Dealing with Loss

Elizabeth Kubla-Ross wrote that when a person finds out that they are dying (or you have to ship your robot) they go through five stages of dealing with it: denial, anger, bargaining, depression, acceptance. An example is:

1. No, no, no! The ship date isn't Feb. 21 -- it's MARCH 21. You must be wrong.

2. I can't believe FIRST only gives us six weeks! Those *&#$&@(!!!3! No one can build a robot that fast.

3. I'm going to call FIRST. I'm sure if we send the FIRST offices a box of t-shirts they will give us five more days.

4. Tuesday. There is no way we are going to make it. I'm going home to play video games. Does anyone have some chocolate?

5. OK. Tuesday it is -- let's get busy. If we take the motors off, I'm sure we can make weight.

Where are you today?

Re: Dealing with Loss

1293's definitely in stage 5. Sometimes we've been teetering on stage 4, but mostly we just want to get this darn thing done!

Re: Dealing with Loss

Being that it is Sunday, I don't know if we'll be completely done >.< I mean it works, it just needs a program, and I just don't know if it all will work. So i guess stage 4

Re: Dealing with Loss

All of our major mechanical work is done, just some tweaking left to do. As for code its getting there. So right now we're in stage 5. With how much more complex our robot is this year compared to last year we're really happy with how well it works.

Re: Dealing with Loss

We have good experienced mentors and capable kids handling the robot so it's never an issue about getting the bot done.

Re: Dealing with Loss

The entire team is totally on stage 5 right now, but personally I'm around 2 or 4. >.< We'll make it though and I'm sure that everyone's robots will look awesome, even if the team doesn't!!!

In Terry Gilliam's movie Brazil our hero ultimately escapes the torture and brutality of a totalitarian regime, in which he is helpless to control events, by abandoning reality and mentally going off the the Brazil of his dreams. It's like all metaphorical and stuff.
