You may have experienced the feeling... It's late. The sun set hours ago. You're in the living room on your laptop, or maybe in the corner of the dining room on your desktop. You're reading Alone at Night when suddenly you feel small and fragile. In every unseen room lurks something sinister. Something malicious. You want to look out your windows to see what that noise was, but are too afraid what you'll find. Did you lock the backdoor after taking the trash out? Maybe not.
Okay, so we've all been there at some time in our lives. Maybe we grew out of it, and maybe we didn't. Maybe some of us even enjoy it. That feeling of feathers sliding up your neck, of some mammalian instinct to tighten stomach muscles and breath quicker.
Can you overcome the willies? This wikihow page is all about steps one can take to keep from getting frightened while being home alone. Let's examine them one by one.
1 Scan Your Home. Take a walk-through of your house the second everyone is gone, before you really have time to let the fear set in. This includes looking behind couches, peeking at the spot between the door and the wall, and checking every room. You may feel silly, but it will save you from becoming paranoid later. Turn all lights on.
First, don't turn on all your lights. It wastes energy and money and only gives the people outside (waiting to get in) a better view of you in your pajamas. Secondly, as you move from room to room, so may the creepers, staying one room ahead of you (muahahaha).
That's not a dripping faucet. That's blood.
Brilliant. Can't be afraid of someone if you don't know they're coming.
Our recommendation is to sharpen your knives, at least take a few practice swings with your baseball bat. A pulled muscle is nothing to laugh at.
