I still use couple of generated passwords I got in a couple of broswer games like 10 years ago. They're quite hard to remember.
I also use different 3-4 number combo after them for every site and dot, slash or underscore between those.

Make it as long as possible with at least one of each: capital, number, and symbol. Make it easy to remember.

Length is the most important aspect of making the password secure. What capgamer said. ^
... even on Earth Mode.

But they said it wasn't the length that matters!

I usually use keyboard patterns. Something like:


Just have to remember the shape.

i make them stupid long with lots of symbols and alternating caps. since there is no way i'd remember all of them i put them in a spreadsheet that i store on an encrypted hard drive.

Make something big, but easy for you to memorize it. ^^

I just came up with a short easy to remember sentence and leetspeaked it. I'll just add a bit of variation between sites, sometimes I'll capitalize it, throw a period or exclamation mark or something at the end, stuff like that. It's as secure as it needs to be, nobody's going to guess it, if somebody wants to bruteforce it they're going to bruteforce it, and if I get keylogged then complexity doesn't matter.
Every time I try to go where I really wanna be it's already where I am, 'cuz I'm already there
