Close Relationships in the team?

Post by PoisonedLove » January 24th, 2009, 1:02 pm

Okay so are you becoming really good friends with the people on your team?
Currently I am up here helping a friend with the Egg-O-Naut event and him and I are really close (though he's teasing me and I may have to get him later)
There are also some other dear people that I have on the team.

What about you all?
Are you forming some close bonds with your teammates?
Is this your first year or have you been in it for a while?
This is actually my third year in Science Olympiad

Kinda. I find that being in building events together and failing miserably together helps build friendships. I would know. My friend and I built like 4 trajectories last year, and every single one either broke or sucked.

Also, your text is small.

Yeah, I know the text is small
I'm not exactly sure why, but I've always liked it that way O_o

And yeah, it seems that being in Remote Sensing with this one guy and having to study a LOT has made us pretty close. I'm not in any of the building events though. However, I do help them with the events a lot.

It seems that everyone on our team is friends. But that could be because almost half our school is on the team. There are times when you just want to punch people in the face because they annoy you, but you don't cuz you need them. And I've noticed that events tear friendships apart on our team. Everything gets patched up when it's over, but still. My friend and I did the Robot Ramble for two years and we fought almost the entire time last year because of conflicting ideas. This year we're back on good terms 'cuz we're no longer in events together.

Well sometimes I get annoyed with the newest members of the team cause they don't want to actually work and all that so...that sometimes causes problems. But other than that, we're pretty good. I've seen the guys building the Electric Vehicles get into arguments because of clashing ideas, but that's about it.

Same with our team. We're all friends. And every year we get closer. And then sometimes it gets awkward :roll:
09 events: Disease detectives, Road scholar, wright stuff, pentathalon, and robo-cross.

It's all fun and games until someone gets their fingers stuck together with super glue, then it's just funny!

Can't be as awkward as one of the members trying to beat you over the head with a yardstick and then dancing on a pole saying really horrible things ^^;;
