I resolve to…

-not get so aggravated with my team when they’re laying around doing nothing or fighting over a small decision for hours (nevertheless, I still adore them)

-Work as hard as I can for RCU

-finish the never-finished web page

-meet lots and lots of people at FIRST-thingys

and…
-Dare to be stupid. Hey, it worked at the UTC Regional :slight_smile:

Hmmm…just got into Logan Airport from my Christmas in Maryland, so please ignore me if this makes no sense at all ;o)

I think my FIRST New Year’s resolution would have to be to try to give my team all that I can so that when I have to leave for college elsewhere next year I can hopefully be safe in the knowledge that they will be around to inspire more students. Sounds kinda mushy, but yeah, I think that would have to be it…

Just like Lora, that was my goal last year when I was still in high school with the team. I wanted to teach the people about engineering and the shop so later they can teach those knownledge to incomming kids. Unfortunatly I was too caught up with building the robot and being the drivers that I didn’t teach as much as I wanted to. So this year, my new year’s resolution is:

To completely forget about being the center of attention and concentrate on training the new people with everything I got.

Another related resolution is to stay with this year’s team until they kick me out of the shop =P
