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

You start suffering from what I call "post-robot ship syndrome". Something that has consumed your life the past 6 weeks is gone, just like that, you worry about things like FedEx trucks spontaneously combusting, and (best case scenario) you're left for at least ~1.5 weeks with a mediocre stand-in [aka a practice bot]

...someone asks you about FIRST over TeamSpeak, you start going nuts explaining the program, it's founders, the fun, the stress, then linking them to your team website and the current year's animation.

The response 'magic' doesn't cut it to the old question 'how does that work?'

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

When driving home from a competition at 11pm, you look up at the drivers GPS and you see the vision target.


A team member and I were in the back seat on our laptops, I glance up at our mentors GPS, it outlines the road in the same shade of pink...and all I saw was the vision target, for close to a minute.

-You hear a number, any number, and you look down to see a scouting sheet with their info.
-You feel naked without your safety goggles.
-You memorized the pit.

(note: 1 and 3 of those are scout/strategist specific)

When you suddenly realize you're on an alliance with 71 against 1114 and 217 in the Championship finals... And wake up in Health class.

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

When told that there is no meetings you don't know what to do with the free time but try and build a robot

then the day after shipping you finish your last class and think to yourself "O.K. I finished my last class of the day...(stand at locker for a few minutes) what do i have next... (1 min later)... o YEA i get to go home and have life"
