Class

After an allnighter, you still manage to drag yourself to your "intro to engineering design" class, but find yourself reading chief delphi...

Bagh... who needs IED anyway... I have FIRST!

When you have a class with nothing to do and you say you will do your homework but go to ChiefDelphi instead.

when the majority of your college essays and scholarship applications are all about FIRST

not to mention your laws of life essay written in entirety on robotics.... and your last line reading "FIRST: not just robotics, but a way of life. And I have chosen it as MY way of life"

- the day after ship finds you and all of your closest friends in withdrawal
- all of your stories start with "This one time, at robotics..."
- you have tried to explain who Dean Kamen is, and what robotics is to the waitress at Hooters -- and every other restaurant you've ever been to
- you not only know what a Segway is, but have plastered your walls with pictures of it.
- you know what North Dumpling Island is
- it is perfectly acceptable to tie your long, curly, unruly, easily tangled hair back with a zip tie

- when the robot goes crazy in autonomous mode, runs over a freshman (anybody less than a senior), and you yell at them for almost hurting the bot as they scramble to get out from underneath.

- When you use old robots as weapons

- If you find the words "charfe", "toonces", or "workish" funny

- ^ If you think other people understand your inside jokes

you know you're addicted to FIRST when..

...you cut dinner short on valentines to go to FIRST.
...you cry when you find out your regionals don't have socials because you'll miss up on time to hang out with your friends from other teams.
...you remember being more excited the days before and especially the day of kickoff this year than any other day.
...no matter how tired or upset you are, even if you had such a bad day you're crying, you can come to robotics and everything is better within about 20 minutes, and you're probably hyper as heck.
... the only real reason your team is able to function is because of the high amount of mountain dew in your bloodstream.

- When you fall asleep programming, and when you wake up you find the robot running in circles in auton_mode dragging the laptop by the serial cable (this Saturday night).

- When you yell at a Victor 884 that won't recalibrate.

- When your VP yells at you every day for skipping classes, and you still do it every day.

- When you begin to walk around the classroom in "auton_mode".

- When the only websites in IE History are usfirst, CD, firstcanadianredional.org, and sinclairsprockets.com

- When you havent played Counter-Strike for 2 months
