on to today….im in the flag room in the famous MSC….and since its a flag room and they have diveristy stuff here, i just watched a phillipine dance show..they only did one dance with some huge stick but it was quite interesting…its like 32 degrees today or something…but it feels wonderful in here…day got started off by 5 hrs of sleep on a double test day (not suggested)…got out of the shower and was about to get dressed when i banged my knee on my dresser…wooden dresser…lets just say it didnt back down..and i lost…so i laid on my bed in pain for about 20 mins then noticed i was late..supposed to leave the house at 840, i was still agonizing in pain at 835 undressed… i rush to get dressed and get out the door….so i do and i make it to sweet eugenes to get my day started right….white mocha and a dozen doughnut holes…and to the inventor of sissy coffee (stuff actually w/taste and not all black)….i thank you……anyways…i get to the reed and the bus stop and was greated by hurricane-force winds that froze my face onto my body for decades to come….no bus was in sight, so i tell myself im gonna wait, but not long…first bus im taking…..first bus that came wasnt mine…..but as any warm blooded human did….i took it…..too dang cold to wait….so i take this bus, having no idea where the route goes….class begins at 935, and today was test day…..test number dos day…finally i find a stop thats relatively close to my class a 920…needless to say i made it..with time to spare…wrote my 2 essays…i thought i did quite well…test again tonite in ASL….which i like the class..but hate the tests….so we shall see….stay warm

Mistaken by Warren Barifeld

I shouldnt have to tell you who I am
Cause who I am should be speaking for itself
Cause if I am who I, I want to be
Then who you see won’t even be me
Oh the more and more I disappear
The more and more He becomes clear
Till everyone I talk to hears His voice
And everything I touch feels the warmth of HIs hand
Till everyone I meet sees Jesus in me
This is all I wanna be
I wanna be mistaken
For Jesus
Oh I wanna be mistaken
Do they only see who we are
When who we are should be pointing them to Christ
Cause we are who He chose to use
To spread the news
Of the way the truth and the life
Oh i want all I am to die
So all he is can come alive
Till everyone I talk to hears his voice
And everything I touch feels the warmth of His hand
Till everyone I meet sees Jesus in me
This is all I wanna be
I wanna be mistaken
For Jesus
Oh I wanna be, oh i need to be mistaken
For You
Lord I wanna be mistaken
