A Strong Presence in the Room

Have you ever been home alone and felt another presence in the room? Like the feeling was so strong you knew for sure someone else is in the room with you. If you don’t understand what I mean. Basically, I am asking have you ever been in a room alone and it feels like someone else is there too. The crazy part about it is the fact you can feel them but not see them. I always believed it is a dead family member lingering in the room. Maybe if it’s not a dead family member. It could be the presence of a person who used to live in the house before you moved in. I bet this is probably creeping you out. You’re feeling a little paranoid just by reading this. Don’t worry I won’t frighten you too bad.

If you had this experience before does it feel weird to you? Maybe you even thought you were going a little crazy. Trust me you weren’t going crazy at all. The energy you were feeling was real. The only reason I am saying that is because I had the same experience. No, I haven’t seen anything float across the room. All I kept feeling is a person present in the room. Another funny thing about it is the fact that this happens randomly.

Let’s think of another theory. The presence could possibly be the spirit of God coming to visit you. Maybe it’s a way of him letting you know he’s still there for you. Sometimes we need that reminder. That probably didn’t cross your mind until now. This gives you something to think about. There are times we get caught up in worldly problems and we sometimes forget all we need to do is pray to God for help.

Do you have any theories on why sometimes you feel a strange presence in the room? If you had a similar or exact experience share how it made you feel. Did you get scared? Also, let me know if the two theories I mentioned came to mind as you were reading.

Got Back into The Groove of Reading

Lately, I’ve been getting back into the groove of reading again. I’m so excited that I put myself back into the habit of reading again. No, I wasn’t at a point where I hated reading. I just never seem to have time for it once I start focusing on other projects that I enjoyed doing. Plus, my mind was clutter with so many distractions I couldn’t focus on reading a book if my life depended on it.

Honestly, it made me feel some type of way. I wasn’t used to having a hard time reading a book. I guess I’ve been so caught up with social media that it tainted my focus a little bit. Now that I’m back reading books I feel like myself again.

For those of you that don’t know reading was/is my first love. Ever since I was a child I was in love with reading. I will always remember using money that I got from my mom or family members and go to the store to buy books. Being an adult now I have a bad habit of buying books every chance I get lol.  I guess you can say it’s not a bad habit though.

Another thing I thought about is maybe I should start doing book reviews on my blog. I already started it on my YouTube channel and I realize some people do enjoy it. I don’t know if you have noticed I did recently post a book review on the last book I read. If you want to read the review click here. On my blog, I probably will post a book review here and there though.

Anyways, it feels so good to read again. Reading is my escape from reality. It relaxes me just like writing. I have a question for you. Have you ever had a phrase where you stop reading and felt some type of way? or Do you enjoy reading now? If so, what are you currently reading or just got finish reading?

Dollar Tree Has Good Stuff (Dollar Tree Haul)

For those of you don’t know I love shopping at dollar tree. I find decent products for just a dollar. Yeah, I said it A DOLLAR! When I was on my weekend trip in Myrtle Beach, SC. I went to their Dollar Tree and got some cool items. Enjoy the items below I’m going to show you!

I thought these little journals were so cute! When I saw them, I fell in love. I couldn’t leave them in the store. They got added to my notebook/journal collection in my room. 

I had to get a new bottle of white out. It always come in handy when I make a mistake. This is a good brand too. So, it’s a good deal to get it for a dollar.


 I thought these were decent socks to buy. They last you for a good while. I was trying to find a pack of socks that had 3 pairs instead of 2

I’m a sucker for pens with different colors. I love colorful things. I know these pens work good. So, I had to get these. Now my notebook is going to have pages full of colorful writing.


Dollar Tree makeup section have good stuff most of the time. Usually I look and see what kind of lipsticks they have. This time I got this cute lip gloss. I can’t wait to try it! Also, I love the way it looks too. Sorry for the glare on the picture. 


I had to get some snacks!

Before I go to the register, I always got to make sure I get at least one of two snacks. Dollar Tree has a good variety of snacks you can choose from. The Lifesaver gummies are my favorite! I wish they had the wild berry flavor though. It tastes better than the basic flavors.



I love eating boiled peanuts! When I saw these in the store. I had to grab them. It’s a good late-night snack.





I’m hoping you enjoyed this Dollar Tree haul. This is something I may do again if everyone enjoyed this post. If you shopped at this store before comment items you love buying from there?

I Drove Myself Crazy 

Readers I drove myself CRAZY!! Honestly, July doesn’t feel like a good blogging month for me. It seems like too much is going on. I know soon it’s going to get hard trying to balance blogging and going back to school on campus. There are so many blog posts in my drafts that I haven’t published because they are not “good enough” yet. I came to the conclusion that I’m putting too much pressure on myself. For this month I might just do freestyle writing. I’m just going to go with the flow with my thoughts and publish some posts. Maybe I taught myself a lesson to stop putting pressure on myself and over thinking. Some of you probably been wondering why I haven’t been posting as much as I usually do. Another thing that was on my mind was am I throwing my blog focus off. I shouldn’t think that way because I gave it the name reflection of Des for a reason. Everything through my blog is a reflection of myself and a way to help others through my experiences. Y’all will see me posting again soon. Talk to everyone later 😊. I feel so relieved to get this off my mind.

I Pour Out My Real Feelings 

I have always been a person that wasn’t ashamed to express how I feel. It’s just hard to find someone who understands complex thoughts. That part frustrates me completely. No one can ever make me feel bad for being myself. Growing up I already knew how to be my own individual instead of following what the other kids are doing. If you get to know me I have a dope personality. I’ll probably be the silliest, coolest, and understanding person you can meet. Sorry to brag about myself, I just wanted to get this off my chest. Anything you read on my blog connects to me like my personality, thoughts, and feelings. I like to pour my real feelings out so I can connect and relate to my readers. Thank you to everyone that takes the time to read my blog posts. It makes me feel confident, special, and happy because I put a lot of effort into my writing content for my blog. I don’t want to make this post too long. I hope everyone is enjoying their day!!

My dreams tell my future 

I don’t know about anybody else but when I dream about things they come true. Have you ever experience dreaming about something at night and it comes true?? I guess that’s a sense of déjà vu. I did a little rhyme there lol. Anyways, I swear most of the time I dream about things that end up coming true. It’s like I dream about my future. Sometimes, I think that it’s awesome because I can expect what will happen next in my life. When I wake up from my dreams I always try to figure out the meaning behind it. There are hidden messages that I have to put together in order for me to easily understand it. I like the challenges because I’m a deep thinker. In dreams, you don’t exactly understand them at first, but later on it, all starts making sense. In my opinion, I feel like dreams are a way for people to see their own future. It just takes special kind of people to figure out the hidden message. So, if you read this blog post tell me what’s your opinion on the meaning of most dreams?
