The Second Annual FTKolor Is Coming

#DoMore and help the kids by attending FTKolor on January 22!

The Second Annual FTKolor Is Coming
Dance Marathon at Florida State University

You've heard about those 5K's where they throw paint at you while you run, and if you're like me, you've always wanted to do one but can barely run down the block. Next Sunday, there is an event perfect for those who want to do a color run without the running. Dance Marathon at Florida State University is kicking off Rally Week and hosting our second annual FTKolor on Sunday, January 22nd, 2017. Head to Heritage Grove from 2-4 PM where you will attend FSU's biggest paint party for a cause. All the money raised from ticket sales of this event benefit Dance Marathon's cause, Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. Tickets are $15 at the door, where you'll get unlimited paint to throw in your friends face AND a commemorative t-shirt.

Why you should come to FTKolor.

We get it, anything more than five bucks to a college student seems like a luxury, but you willingly spend $15 on a t-shirt on its own. You not only get a t-shirt, but you get an amazing event to attend as well. Our first FTKolor was a huge success and hyped everyone up for the actual marathon in February. There's no better way to be inspired for the marathon than to attend an event that embodies the Dance Marathon spirit. Didn't get to attend last year's event or you're just now hearing about it? Check out last year's FTKolor!

Where your money is going.

The money raised from this event benefits Children's Miracle Network Hospitals, which provides care for children and their families with diseases and illnesses like cancer and compromised immune systems, as well as research for future cures, and FSU College of Medicine's Pediatric Outreach Program, which provides pediatric health care in our very own Tallahassee community. Your $15 is the reason a family can sleep a little easier because their child is getting the care they need, the reason a child spends more birthdays out of hospital beds, and the reason diseases will be cured one day. And believe it or not, you and your friends throwing paint in the air and at each other increases CMN's awareness, leading to more funds and more available pediatric care.

Long story short, we hope you come to FTKolor next Sunday. Do it for the Instragram pic, do it for the kids. If you bought your ticket pre-sale, or if you're buying at the door, you'll pick up your t-shirt at check-in on the field in between Pike and ZBT. See you there!

Holidays With A Small Family

I wouldn't trade what we have for the world.

Matt Johnsn

When I was a kid I always went to my grandparents house whenever we celebrated any sort of holiday. We were a decently sized family and it was always a blessing to be in their house and surrounded by love during the holiday season. However, that all changed when my grandfather passed away and my grandmother was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. The family then began to drift apart and life went on, and we ended up all celebrating our own holidays with other family members.

Safe Spaces Or Regressive Spaces?

Turns out shielding yourself from ideas can be detrimental to your ability to learn


College is a place for people who want to learn. That is the primary function of any academic institution. Its purpose is not to coddle us, nor should the community always be in agreement with us. We are supposed to surround ourselves with a variety of viewpoints that challenge us to learn, not the same repetitive points of view that make us happy.

Black Friday is back to being Black Friday

This year, malls are standing up against Black Friday beginning on Thanksgiving. Doors won't be opening until Friday morning.


Last week my twitter feed was full of exclamations of how excited people were that our local mall, Westmoreland Mall would be closed on Thanksgiving Day this year. For those who work during the busy holiday days and hours, a celebration was in order. For the die-hard deal finders and shoppers though, they didn’t seem very happy.

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

There's been a recent boom in the popularity of vintage style looks and up-cycling thrifted finds to sell at, usually, an outrageous price. Is this ethical? Or does it defeat the whole purpose of thrifting in the first place?

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

One day, I was scrolling through Twitter and came across a tweet about upper-middle-class class people thrift shopping. I personally was against the up cycling/re-selling trend because I thought it to be greedy. Then, I began to see more and more tweets, and then stated to see ones about those who buy thrifted, name brand items and sell them for what they're actually worth instead of the very low price they got them for.
