Hi, my name is Nicole Ricken, and I am a 21 year old human being who is passionate about a great number of things. One hat that I wear is ‘writer’, so some years ago I decided to create an informal, public space to share some of my work.

I’ll admit, there isn’t a lot of rhyme or reason to what I post here. For example, there is a recipe in the middle of my “deep thoughts”. (Somehow, I think it belongs there.)

Ultimately, this blog is for me. But also for you, internet stranger. My life and perspective have shifted so much since I first started posting, but I’m going to keep my old posts up, as markers of my personal evolution. I’m not going to edit them either! I do hope you enjoy what you find.

All my love.
