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 in a new relationship. It’s going really, really well. We’re more or less in the honeymoon phase, which may or may not mean that I have stayed up until past my normal bedtime with him watching Jojo’s Bizarre Adventures, Survivor, and the Eagles games at the expense of my academics the next day. When… Continue reading New Relationships and Fear

TRIGGER WARNING: Physical/psychological abuse, rape, eating disorders, general mental illness.   This is going to be a long one, so buckle in. I get a surprising amount of questions from friends and strangers alike that are very far off from the timeline of my life. One I get a lot is “so, was that sociopath… Continue reading A timeline of the last three years of my life.

I’ve dated more people than can be counted on one hand, approaching two hands. I have been through many breakups, makeups, rebounds and long lost reunions, likely much more-so than folks my age usually have. This is generally attributed to my constant craving for emotional connection, and the number of breakups attributed to bad luck.… Continue reading Breakups: Sociopathy versus Sadness

I’m going to college soon. I’m so happy. I actually got into the college that my ex is going to, and can’t go for financial reasons. A real blessing in disguise. In any case, my chapter of discussing him on this blog is coming to an end. This’ll be the last one, unless something new… Continue reading Gas lighting in Pictures: My Last

Music, Mood, Mental Illness

Music has always been known to have a visceral impact upon the body and mind. Even beyond it prompting people to dance, its upbeat melodies make folks happy, dulcet tones calm the anxious, and screaming validates the angry. For some reason, and I’ll dive into why I think this is even though I can’t know… Continue reading Music, Mood, Mental Illness

There is a quality of mine that I adore. It gets me into so much trouble and causes so much suffering, but I can’t lose it. It’s an inextricable element of my identity. I’m the one who cares more. I’m the one who always gives. And that’s quite painful. I was thinking back, the other… Continue reading On gift giving and self sacrifice

I’ve gotten a few questions (and concerns) recently about how and why I choose my article topics. No one has asked this specifically, but in addition to exploring how and why, I want to talk about why I talk so much about past relationships and gaslighting. First of all, I sometimes choose what I write… Continue reading Why I write on the topics I choose

I have one of the best dads in the world. I have some of the best friends in the world. Some very unusual things have happened to me, some of those unusual things being traumas. Those things are not normative and I will not encounter repeats of those events, of the people who have hurt… Continue reading Some silly reflections on my life, state and future
