The year is almost over, and
change is in the air. Between
preparing for finals and the
future, a number of seasoned
Southernites took the time to
share words of wisdom from
their Southern experience.
Here's what they had to say:

"Sure, advisers are there
to guide, but you have to do
the research for yourself and
make your own decisions. You
have to be responsible for your
own experience and graduating
on time."

"College is the practice and refinement of
skills. Programs with campus organizations
are all set up to give you that practice. The
problem is they are also setup to continue
without you, so it's easy to just sit back and let
all of that invaluable experience slip by because
there are no consequences attached with lack of
involvement.'Be active, not passive, so that you
can gain the skills you need for a Christian life
instead of just being content with some math
and literature. P.S. Contra dancing is rad."

Brad Schleenbaker,

Biology Major,

"Take plenty of breaks especially
when the stress is on. Not allowing
yourself to get overly absorbed in
your studies is a good thing; you
don't want to burn out early in this
race we call school."

Beau Sherman,

day of class. It helps them if they know your name and

Mexican food hit list

Rachel Hopkins
Lihstyik Editor

ra fHhnpl(i ns^n il ' h ' Jrn p^ 11

Have a craving for some
south-of-the-border flavors?
Here's my top three list of the
best Mexican food around.

1. Taco Roc:

6960 Lee Hwy #101,

True-blue authentic Mexi-
can food with items you'll
never see on the menu at Los
Fotros. Tons of choices for
meat eaters, but more than
just beans for vegetarians (like
mixed grilled vegetables or
even grilled cactus) and their
fruit juices are to die for.

2. Mojo Burrito:

1800 Dayton Blvd. or
3815 St. Elmo Ave.,

The Tex-Mex food is good,
but the ambience is great.
Each location features the
work of local artists, design-
ers and photographers. It's an
awesome date spot.

3. Amigos Mexican

5874 Brainerd Road,

Two words: Taco night.
Monday night means bean,
beef or chicken tacos are only
75 cents each, and yes, they're
delicious. Since chips and
salsa are free, you can chow
and tip for $5 and service is
always speedy. If you're feel-
ing like splurging, split the
amigo dip with your friends.
It's a queso dip dolled up with
spinach, tomatoes and onions
(muy bueno).

Get Your


Vexation: The cost of
incessant dripping.
Solution: Get it fixed!

Nothing is more annoying
than a leaky faucet, shower
or toilet (yuck!). But, what's
even more annoying is how
much water you're wast-
ing by not getting it fixed.
If you're anything like me,
you have a dreadful mem-
ory and forget for at least a
week to put in a request for
repairs, but maybe knowing
that you're helping the en-
vironment as well as your
sanity will be added incen-

Clarification: A drip-
ping faucet may not seem
like tha ,g of a deal, but

you could actually waste
up to 74 gallons of wa-
ter a day by not getting it
fixed. If you do have some
leaks, you live in the dorm
and you're not sure who to
talk to, just log onto talge.
southern.edu and click on
"Repair Requests" on the
left. If you're in Southern
Village, shoot an email to
Dean Mathis and remem-
ber to be specific about ex-
actly which faucet, shower
or toilet has the problem. If
you love leaks and hate the
environment, then at least
do it to get into the habit
of saving money for the fu-
ture. If you had your own
home, a leaky toilet would
cost you about $30 a year.
That's a new pair of shoes.

There is nothing quite
like the spoken language. So
much goes into language that
goes beyond words, such as
body language, eye contact
and voice inflection. You can
say, "You're my best, friend,"
but add one tiny eye-roll, and
the friendship is off. You can
say, "That's not funny," but
the hysterical laughter boiling
just underneath the surface

will only encourage the teas-
ing. This can be a problem, as
I have found out. I have the
blessing (or rather the curse)
of laughing first and asking
questions later. Try getting
the point across that you don't
think the joke is funny after
you've already laughed. It's
not easy, trust me.

However, for the most part,
it doesn't take much to get your
meaning across when you're
talking face to face. But try
to convey your deepest emo-
tions in written words— now
that takes skill. Many a young
soul has labored for hours
over the exact wording of the
Valentine note he plans to lay
on Sally's desk during recess.
After much painstaking delib-
eration, he finally settles on
"Do you like me? Circle YES
or NO." Ah, young love. It is
straightforward and beautiful.

So why is it that the excla-
mation point is seemingly
the only tool used to express

strong emotion when writing?
(And when the emotion grows
in strength, the exclamation
points seem to multiply like
rabbits.) "Grandma is com-
ing to visit!" Now, what do
you mean by that exclama-
tion point? "Yay, she's bring-
ing cookies!"? "Great, now
I'm going to have to clean the
house from top to bottom!"?
"Grandma's been dead for
years, either ghosts are real
or I've been lied to!"? You can
see where the confusion might
play in.

