I'm gonna start this off early I guess...
My goals from last year were way too easy so I'm gonna try to make them super hard.
2x2: learn eg-1, sub 2.5 global
3x3: sub 8.5 average of 100 (practice look ahead, maybe learn more algs, optimize F2l)
4x4: sub 40 global average (get rid of crappy stuff)
5x5: sub 1:15 global (practice and stop rotating so much)
6x6: sub 2:20 global (same as 5x5)
7x7: sub 3:45 global (same as 5x5)
Square 1: sub 15 global (learn more eps, optimize cubeshape)
Skewb: sub 3.75 global (practice and algs)
OH: sub 15 global (practice and learn some old)
Megaminx: sub 1 (practice)
Pyra: sub 4 (learn more algs)
Clock: practice (nah)
Just practicing the rest would be nice

Also something that was missing from last year's thread is how I'm gonna accomplish this, so I also wrote that next to the stuff.

Cubing in general:

Attend at least 4 competitions (5/4), make it to Euro 2016, podium in one event at one comp.
Stay strong to never touch any Skewb, Square-1 or clock.

General:

Find a way to combine cubing and studies that doesn't result in me skipping every single course.
Learn a martial art, get back into piano, learn a language, read the ~200 unread books that feel bored at my home.
