Holiday Tradition

The holidays are just around the corner. It's the best time of the year for sure. But the holidays can go by really quickly. I mean, it's going to be Halloween on Monday already! Pretty soon Thanksgiving will be here and we'll all be eating Turkey with our families. Then just like that we'll be opening up presents on Christmas and ringing in 2017 on New Year's.

Some families have holiday traditions. I want to start a holiday tradition where we help out the less fortunate. Everyday is a struggle for each one of us but at least we have food on our tables and a roof over our heads. There are just way too many people on the streets hungry and freezing. We shouldn't let this go on. Not on our watch.

With the power of the internet we can achieve so much in so little time. We can use this power to help others. We don't even have to spend our own money. Did you know that there are free donation sites out there right now that you can visit everyday and donate for fr…

Fashionably Late

I'm a guy that likes to look and feel good but I've never been the type of guy that someone would label fashionable. I've rarely worn fashionable items but when I do it's always a belt buckle or a money clip instead of something like a cuff link. That's about to change pronto because I've realized that I'm in my 30s and to get the kind of respect that a grown man deserves from society he needs to be able to dress well.

I am fully aware of all the men's magazines out there like GQ, Playboy, and Maxim that teach men how to dress. I used to read them until I found out how ridiculously expensive it is to look good. My mother always advises me to buy a few but expensive clothes that's made to last. Thanks to her I own a couple of really expensive suits to wear to work. I really need to get wearing them more often. I also own a pair of nice dress shoes. Though I've been kind of wearing one of them out.

Anyways, I'm not going to go through my entir…

Start of the Season: Rangers Edition

The Rangers are 3-2 in their first 5 games.

The Rangers played on the road against the Stanley Cup Champion Blackhawks in their season opener and came away with a great win.

Then they went to Columbus to start their home and home series against the Blue Jackets and beat them there 4-2.  Then the Rangers travelled home to New York for their season opener and defeated the Blue Jackets again 5-2. The Rangers were 3-0 and the sensational rookie from Sweden, Oscar Lindberg, had scored in all three games to start the season.

Then came the consecutive losses.

The Rangers outplayed the Jets for most of the game.  Winnipeg was very effective in their scoring chances behind their goalie Hutchinson's 41 saves. The Rangers attacked the net all night but Hutchinson deflected every shot but 1. The final score was 4-1.

In Montreal, the Rangers were shutout 3-0 against the 4-0 Canadiens (6-0 as of this post). Henrik Lundqvist made it close with his goaltending abilities but in the end the Rangers…

Labor Day

Today is Labor Day. For those that wish they were at work instead of being off you can ignore this post. Otherwise, read on for further enlightenment.

There's 168 hours in a week. If you sleep 8 hours per night then there are 112 waking hours in a week. Subtract the number of hours you dedicate to your job and commute. How many hours is left?

In my case that's 57 hours. Depending on how you look at it, it's either a lot or a little.

They say it takes 10,000 hours to master something. If that's true then maybe it's a good idea to find something enjoyable, become an expert at it, and then get paid for it.

Chances are you are already an expert at something but it's not the kind of expertise that people would buy or pay for in particular. Maybe your strengths are in music, painting or the arts.

Perhaps you've already created a masterpiece that world hasn't appreciated it yet. Many prominent artists have died before their creative works became famous and apprecia…

Writing

The only way to get better at writing is to write. I am writing everyday to perfect my craft. What is my craft? It's sports writing. I grew up loving sports because of my mom and I want to be a writer because of my dad so naturally I want to be a Sports Writer. It is going to be a long and tough journey and that's ok. I just got to keep chipping away at it. Sports writing is a hobby right now that I am passionate about that I don't mind working hard at. The way to get better is learning from my mistakes. I know I am making mistakes constantly and realizing that it's ok is part of the process. I am growing and developing as a writer. I want to learn from the best writers so that I can be the best sports writer I can be. It would be nice to make a living at this. I want to realistically read three books per week. And write three hours for each book read. Writing keeps my thoughts from being stuck inside my head. Writing gives me an opportunity to verbalize my feelin…
