    I successfully taught a friend how to do BLD (OP/OP) a few weeks ago. He can now get under 10 minutes, and I'm transitioning him to M2. He still doesn't know a regular sighted method.

    Multi BLD 5/5 30:37.34 [15:18.76]

    The catch is I only brought one 3x3 on vacation with me so I had to use a 4x4, 5x5, 6x6 and 7x7, scrambled and solved 3x3 style.
     
  3. Wow, first 4bld success at 2nd try. Time 17:15. Funny how I had two letters wrong in my center memo but luckily I could remember them visually and that they were wrong. Didn't actually belive that I would get a success this soon... Weekly comp up next.

    The scramble had quite a few centers solved, that was cool:

    Not really too much of an accomplishment:

    26/30 MBLD in 1hr 14min 41.85s (~45min memo but so many pauses)

    University of California Los Angeles Please Be Quiet 2017. It's an all blind events comp happening next weekend that Kevin is organizing. And we don't have many people signed up so it's not certain whether or not we'll legally be able to hold two rounds of 3bld :/

    He's signed up already (the only first-timer). I tried to teach more people but they were busy (which is true) and felt like it wouldn't be enough time to learn (which I disagree with).

    We have 9 people signed up for 3BLD. And we should be getting at least 2 more as far as I am aware. I think we'll be fine for 2 rounds, but looks like 3 won't be happening. :( On the bright side, small competitions are always fun.

    2/2 MBLD in 8:37.92 [6:57.01], finally got a MBLD success. I kinda want to try to get decent at MBLD, but I'm focused on other things atm. Maybe later.
     
  19. Finally finished learning 3-Style for corners (only took me an entire year :p) and got some new PB singles. First a 47.19 with sub-30 execution, followed about ten solves later by a 46.68 with sub-15 memo. Contrary to how I may seem in the videos, I'm super excited about these!

    PB Ao5 and Single today. Very happy with the sub-50 memo on the Single, as well. My corners memo is steadily sub-20, but I still do lots of repetition on Edges to have the audio loop well memorized.

    Been improving quite rapidly. Actually today marks my 3rd week since I started doing full solves only, and dropped my average from sub-12 to sub-3 or so.
