Below is my final project for my upper level philosophy course- The Ethics of Diversity- that was just graded. I replaced the name of my old school in it, quite honestly because my parents told me to. I would have liked to include it. Ah well! Enjoy. _________________________ Olivia Epley Special Topics in Philosophy: The… Continue reading The Therapeutic Day School and Diversity in Special Education

I’m grateful for my parents, and they’re grateful for me

I'm grateful for my parents because they challenge me. They don't always tell me what I want to hear. My father, in particular, knows when to push me and when to comfort.   He didn't always. For a long time, I wouldn't characterize either of my parents as at all effective in facilitating my treatment.… Continue reading I’m grateful for my parents, and they’re grateful for me

I'm fed up. I'm having an amazing time at Temple. I just broke some novice records at the debate tournament I finished today. After getting up at 7:00 to beat three teams from NYU, I headed home, ready to nap. Instead, I saw that my abusive ex, K, has a girlfriend who made yet another… Continue reading Message to my Past Life: Leave Me Alone

It’s been a while. Sorry for the absence. I’m not all that sorry, though. I’ve been having the time of my life. I started at Temple University about a month ago and, while things aren’t perfect, they’re pretty damn close to it.    I devour my classes and enjoy doing homework. One of my classes… Continue reading College Update: Closeness and Sharing

If you know me, you know that I rarely watch television or movies. I know, they feel like the kind of thing Olivia should be interested in, especially considering how much free time I’ve had, but during my concussion era I couldn’t watch screens in that way and otherwise, I just feel antsy and anxious… Continue reading Mindhunter, Sociopathy and Psychopathy

The Power of Not Posting

Today, I filmed a video. It was an hour long. It detailed the entire timeline of what my emotionally abusive, sociopathic ex did, from the moment I first saw him and remarked on his visual similarity to Harry Potter to the last time we communicated. I got it all out there. My intent was not… Continue reading The Power of Not Posting

3 Things I Learned from Graduating High School in 6 Years

Olivia

Founder of Millennial Girl, Interrupted, a senior in a small Connecticut high school. I've been through many treatments and recoveries and am eager to share the lessons I've learned!

Four years of high school, four years of college, maybe a couple years or so of grad school. It’s a progression most high school students I know don’t spend much time considering the necessity of, as unspokenly expected as it is. It’s a progression that my deviation from has resulted in a painful degree of… Continue reading 3 Things I Learned from Graduating High School in 6 Years
