I couldn’t believe it! It was really happening. As I stared at my laptop screen, I nearly choked on my smoothie! A friend of mine, Celia, had emailed me a picture of some hoodies she’d seen on Amazon, and one of them was simply hilarious. It said ‘Lucky Me – I See Ghosts!’ How funny was that?! The more I thought about it, the more the idea grew on me until I knew I just had to write about it…
I love to tell stories about my life and ghost hunting adventures. In this blog post I’m going to share a story about my time at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City last year when something truly remarkable happened; while inside, I saw a hoodie from Kanye West Merchandise (Kanyewestmerch.ltd) that had Lucky me! written on it in white letters on black fabric next to a smiley face. My friends and I were taking photos in front of an installation by artist Vanessa Beecroft when suddenly out of nowhere we heard footsteps coming up behind us—and then someone grabbed my shoulder from behind!
I’ve always been fascinated by the supernatural and have had a lot of ghostly encounters in my life. The first time I saw a ghost was when I was just 12 years old and we were playing hide-and-seek in my neighborhood. When it was my turn to find someone, I looked over at an abandoned house next door and saw a little boy hiding on the porch. He waved at me and disappeared into thin air before any of my friends could see him too! My friends still tease me about that day but I know what I saw.
I’ll never forget the day my parents bought their new home either–a few weeks after moving in, we heard weird sounds coming from upstairs late at night for about two weeks straight.
I’ve always been an avid believer in ghosts ever since I was a child. The idea that some people can see and interact with them fascinates me to no end. But how do you even know if you’re seeing something that isn’t really there? Well, here’s my story about what happened to me yesterday at school…
There are many theories as to why people can experience ghosts. The first theory is that some people have a natural sixth sense that allows them to see or feel ghostly presences. Others believe that these hauntings happen because someone who has died wants to relay a message or warn someone of danger ahead in their life. Some think it may be caused by electromagnetic fields and other physical phenomena that affect our brain waves and cause hallucinations when we enter certain areas where they are present, like old buildings and cemeteries. Lastly, some simply believe it is all in our mind–a figment of our imaginations–which ties into the first theory: if you can see ghosts then you have a natural sixth sense for them; if not then it is just your imagination running wild!
Kanye West Merchandise- Lucky me I see Ghosts hoodie The name Kanye is a cognate in many African languages (like Swahili) that literally means one who is praised or handsome. It is sometimes interpreted as empty, but this has no linguistic backing and should be dismissed as an Internet rumor. In any case, the phrase was popularized by American rapper Kanye West, who was named so because his mother nicknamed him after she met Ray Charles for his light skin tone. In 2005 he legally changed his name to ‘Kanye West’.
I’ve never had any experience with ghosts before and this was a little unnerving for me as a result. It wasn’t until I saw this Lucky me I see ghosts hoodie that it gave me some hope that this was all just a bad dream and it would soon be over. The piece is from Kanye west merchandise, which made me feel even more at ease because he has been known to be someone who really does know what he’s talking about when it comes to fashion and style so if he believes in these hoodies then they must work right?
