Nothing so conclusively proves a man's ability to lead others as what he does from day to day to lead himself.
Last night I was at McDonald’s with one of my friend’s and that man started to randomly ask us questions like “how old are y’all?” And “do yall have boyfriends?” At first we were like what, why is he asking us and then five minutes later he said ” You know.. I have been married to the most amazing woman in the whole world for 52 years and we’ve been together for 55. But I don’t think there’s ever going to be another year after tonight or tomorrow night” ..by this time we just turned to him and starting listening to him. “You see, my sweet lady is in the hospital right now, she has cancer. I just came back from there right now and even with all of the tubes, she still looks so beautiful. Tomorrow is certain to be her last day if it doesn’t happen tonight and Im not going to church in the morning because I want to spend every waking moment with her by her side. I love her so much.. it hurts. I don’t know what I’m going to do without her. I don’t want to be without her.” ..by this time he had tears in his eyes, got up with struggle and said ” well it was nice talking to you ladies, but I have to go home to the dark to prepare and give this cheeseburger to my puppy.” And that was it, we just listened to him, and he left. This whole day I’ve been bothered because I have been complaining about how I can’t finish some damn essay while this man is about to or just lost his whole world.
This made me cry oh god

In 1982, things were looking up for Gotanda. It was the headquarters of Sony — the hottest electronics company on the planet. A building boom of office buildings, karaoke and capsule hotels hit the neighborhood. Today, Gotanda looks much like it did in 1982.
Companies in Tokyo want their headquarters in the neighborhoods and buildings with the most status. It looks good on a website and a business card. Somewhere along the line Gotanda became unfashionable — that was it. The area hasn’t seen a lot of investment since.
In 2006, Sony moved their headquarters to nearby Shinagawa, Minato Ward (they maintain a technology center in Gotanda).
Gotanda has red light district that’s a much smaller version of Shinjuku’s Kabukicho.
The area has plenty of cheap eateries and nightlife. The general 1980s feel of Gotanda is charming enough.
The rise and fall of Japan’s 1980s economic bubble is a fascinating cautionary tale.
