The problem is that our team is us and the rival school! (Brandon and Holly for those of you around the area)

And most of my teachers refuse to endorse FRC as a legitimate sport anyway.

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

When one of your hours' room number is the same number as a FIRST Team you know of pretty well, and can't figure out why their number is on a paper asking you to go down to the counseling office for Dual Enrollment papers.

When four of your hours are in Rooms 228, 234, 148, and 224, and the counseling office (a room I wish I didn't have to visit so often*) is Room 111.

*It's not because of WildStang, it's because I can't sign up for two of my core classes without the counselors doing it.

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

...you start planning for next year's season the day after the current season is over
...you randomly start doodling FIRST logos in class
...you replay matches over and over and over in your head
...you start making lame FIRST puns: "Priorities come FIRST." HAHA. HA. Ha. Oh, you don't get it...
...you obsessively check the FIRST website for any signs of updates or hints
...you scour Chief Delphi and other forums for any news

When as soon as you finish your teams off-season event, you start thinking about planning your FLL event in November.

#2212 is on 148? i see it on 22

and it's "FIRST" not "first". one is an organization we all love, the other is a synonym to 1.

With the default posts/page setting of 15, it's on 148. I checked that just now.

If, on the other hand, you have some huge number of posts per page, then it would logically be on some lower-numbered page.

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

When you spend your entire first week of Summer Break planning for your second off-season Event.

When 7 out of the first 8 days of Summer Break are filled with Robotics Demos, Meetings, and Competitions.

When you plan on spending the entire second week of Summer Break helping at your team's Lego Camp.

When you get an Email about AP Comp homework and check you calendar to see if it is going to interfere with Robotics.

When you wonder how your going to fit mentoring 2 FTC teams, 3 AP classes, FRC, and OCCRA into one year of school.
