To be honest, I think May went by so quickly!
I remember from my April recap that I wanted to work on procrastination, go to the gym and try some food I’ve never had. Re procrastination, I think I managed to strike quite a lot of things off my list. I haven’t updated my LinkedIn page as planned, but that’s because I’m waiting till I get a new profile picture.
And while we are on that, could you please check that your profile on LinkedIn is decent? Please avoid using awkward selfies and funny photos as your profile picture. I have a LinkedIn post planned, but only God knows when I’ll get around to that.
I did go to the gym once. I sincerely couldn’t walk properly for the whole week after that. The second time, I was all prepped and got to the bus station at 8 am, but apparently, buses don’t run till 9 am on weekends. So I went home, and that was it. I didn’t eat anything new – I tried sushi again, and I’m still not a huge fan.
I also attended an art exhibition at Tate Britain, but to be honest my friend and I didn’t quite appreciate the art. Did you see that article about a pair of spectacles on the floor of an art exhibition and people thought was part of some deep art? It was quite funny to me! Check it out here. I also met up with Berry, of BerryDakara.com. If you follow me on Instagram you probably already saw a picture of us. She was in the UK on holiday from Atlanta with her family, so we met for lunch at a nice little Indian restaurant on Bakers Street. I’m not such a fan of Indian food, but the Briyani was SO good! It just may be my first time of having Briyani – so I guess I ate something I’d never eaten before!
This month, I’m focusing on consciously being thankful for every single day, and the many opportunities we have daily. Life really is fleeting.
The news of the death of two young girls at the beach in Lagos really made me sad. I love being by the beach, but I really really avoid going too close to the water, especially as I can’t swim. For those who love to go by the water and all, someone shared a link on how to escape a riptide and I thought it’ll be great to put it out there. Please read it here.
On the blog front, I’ve managed to set up a Facebook page, and hopefully, we can hang out there more often. Please like our page! I also wrote a Law article on contract clauses for BellaNaija. It wasn’t hugely popular, but I’m glad one or two people found it useful. In light of the really bad contract between Skales* and his record label, most people agreed that having a basic knowledge of these contract terms and using a good Lawyer is a must. Nigerian Lawyers on Twitter felt rather important that day. You can follow me on Twitter: @KacheeTee.
I’m working on a new header for the blog. If you’re on our mailing list, you’ve should have seen a sample. If you are not, why? Subscribe and join the exclusive club.
It was also Mental Health Awareness Week in the UK, so for our We Interview series, I was so glad Rayo agreed to share her experience. Other than that, the more popular posts seemed to be related to Love! The post on The Social Media Mrs and Traditions for Young Couples, and Tee and I’s view on our Igbo Yoruba Marriage.
I have a couple of interviews from other inter-ethnic couples kicking off this month, but I just don’t know what to call the series. Any ideas? Please help!
We also published our 50th post and a number of people sent me messages to say they had read every single one! Thank you so much, everyone.
Gosh, I really talk a lot. I only wanted this recap to be a few sentences.
How was May for you? What are your goals for June? Wishing you all the very best, always!
pS: I don’t actually talk this much in person, so don’t be surprised when you see me and I’m all quiet.
ppS: I think I’m falling in love with flowers. I’ll stick to using flower images for these monthly recaps. The second time I ever received flowers was when I failed my driving test. The first time being my wedding day! Ha. I think I should buy myself some – or maybe someone will take a hint.

Hi Fads! Not so eventful tbh, but I guess it was okay. Happy Ramadan!. I’m sure June will be good!

I tried sushi too and I didn’t like it one bit. I’m wondering why people go and on about it. Perhaps I didn’t try the right one?Love matters always get a lot of attention. People too like man and woman mata. LolBeing committed to the gym can be challenging sometimes. Have you tried working out with YouTube videos at home? There’s a channel called Fitness Blender or something like that.I’ve not looked at my LinkedIn account for ages now. Time to get that sorted out.What else? I’m looking forward to your interviews this month. Happy new month!www.preciouscore.com
Kachee || KacheeTee.comJune 10, 2016 at 12:37
Precious! I really think people who love sushi love it and those who don’t don’t! There’s almost no middle ground. Lol. I’ve actually tried working out at home with Fitness Blender. I just always need extra motivation but I think I’ll take it up again. It’s good to get LinkedIn sorted out if you’re interested in meeting people via that medium / new career path.I’m looking forward to sharing the interviews! Once I get the name sorted out! xx

Haha! Having a good Linkedin picture is important. I guess those who slack on theirs don’t care as much. I could use a photoshoot sha. To update my photos across board. Sad news about the girls at the beach. But sushi is sooo goooooodddd! Why Kachee??
Kachee || KacheeTee.comJune 9, 2016 at 10:41
Ah! Maybe we should meet up so you show me the sushi way!!

Me and you both! I don’t talk much but when I write, I end up writing tons loools. May? May…. Hmmm that was a long time ago now we’re already almost half way through june I can’t even remember what may was like honestly. Maybe cos June is really special for us, my Lil man turns two next week so I’ve been giddy with joy.I guess may was good, yours was fabulous too guessing from your update. I’m a fitness fanatic so yaay to you going to the gym, please make it a habit its a healthy one. Cheers hun.
Kachee || KacheeTee.comJune 10, 2016 at 16:58
Loool! My husband keeps teasing me that when people meet me they will be surprised. In fairness I used to talk way toooo much as a kid. I think I talked enough for all my adult years. I know May was so far. I should so these recaps as soon as the month ends! Yay for two!! Happy birthday to him!! Many more years of God’s blessings.I’ll try to make the gym a regular. I really will… Xx
SkyJune 14, 2016 at 09:42
I’m just thankful to God that i survived the month of May, because every May in the last few years has brought me tragedies, so i’ve more or less chucked it up to being a bad month for me. I’m yet to fully recover from this year’s episode but June is here now, so hallelujah!SkyNotFancySNF Best Eight Instagram Accounts
Kachee || KacheeTee.comJune 16, 2016 at 15:06
Hey Sky!Sorry I’m just seeing this. Oh my Gosh That’s so sad to hear. I really pray things will turn around and the Month of may will be a joyous one to associate me. Not to be all personal, but if you need to talk, let me know. Happy to. Thankful for June and I pray it’s a great month for you! Amen.
