Default Hmm, am i being paranoid?

Firstly, i live alone with the exception of my dog, but one day about a week ago i came home and noticed that my webcam was unplugged from the computer. No biggie, i always unplug it out of fear that someone can hack into it and film me while i watch porn (which i'm swearing off after watching that TED talk). Anyway, i prepare to plug it back in (because i use the mic on it for google calls and save cell minutes) and notice my external HDD is plugged in where the webcam normally would be. The problem with this is I NEVER unplug my external HDD, and its always plugged into one of the lower USB ports, while the webcam in one of the top USB ports.

Now, its possible i could have forgotten i unplugged it, but this feels very unlikely as i never unplug it and if i did i would plug it back into a lower port.

Today, right now actually, before i leave, i'm putting on my shoes and hear this beep noise in my room, but i can't figure out where its coming from, not to mention the beep begin just as my speakers began making an odd sound, as if the volume were really high, when it wasn't, almost like i'm being listened to.

Idk dudes, something feels really off. I just can't imagine why anyone would want to spy on me or plant anything in my house, i barely even know anyone in my neighborhood.

Not at all. The most i do is have theories i share online. What puts me on edge is about a month or so back, i woke up in the middle of the night to find two pit bulls barking at my bedroom window and running around my back yard. I later found out they had dug their way into my backyard from a neighbors house (two houses down, which means they go through one yard just to get to mine;i never speak to this neighbor). The odd thing is i learned that they've always had these two dogs (i've lived here a little over a year), yet the dogs only began digging under a fence into my yard recently (its happen twice, i've since covered the area they dig under so they can't get in), but when they did get into my backyard, they'd always end up at my bedroom window, and i have a fairly big back yard, which makes me wonder if they have been taught to target me.

You're a self-described loner. Those are the people "they" observe the most. I wouldn't be surprised if your dog was in cahoots as well.

Well if you feel something is not right..trust your instincts. On a day off I would go through my house. Are you also hearing voices? Just asking. But check out your place. Before I leave the house I would take note of things and see if anything changes when I get back.

You want to know what I think? The reptilian Illuminati are getting ready to grip their disgusting claws into our very own freedom, into our LIVELIHOOD. The New World Order will finally make itself public in a satanic blood ritual beginning tomorrow. 2013 will usher in a new age, an age wherein our lizard masters do not fear to show their true face in our government, in their corporations, their institutions. We will be made slaves to their master race. You are only witnessing the beginning, hearing the whispers beneath the surface of what is to come. These are the first signs, the first signs of humanity's end at the hands of this unforeseen extraterrestrial threat. Find somewhere to hide, find your loved ones, and be ready to join the resistance. Futile as it may be at this point. Throw away your cell phones, your laptops, your hand held devices, your video games, your flashy NIKE shoes. They are all simply elements that they use to CONTROL YOU.

Or, it could just be your head ****ing with you and your house being a little creaky in the night. Either way, I recommend laying off the good shit for a couple days.

If you spend a lot of time alone your mind will find ways to occupy itself, which is what you are doing now with this silly conspiracy thoughts.

Nah, no voices. But i am going to clean through the whole house and set things up when i leave the house so i can tell if someone has been there when i'm gone. I wish dogs doubled as recording devices.
