f Mrary to the viewpoints in
F e ° Der ™g statements, social
|°« is an exciting and ex-
iting field with diverse job

opportunities in government,
hospitals, schools, counseling
and private and international
agencies, to name a few.

Looking back over the past
several years, I can see God's
hand leading me to social
work. As a junior in academy,
my future plans didn't include
God at all. My career goals in-
cluded going to a secular uni-
versity, then law school, and
then on to making a fat pay-
check following a trail numer-
ous cousins had blazed before
me. At school, I was the pic-
ture of a successful straight-A
student. I was on the gymnas-
tics team and held Student
Association and class officer
positions. I had been baptized
before I started academy, but
somehow I had put myself and
my wants at the center of my
lifestyle. My life was full of ac-
tivity, but I felt empty.

Fortunately, the second se-
mester of that year, I was ran-
domly asked to be a leader at

a prayer conference at Camp
Kulaqua. This experience
changed my life, and for the
first time I gave my will and
future over to God. When I did
this, I experienced peace and
a sense of purpose I had not
known before.

My senior year in academy
increased the pressure to de-
cide what to major in. I was a
little overwhelmed with all the
options, but I debated between
genetic engineering or psy-
chology. I asked God to help
me choose the one He thought
was best. When my academy
came to Southern for college
days, I flippantly chose social
work as one of my workshops
to fill the time. I had no real
idea what social work was, nor
was I seriously considering at-
tending an Adventist college.

However, as I was intro-
duced to social work for the
first time, I was impressed
with its mission of hands-on
service that impacted indi-

viduals and communities. Be-
fore graduation, I knew God
was calling me to social work.
This news came as a shock

' This

my life, and
for the first
time I gave
my will and
future over

to God.

to my family. They could not
understand why I wanted to
be in a profession whose title

even implies that. one must
work like a common laborer,
something most Asian parents
don't brag about. However,
after arguments, tears, soul
searching, praying and strong
mentoring from my chaplain,
I decided to go where I knew
God was leading me.

Since starting this journey
I have not regretted doing so.
Social work has deepened my
relationship with God, and He
has taught me that each per-
son I meet is His child and of
infinite worth. After my soph-
omore year of social work, God
guided me to a life-changing
experience as a student mis-
sionary which solidified my
desire to pursue international
social work. This summer I ^-
have an internship with ADRA \_y
in Thailand at a project for at-
risk trafficked girls. I am excit-
ed to see where the Srst social
wor r, Jesus, will lead me in
tk ure.



How to keep a sunny outlook on a rainy day

We've had some soggy
weather lately. By the time
this is printed, I'm sure the
rain will be long gone, and
this article will be completely
irrelevant, but no worries, the
rain will eventually return and
when it does you'll know how
to take advantage of it.

Wash your car

Or more accurately, let the
rain wash your car. This seems
like a no-brainer, but it will
work a whole lot better if you
relocate to a parking spot that
is not under a tree. If you have
some tough spots, take an old
towel and give 'em a quick
wipe. Your car will sparkling
thanks to Mr. Monsoon.

Go mudding

I am fully comfortable with
admitting how redneck this
pastime is, but just because
it's hick, doesn't mean it's not
fun. You'll need the right kind
of vehicle and a remote loca-
tion, but if you hadn't noticed,
both of those are plentiful in
the South.

Go on a productivity

If your soccer game got
cancelled, don't pout about it.
Use the extra time to get some
projects done. That way when
the sun DOES come out, you'll
be able to enjoy it. Maybe de-
cide to be antisocial until it's
sunny. You'll be amazed at
how much you accomplish.

Experience your child-
hood all over again

Call me a nerd, but one of
the great joys I had on rainy
days as a kid was measuring
how much rain fell. Glue a cup
to a Popsicle stick, mark the
inches on the side and go stick
it in the ground. Hmmmm,
exactly 3.2 inches. Who says
journalism majors can't be

Buy rain boots

Admittedly, this one's for
the ladies. If you've been put-
ting off splurging on those
cute Target boots, convince
yourself of how necessary it
is that you finally go purchase
them. Those little flimsy flats
that are so "in" right now are
not conducive to the weather.
Really, go buy the boots. It's
for your health.

end? Here are a few ideas to

3077 Broad Street
Chattanooga, Tenn.

Atmosphere - Small, inti-
mate and classy.

Fare - Exquisite Italian.
Everything homemade. Bread
delivered daily from the Bluff
View Bakery (the one that
bakes for Rembrandt's).

Service - Top tier. The
hostess was exceptionally
friendly, and the server was
very professional and helpful.

Et Cetera - Although some
entrees cost$20ormore, many

can be had for less. A real steal
comes on your birthday: free
pasta entree and desert! Res-
ervations are recommended
(required on weekends). Also,
get directions from the restau-
rant; locating the building can
be difficult.

Bottom Line - Though
pricey, Boccaccia is a jewel.
Innovative, fresh Italian cui-
sine combined with a subdued
environment puts this restau-
rant in my top 3 Chattanooga
favorites (undoubtedly the
best Italian restaurant).

Get your Green On

Vexation: Global warm-
ing caused by excessive en-
ergy use (which produces
green house gasses).

Solution: That was a
mouthful, but the solution
is simple; turn your lights

Implementation: This
is an easy one. Just be care-
ful. Turn your lights off
when you leave your room,
make sure your desk and
closet lights stay off when
you don't need them and
make sure the bathroom
light is off (if it's not in use
of course). If you do all
this already, then go a step
further. Decide that your
room lights will go off at
a certain time no matter
what. If you're still up do-
ing homework, take it to
the lobby. Those lights will
be on anyway.

Clarification: Col-
lectively turning the lights
off is a hot trend right now
and I KNOW how con-
cerned you are about being
trendy. Southern Village
has had an electricity con-
test going since the begin-
ning of the semester (ev-
eryone in the building with
the lowest bill at the end of
the semester will get Wal-
Mart gift cards). And last
Saturday at 8:30 p.m., was
Earth Hour, when people
all over the country shut
their lights off. If you don't
think it makes much of a
difference, consider this:
Last year participants m
Chicago turned their lights
off for an hour and helped
reduce the amount of C02
that 104 acres of trees con-
sume in the same amount
of time.

Masanga Boys defeated Barra

"Barra Brava is a good team
and they played a good game,"
Llaguno said. "Teamwork is
what always wins in the end."

Coach Didier Brival, a ju-
nior photography major, did a
great job leading the Masanga
Boys to victory while trying to
juggle playing time between so
many good players.

Masanga is a team filled
with great players, but hav-
ing too many players will
stop those great players
from seeing the field. Right
now Masanga is looking like
the team to beat, but if they
don't do something about

"We played the game we

Caliente to the health center.

During the first half , the De-

midfield and Defeeters' goalie,
Asa Mercado, a freshman

yawned as she stood in front of
