Dreams Of Becoming Famous
Ever since she was a little girl, Olivia Nunn has been dreaming of becoming famous. She decided that she would keep an eye on all the latest celebrity news. She spent a lot of time following news and gossip different celebrities. She liked being on top of everything that was happening to the rich and famous. It may be hard to say this, but Olivia was obsessed with the rich and famous.
A Regular British Teenager
Back then, Olivia was only a teenager living in the town of Middlesbrough in the U.K., and she felt as if her fantasies were unattainable. Although she really wanted to become famous and make it big online, she didn’t really think that it could happen. She was definitely caught off guard when all of a sudden, she was getting a lot of attention from netizens. However, it was not for the reason that she had wanted.
An Aspiring Influencer
By the time Olivia hit her twenties, she had already earned a humble following on social networking sites. She enjoyed watching tutorials on makeup and modeling. That was how she learned how to fix her hair, do her makeup, hit the ideal poses and present herself to people. She was definitely doing her best to achieve her dreams of becoming an influencer and gaining the fame that comes with such title.
Earning A Nickname
She would post pictures of herself on Instagram and Twitter, showing everyone that she was born to be a model. Her friends started to call her the “Selfie Queen,” which is a pretty suitable nickname. Aside from the fact that she posts a lot of selfies on her social media accounts, this story is also related to a particular selfie that she shared. Continue reading to find out more about this.
A Night Out
It happened one Friday night. She left work earlier than usual and got ready to go out with her friends. A memorable night out was definitely what she was going to have, she thought. With great care, she put on makeup and wore an outfit which flattered her figure. She was planning to turn heads that night, which is not unusual for a young woman who is single and attractive like her.
The Selfie That Got People Talking
At the time, she did not have any clue that she would be taking a selfie the following morning and it would make netizens do a double-take for all the wrong reasons. What did she capture in her selfie that got people talking? Why was the photo getting so much attention? For someone who wants to be an influencer like Olivia, this should be a good thing, right? However, this was not how she imagined she would become known to people.
Life Of The Party
When Olivia met up with her best friend, Grace, the latter admired Olivia for what she was wearing. Then, the two women got an Uber and set off for an exciting and fun-filled night. Olivia has always been the life of the party, so they were both looking forward to having a good time that night as they hit the town. Neither of them had any idea that something unexpected would happen the next day.
Living Her Best Life
That night wasn’t different from other nights they hit the town. Olivia danced her heart out and flirted with strangers shamelessly. She probably felt unstoppable, having had a lot of cocktails and with the DJ playing her favorite tunes. She wasn’t concerned about what was going to happen the next day and how she would feel after all the drinking and dancing. For Olivia, what was important was that she was having a great time.
The Morning After
The morning after that, Olivia woke up feeling sore all over. Her head was throbbing, which made her regret the escapades she had the night before. Still in bed, she texted her friends, thinking that her day could get better if she stayed in bed. She was under the impression that she was just a bit hungover. Little did she know that what she was dealing with was more than just the usual hangover.
A Fair Assumption
This is quite a fair assumption when it is a hangover that you are dealing with. We have all been there, haven’t we? We had had a little too much to drink the night before and, in the morning, we felt under the weather. Some might have had a headache or some muscle pain or felt nauseated. However, she had no idea that it was something worse. At that point, she wasn’t aware of this yet.
Taking A Selfie
Wanting to add some humor to her situation, Olivia took a selfie that she could send to the group chat. When she came home the night before, she didn’t take off her earrings and makeup. However, she did pull on a hoodie to feel more comfortable as she slept. This means that when she took the photo in the morning, she still had her makeup and earrings on, and she was wearing a hoodie.
She Wasn’t Alone
She took the photo and sent it to the group chat. However, Olivia had no idea that she wasn’t alone in the picture. She and her friends were all understandably hysterical when they realized this. The question is what exactly did they see in the photo? How could Olivia not notice that she was not the only one in the frame? Did she somehow capture something supernatural in her selfie?
Under The Weather
The selfie clearly showed that Olivia was not feeling well, but this was not unexpected. After all, she had had a wild night out. Looking directly at the camera, the young woman took a photo with a pained expression on her face. Aside from a headache, she was also sore from head to toe. Most people wouldn’t even think of taking a selfie if they are feeling bad, so props to Olivia for actually doing it.