I had to rewrite part of this
because it looked good on pa-
per, but when I read it out loud,
it gave the wrong impression.
Seriously, I'm not making it
up, and I'm not going to give
any hints as to what I edited
-out. The point is communica-
tion is hard. Bufwhen you get
it right... it's so cool!! (See?
TWO exclamation points!)


Not sure what to do this
weekend? Here are a few
ideas to get you headed
in the right direction.

Soccer season continues despite rain

Zackary Livingston
Sports Editor

The men's A division Furia
Latina beat Masanga Boys 2-0
on Monday night in a match
that most thought wouldn't
be decided until the very last
second. Furia Latina proved
otherwise by beating Masanga
with ease. Furia's Sean Anch-
eta scored a goal during the
first half that seemed almost
effortless against Masanga's
defense and the ball stayed
heavy on Masanga goalie, Jaris
Gonzalez, for the majority of
the match. At the beginning
of the second half, Masanga's
Victor Thomas tried to ignite a
spark with a goal but came up

"I think we weren't playing
our game because we didn't
have our coach who usually
subs us in and out," said Vic-
tor Thomas, a junior graphic
design major.

Mwila Chikobe added to the
pain during the second half
with a quick shot past Masan-
ga's goalie to put them up two
goals to none. Furia goalie
Jimmy Gaines didn't have to
do much this game, but he did
prevent Masanga from having
any hope of winning.

"I think we dominated and
experience is what won the
game," said Mwila Chikobe,
a senior business administra-
tion major. "I think we are the
best team overall."

Furia Latina is definitely the
new team to beat with an un-
defeated record and a couple
of ties. When you look at this
team you have to admit that
they are quite amazing. They
are a bunch of unselfish play-
ers who don't care about play-
ing time and pass the ball like
the Harlem Globe Trotters.
Their defense is almost impen-
etrable, and if you do get past
them, you have to beat Jimmy
Gaines, who is arguably the
best goalie in intramurals. If
you play in the men's league
beware, because Furia Latina
has come to conquer in 2009.

In the women's north divi-
sion, team Tjimaini defeated
Blazn 2-1. Despite the horrible
weather causing heavy rain for
five minutes, the women con-
tinued to play, still kicking the
ball through the muddy fields.
Tjimaini's Zaire Burjess didn't
let the weather stop her as she
aggressively pushed the ball
toward the opposite goal and
scored. Blazn's Dyan Urboda
replied with a goal of her own
on the other side of the field.

It was a hard fought game
on both sides of the field, but
Jazmine Martinez took the
cake with a penalty kick that
put Tjimaini up 2-1.

"It was a really close game
and we had a lot of close
shots," said Grace Nunez, a
junior psychology major. "We
played hard but it just wasn't
meant to be."

Tarheels win sixth championship; what now?

Davis Wallace

Mass Communication Major

itoalla ccfiisiii.thcm .Hn

As of April 6, 2009, the
North Carolina Tarheels won
th «r sixth national cham-
pionship in school history.
The question is: What's next
«>r the Tarheels? Senior for-
wards, Tyler Hansbrough and
Danny Green will not be able
t0 return for a fifth year. Ju-
w °r guards, Ty Lawson and

Wayne Ellington had tremen-
dous tournament games. They
might once again test the NBA
waters, but this time around
they might forego their senior
seasons. Freshman forward,
Ed Davis is the only signifi-
cant piece to North Carolina's
championship fun that has
committed to return for his
sophomore year.

For Head Coach Roy Wil-
liams, this will be his second
title. His first one came back in

2005 when North Carolina de-
feated Illinois. Following that
championship win; Raymond
Felton, Rashad McCants, Sean
May and Marvin Williams all
declared eligible for the NBA
draft. Not to mention Jawad
Williams, Melvin Scott and
Jackie Manuel graduating that
same year.

At the start of the 2006 sea-
son, Coach Williams rebuilt a
new team that featured fresh-
man Tyler Hansbrough. Looks

like it turned out well for him
because each year North Caro-
lina kept adding players, got
better as a team and went fur-
ther in the tournament.

It looks like Coach Wil-
liams is going to have to do
that with the five recruits
coming in next year. This in-
cludes 7-foot twin centers Da-
vid and Travis Wear. All the
critics counted North Carolina
down and count after they lost
their top seven scorers from

the 2005 team. It looks like
this might happen again next
year, too. Coach Williams has
made nothing into something
before; sure there is no rea-
son why he can't do it again.
Instead of asking what's next
for the Tarheels, maybe we
should be asking how much
longer until they win another
