Honestly speaking, this is the first time that i encounter this word. I’ve search it to the internet and it says, eerie means, unnatural, unearthly, mysterious, frightening, etc.
Maybe we are always felt strange and weird, when we encounter things for the first time.
I’ve been there, as always. Because of fun of trying new things in life, i always feel like that; frightened and scared at first because of unfamiliarity of things, even at place.
But that’s all natural feelings, i think, it’s usual and common for all of us. The very important thing is, we at least tried, and overcome the strange feeling, and until we used to it.
