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

If you're serious, don't rewrite your college essay. You do need a well rounded application, but your essay should be focused on one thing. Robotics is a great thing to write about for college, especially if you have an inspirational story to tell

When you're up in the wee hours of the morning trying to get streaming video recorded so that Minnesota teams have another regional to watch on TBA.

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

when you keep going to different wal marts in your area hoping that maybe one of them will still have the moonrock game piece from the past season's game and finally when you dont find any you contemplate buying it online

when the award made and given to you by your advisors is on a pedestal in the middle of your room and is made out of pieces from your practice robot and is barely held together with zip ties... that the advisors forgot to cut

i miss FIRST =(

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

You know you've overdosed on FIRST when you realize that you've just set Google Chrome to turn "tba <teamnumber>" into a search on TBA for that team...

You know it's even worse when you tell a friend and she knows that it's just the usual...

When you spend your first competition in 150 lbs of chain mail, working 8 hours a day in the pits, all for the sake of just getting to be there.

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

-When the only reason you want a job is so you can pay for parts to prototype drive chains.

-When you think you didn't get a job because you mentioned robotics too many times in the interveiw.

"Name a time when you didn't work well in a team."
"Well, I'm this robotics team, and one time, they wanted this deisgn, and it would'nt've worked, and I had the hardest time convincing them why it wouldn't work."

When you're sitting in a college "intro to programming" class and go to Chief Delphi because the professor asked how you troubleshoot or debug a program.

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

When you and your brother write a robotics parody off of the song "Still Alive" from portal:

That was a triumph
Were making a note here, huge success
Its hard to overstate their satisfaction

Gearhead Robotics
We do what we must because we can
For the good of everyone, except the teams that are done
And while we may not always end up in first place
Well still do our best to show professional grace
And the scouting will get done
And well have some great fun
At this FRC Competition

Well keep right at it
Were being so sincere right now
Even though you broke our hearts and beat us
And tore us to pieces
And smashed every piece into the wall
As we groaned it hurt because we were so happy for you
And now our points of data make a beautiful list
Plus were out of paper
Its event fifty-six
And were glad we got burned
Think of all the things we learned
At this FRC competition

So come take a look
We think you might learn a bit from us
Maybe we might make good future partners
Were in last place
That was a joke
Ha ha
Fat chance
Anyway this match is great, its so exciting and close

But look at us still talking when theres scouting to do
When we look down there it makes us glad were with you
Weve got planning to get done
Plus repairs, oh what fun
At this FRC Competition

That would make my day. Shame I can't go down to IRI this year.

Oh, and umm...I don't exactly think that men can reach any of those notes o.O They certainly sounded...interesting when some of our members sang along with it earlier today.

Very awesome, Nathan. I think that that is going to be our new team song Or maybe a secondary team song.

-When you go to engineering camp
-When you get super excited because you meet other robotics girls at said engineering camp
