Don't fail at my next comp primarily.

3x3: sub-11 at home by end of 2017, sub-13 official avg
4x4: get goodish (i.e. sub 55)
2x2: break MO SR (sub 2.8) could be hard... Learn EG-1
5x5: get a real one (i just use a shengshou)
Pyra: get some decent official results (sub 5.5 avg at least)
Squan: learn algs
Skewb: get fast (Sub-6ish)
OH: practice, if I practiced I could be sub-20 but...
other cause I don't care about the other events:
Learn COLL
Get a clock cause why not
get a 4bld success then never do it again cause its lame and headachy
go to nats cause its close to me

heh I'm bad at these

2x2: sub-2.5 average official, idc about single
3x3: sub-8 average official, sub-7 single
4x4: sub-40 average official, my 4x4 official single is way better than I ever thought it would be so I'm happy
5x5: sub-1:20 global
Pyra: sub-4.5 average official
Mega: try and get better at it. I'm sub-9 but can't do mega for crap, it's kinda embarrassing
Skewb: lol
Square-1: sub-11 official average, sub-9 single. If I wanna be ambitious, try and hit top 10 globally
Everything else: idc
If I got to Nats: 2x2, 3x3, Pyra, and Squan finals. I was one place away from finals for 2x2 and Square-1, with my 2x2 average in semis being 0.01 seconds off of cutoff, which was a bummer. If I can go to Nats, I really wanna build off of that.

Real Life Stuff
School: not get totally pooped on by IB. I also have to start doing college prep stuff so yay for me
Sports: I'm doing ok so I don't have many goals. Maybe for tennis, play singles for the team?
Other hobbies: I just got back into language learning, and I'm trying to brush up on the courses I took on Duolingo, so hopefully I can keep that going. I don't have a lot of other hobbies.

2x2-sub 4, learn CLL

3x3-sub 15, try to do EO-Line BLD and learn ZZ-CT

4x4-sub 1, get a cube other then a Guansu

5x5-Sub 2:30

hope I will get a 6x6 and 7x7 for christmas!

skewb: sub 10

pyra: sub 8

solve a 3x3 BLD

learn M2

Edit 4/29/17

I can do EO-Line blindfolded, I don't think CT is a good method (Turning a non luck based event into one.)

I have another 4x4, but not sub 1

Not quite sub 2:30

I can do M2, but I still am transisting to it.

Edit 9/1/17

Sub 15 AO100 on 3x3, Mostly sub 14 though.
I have a sub 1...

Lol what was I thinking when I said sub 2:30 on 5x5, already sub 2:20.

I might pick skewb up again and finish learning kirjava/Meep.

Pyra is dumb.

I use r2 when I try to do 4BLD, but still like OP better.

if your going for a sub 8 average official average, you should aim for at least a sub 6 single

I can see myself not cubing much next year, so I'm not gonna set many goals:

Skewb: sub 5 with advanced
Pyra: sub 4?
Square-1: sub 13
Mega: sub 55?
Do some casual BLD throughout the year, maybe practice some 5bld
Do some big cube practice, maybe get a new 7x7 and get to sub 4 (quite achievable imo)
Go to worlds
