Buckles! But that isn't anything new. More black back in the wardrobe.

Health care, gay rights, women's rights, and some environmental. (stolen from Jen... we clearly think alike)

If we are saying celebs... Neil Gaiman If not I'm not picking fave's :)
38. Tell us a valuable life lesson you learned in 2013:
As short as money is I need to make sure and do spend some of it to make time to go out with friends or I get sad and hermit. I need to realize that life it about experiencing it and go do that.
39. Quote a song lyric that sums up your year:
picked one that I need to remember... keep on trying to live like this. Take control, don't just roll over and take it when bad things happen..
"Doubts will try to break you
Unleash your heart and soul
Trouble will surround you
Start taking some control
Stand up and deliver
Your wildest fantasy
Do what the fuck you want to
There's no one to appe-e-ease"
Panic Station, by MUSE
