Damn man, I really hope you recover quickly man. That's no joke. I have been dealing with rotator cuff issues for the last year but don't want to go to the doctor because I can't afford to be out of work for my family's sake so I just deal with the pain. But, anyways, I've had a decent year. Learned a lot at my job and am pretty much the head technician in express, and was asked to be promoted to main shop technician. Unfortunately, my financial position doesn't allow for the change at the moment so I have to continue changing oil for now, but I'm content.
Other than that, it's been alright. Still have the same roof over our heads and have food on the table every night so I guess that's good. Been helping my mum out for the last couple of years since dad passed and overall it has been... Alright. Been going back and forth on deciding whether or not I want to enlist in the air force to start a career in aircraft mechanics. Cars have become boring and annoying to me. I can't deal with shitty customers anymore and honestly I'd like to do something worth getting up in the morning. Need to start cutting back on fatty foods and hit the gym.
I'm in Tulsa, OK now. Was hoping to escape the cold weather for a bit but it was one degree warmer than NY when I landed. Looks like it might get up into the 70's today and tomorrow, but Friday on my travel day home, it's supposed to be freezing rain. So hopefully there are no delays.
So far, the biggest thing I have learned about Oklahoma is that everyone loves gravy.
I've noticed that the altitude thing can be off if you have just opened snapchat. There are no weather sensors on the phone so the temp, etc is based on your location and gets temperature data from the Weather channel. Right from their website
The answer to the question “How does snapchat know the temperature?” is simple. Snapchat has teamed up with the weather channel to allow snapchat users to add the temperature at the location in which the snap was taken. Snapchat sends the geograpic location of the snap to the weather channel and they calculate the temperature for the temperature filter to add the temperature to the snap."
The phone does probably have an altimeter, since it likely has GPS capabilities. But, just like when you first open your GPS, it takes a few mins to get your location accurately. I've seen the same wacky altitudes before.
