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

...you don't know what to do with yourself now that build season is over
...you see random numbers and think of the FRC team
...the pits become like a second home
...you have a massive collection of team pins and robotics t-shirts.
...you have danced the macarena and the YMCA with 40,000 people.
...you are sobbing at the end of the competition, not because you lost, but because it's over.

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

...when its all over and your already thinking aboout off season projects

...when competitions are done you realise you havent talked to your friends outside of robotics in a month

...when its over you realise you can think and speak clearly again

...when you use a 7/16 wrench and 5/32 allen key more than a pencil in school

...when standing at a mill or lathe for hours on end is normal... super overdose on that 1

... when you are only at home to sleep for 4 hours

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

...When you think of Team 118 EVERY time you hear the song Can't Hold Us (feat. Ray Dalton)

...When you feel absolutely sure there is something in top of your head(safety glasses) even though you are outside of the robotics room

...When you sing the spirit chants of other teams in school

...When you go to CD before checking your school grades

...When you subscribe to this thread to see any more replies

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

When you're in public and you see someone wearing a shirt that's somewhat the color of a team's shirt and you think "HEY! I wonder if they're from team XXXX?"

When you go to a MakerSpace and bust out the side shields like it's nothing at all (which it is to you) to the confusion of everyone else.

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

You see the Hunger Games, and when you hear "The Game Design Committee", you think of FIRST.

FIRST is our Hunger Games. May the odds be ever in your favor.
