Why Robotics is Fun: Part 2

When I last left off we were at my regional VEX competition. Now we go on to the state level.
Because I live in Hawaii, our school team had to travel islands to attend the state VEX competition. That means we are away from home; that means we are away from our parents. Immediately my teammates and I made plans for what we were gonna do. It was a 3-day 2-night deal so some damage was going to be done.


(FYI I'm not gonna talk about the actual competition, just what we did outside of it. In short, we lost :P)
The first night, we met up with one of my friends in college that lived there. Before he came, however, our robotics team explored the long strip of beach and hotels called Waikiki. I witnessed my first street show, and participated in the scientific act of observing hooker paths and schedules. I also witnessed one of my friends trying to hit on a hooker and get her back to our room.

(Sorry this is just text, I have no pictures to share)

When we finally met up with my friend after waiting in the cold outside our hotel, we were pleasantly surprised at what he brought; the infamous Four Loko. This was before the watering down of this "dangerous" drink, so we happily drank it; I haphazardly chugged it, and got wasted. Thus ends our first night. Check back later for more stories and more right here on Take a Break!

  4. It's awesome to see that you go out to competitions. When I did a robotics class, we just stayed in the class.
