A writer in-the-making, a reader of poetry and stories, a listener of feel-good music and interesting conversations, and a lover of art and culture.

My name is Nicole Isabel Abriam and I'm a 20 something freelance writer and college student. I'm a senior at The New School where I'm majoring in Journalism + Design and minoring in Communication Design. I come here to write op-eds, document what I've been exploring and trying, share some of my poetry I like to occasionally write, and design processes. 

Other than my blog, I've also published works on independent zines and media companies such as LUNA Collective, The Pinnacle zine, and Adolescent Content, as well as my college newspaper The New School Free Press. You can check out my work via my portfolio.

I was born in the Philippines, raised in the suburban town south of South London, lived in Orlando for 3 years, and moved to New York City in the middle of the pandemic; since the beginning, I've never stayed in one place. I started this blog to not only share my interests and passions, but to express my ideas and perspectives, cultivate positivity and inspiration, and document my journey as a twenty-something year old navigating life. 


  1. Hey-- I was trying to change your blog button to your new one on my blog, but for some reason it's still only the old one..? Not sure if this is just a glitch in my blog or something, but just thought I'd let you know and see if there was something going on with the coding or something. Sorry to bother you, it's probably just my own glitch, but let me know if you see something and I will try again :)

  2. Hey!

    I studied art in high school...which is about as far as my art knowledge extends, unfortunately!
    I love art theory, though! And fondly studied most artistic movement chronologically.

    Which art movement would you say is your favourite? I really like fauvism.


  3. Hey Nicole! You commented on my blog a while back so I thought I'd check you out; your blog looks pretty! I am also a lit enthusiast (by lit I mean literature, although I would consider myself to be lit as well) and aspiring writer! Question: when you say you're a student, do you mean high school or college? (just curious; I've heard of 16-year-old college students so just wondering if you are one bc that would be SO COOL)

    I'm gonna go patrol the rest of your blog, but just wanted to say this About page is great! ^-^

  4. Hey Nicole!
    I saw your comment on my site (kashjain.com) about Knives and Daises. I have a few questions for you about it, but I dthink it would be better to ask elsewhere instead of cluttering your comments section. Could you DM me on instagram? My account is kashwrites. Thanks!

  5. YOU AND YOUR BLOG ARE GORGEOUS???? and your writing is slaying me hahaha <3


Thank you all for your lovely comments :) I will get back to most of you as soon as possible, so make sure you are checking back x
