I lived at the Parkside Apartments on Barton Hills Drive. Shortly after I had moved in a young man hanged himself in the apartment behind mine. The walls were very thin, and I'd often heard him and his girlfriend arguing. The apartment remained empty for a number of months. I passed by and looked inside often. A little while later a new tenant moved in and moved out in less than a month. The same thing happened at least three times, all of them breaking their lease. I began hearing voices and feeling watched in my apartment.
It escalated into screaming night terrors, and I ended up destroying my laptop one night by hurling it from the upstairs loft bedroom. I only remember hearing a voice in my head loudly ''DO IT!'' Needless to say, I was pretty upset by that, and it took me a couple of days to feel normal. I had other strange mental health issues not long afterwards as I was diagnosed with severe anxiety. After a lot of unfortunate events and bad luck came my way I decided it was time to get out. I have kept in touch with some neighbors there, and they have confirmed that the apartment still has renter issues. .

St. Edwards Park and Trail at Bull Creek is one of my usual haunts since I moved to Austin eighteen years ago. The first time I went to the park with my family I was six, and I saw a little boy following us. I wanted to go play with him, but my parents told me there was no one there. I didn't make much of it until last week when I went to go meditate by the creek. I've been coming to this park on a weekly basis for most of my life. However, this week when I woke from my meditative trance, I saw a little boy. He was just staring at me with his big blue eyes, wearing pool floaties on his arms and smiling.
It wouldn't have been weird to see a kid swimming, but he wasn't. He was lying down, in the water, right below the surface of the water. It was as if he was trapped against a glass pane. My first instinct was to help him, so I reached into the creek to pull him up, but as my hand hit the water, the ripples obstructed his face and body, and I felt nothing under the water. Shaken and a little freaked, I walked back to my car and remembered my first trip to the park. The little boy I wanted to go play with, still wearing pool floaties.

Comment by Hector: This is weird story I kind of have the same story with the boy wearing pool floaties only that I saw him when I was five in a window at Creek View Apartments Austin, TX. The kid was just waving at me but when I saw the other side of the window there was nothing.
