I'm Ben. I am 18 years old and attend St. Olaf College in Northfield, MN, where I study mathematics and philosophy. I am also interested in music, computer science, politics, and many other things. On this page I mostly reblog posts I like, but you will find some original material as well. I hope you enjoy it!
I am pretty busy here, and don’t have as much time to post on Tumblr regularly. So I thought I would write an update. Things are really good here at St. Olaf. Campus has been stunningly beautiful the past few weeks, but now the leaves have fallen. I woke up this morning to snow falling and it makes me excited for winter. I love my classes, especially linear algebra and philosophy. Next semester I hope to take Great Conversation (essentially classics), modern philosophy, formal logic and discrete math. Orchestra has been great. After a very successful orchestra tour, we are now preparing music for Christmas Fest in about a month. I’ve started playing a 250-year-old English cello, owned by the school, which is super fun. The food is really good, and I haven’t eaten meat in over two months. I don’t miss it. I also have a boyfriend now. We’ve been dating for about a month and a half. His name is Kyle. We spend a lot of time together, mostly in the library, but we’re also getting more familiar with Northfield, the Twin Cities and surrounding area. So things are really good here.
