never felt like something has gone through me or been possessed. What makes these people so damn special? Simply put, they probably aren't.

Back to my original gripe, I have honestly felt things that didn't seem quite right. I don't mean after I just woke up from a dental procedure and my blouse is undone type of not quite right either. I mean the feeling that something or something is actually touching you. The funny tingle on your arm or a push on your back kinda something. I usually try to keep it to myself unless it is really obvious. You never know when a muscle is gonna spasm or something else that makes your skins react to something natural. So, it's not always easy to tell which is which. Sucks, I know.

I always worry that if I say anything either people are gonna look at me like I just told them that Elvis just possessed my body or you get the round of the "me, too" chorus that rarely seems genuine. The craziest thing of all is that it might actually be true. That's why I hate the "I just got touched" proclamation. Someone could really be full of crap but you don't really have a way of proving it. I know what I feel or not but I have no way of confirming what others feel AND THAT DRIVES ME NUTS!

Hold up there, gym shoe

To clarify, I am not THE mother of the paranormal and I do not in any way, shape or form believe that I am. Don't get it twisted, there are several way more qualified broads out there who should have that title. I do not claim to be one of them. Thank you! :-P

Hey kids!

Welcome to my fabulous blog! My name is Jennifer, I live in Las Vegas and am a single mom of three pretty sassy kids. Yes, we live in Vegas, no, I am not a stripper. In fact, I am currently going to school for Criminal Justice - Corrections. As boring as I may sound right now, I honestly try not to wear mom jeans and I don't drive a minivan. In fact, I call my SUV the "Mystery Machine."

Why, you ask. Well, the most interesting thing that I do in my life is that I am also a paranormal investigator. You bet your booties, I hunt ghosts. I have been doing this for about nine years now and I don't plan on stopping. I didn't decide to do this because I watched a bunch of tv shows and thought it looked like fun. No, I started doing this because I've had enough experiences in my life to keep me interested. To be official, I joined my first investigation group nine years ago but I've been doing this a lot longer! Throughout the years I have learned quite a lot and I am still learning more every day!! I don't claim to know everything but I am a very rational person and there isn't much that scares me. Spiders make me freeze up and whimper like a little girl. Other than that, I'm good.

I consider myself a "paranormal mom" not because I am a mom and a paranormal investigator but because I have become sort of a motherly influence to a lot of new investigators over the years. I am at heart a skeptic and I don't believe things just because it looks good. No, I have to rule out any and all factors to make sure that what I find is as close to real as it gets. Unfortunately, a lot of new investigators, and some older ones, tend to grasp at anything that they can find without "debunking" it first. Unfortunately still, other people will back them up and feed into the grasping.

There are two things that I hate with regards to graspers, windows and mirrors! Oh yeah, add dust orbs and smoke to that as well. I can't stand it when someone takes a picture of the outside of a building that they've never been in, sees something and automatically assumes that it is a spirit looking out at them. C'mon, seriously? Dude? I understand being all giddy thinking that you caught something but you have to use common sense. It's pretty rare to really catch something that is absolutely legit.

What I plan to do with this blog is to just be open and honest with people about the paranormal. If you have questions, ask me. If I don't know the answer then I'll find out. I'll also be posting about the investigations and experiences that I go through. Or I might post crap that looks cool. We'll see what happens.
