With this issue Home, I have tried to pick songs that for me, encapsulate some of the ideas around home, and of what home really means. Your teenage years, moving into your twenties, really are the most transitional years of your life: relationships, careers, where you live, who you live with – all of which can change quite sporadically. To pin point a specific place that you call “home” is so difficult at this age, as it means such a multitude of things.

Home is where your family are

is where your friends are, with your support network, and where your go-to girl gang are

is in your lovers arms

is a memory, a place to return to when you’ve lost your way and need to find yourself again

is diving headfirst into passion

is where you make your first cup of tea in the morning

is where you laugh and where you cry

is where the heart is.
