Oh! The Places You'll Go!

How about Pennsylvania, ... Aboard the Appalachian Express?

I know. You would think the stress building up, would cause me to think on other subjects. I have tried to meditate, breath deeply, unwind... but I am so dedicated to spreading our Passion, our excitement about FIRST and FIRST 2102 Team Paradox, that I feel like I cannot let-up. I don't want to slip, or lose momentum.

So, I don the red pants, and I sweep aluminum filings, I buy one more giant pizza, and I sit up with two build team members, at four in the morning, as they push forward... For the Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology. They have the drive, the passion.

Challenging days, long nights... it can wear a person down, but when I see how this team has inspired others, when encouraging comments appear in Chickenblog, when a big donation arrives in the mail, when a FIRST alumni counts her self a fan of FIRST 2102 Team Paradox... I get re-ignited! I get excited! I feel like it is all worthwhile.

So, Perry Parrot-Ox, our mini-mascot in puppet form has made it across the country, and into the heart of an amazing young woman. Michaela, you are amazing, you know? Thank you for standing with us, and for us! I know I will hear your passionate cheers, with our own, from Vegas to St Louis!

Alex, Tatiana... anytime you want to get a little sleep...
No? Uh. Okay.
Go Robotics!
Go mini-bot!
