Welcome to October. And to the last quarter of the year. How’s it been for you? I’d admit that for some reason I already feel like the year is winding down and there’s that temptation to just slow things down and hopefully pick up next year. But there’s no time like the present so I guess we’d just keep pushing.
It’s weird that I’m writing this post just after mentioning on my Instagram stories that I may be taking a blog break because I got tired of promoting the posts. But within a few seconds, lots of people messaged me saying I should take a break if I felt like it, but should always remember that they’re people who read even without any blog promotion! And they look forward to posts. That was heartwarming. Secondly, within the same time frame, I received a few responses to one of the blog columns and I knew that I’d just have to share – so guess not much of a blog break then.
Last week, I finally saw the dentist and he said everything was pretty much fine, but to brush twice daily! I know that’s the ideal and all, but do you all really brush your teeth two times a day? I’m curious.
Here are some links for the rest of your weekend

The struggle of brushing twice a day though. I brush once a day and then gaggle with a mouth wash at night. I just want to get into bed at night, I don’t have the patience to brush a second time. lol. For fashion around the world, you should check out @sikimsuseni (she’s Ghanaian) on IG.

Haha, congrats on the good news from your dentist visit 🎉I’ve never been to one, I probably should before the year runs out and no I don’t brush twice daily. I don’t think I have the energy to do that after a long day 🙁

Thank you! It is such a struggle though, and I was wondering if I’m just the lazy one. Lol!

I’m glad your dental visit went well. The struggle to brush at night though..it’s realllll. Sometimes I do, other times I’m too tired. 🙈 You should totally take a break if you feel like it, we’ll read anyway. And it was my first time of hearing of CGF through that interview, had to bookmark the link and read a few. Totally worth it. Ohh and yes to This Is It!! I hear it’s just two seasons though and it’s a wrap. I’m crying already. LolHave a great week ahead.

Just caught up on This Is It episode 2. No way it’s just 2 seasons! 😱. Oh dear. I guess it’s better than dragging it too much.

Kacheetee, please don’t stop blogging. You have inspired me in so many ways. I check your blog almost every day for new content. We have a lot in common-lawyer, blogger, living in diaspora etc. You are older than I am yet I see you as a role model. I’m already considering finding ways to finance a master’s program because of the post you wrote on Cambridge. I have actually shared your content on my Facebook page in the past. And just this morning, I made a mental note to tell a younger relative who is a law student to follow your works. Blogging can seem like a thankless job, but trust me, it does pay in terms of the impact one can make in people who are virtual, in more ways than one, strangers.
