"All that is gold does not glitter. Not all those who wander are lost."
Waking up at 6:45 for work, spending 7 hours in the office, writing papers until 2 am, eating more cookies than necessary. But so thankful I get these opportunities.
Can we all agree that Carl Kasell’s grumpy face is the best part of OK Go’s Tiny Desk Concert?
Broadcasting legend Carl Kasell just announced that he’s retiring from Wait Wait… Don’t Tell Me this spring and we’re still sure this GIF set is one for the books. We’re all gonna miss you, Carl!

"It took me getting into a lot of fights before I was diagnosed with PTSD. I have something called ‘hypervigilance.’ I get really nervous around people. Especially people from the Middle East."
"What were some traumatic things that happened to you?"
"I was in a vehicle when a mortar round exploded in front of us, and we fell into the crater and got trapped. There was a burning oil rig near us, so it was like being in a microwave. And we couldn’t get out. And I also saw a lot of hanky shit. Mostly from our side. Everyone was really revved up from 9/11. We did a lot of bad things. I saw decapitations, and that was our guys doing it."
"We were supposed to bring POW’s back to the base. But instead we gave them a cigarette to calm them down, and told them to get on their knees. One of our guys was 240 lbs, and he’d taken this shovel we’d been issued, and he’d sharpened one of the sides until it was like an axe, and he could take off somebody’s head with two hits."
"How many times did you see that happen?"

So I got assigned to cover this guy Mark Kozelek’s concert on Saturday in SF as part of the Noise Pop series and they didn’t give me a plus one so I’m going alone and it is my first solo concert and I’m nervous.

"I was always made to feel like I’d be successful because I always did my homework. I wish I’d spent more time putting energy into things that came from myself."
