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

When while following your cousins soccer team in New Jersey, you go home and see if their high schools have FIRST teams.

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

When you're at an event and looking at the year long schedule and thinking "those three dates will conflict with build season" and then you hear the folks behind you discussing the same issue!

OK, so it was an event about teaching students engineering but still!

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

...you go to your BME professor for academic advising, she asks you why you went into engineering, and you promptly launch into an enthusiastic twenty-minute explanation of FIRST and robotics.

...you're at college, and when meeting new people, you ask if they were on a team in high school before you ask their names.

...your first paper at college deals with FIRST robotics in a completely serious and professional way.

...you haven't entirely figured out your weekly class schedule but already know the meeting times and places for the college robotics team (not quite FIRST related).

...everything reminds you of FIRST robotics in the college robotics team, of course...

When the number 111 starts stalking you... Your lab drawer in Chemistry, the seat you have at the football game, the numbers of letters in a text to your FIRST friends....

When you go to your first engineering class in college and the first people you meet are FIRSTers : D

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

If I saw someone at my school wearing a Thunderchickens shirt, I'd probably worship them. And if they're not a "real" Chicken, then I'd ask them how they got it

I'm not a real chicken (I wish I was! but I love my team <3) and I got it for my birthday; I think that the fact that I got it was a topic of discussion in this thread a few pages back.

Now, let's get back on topic....

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

I meant to add something about "still worshipping them" to the end of the line.

You know you're overdosed on FIRST when you've thought of this kind of thing before.
