Weird world of (not) reality…aka dreams.

I was awakened early this morning from one of the weirdest, scariest, craziest dreams I have ever had! I was pretty startled when I awoke, but not just from the dream itself, but also from how I was woken up.

Let me first explain to my readers that I am a firm believer in ghosts and spirits of all kinds, including ones that aren’t so casper the friendly ghost. I have experienced things in my life that most people would not even think to believe, however I don’t typically share my stories due to the fact that I ate the “you’re crazy” or “that didn’t really happen to you” looks and/or comments I have gotten before. If you would like to hear some of my experiences, leave me a comment and I will share some of them.

Anyways, with that being said, I will explain my dream.

It started with me, my cousin Jamie and my grandma and grandpa in a house. In my dream, my cousin had began to explain to me that she had seen the spirits of two little girls and an old woman in the house. she explained to me that they were evil and hateful spirits and that if I see them, I need to run. She said first, you’ll see a little girl and it all goes downhill after that.

Upon standing in the kitchen with Jamie, my eyes caught sight of a small child, black and white who plainly walked passed me, I never saw her face. I remember exactly what she was wearing, her hair, everything.

I listened to my cousin’s advice and ran, but I ran to my grandma and sat down at her feet. Once again, the spirit of the little girl made herself known to me. This time, I saw her face. She had no eyes, they were just sockets, black and dark, almost like a skeleton. In my dream, I put my face in my grandma’s lap then out of no where, I felt this searing pain in my back left side. In my dream, I screamed in agony and dropped to the floor to find that I had been bitten by the little girl. The scary part out of this whole unconscious ordeal was that the sharp pain I felt in my side is what woke me up. My eyes popped open and I could literally feel teeth in my skin. I laid there with my back arched, breathing hard and heavy until I couldn’t feel the pain anymore.

As I said before, I was quite frightened and found myself frantically looking around my room as if I would find someone there. Of course I didn’t, so I comforted myself by turning on a small light and tried to get back to sleep.

I woke up this morning and looked at my side but there was not a single mark.

Now I have had some pretty weird dreams before but this is,by far, the weirdest and scariest.

I hope that you don’t think I’m crazy but if you do that’s okay! Thanks for reading ladybugs and manbugs 🙂 Feel free to leave some comments!


What a promise looks like.

The idea of a promise ring has been recently brought up in conversations between my boyfriend Chris and I. While we have not yet been together a year, neither of us object to the idea like some people would. Much like another post I made, some people would say we are moving too quickly and that a promise ring is not a good idea or we should wait… I believe this is because of what most people think a promise ring means.

I’ve always heard that a promise ring symbolizes that one is promising the other that they will get married one day (in general terms), however, I have discovered that that’s not always the case…that’s not the only meaning it carries.

I have learned of people getting purity promise rings and of mothers getting their daughters a ring that matches with hers or even fathers getting their daughters one as a symbol for love. I even have a coworker who received a ring for her 16th birthday then another for her 21st from her parents.

Promise rings can also be worn on different fingers depending on what they symbolize.

In Chris and I’s case, more than likely if he were to give me a promise ring, I would wear it on my left ring finger because we have discussed the possibility that we may marry each other one day. Which would be one reason he would give it to me in the first place. In our defense, we have known each other almost a year because we were friends before we decided to date. Also our one year will be coming up in the next few months. Anyways, to me some of the other reasons why I would accept a promise ring early on is because it could symbolize him always being there for me, always being supportive, encouraging and caring. Plus it will be a while before we actually decided to get engaged and later married so a promise would simply be like our way of expressing our love until that time comes.

Now, do I need a ring for that, no, but that’s how Chris is and of course it is a very sweet gesture. With that, I am not asking him to pay every penny on a promise ring if he decides to do that. I let him know early on that I didn’t want anything expensive. Recently, he has asked me to give him an example of something I’d like, which he knows, but he asked because I am different about jewelry, I love vintage things so I told him I would something that is unique and incorporates both of us somehow. He chose the color blue since it is my favorite and I chose a princess cut because he calls me his princess. There are a few other details but they would be hard for my lovely readers to understand without pictures 🙂 plus it’s a little early to give out some details anyways.

The point here was really to show you that it doesn’t matter what other people think or say. People are quick to judge, it’s how the world is now. I have learned that no matter what you do in the world, good or bad, people will talk and you can’t please everyone all the time.

When and if the time comes, I will gladly accept a promise ring from my loving boyfriend and wear it every single day very proudly! ❤
