You know you're overdosed on FIRST when you sit down on a city bus, look at the seat opposite you, and start thinking about which tools were used to machine each component part.

The most upsetting thing about your senior year is not because your leaving your friends and family for college, its because your leaving your team... *sob*

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

...when you start to not only talk to the robot, but you have a dictionary of pet names for him/her/it.

...when your tools talk back to you.

...when you start counting the number of robotics-related injuries you suffer daily as a measure of sacrifice for the robot.
