As an English student, it goes without saying that I spend a lot of my time reading books. This year, however, was actually a little different; there were surprisingly few novels on my reading list – but like last year I’ve compiled my top five set texts from my second year at York.

I’ve blogged on and off in this online space for over five years now. Initially it was fundamental in teaching me to write and helping me find my voice; more recently I’ve worked to settle it into something that works for me long-term. Last year I thought a lot about values, and why I blog, and that process culminated in a rebrand to¬†Lightly We Go. But it didn’t quite get the chance to go further than that after January of this year, when second year took over and it stopped being a priority. Now, though, my priorities are starting to shift.

I talk about my sister, Rosa, a lot; my usual joke is that telling the stories of what she gets up to halfway around the world makes me seem way cooler. But for a couple of weeks in the middle of summer, I finally got to share a bit of her life in Berkeley, California, and come away with some fun stories of my own. We spent days wandering the hills of San Francisco; crossed the Bay to check out Marin County; made our way to Land’s End to paddle in the Pacific; spent a day in Davis where Rosa first lived in CA; and even navigated to Muir Woods via public transport.
