On fourth-and-5 in Oregon territory late in third quarter, Jameis Winston was flushed from the pocket and as he loaded to throw his foot slipped and the ball popped out of his hands.  Tony Washington recovered the fumble and went 58 yards for a touchdown, which put Oregon up 45-20. The Ducks won the Rose Bowl in a 59-20 rout of the Seminoles. (John W. McDonough/SI)

Signal boost! Help if you can!

My boyfriend was diagnosed with (and treated for) Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, a type of blood cancer, in 2012. Though he has been in remission for almost two years now, the fight against cancer is never over, which is why he’s a Team Captain for this year’s Light The Night FSU Walk on November 13th.

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society was a huge help to him when he was diagnosed, and he is deeply honored to support them this year as a survivor. He made a team through Foundation Beyond Belief, a secular charity that you can learn more about at here.

If anybody is interested in donating to the team (or walking with us, if possible!), the link to his personal page is http://pages.lightthenight.org/ncfl/Tallahas14/JKarpf and the team page is http://pages.lightthenight.org/…/Tal…/FoundationBeyondBelief.

If you could donate even two dollars we would really appreciate it. If you’re unable to donate but would like to help out, simply like and reblog this post to help spread the word.

Thank you!

When I was a kid my father used to say “Our greatest hopes and our worst fears are seldom realized.” Our worst fears have been realized tonight.

I was naive to think that this could have never happened at FSU and now my heart and prayers go to those injured and affected, having been an RA during my undergraduate years, we are certainly trained to deal with this type of event, but immediately forget how to (I speak mainly for myself) as well, you’d never actually expect it to happen.

Coming back for medical school here has been nothing short of an amazing experience. I love my alma mater and to be back to continue a life-long goal is electrifying every day.

Am I scared? No. I’ll walk across the street to the College of Medicine and attend the lecture that’s expected of me, because it’s what FSU expects of me, and I’ll be damned if I don’t meet the expectations of this great institution.

Our Greatest Hopes are that we can shake off our fears, and uphold the Garnet & Gold by displaying  Vires, Artes, Mores — Strength, Skill and Character.

Go Seminoles.
