So I’m writing this with a blocked nose and a very heavy head. I should probably be sleeping but I can’t stop thinking - a curious affliction of mine. Having slept for 15 hours straight the previous night though I think I've earned myself some reprise.
It’s funny what being sick does to you. It means you have to drop everything and just sort of sit down and think about things. And I know that for me being sick sends my mind into think-overdrive.
I'm thinking about my diet, how untidy my apartment is, the order that I'll play video games, when I can get back to work, what kind of dog I’d like to buy in the future, world poverty, politicians. And not in that order.
I even dreamt last night that I was back in high school yet struggling to get to class on time. You know the feeling when your legs do not move in dreams? That's the one. Lunch was a great time, however, and I spend it trading cards in some imaginary game. Think of it as like a cross between Pokemon and a mobile app called Battle Camp - it was pretty cool indeed.
The dream ended with the school getting flooded, swimming through the hallway underwater for several minutes, and ending up in a field where we couldn’t believe what had happened. At which point I woke up. How strange is that?
I'm not sure whether it is the flu or the antibiotics or a combination of the both. My mind just goes on this endless journey that dances between pointless thoughts and a few overlooked insights. It’s happened before and I’m sure it’ll happen again. I hate feeling sick!
At least it’s given me time to actually think about a lot of important things. And that’s been good. I haven’t had quiet time like this in probably a year and I’m being truthful here. In sitting down and thinking about myself, I’ve been able to work out that I need to tidy my apartment, work out a diet and get fit (look after my body). Among a number of other thoughts that are probably too introspective and cumbersome to put here.
This past month has been a whole lot of work. JellyChip is coming together beautifully and I’m beginning to get very excited by what we are creating. From its design, to its functionality, to its standout message. There’s an investor trip coming up and the marketing plan is ready to go. These are good times.
We obviously realise now that we're in too deep - but that’s the best part. I love doing things that are greater than me and I would struggle if I couldn't do that. We’ve got a busy couple of months ahead and all roads lead to Rome. Come and join us!
