Don't Give Up

We all have those days. As soon as you arrive at work, you wonder if it is time to go home yet. Days like that remind me of Tuesday Jan 14, 2014.

It was one week before I would arrive at the South Pole. I had got into the routine of taking Sundays as rest days. Every day I was putting in 13+ hours a day of intense work. So it got to the point that I looked forward to Sunday more than a little kid looks forward to Christmas.

On Sunday the 12th I took a nice rest from the weeks work. Then on Tuesday I got another bad whiteout. There was a lot of new soft snow. I could not see where I was going. I had been biking across Antarctica for almost two months, and I had gotten good at just accepting the conditions and continuing on in much worse conditions than this. But this day broke me. After a couple of hours of whiteout conditions I just quit. I wanted it to be Sunday so bad, but it was only Tuesday!

What is the point? I don't know, but yeah Xamarin studio has been getting worse and worse with each new update, and today I just didn't want to deal with it anymore. Oh well, back to work!
