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

When you still can't accept the fact that you're not going to nationals. And it's not because you had an awesome robot or because you felt you "deserved" to go. When it's because your schedule just opened up and you don't know what you'll do with all that free time...

When you get home from a competition and need a tool and you turn to grab it from it's location in the pits.

When you reference the number of safety tokens you earned to a FIRST team. (We had 47 )

When you know you're going to spend 3 days on your feet, you're going to lose your voice, run on sugar and adrenaline, eat the world's worst food for your body, and get NO sleep, and you know that you'll still be fine.

When you've considered a failing your senior year to spend another year with your team. (Instead, I think I might take a gap year between hs and college.)

after two regionals back to back, i felt so horrible. but its always worth it, but wow does your body start to hurt after not eating real food for awhile. i think i would have fallen asleep while driving if it want for adrenaline.

You replaced the picture of your girlfriend on your phone's background for one of your robot.

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

-when you close your eyes and see robots running into each other
-when you still think winning your first regional was just a dream
-when upsetting the 1 seed as 8 seed and winning said regional made your more excited then when you beat your HS football rival for the first time in 11 years

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

When you catch a bit of a football game in the hotel lobby, see the coach on the sideline, and think, "Hey, where are his safety glasses?!"

When you Stay up all night writing grant applications to various organizations, get dressed, go to work, and realize that it is Sunday when you set off the Alarm!!!

48 Hours without sleep and still writing... and it's almost coherent!!!

When you have worn a hole in the arena floor from the pacing back and forth hoping you are watching your first regional win ever!

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

When it takes having the regional director of your FIRST program giving you a hug as you high-five the judges to make you realize YOU'RE GOING TO ATLANTA... (and, as a plus, you have tears of joy pouring off your face the whole time)

Thanks Deb !!!! (Debra Mumm-Hill is the Pacific Northwest regional director)

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

...When you wake up at 1 in the morning, scribble a note about debugging image processing on your arm, and fall back asleep

...when you're convinced that your robot is actually plotting against you

...when you decide that a cRIO isn't that bad of a pillow after all

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

When your friends get angry with you because you are constantly talking about robotics. They end up abandoning the few of you that are on the team and walk away. They also get angry when facebook threads get overrun with robotics talk.

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

When you get a toolbox for christmas and immediately say "this won't hold all my tools"

Your teacher says this isn't rocket science and you think to yourself "rocket science is easier"

when the robotics season is over you go home and build your own robot because you have nothing better to do.

you think in if statements

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

On your 8 hour drive back from Atlanta you begin re-writing songs to have FIRST related lyrics
(We started with the 12 Days of Competition and Dean Had a Little Plan, which were the 2 remotely decent ones, and progressed on to Oops I Broke the Robot, Build Build Build Your Bot and I've Been Working On The Robot. We were getting pretty delusional...)
