I'm a sub-dedicated cuber in Britain who is averaging 30 seconds with his speedcube. I first picked up a cube back in November 2018, and tried to solve it, and only ended up with an unpermuted face. Then I got a proper Rubik's Brand cube, and decided to learn how to solve the cube using the LBL method. I lost interest for quite a long time after that, until I was messing around on the internet and found this interesting method, Petrus. It took me like a month to learn, and then a couple more weeks to get it sub 1 min. I got a MoYu AoLong V2 and then started some serious practise. Then it was a slow crawl all the way from around sub 50 to sub 40. August 22nd received Moyu Weilong GTS2M and started dropping to 30.
Quest for Sub 8 Petrus started September, now sub 30, high twenties.
