Disclaimer: My beliefs aren’t set in stone. Everything I post on my website is subject to change :)
I’m Ethan Benjamin, a Computer Science student from Canada. I write about aspiring to live a good life, technology, meaning, and books.
Why does this website exist?
I decided to pursue writing when I realized I needed to do things that are important to me. My goal is to create a collection of thoughts that expresses who I am.
The School of Athens by Raphael is the first painting I fell in love with. It is dear to my heart.

Core Values & Beliefs:
- Pay it forward: People in my life have guided me through many challenges and uncertainties. Paying it forward is the best way to help others and appreciate what people have done for me.
- Comparison is the thief of joy: The internet has made it so much more convenient to compare ourselves to one another. Recognizing this fact is liberating.
- People make the world special: The best moments I have are correlated to the friends that I experience it with. I live to connect with people in meaningful ways.
- The most fulfilling experiences are difficult: Hardships and challenges are what make achieving something fulfilling.
This is what I look like:
