The House of Hale 2013: Pt 5

13 Where did most of your money go?
Between the baby, the house, and my therapy. Lol. We also paid off a lot of bills. Generally we were pretty responsible with our finances this year, which was quite a surprise.

14 What did you get really, really, really excited about?
What did I NOT get really, really, really excited about this year? If I had to pick one thing I would probably say that finishing two NaNoWriMo events, and having a piece of my writing actually published. Oh well I guess that’s technically two things, but I consider them one since they both have to do with writing.

15 What song will always remind you of 2013?
I spent hours pouring over all of the music I bought this year trying to find a good song that summed up just about everything going on. Really there isn’t just ONE, but several each representing a different phase of myself as the year wore on. None of them are really new, they’ve all been haunting my library for ages. I think why they really stuck with me this year is because they took on a completely different meaning. I could sit here and explain each and every small personal significance they have for me, but if I did that I think it would be taking away part of the beauty. Songs mean a million different things to a million different people. I don’t want to be all: “Here’s this song, and this is what it means” ruining the meaning they have for others.

Hurt Vol. 1 and 2 both complete albums. There were a few songs that stood out more than others, but I’m just going to leave it at that.
