writer’s note

Heyo! I’m Ben Fridge.

I’m a university student, budding entrepreneur and minimalist in practice writing about my passion for the lifestyle here on thecollegeminimalist.com.

I’ve always had a love for words and writing since my younger years, and I hope to hone this enthusiasm by writing (what I think are) unique pieces about culture, science and philosophy blended with minimalism in mind. I am currently studying Accounting and Finance and will pursue a career in public accounting over the next few years (hence my writing here to fulfill my need for engagement).

I’m a Texas native who loves traveling (the above image was taken in New Zealand) and forest bathing and finds much rest in doing both of these things with a good book.

I hope you can take something from my writing whether that be a new interest, a little knowledge that I can pass on or a conviction to make a change.

“Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself.”

Leo Tolstoy
