"I Don't Know Whether to be Proud, or Terrified...."

So this weekend was filled with homework and watching House of Cards, of which I finished season 2 Sunday night while foolishly attempting to complete my assignments for school; not my most brilliant of ideas, but it was difficult to stop once I got started with the show. One of the things that I really enjoy about that show are all of the quotable lines from it, especially with Kevin Spacey's character. The 2nd season ended very strongly, so I am curious to see where the 3rd season goes, and for how long they're going to string this show along. It was an excellent season, and maybe I have to watch it again, but I think that the 1st season was better, possibly, although there were more characters that I didn't like in that season, but the storyline and writing were slightly better. Anyways. I continued on with season 2 of Homeland and....well....it was good, and then really frustrating and annoying. I just do not care for the 2 main characters whatsoever; I only want to find out what happens next since I got hooked into the show, and I also want to know how they're going to pull one of their main characters back into the central plot. I could say more on it, but I just don't care enough. Work and school, those two things dominate my life currently, so its hard to find more time for the superfluous, and even still the things that matter like the news. News stories such as what's going on in the Ukraine, or in Vietnam, or how thousands of people are being starved to death by the Syrian government and no one is doing anything about it. I feel like countries used to come to each other's aid in the name of humanity, but now it's all about being politically correct; what a wussy world it has become. One of my friends from college was teaching in Norther Iraq for a few years, and during his time he came across a Jesuit priest who told him that members of his order had been forced out of Syria on pain of death (if memory serves correctly). Apparently the priest went back to help those against Assad, he was captured and executed by Al-Qaeda. I also just discovered that there is an American POW being held by the Taliban in Afghanistan, of which US government officials are "negotiating" for; he has been held captive for 5 years. How does that work? Yeah, and I'll leave it at that. Well, work continues tomorrow as does school, and all I have to do is survive it. Good night all!
