I’ve Finished Season 2 of GoT, Here Are My Thoughts

This show just keeps getting better and better, finally the action shows it’s face and I’m getting excited! After making it through the first season and then experiencing the second season, I can now tell why people became such fans of this series on HBO. Targaryen’s, Dragons, open rebellion, and White-walkers, oh my!

The key features I took away from this Season

Even though some choices were the wrong choices, I still see the passion and how honorable this house is. I HATE the Lannister’s, the power hungry, money mongering miscreants.

I especially hate Joffrey Baratheon (really Lannister, because of Jaime and Cersei, brother and sister, having an incest relationship during and after the late king Baratheon’s death). They are the worst, and Joffrey is nothing but a coward who beats women and has a sadistic appetite.

The Targaryen’s I’ve come to respect. After Daenerys’ brother was killed, the rightful queen became someone I admired, as she has a kind heart. We know the mad king was, well, mad…and we know her brother was a piece of work as well…but Daenerys’, she’s quite different.

Being the mother of dragons and keeping what remained of her khalasar after her husband Khal Drogo passed due to an infection from a knife blade breaking his skin, we learn that she is compassionate about her people.

This makes me believe that she would be a good queen. Now what I hope to see, (and I know some of you know if this happens or not, don’t tell me…I’m still watching it long after you all have more than likely finished it…) that the Stark’s help out Daenerys Targaryen in taking the capital, Kings Landing, in exchange for being free and King of the Northlands.

In Conclusion

I know there is a lot more to this storY, and I have another 6 seasons to go before being caught up to where the show is on this day (May 10, 2019) but the story is very enriching. I look forward to seeing what season three brings forth.

And if you all are wondering what house I would stand with, it would be House Stark, mainly because the characteristics displayed by the Stark’s are what my own characteristics are, honorable, caring, and family is number one.

I would definitely assist House Targaryen though, as long as they would leave my house alone and give me the freedom I would be seeking under House Stark. Also, I believe Tyrion Lannister is a good man, I don’t think he deserves what the rest of the Lannister’s deserve.

And, besides, Tyrion was and amazing Hand of the King for the short time he was, he exiled the man responsible for backstabbing Lord Stark, and I’m glad about that.

Well I’ll let you know my thoughts on season three once I finish it, thank you for reading this far! I appreciate it!

  • At it again! Third Shift

    Had to do another third shift again. When will I be on my regular schedule again? I’m always flipping around because certain people aren’t reliable, they do what they want and make the rest of us suffer. Why is this? Does nobody have a work ethic anymore? It makes me wonder…Well here’s the issue. One person decided to not come into work because they were tired…after they were asked if they could do the shift last week and stated they could. Their excuse, “You didn’t give me enough time to sleep before my next shift.” I call bologna!

    See, we are well aware that in my field of work, security, we have long hours and back to backs and bounce from one shift, sleep, then bounce to another shift. That’s just how the field of security works, unfortunately. State law and Union rules say, you need eight hours between shifts, and can’t work more than 16 hours total in a 24 hours period. This is truth and fact. So expect that when you are short on hands, you need to pick up the slack. Not getting enough sleep when you have eight hours between your last shift and then next and then that following shift is only five hours long, you don’t have an excuse.

    Hell, maybe I’m being to rash, maybe it’s my military background that infuriates me about people like this. In the military, you don’t have any excuses, you’re on the governments time, not your time. You don’t have the option of skipping work because “you’re to tired”, such malarkey! If you only get two hours of sleep, tough! You only got two hours of sleep! So when you live not even 10 minutes from your work site, and you have 8 hours before your next shift, and you didn’t get enough sleep, BULLSHIT!

    I’m sorry guys, I’m so heated about this, it isn’t the first time this individual has pulled this, and it probably won’t be the last. It’s quite a nuisance. I’m afraid if they keep it up, they may be out of work sooner rather than later. They’re good people, they just don’t have any work ethic whatsoever. I’m a man of results and punctuality, and reliablity. If you can’t follow these basic traits, you can and will probably get on my bad side. “And you don’t want to see me when I’m angry…”(Hulk, n.d.)

    That’s about all I have to rant about today everyone, I know that rants aren’t really something that stand out when you see Schmidt’s View, but I can guarantee these are definitely views I have when it comes to the workplace and just life in general. Hopefully you don’t mind it!

    Tell me, do any of you deal with people that are like this at the workplace? Coming up with excuses so dumb that you really have to hit yourself in the head to even understand their point of view? Let me know in the comments below!

    Joyful, Joyful Northern States…Rant of the Week!

    So, January is finally over, the month where the snow was suppose to fall. And here we are, on February 12, 2019, and we are getting hit by ANOTHER snow storm! We literally just got hit by one a few days ago, then another one comes, and then before that, we had that damned polar vortex. Why is the North so cruel? Like seriously, can someone answer that for me? Well to add to the troubles of this terrible month thus far of snow and cold, my shoulder got messed up again, all because of the Army…

    I had to scrub a few articles of O.C.I.E. this last weekend, I can’t do a whole lot with that left shoulder yet unfortunately, which kind of sucks…well long story short, I scrubbed a lot and managed to not be able to avoid using my left shoulder in the process, causing a lot of after pain. Yea, Extra Strength Tylenol has become my temporary friend…And to make matters worse, all this damn snow is making my arm hurt even more, it’s also making my neck hurt and my other shoulder…

    Why is mother nature so cruel? Why is it causing so much pain to spread through my body? Like seriously, I feel like I’m 60 years old when I’m only 25, with all the pain my body is feeling because of the changes in weather because damned Mother Nature can’t make up her mind on what she wants the rest of our Winter season to look like. I’m really hoping that Spring gets here mighty quick now, so that my shoulder and the rest of my body can stop hurting. That would be the greatest thing ever!

