The Most Haunted Hotel In America: The Crescent

My mom, my sister, and I took an awesome girls’ weekend to Eureka Springs, Arkansas. First of all, I don’t know how they built that town, because it’s literally perched on a mountain with streets that are nearly straight up and down. Driving through the skinny, switchback streets I definitely prayed to the god of effective brakes. We stayed at “the most haunted hotel in America,” The Crescent Hotel, which […]

Haunted New Orleans

Haunted History Tours in New Orleans are a fun way to learn some history and get your bearings in the French Quarter. These walking tours are twenty-five bucks per person, but search the Internet for coupons because I found one for $3 off per person. You may be thinking to yourself, “That’s twenty plus bucks I could spend on Hurricanes at Pat O’Brien’s.” True. But for that price, you get […]

My Experiences at The Myrtles Plantation

Now for my experiences at The Myrtles Plantation, America’s most haunted house. 2:00 PM–We checked into The William Winters Room and after, literally, dropping off our bags, we left our room to walk around the grounds. About twenty minutes later we came back and as we opened the door to our room, Mom and I were overwhelmed with the smell of gardenias. The smell had not been there before and […]

The Most Haunted Home in the US: The Myrtles Plantation

Wake Up: Reality Gets Messy

In September, school really gets going again, so I wanted to highlight some movies that really got the wheels turning for me. In previous weeks, I highlighted Bully, which scrutinizes a common social problem and makes us think about how we can deal with bullying. I Am examines the big existential questions like “Who am I?” and “Why am I here?” The final documentary I chose really made me think […]

I Am: A Documentary Chock Full of Big Ideas

As Spirit Lady, I love thinking about the nature of reality. Actually, I’m pretty okay with believing there are things that happen in this world that we will never understand. Mystery excites me instead of scaring me (like I think it does to many people). When authorities (like intellectuals, religious leaders, or scientists) come across with an “I know everything” attitude, I always think about all the people throughout history […]