An Unwelcome Guest
Little did she know that this casual snap would cause quite a stir. It turned out that there was an unwelcome guest in her photo! It was her friends who noticed it first. Olivia didn’t even realize that she was not alone in the photo until her friends pointed out the fact to her. Who was this unwelcome guest and why didn’t she notice them when she was taking the selfie?
A Dark Figure
Her friends in the group chat were all beside themselves when they saw the uninvited guest in the photo. If her best friend, Grace Graham, had not shared the story and the picture on Twitter, people would not have found out about this story. There was a shocking dark figure just a few inches away from Olivia’s face. What could that be? Many people likely think this uninvited guest is not welcome.
Since it was uploaded on Twitter, the photo has been retweeted more than 3,700 times and has garnered 47,700 likes. Thousands of netizens were in disbelief when they saw Olivia’s selfie and the uninvited guest. Thanks to this photo, she became an internet sensation really quickly without even trying. All of a sudden, Olivia was internet famous, though this was not how she imagined things would turn out for her.
The Little Intruder
So, what exactly was in the photo that revolted and enthralled thousands of people? Well, for some, they call the intruder their worst nightmare. Perhaps you do too. You see, there was something hiding in the hood of Olivia’s hoodie! Look at the photo. Do you see the little intruder? If you do, you probably understand now why so many people reacted to the picture. Who wouldn’t have a reaction to it?
Getting Attention Online
After Grace took to Twitter to share Olivia’s photo with everyone, the views and reactions quickly shot up within just a few minutes. Grace later added a comment, and in it she quoted what Olivia said to her about the whole thing. Apparently, Olivia’s reaction to her selfie was unexpected. Why was it unexpected? Because she did not react like how most people would if they were in her shoes.
A Hungover Selfie
“Nearly 24 hours later, I still cannot get over Olivia sending a hungover selfie in the group chat, and there’s a spider just chilling in her hood,” Grace shared in her tweet. So, how did Olivia take the whole thing and how did she deal with the frightening situation? Let us find out. You might be one of those people who would be surprised when you learn of her reaction.
Many people would be creeped out to find out that a creepy crawly had been so close to them. Did Olivia react this way? Well, she didn’t really whip the thing off of her. Neither did she scream her head off. She didn’t even notice it was in her hoodie until her friends pointed it out to her. However, how did she react when her friends told her about the little intruder?
An Unexpected Reaction
Well, her initial response is nothing short of invaluable. It is probably something that you wouldn’t really expect. When people see a creepy crawly near them, many would try to get away from it as fast as they can. Some people would even try flicking it off of them if it gets on their body. Olivia definitely didn’t do this, but before you find out how she reacted, you should see what netizens thought of the whole thing.
Many Twitter users shared their two cents on this frightening yet hilarious incident. Netizens somehow felt like overreacting about the photo of the unwanted guest. However, this is not uncommon when the subject is these eight-legged creatures. Many people have strong emotional responses to arachnids. However, there are some pet owners who choose to have eight-legged creatures as pets. Nevertheless, the tweet got a lot of reactions from people online.
“No can u imagine anything worse, especially hungover,” a user said. Another commented, “I would literally cry for the next 10 days.” Perhaps you find these reactions a bit too much but we never really know how someone would react in a situation until that person actually experiences it. Nevertheless, should Olivia have been scared by what happened? Was she in real danger? Or was the unexpected guest actually harmless?
An article on the website heart.co.uk reads: “There are only three species of spider in the UK that can bite a human – these are the cellar spider, the woodlouse spider, and the false widow spider. No UK spiders are poisonous, and there are no killer spiders living in the UK.” However, you shouldn’t really get all too excited. The article also reads, “However, their bites can be nasty and cause hours of pain for the victim.”
Have you ever heard of Spider Season? Well, this is not happy news for arachnophobes. Apparently, it’s common to see some spiders indoors in the U.K. in early September. As the weather starts to cool, many spiders go inside houses to look for shelter and to breed. For people in the United Kingdom, you should no longer be surprised to see the eight legged creatures inside your homes during Spider Season.
That is why this period is called “spider season.” According to Gloucestershire University entomologist Professor Adam Hart, at least “80 percent of the spiders people see are males.” He also said that it is the mating season and male spiders are looking for mates. The females remain indoors, so the influx of home-invading spiders is inevitable. Prof Hart added, “The females can be seen on webs in garages and windowsills, while the males wander around looking for chances to mate.”