    Whats more is I still am waiting on my Car Paperwork and such to get taken care of. My paperwork to get my totaled car out of my hair has yet to be finished by the Third-Party company…on top of that, I still have to send a police report to my lien holder so the GAP insurance claim can start rolling. So I’m still paying for this vehicle that I don’t own anymore. It kind of blows…hopefully by the end of this week that’ll get itself rolling and be finished before the end of the month. Being free of a car payment for a car I don’t own anymore would be very awesome!

    I know, this was a VERY pessimistic view, or rant I should call it. There really hasn’t been anything very positive going on in my life as of late just yet…Still waiting for that positivity (that’s a real word right??) to show up ever since my car accident almost two months ago. Where is it? Hopefully it’ll be here way sooner than later, it would be appreciated!!!

    But what about a sliver of good news?

    Even though this has been a pessimistic rant for the most part, here is a positive for you all! I’m finally caught up on my classwork!!! Yay! I’m that much closer to having that Graphic Arts Degree! AND I will be done with the Army in two months! That’s about all the positivity I have for you this time around! Sorry!! But hey, at least it’s something right?

    Well all, thank you for listening to my rant for today, I know it’s been awhile since my last post, but I’m working on putting a blog post up at least once a week here soon instead of sporadically! So stay tuned as that’s coming your way here withing the next few weeks! Also, if you want to know when a new post comes out for this blog, follow me over on Twitter at my handle @tshumitto!

    Tell me, what has your first two months of this new year been like so far? Comment below or tweet me your response! Have a good one my fellow readers!

    My Car Accident Pt. 3

    Well as you all already know, I was in a car accident, just over a month ago. I went to the doctors a couple of weeks ago and was told that I didn’t need surgery, which was good. Now we’re today, the third party insurance company I’ve been working with for the health coverage portion has been the absolute worse. They contacted me about two weeks ago, just a few days ago I received a letter stating that I needed to call a Sr. Medical Claims Representative through the Company of Broadspire, so I did. Not to my surprise, I went straight to a voicemail.

    I gave it a couple of days and tried to call again, and yet again, I got voicemail. What the hell right? Well this has been my life for the last month with this third party insurance crap. It was phone tag with the first part, which was the totaling of my vehicle, but finally it’s in my part of the field. I have to sign quite a bit of paper work still, but afterwards, it shouldn’t be to long at all before the car portion of this whole fiasco has been completed.

    The place I’m having trouble with now, is Broadspire, the medical insurance claims company. Today, I called them five times, once to the person I’m suppose to call, no answer, just voicemail. Second time was to another person that I needed to contact to see if they could give me info on why the first person didn’t answer, voicemail again. I don’t know if I’m just unlucky or what, but it seems every damn representative I get, goes on vacation. They don’t even pass on the case to someone who’s available to take over while they’re gone, they basically say; “Screw you, you’re my client, and you have to wait for me.”

    In my opinion that’s the wrong attitude, I wonder if the get commission or something from finishing claim cases. Regardless, I finally called Broadspire main HQ, the customer service rep answered there, and gave me another number, the number to the man in charge of the individual that was suppose to take care of my case. Guess what? You guessed it, they didn’t answer either! Finally I called the first person that I was working with that gave me the application to fill out and send back to them, and again, they didn’t answer. See my frustration? Every single person that’s suppose to be working on my medical claim aren’t doing their job, which makes me very unhappy, and I’m sure many others, who are working with them too, are very unhappy.

    Broadspire is crap, to put it bluntly. I can say, I won’t Uber anymore after all this, I may switch to Lyft, because the company Uber uses for insurance is the slowest moving group of third party insurance agencies I’ve ever seen. If this was my insurance company, I would’ve been done a while ago. I’m sorry if this rant isn’t normally what I write up, but I needed to vent. It’s frustrating when you have large medical bills coming in and not enough to cover any of it because your personal injury isn’t under you own insurance but someone else’s.

    Let me know in the comments below, any of you have to deal with anything like this? Where you’re waiting weeks to hear back from third party companies on something you had put in weeks ago?

    My Car Accident Pt. 1

    I had gotten into a car accident on December 20, 2018. It wasn’t a horrible one but wasn’t very great either. I was Ubering when it happened. I’m very grateful that nobody got seriously injured and all got away with a few bruises. Me, on the other hand, wasn’t as lucky but still lucky, thank God! (And my lucky dragon on my dash! Hahaha!)

    My car the night of the accident.

    I had broken my clavicle. It didn’t hurt at first but, we all know that when that adrenaline stops working you start to feel the aftershock. I was originally not going to go to the hospital but when my brother called, he convinced me otherwise. Good thing too because I found out there just what had happened to my arm.

    Well it’s been almost two weeks now as I stated above, and my arm is feeling rather well. I still can’t do a whole lot with it, and I still have to lay on my back at night, but I’m able to do a lot more than the first night. They say it takes four to eight weeks for a clavicle to heal, I’m hoping it’ll heal sooner rather than later. I have an appointment with the orthopedic today in a couple of hours actually.

    Other than that my fellow readers, I don’t have anything else to say. I’ll let you know when the orthopedic appointment has been completed on what the outcome is for surgery or not.

    Thank you all for listening! Have any of you had a broken clavicle or a broken bone? How’d you get through it? Let me know in the comments!
