    Top 10 Random Marissa Facts

    1. I am obsessed with space. I am sure many people are interested in space. But I LOVE it. I drive people around me nuts constantly pointing out constellations, planets, and keeping up with launches and planetary alignments, etc. I keep up with moon phases and any story that deals with aliens. That whole concept fascinates me. I would love to have a conversation with one. In Los Angeles back in 2012, the space shuttle Endeavor went through the streets for us to see. I waited 11 hours to see him as he went by. Later, I went to the Science Center and saw his final home as a museum…

    Ghosts…they are just like us!

    So where did my interest in the paranormal start? As a small child, I loved Scooby Doo and Ghostbusters. I adored Halloween and spooky things. But the real interest in the actual paranormal is different. I feel it comes down to two things. One is that I love history and the thought of communicating with history is fascinating. Earthbound spirits are from the past, after all. The other part is due to the fact I lived in a haunted townhouse for a period of time in my early teens. I had many friends that witnessed what I was seeing so I knew it was not just me. If you have…

    Earliest Memories

    From time to time, I find myself remembering the most random things from my childhood. Things I had forgotten about or hadn’t thought about in forever. So I want to start recording them so they do not slip away again. These are no in particular order. Just as they come to me. I will add to this list as I remember over time. Ooooo time for a list! I remember being super little and The Beatles were my imaginary friends in the backyard of my grandparent’s house. I also had an imaginary friend named Amy. My neighbor, Erica, and I would put a blanket over the fence separating our yards…

    Dream #1 A Recurring Place…Not Dream.

    Row, row, row your boat…Life is but a dream. So when I say this is the dream category of my website, I literally mean the sleeping kind. My first post here is going to be dedicated to a very specific cemetery. Yes, you read that correctly. Now I have to find a way to explain this… Just so you know, I am someone who remembers my dreams 90% of the time. I can even remember certain dreams from years ago. That is an important detail of this story. My dreams are always in color and extremely detailed. More often than not, they are also crazy weird, and hard to explain.…

    Witness to a Murder…Almost…

    A little known fact about me is that being a Detective or FBI agent was actually something that interested me back in the day. However, I know myself well enough to know that while I may have been interested in it, I probably would not have handled it well. I am an empath and feel people’s emotions deeply. I think the job would have eventually gotten to me over time. So I live vicariously through true crime documentaries, books, and movies. However, one April night back in college, a true crime story hit extremely close to home. That is the story of a young 13 year old girl named Tiffany.…

    I Love Special Effects Makeup

    I also love doing special effects makeup on myself. I do scary makeup around Halloween because it’s really the only time you can get away with it. Plus its more fun to do! For Halloween when I was working at the costume house, I would always do a different makeup look leading up to Oct. 31st. My favorite was when I was Walter White from Breaking Bad. All looks created by yours truly.
