Re: You know you've overdosed on FIRST when...

Ok, this is one of my best friends, but I'll post it seeing as he can't:

- When on your only weekend off in the next month (from your service in the Israeli Navy) you come to help with the kickoff until 1 AM when you need to be halfway across Israel, ready for service by 8 AM.
AND
- When in your daily 40 minute break you spend 25 minutes on the phone with your team talking about strategic ideas for the robot and checking up on your team

Re: You know you've overdosed on FIRST when...

When you write down various quotes from all the build seasons.
When you have a shortcut icon on your desktop to ChiefDelphi.

Re: You know you've overdosed on FIRST when...

when your days now consist of waking up, going to school, going to robotics, going to work, and then back to robotics before heading home for the night.

when you discover your guilty conscience because you are drawing robot designs in church.

when the only thing you look forward to from day to day is working on Breakaway.

when your best friend joins the team just because they know they won't see you if they aren't at meetings.

when your parents start talking about your 18th birthday and all you say is "i'm busy that day, it's build season"

when you wake up early enough in the morning to check CD before school.

when checking CD is the FIRST thing you do in the morning.

When you talk to some people about FRC, tell them how much you are meeting (12 hours a day) and they tell you that you are working more for FRC than they do for work!!!

Then you proceed to show your family and they have NO clue how awesome of an idea it was XD

Re: You know you've overdosed on FIRST when...

when while taking a college class you are tempted to put a sign on a door that says, "1519 was here!" all because you see orbit balls in the shop and the xkcd umbrella bot comic on the door and realize it is team 2342's workshop!

when your boss puts his foot down and and won't schedule so you can make it to robotics on time in hope that you will quit the team because of it. (i think i've overdosed when you make you boss really mad at you!)

Thanks. Yeah, I mean, I didn't want to get away from FIRST but I thought it would happen. I was wrong. FIRST is like learning to speak. Once you start, you never shut up!
