How The World Looked The Last Time FSU Won A National Championship

How The World Looked The Last Time FSU Won A National Championship

Those were the days.

This one goes out to all the junior and senior Seminoles out there. To the classes of 2016 and 2017, I'm truly sorry. I have watched the light in your eyes slowly twinkle away as our beloved Florida State Seminoles have taken defeat after defeat. So in the midst of my self-pity, I decided to reflect on a happier time; the time of the 2014 BCS National Championship Game. It's been a few years and a lot has changed since our national championship game for the 2013 season. It's about time that we cry reminisce on what the world looked like during the time of our most recent football victory:

1. "Thrift Shop" by Macklemore and Ryan Lewis Featuring Wanz was listed as the No. 1 on Billboard's "Hot 100 Songs."

2. Nelson Mandela passed away.

The former president of South Africa died on December 5, 2013.

3. The movie "Sharknado" came out.

4. The Jonas Brothers announced their breakup during an interview.

5. Paul Walker passed away.

Star of the "Fast and Furious" movies, actor Paul Walker, died in a car accident at age 40.

6. Miley Cyrus traumatized the world by twerking at the MTV Video Music Awards.

My childhood self is still in shock.

7. The first season of "Orange Is the New Black" was a huge hit.

8. Auburn beat Alabama in one of the most shocking victories in college football.

9. Candy Crush became the most popular game on Facebook.

10. Justin Bieber's "Believe" movie was released.

11. The government shut down.

Since Congress couldn't decide on a budget for the fiscal year of 2014, the government was shut down for 16 days.

12. Yahoo released that Amanda Bynes was No. 7 on their list of top searches.

She had a rough year, alright.

13. Phil Robertson was suspended from A&E.

Star of the A&E show, Duck Dynasty, Robertson was suspended for his comments against homosexuality.

14. Bruce and Kris Jenner announced their split.

15. The average price of gasoline was $3.30.

16. "Uptown Funk" was announced as the Record of the Year at the 58th Annual Grammy Awards.

As much as this sucks, at least we don't have to look back on 2008 to reminisce on our most recent national championship win (cough, cough UF).

50 Quotes from the Best Vines

If you're picturing the vines in your head, you're doing it right

In 2017 we had to say goodbye to one of the best websites to ever roam the internet: Vine. In case you have been living under a rock since 2013, Vine was -(sad face)- a website and app that took the internet and the app store by storm in Winter 2013. It contained 6-second videos that were mostly comedy- but there were other genres including music, sports, cool tricks and different trends. Vine stars would get together and plan out a vine and film it till they got it right.

It was owned by Twitter and it was shut down because of so many reasons; the viners were leaving and making money from Youtube, there was simply no money in it and Twitter wanted us to suffer.

Crossing the Border


Since I live next to the border, I go to Mexico every once in a while for fun, for food or medication. One day I was crossing the border from Algodones in 115 degree weather with my friend, heading home. When I arrived at the end of the borderline the U.S. Custom and Border Protection Service asked for identification and our reason to Mexico. Our reason to Mexico was to get some medication and for food since we also had a bag of chips. She didn't look pleased and so proceeded with checking our passports. She puts everything down and goes behind my car, she begins to bang on my tires and the rear end. She then asks me to open my trunk and I don't mind because we have nothing there but my friend is starting to get frustrated because she needs to use the restroom. The U.S. Custom then comes to the front and asks if we have anything else to declare and I respond with a simple "no." She looks at us both and asks to open up the back door. My door's handle fell off so I had to open it for her from inside. I didn't mind again but my friend was having enough. What happened next scared us both. She hopped on the back seat and literally pushed it down several times. I was astonished and replied with Is this even necessary? Is it because we're young?" She didn't respond got off the car and returned our identification.

Why over-use the authority?

U.S. Customs all around us

I have crossed the border from Mexico to the U.S. many times. I had encountered rude U.S Customs before but this woman really didn't have to get in my car and scare me like that. My friend immediately said profiling. It has also happened several times with my father because he is Mexican and darker skinned. When instead of sending him to secondary they check him there and question him with inappropriate questions. I know it's people's jobs but be respectful and appropriate while having that authority. Just because people have that power, do not judge or make assumptions of others.
