Day by Day- Toya
This song is on dcTalk's Jesus Freak record. This was a very important record to me. I didn't hear it almost 3 years after it came out cause I knew nothign about dcTalk. I loved the writing on this because it helped me realize that you can be completely honest with God.

I am currently sitting at a desk in downtown Nashville where I am temping. My hair is slicked back (ran out of moisturizer) and I am wearing a blazer and neckerchief with my sexy secretary glasses. I just turned and saw my reflection in the painting of the city hanging behind me. I barely recognized myself.

I am confused. I actually enjoy having an office job. I seem to come up with my best creative ideas at a 9-5 job and I think it's because I am working on a specific goal. The goal of someday not having a 9-5 office job. I have discovered that I am a person that needs structure. I HAVE to be somewhere at 8:30 in the morning everyday. I have to be accountable. I don't think my creativity flows well when I am just left to fend for myself. This has been a rough 6 months, man.

My goal is to one day have an office that I can share with at least one other person. I already have it picked out in East Nashville and I know exactly what I want it to look like. In the meantime, I am going to sit here, answer phones, try not to drink up all of these people's Diet Coke and bottled water, and pray to God that an answer comes really, really soon.
