Non Cubing

4x4 catch up to kiwicuber. Even those I'm 30 seconds slower currently.
Feet same as 4x4
Good luck, sub-1 4x4 podium at least at next nats :)
Feet probably depends a lot on my motivation to improve :p

5x5+ - Make top 100 in my country(not that hard when no more than 30 people are registered for the events)
Sounds really difficult with NZ's 22 5x5 , 5 6x6 and 6 7x7 competitors (single not even average).

Hmm... done this already on first day of the year. Next up is sub-3 Ao5 then sub-3 Ao12.
Ok, I guess this year is starting off nicely for 5x5... already done sub-3 Ao5 as well. Maybe I should aim a little higher heh... like sub-2:30? I wasn't expecting this though because before today I didn't have any sub-3... in fact sub-3:30 was good. Then all of a sudden sub-3 isn't so hard?

No big goals from me, I'll be happy if I improve.

Learn full WV
Beat all of my PBs in the events I care about (3x3, OH and all the BLD events)
Hopefully go to Euro 2014 and at least one National Comp.
