ROASTED COCONUT SEA SALT BROCCOLI+Chinatown Firecracker 10K Venture

Ahh so only one more week until spring break! Chugging through this last week of midterms…aka crunch time studying for Corporate Finance! Bond Valuation, Stock Valuation, and that ever pesky Net Present Value equation is taking over my brain!! But alas it shall be over in due time..patience Court, patience 🙂

Anyways I wanted to share some pictures from the Chinatown Firecracker 10K event held a few weeks ago in February–can you believe it’s been going on for over 30 years?! It’s such a wonderful event full of live performers all day, tons of free food and products galore! Plus an exciting run in a great part of Downtown LA, what could get sweeter? Hmm….MAYBE the Asian Shave Ice and Chocolate covered bananas my classmates and I were selling to raise money for charity? I’m currently in the midst of completing my Business Admin. Emphasis in Entrepreneurship, and we were $50 seed money by our professor to start a business venture. The team who has the biggest return on investment wins! (all proceeds donated to NFTE, the Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship) My team and I did not foresee any moneymaking potential on the USC campus over that weekend, so we decided to take our venture outside the campus bubble. Here is a little slideshow of some pictures from our hot and sweaty day! ENded up profiting about $200…not as high as we expected…darn you free food and complimentary beer garden!! 😉

I was originally intending on running the Firecracker event before the class challenge was assigned to us. Here’s a pic of me all jazzed up and absolutely LOVINGGGG my Nike Free TR Twists! #makeitcount al day everyday! I think I blogged about them already, but I honestly just cannot get enough of them. The flexible diamond grooves in the footsoles really make a difference when it comes to my lateral movements.

so comfortable!

Here’s a picture of another new obsession of mine….BROCCOLI ROASTED WITH COCONUT OIL AND SPRINKLED WITH SEA SALT! Holy mother this tastes AMAZING! And it’s so easy! Just wash broccoli crowns (which I got for a sweet deal of 49 cents per lb…yes, I pounced on this!) and chop them up into florets. Take a spoon and scoop out some coconut oil, hold it over the stovetop flame to melt, and then pour it all over your florets that have been spread on a foil sheet. quickly sprinkle with sea salt (finely ground) and toss. Pop that into the oven at 425 degrees for maybe 15 minutes and ou’ve got ourself some absolutely phenomenal broccoli!

Alright I should get back to studying for my Finance midterm! Good luck to every other college student studying for midterms 🙂 WE CAN DO THIS!
