The past is remembered. Live in the moment. The future is in you.

Closing in on the year.
Here is my highlight list of 2016 (Chronological order from top to bottom. Many blog posts that I have written about are linked below as well.):
Sounds depressing but it is true.
Why I am writing about this? Many famous known celebrities have died this year.
For a very long time, we have watched the most famous iconic people successfully act, perform, and entertain for us. It is goodbye. Most importantly, they will be remembered. Thank you all for everything.
A heads-up reminder: Become a better person on the coming new year. (A yearly traditional fresh start.)
Then again, I can become a better person anytime of the year. (There is no "perfect" time to wait for change.)
Ever since my sister passed away in 2003, my parents and I do not celebrate Christmas as much as before.
Photo shown below was taken in East Meadow, NY. (Some time in 1992 or 1993.)
First and foremost, we always visit my sister's gravestone. We have lessened our Christmas spirit.
Photo shown below is my solo Christmas greeting card from me to you.
Wait, I must describe greeting card before you see it.
Again, I am a lonely blogger. Coldest weather of the year. (I am freezing cold with my arms crossing.) Last night, I bought this $23 sweater at Target. (I did not rip the price tag. That way, I can return it. Shhh.) Importantly, I really wanted an ugly Christmas sweater. (They were all soldout.) Obviously, my greeting card says it all.
Here is my ugly Christmas card to you.

Plans for this weekend:
...to connect with,
like this video clip from TV series, "Roswell," shown below.
(I am sitting and writing this blog post alone as usual.)
I am a lonely blogger. I am being a needy, hopeless romantic.
My awesome new friend was inspired by my blog about personal life stories and experiences.
He started on his own blog.
From the words of NBA sideline reporter/broadcaster, Craig Sager. (I agree with his quote.) At 65 years old, he died today from acute myeloid leukemia. (He ignored cancer treatment.) Importantly, he chose to live and die naturally.
Why am I writing about him?
In basketball, I am more of a first-pass player. (I am passive, then.)
I confidently rely on driving towards the basket than taking a jump shot. (I always take advantage of my speed and quickness.)
