The Man To Beat

I've been wanting to link to Ken's blog for a while now, but I've been putting it off because I wanted to write something about him that would be relevant and heart-felt, and it takes a while for my heart to feel something relevant. But here I am, finally, and I think I can take the plunge.
Ken Okazaki is the first man I've met with his singular genius. He has 6 kids, a fully loaded life, and a whole roster of responsibilities. But this is a man who will have a new idea for something to do, something to be, every time I talk to him. Every idea, just as intricate and insane as the idea before it. If I had to elect one of my friends "most likely to be a tycoon / millionare / magnate," it would be him. He gushes it, and it makes me weak and embarrassed.
I resist it, a lot. Sitting in an office across from him, worn out and tired about all the things I have to think about and projects that I wish I hadn't signed on for, his zest and incredible capacity to think about a million projects, and still keep his current responsibilities in proper proportion, astounded and vexed me at the same time. When my brain feels dried up as a prune, my idea of relaxation is taking a walk and zoning out, making some ramen, watching a TV show. I've seen him study, research, and experiment with his ideas in most of his spare moments.
I'm going to be reading his blog to peel back his sneaky secrets. One day, I will be as powerful and zesty as Ken is.

Wow, are you sure that's me you're talking about? I'm flattered but at the same time a tiny big embarrassed by your post because I'm simply not all that.
I can only say that I'm glad you like my new blog, and your comment encourages me to keep blogging.
Thank you!

Cаn I just say ωhat a relief to find someone that
genuinelу understаnds what they аre talking about on the intеrnet.
You certainly realіzе how tο bring аn isѕue
to light and mаκe it impоrtant.
A lot morе people reаlly need to read this аnd
undeгstanԁ this side of the story. I was surprised that you're not more popular because you definitely have the gift.

Уже в этом году популярнаяигрушка среди нескольких поколений Counter-Strike собирается отмечать свой можно сказать «юбилей» - 14 лет. Между прочим, она является одним из самых любимых шутеров, и пользуются ею сотни тысяч человек ежедневно во всём мире.

И если раньше вы не могли скачать её в Сети в свободном доступе, то сегодня, к примеру, на нашем сайте, вы сделаете это без труда. И что главное – вообще бесплатно.

Между прочим, история ее появления была очень интересной и очень оригинальной. Так, в конце 20 века двое популярных разработчиков приступили к разработкам. И мало кто знал тогда, что буквально через пару лет игра станет столь известной по всей Земле. Правда, у одного из руководителей проекта, имеющего прозвище «Гусятник», уже был похожий опыт – известная игра «Quake 2». В марте того же года игра получила свое название, а первая тестовая версия вышла уже летом. Тогда все пользователи ринулись ее тестировать, и интерес к игрушке не пропал до сих пор. А все потому, что игроки, которые так ее любят, имеют все, что нам обещали разработчики.

Теперь вы сможете скачать игру на нашем портале без проблем, без регистрации и без материальных затрат.
