When you spend your spring break from college not on vacation in some warm sunny place, but back at your college cheering on your high school FRC team while they compete in their first regional of the season.

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

Also, when you're done with your last final of the term at college and your idea of celebrating is watching week one regional webcasts with fellow FIRST alum in your dorm building and discussing robot designs.

You know you've overdosed on FIRST when you go for a strategy meeting at someone's house, after being at competition all day, and you calmly ask someone "Why am I still wearing my safety glasses?"

A CNC mill? FRC teams don't get nice things like that! You need our oldschool manual mill. Nice thing is, it's in imperial! None of that evil metric in our robotics shop!

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

When you see a combination of numbers that has the same combination as a FIRST team (i.e. you see 817 and your team number is 781 and you go "ohmygosh!")

When you check the time and it's 11:14 and you think of Simbotics.
