I’m back again with another video, this time filmed on my iPhone because I’m a dumb dumb and deleted all my footage from my Camera camera. I’m answering questions I commonly get now about PTSD and my traumatic relationship experience. Thanks for watching, and sorry for the lacking of makeup, I left my concealer at…

Below is my final project for my upper level philosophy course– The Ethics of Diversity- that was just graded.

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…

Please do take all I write here with a grain of salt. I’m just a philosophy major and I’ve not yet taken a class, but I do pride myself on being able to compound information and spit it out cohesively rather well, as well as being able to logic things out, so to speak, passably…

Yes, I’m on Reddit. Yes, I’m a bit ashamed. I like to feebly remind folks that Serena Williams’ (husband) invented Reddit, so it can’t be all bad! I originally joined it a few years ago to follow the conversation surrounding my favorite TV show, and one of the only I watch, Survivor. I recently used it…

There are a few things that have really made the difference in the fact that I haven’t once seriously thought “I want to die” in four months, or a record for me.
