This is for the men who are like me, and not men who like me.

My name is Ted, I live in the 2017 City of Culture, Hull, in Yorkshire, England. I’m approaching 30, and I’m perpetually working on a project – this blog and my life being the latest of projects I’ve got on my hands.

I work with the city’s homeless in a hostel setting, and have previously worked in a mental health hospital. People ask me what I want to do in the long run, and that’s just find some meaning to life.

I am homosexual, and chubby. I have a fairly bad problem with anxiety at the moment, brought on by a recovery from depression and thinking I am going to slip back into that way of life, but I’m keeping my head above water.

This blog is about everything that I am, that someone out there might be able to relate to. The odd post on how I’ve decorated my house to become a home, some recipes from time to time, but largely it’s about dealing with life and living in this city.
