Woot woot, let's go!

2x2: Learn full CLL, sub 4.5 avg.
3x3: Sub 12 avg. I average 17 after 8 months of cubing, so I think I can do it :p
4x4: Learn FULL Yau, Sub 1 possibly?
5x5: Get decent, have an official avg.
6x6: Get one.
7x7: Get one.
OH: Sub 30, use ZZ.
Feet: Continue to hate it.
Pyra: Learn full 1-flip, sub 8 avg.
Skewb: Skewb is frustrating.
Square 1: Be sub 45, and actually get one.
Megaminx: Get a DaYan, and actually be decent.
3BLD: Actually finish learning it.
4BLD: Maybe learn it?
5BLD: lolno
MBLD: Maybe?

Algorithms:
- Full CLL for 2x2
- Full OLL
- Some WV
- Some VLS
- Full Sarah's Intermediate for Skewb


Life Goals:

- Play more Town of Salem
- Be active in local school groups
- Get good grades, and have fun! :D
- Actually have a decent birthday, I always screw up near something like this

Overall, I don't think this will be too hard. 3x3, 4x4 and OH are the only ones where I'm pushing it.

Cubing:
Go to a comp.

Other:
Get good grades (AAABB or better would be nice.
Start getting into revising properly (god I'm 16 I should really be past getting good habits)
Do homework on time
Getting to nationals for swimming would be nice (the real nationals not the schools and colleges one (slightly dodgy and unrealistic but you have to dream big don't you? :))

every non-WCA puzzle that no one cares about: UWR
Good luck with beating the Gigaminx and Mirror block ones. :p
