  • I lived in London for a long while and a couple of friends of mine lived in Hammersmith. I used to visit them a lot and everytime I went home I had to walk across the graveyard to get to my bus, and every single time I would get this irrational fear ???? and I've NEVER been afraid of graveyards, on the contrary, I find them peaceful... but that place? SHIVERS. Now I get it. Def hunted.
