Go to Post I learned that I don't have a clone, there are only 24 hours in a day, and I can't do everything I want to do (even though I tried) and I learned that I have to say "no" once in a while. - KathieK [more]

My team is a district-wide team for five teams. As a result, most of my classmates ask "Are they in robotics?" when I mention someone they don't know. Which happens a lot...

Also, my friend told me he had this conversation the other day:
Friend: You know Ryan right?
Person: Who?
Friend: The guy in robotics.
Person: Oh yeah I know him.

on kickoff eve, even though you are your team's lead technical mentor, you aren't banking sleep, but cooking some gumbo for tomorrow's kickoff event.

...you're taking an economics test and when a question about autonomous spending comes up, you start thinking about how many dollars it is per gear.

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

  • You constantly talk about your favorite teams till your friends get annoyed
  • You cant sleep the night before a competition because you're so excited
  • You actually enjoy scouting all day with no breaks besides lunch (trust me it isn't that bad)
  • You have your buttons stored in baggies that are dated and labeled from every competition
  • You wear the non-button items you get from competitions whenever you can to support the other teams
  • You're one of the only people on your team who can withstand the pain from doing cotton eyed joe all day with a smile on their face
  • You're the one telling everyone to stand up and cheer or dance

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

.... you get excited because there's a Regional held on campus, but you quickly realize that you KNOW all the teams coming and you're much too biased to do any judging.
