Paranormal Investigation – USS North Carolina

Thanks Amanda for sharing your experience on our investigation of the USS North Carolina.

Amanda Hettinger

I’m not sure if some of you know this or not, but I am big time into all things paranormal. Mostly it’s anything having to do with haunting, ghosts, demons, and all of thee above. I’ve watched all the TV shows and watched many movies, but nothing makes me more happy than being able to go on an investigation.

I had been able to go on some investigations in the past with my mother and father ( who are apart of the Indiana Ghost Trackers ), but living so far away from them makes it difficult to be able to join them when I want ( unless it’s an awesome big investigation like Waverly Hills ). So I had been on the hunt for quite some time to join a team or be able to go on investigations. Needless to say it had taken me a while.

Do “The Vagina Monologues” Still Matter?

V-Day Raleigh

I remember my first period. I was 11 years old. I was a figure skater at the time, and I was at the rink. It was after my lesson. I remember asking my mom for a quarter so I could get a pad. It wasn’t a big deal. I had sex ed. I knew it was coming. I thought it would be a big deal, but it wasn’t. Then, when I was 18, I read, “I Was 12. My Mother Slapped Me.” It was one of the earlier monologues from “The Vagina Monologues.” You don’t really see it in the annual V-Day movement anymore. But the message is still poignant 1billion_2018_V6_blackand clear. We have all had different experiences with that “magical moment” that makes us a woman…some are positive, some not so much. If only we knew back then that it was only the beginning of experiencing “womanhood.” It’s no…

This Little Light of Mine

If you know me well, which most of you do, if you had to name two things I love it would be theatre and the paranormal. Theatre has been a part of my life for over 20 years, and it isn't going anywhere soon. The paranormal found me, so to speak, and it's been at… Continue reading This Little Light of Mine

Be the Phoenix

It's hard sometimes to swallow words when someone praises a person who hurt you so much. Of course, that someone doesn't know the back story so it's not on them.   This person took away my self-confidence and safe space. Since that person did what they did to me, I'm always looking over my shoulder,… Continue reading Be the Phoenix

Is This What Pride Feels Like?

Last night was our last rehearsal for "The Vagina Monologues" before we moved into the theatre. I've been getting told by my friends and family how proud they are of me for pulling this off and putting it together. Most people know how I feel about compliments, and I'll keep the tradition going. This production… Continue reading Is This What Pride Feels Like?

Disproportionate Effect on Women

Workplace violence disproportionately affects women, who are often subject to sexual harassment on the job. The subject recently made national news when former FOX anchor Gretchen Carlson filed a lawsuit against FOX CEO and Chairman Roger Ailes, accusing him of sexual harassment. Subsequently, additional women came forward with similar accusations against Ailes. 21st Century Fox allowed Ailes to resign – and gave…
