Re: What I have Learned in FIRST

Weep (wipe tear away). I am so (wipe another) moved by your post. Remember if you ever want to come back to reality give me a call.

Truthfully I agree. Great post (it's scary when I agree with you). The 2005 season has just begun, let's get to it.

Just so you learn a few more things about FIRST, that "circle-y thing" is called an indexing head. Also, a "Laithe" is spelled Lathe Its nice to see you are learning however

Re: What I have Learned in FIRST

FIRST has taught me so much, i dont think I could list it all here. Although this is my first year as a team member, and my last (i'll be a mentor next yeaer) I learned so much. What you learn about life, serious time management skills, and having fun is so much more important than the robot. I know that I was a little let down when my team did poorly at Nationals, but it was an uplifting experience because we were able to spend more time talking to other teams about their innovations rather than having to spend time fixing things on our bot. I learned so much more in those few days by losing than i would have by winning. Life isnt always about winning and FIRST will teach you about that.

Re: What I have Learned in FIRST

I've learned that the measure of success isn't the money you make, the education you get, or the car you drive. Your success can only be measured in the amount of people in whose lives you've made a difference and the size of your heart.
