Milkround post-partum

Randomlist of going-ons in my life at LBS:

  • Helping organize London Business School Arts & Culture week – showcasing art created by LBS'ers, week-long lunch time events including free concerts, string quartets, performing arts, open-air plays culminating in the Art Investment Conference
  • A project for my Managing Organizational Behavior class with MyBnk, a charity that eradicates financial illiteracy. MyBnk organizes fun financial workshops in schools in underserved areas and sets up a school micro-bank which is administered by pupils who deposit their savings into it. My study group is helping them develop a business growth model with a focus on recruiting.
  • Excitement about upcoming Japan trek during spring break – Tokyo-Kyoto-Osaka, Bullet Trains, Temples, Kimono dress-up, Mt. Fujiyama, Sake at the "Lost in Translation" bar, Cherry Blossoms
  • A Discovering Entrepreneurial Opportunities project. My study group is developing a plan to start a restaurant chain offering healthy and inexpensive fast food and beverages
  • Serious retro-cringe about not having networked effectively
  • Serious respect for this bit of poetry by Lupe Fiasco:

    Got a daddy serving life and a brother on The Row
    Best homie in the grave, Tatted up while in the cage
    Minutemaid got his momma work like a slave


    He picked up his son with a great big smile
    Rapped every single word to the newborn child
    Then he put him down and went back to the kitchen
    Put on another beat and got back to the mission
    Of get his momma out the hood, Put her somewhere in the woods
    Keep his lady looking good, Have her rolling like she should
    Show his homies it's a way, Other than that flipping Yay
    Bail his homie outta jail, Put a lawyer on his case
    Throw a concert for the school, Show the shorties that its cool
    Throw some candy on the Caddy, Chuck the duece and act a fool
    Man it feels good when it happens like that, Two days from goin back to selling crack