What The Twitterverse Had To Say
Many people were quick to chime in on the subject after they saw the thread. Netizens have made a lot of hilarious remarks like, “It’s the fact that it’s got her trapped in there like Ryan Reynolds in Buried… nowhere to run. Can’t take down the hood, can’t move, can’t blink, nothing,” and “My soul would have left my body.” It’s now time for you to hear how Olivia responded to this.
Calm And Collected
If Olivia screamed and proceeded to bury the hoodie in the ground, no one would have blamed her. However, she did not do this. She was actually calm and collected! We don’t know about you but we think Olivia is such a badass for not minding that a spider was so close to her face. It was even in her hoodie yet she didn’t freak out. This young woman must have nerves of steel.
Nerves Of Steel
In fact, when one of her friends commented on the tweet to ask how Olivia was dealing with a ‘traumatic’ event, this was her response: “Feel fine, tbh spiders are my friends.” She wasn’t bothered at all, and we admire her for it. If we were in her situation, we would have freaked out. Who knows what we might have done? However, we are pretty sure that we wouldn’t be as unbothered as Olivia.
Experiencing Something Similar
Another user saw the tweet and recalled something similar thing that happened to him. He also took a selfie without noticing that there was a spider crawling along his sweater’s lining. “Trust me, I’ve been there,” he wrote after he shared a photo of himself and a giant black spider working its way through his collar. We wonder how he reacted when he saw the picture with the big spider.
A Common Fear
There are several studies about the fear of spiders, and one of them revealed that arachnophobia tops the list of the most common phobic disorders that are diagnosed. According to large-scale population surveys, nearly 5% of the population of the world suffers from arachnophobia. The majority tend to be women. The question is what can we do in order to keep the eight-legged creatures from creating havoc in our homes?
Do Not Panic
Even though many Twitter users found the story disturbing, there is really need to panic. According to experts, there are things we can do to make our houses ’spider-proof’ when spider season comes. This is great news, especially for arachnophobes. For the rest of us who do not suffer from arachnophobia but still get the heebie jeebies when we see the eight-legged creatures, the next few tips will truly be helpful.
Tips To Keep Spiders Away
Something that you can do on a regular basis is vacuum the house. When you vacuum, make sure that you vacuum behind and under the furniture, the windows sills and the floorboards. Aside from that, to prevent spiders from living in your home, immediately get rid of spider webs! Don’t let a cobweb sit in your house for hours or days before removing it. Even if you don’t see the spider, the creatures like to hang out somewhere they will not get disturbed. They will move if their webs are taken down and disturbed.
What Studies Say
Each year, as they try to escape the weather outside or search for a mate, eight-legged creatures start invading your homes. Studies reveal that female spiders can be seen on webs on windowsills and in garages, while the male spiders wander around in search for opportunities to mate. If you disturb their homes, you will chase them away. We don’t know about you but for us, that is reason enough to remove their webs.
Most spiders are not really dangerous for humans. While all types of spiders can bite, the fangs of these small creatures are often too tiny to pierce for human skin, so spiders can cause practically no harm. Of course, we understand that some of you can’t help feeling scared when you see these eight-legged creatures hanging around you, but just remember that most of them are harmless and that there is no need to panic.
A Spider-Free Home
Over the years, there have been different techniques that were suggested to make sure your home remains free of spiders. The primary way to do this is to keep your home clean and tidy. This limits the number of places where a spider can hide in your house. Clutter does not only make your home feel crowded. It also provides spiders the perfect space to turn your house into their home.
Using Essential Oils
Many people also recommend investing in essential oils to keep spiders at bay. Spiders do not really like strong fragrances, so things like rose, tea tree, citrus, peppermint and lavender all work outstandingly well in spider-proofing your home. Aside from preventing spiders from making your home their home, essential oils can help keep your house smelling good. This tip is really a win-win. You get rid of spiders and you can enjoy the fragrance of the oils.
Don’t Forget The Holes
During “spider season,” it is also very important that you close up any cracks which could let a spider in your house, or worse, use the space as its hiding place. We’re pretty sure you don’t want to wake up one day and realize that your home have been overrun by the eight-legged creatures. It is better to be safe than sorry, so make sure you seal up those holes.
Friend Or Foe
For most individuals, these eight-legged creatures are definitely terrifying but for a handful of people, they can be awesome pets or ‘friends’. Either way, it is always a bit scary when you see something unexpected in an unexpected space. Nevertheless, we can certainly learn something from Olivia here. The situation she was in was a bit frightening, to say the least, but she did not panic. Instead, she remained calm and collected.
