The last few months have been some of the most intense times I have ever experienced, with entering #VOOM and launching BODO’s Kickstarter campaign, I haven’t had a spare minute! I’ve been running on a highly charged tank of coffee and other caffeinated products and have almost forgotten what it feels like to have a full, normal night’s sleep!
Regrettably we were unsuccessful in the #VOOM campaign, just missing out on reach the final 80, by something like 17 votes and we also missed out on our Kickstarter target of £11,000 meaning that we won’t get any capital from this crowdfunding campaign.
Ideally it would have been better if there was a little more time between the two campaigns, but that’s just the way life goes and sometimes you just have to get scribbling in that diary and make time where previously you thought there was none! The first thing to get sacrificed in situations like this is sleep, so I feel like I have earned a few nights of well needed sofa and pillow time!
I won’t be doing anything too drastic though because there is still so much work to be done with BODO. I’m obviously a little disheartened by missing out on the Kickstarter funding, but I will be focussed on making sure not to dwell on the negatives and not letting the momentum slip away.
That being said, I know if I don’t let myself recuperate at least for a few days, I am going to end up burnt out and probably suffering from some sort of dreaded Manflu – that well known side-affect when you don’t eat or sleep properly for 2 months!
Ideally I’d love to go and spend a few weeks snoozing in a hammock
on some picturesque Caribbean beach somewhere, but that isn’t likely to happen so I’ll have to settle for a few days off in England and hope that the British summer wakes up from its hibernation and remembers that it’s supposed to be here by now! If I’m lucky, we might get a few days of sunshine so I can take my young daughter to the park!
