About Ethan

 

My name is Ethan. Pleasure to meet you.

Thank you for visiting GreyMatterLeaks. I’m Ethan.

For those of you who don’t know me, I've lived in North Wales all my life, and I have spent the last few years writing about my experiences and thoughts on mental health, love, family, various existential crises, my deep-seated wanderlust and and a life spent trying to understand the world around me.

Following an extremely traumatic event in 2017, I was faced with PTSD and the eventual loss of my job in June 2018. To fill my time, I studied to become a Teacher of English as a Foreign Language (TEFL); a course I passed in October of the same year.

Writing and travelling are the two things that bring me a sincere sense of purpose. The TEFL qualification is there for when I’m ready to hit the road again, but for now I’m hoping that you’ll come to know me through my words. I’ve got nothing but time at the moment, and I believe that we each owe a debt of responsibility towards each other and the world. I’m working towards trying to make myself a better person, and the world a better place.

With this is mind, here you will find my thoughts, laid out in all their truth - good and bad. 

These are my "GreyMatterLeaks".
