    Euros coming up:

    3x3 WF: podium+both NR's (would be still happy with being in the top5^^)
    Megaminx: top5 in finals
    Pyraminx: sub4.5
    BLD: decent mean, sub1:15

    Yeah, those are my only goals for this comp, but I'm competing in lots of others events of course, but I don't care too much about them, my official results are already satistifying right there ^^
    And of course met and talk to some famous cubers and have a lot of fun ^^

    Overall the best comp I've ever had, my first 3 day comp, too! Only my feet results were a bit disappointing, but you can't expect everything to run smoothly, right? :D

    2x2: x3 sub 5 ao12............... DONE (4.84, 4.96, 4.92)
    3x3: sub 18 ao12 and graduate from sub 20 thread (17.81 ao12, 2/3 on sub 20 thread, I lost a corner piece though, waiting on replacement part)
    4x4: sub 1 single and sub 1:10 ao5 DONE (59.50 single, 1:04.xx ao5)
    5x5: sub 2 single and sub 2:15 ao5 NO (2:14.xx single, 2:22 ao5)
    6x6: sub 5 single and actually practice on it NO (5:24 single, Yes, I have begun practicing 6x6.)
    Pyra: sub 10 ao100................DONE (9.84)
    Mega: sub 3 ao5, and actually start doing mega....................DONE (2:54.53)
    skewb: sub 10 single and sub 20 ao12 (I suck, I know).............DONE (8.84, 14.28) I guess I am a little better than I thought.
    2-5: sub 4 and sub 4:30 ao5 (4:17.xx ao5, still no sub 4)
    Got a 4:00.21 2-5. :( almost....

    Overall I am extremely satisfied with my improvement over the last month and a half. I think I am going to start focusing mostly on 3x3 and 5x5, and try to get some more blind solves. (Current pb for blind is around 9 minutes.)

    Goal: Achieve sub -20 time...
    Deadline:31-aug-2k16
    Now I avg around 40 seconds
    So basically I want to half my time in one month.:)
     
  14. no comps on the WCA website, so no:(
    If do go to a comp, I'm pretty confident I can get sub 40, as long as I don't DNF all three solves
    Super close to finishing ZBLL.... Just need 4 more COLL sets
