3BLD: average sub-1:30
Multi: 10/10
OH: NR
3x3: get my Roux faster than my CFOP again

Set too many last time, and these are all achievable, so hopefully I can get more than 1-2 this year.
I think I've really underestimated how much BLD I would be doing. I'm still on track for, but haven't completed, the other three goals.

(for the 3x3 goal, I'd like to be consistently faster, to the point where being method neutral no longer benefits me)

Good time for a check up:

Seems a little early for New Year's Resolutions, but why not:

"Global" averages:
2x2: Currently ~11 seconds, Goal: sub-10
3x3: Currently ~33 seconds, Goal: Sub-25, Maybe learn ZZ
4x4: Currently ~1:55, Goal: Sub-1:30
5x5: Currently ~3:40, Goal: Sub-2:30
6x6: Currently ~7:00, Goal: Sub-4:30
7x7: Currently don't have one, Goal: Sub-6:30
Megaminx: Currently ~4:30, Goal: Sub-3:00
Square-1: Currently ~2:00+, Goal: Sub-45
Feet: Currently ~3:00, Goal: Sub 1:30
3x3 OH: Currently ~1:15, Goal: Sub-45
FMC: Currently little practice, averaging around 45-50, Goal: 35
3BLD: Currently ~30% success, Goal: Sub-2:30, learn M2
4BLD: Currently: haven't tried, Goal: 50% Success
5BLD: Currently: haven't tried, Goal: 50% Success
6BLD: Currently: haven't tried, Goal: 1 Success
7BLD: Currently: haven't tried, Goal: 1 Success
MBLD: Currently: haven't tried, Goal: 4/4
Clock and Pyraminx: continue to avoid learning how to solve
Skewb: forget how to solve (I may have already accomplished this one, but I'm afraid if I try it to find out I'll remember).

6x6 and 7x7 might be a bit ambitious, but I think everything else is achievable.
I think 4x4, megaminx, and maybe 6x6 are achievable. Maybe 5x5 if I put a lot of work into it. I got a 2:38 PB single today. Everything else could be achieved if I did nothing but cube for the rest of the year.

Don't be a socially awkward 10 yr old at comps like last year
Lol. I actually noticed you at Wiscube 2016. You struck me as exceptionally mature for your age. Don't change a thing.

Make it to at least Worlds and UKC
3BLD: sub-1:10 official, average sub-1 at home
4BLD: sub-6 official, average sub-5 at home
5BLD: sub-20 official
MBLD: 10 points official
6BLD: success
4x4: sub-1 official average and global at home
5x5: sub-2 official average and global at home (stretch goal)
Be a double good dad
Only 4BLD sub-6 official met so far, now shooting for sub-5. Other targets remain the same. The BLD targets are achievable given my times at home, but I'm unlikely to meet those 4x4 & 5x5 targets.

2x2: sub-5.5 avg (now 6.5)
3x3: sub-18 avg (now 21)
OH: sub-25 avg (now 35, maybe too ambitous there)
4x4: sub-1:40 avg (now 2:10)
5x5: sub-4:00 avg (best is 7-8 minutes)
Megaminx: sub-3:30 avg (was around 4:00 some months ago, this shouldn't be too hard if I practice)
Skewb: sub-12 avg (I was sub-16 once)
3BLD: just a success
Square-1: sub-45 avg (now 1:10)
Clock: sub-20 avg
Kilominx: sub-45 avg (now 1:10)
The one I care most is that sub-25 OH avg (not easy, now I'm barely sub-30), but I might get sub-18 at 3x3 (I'm at around 19.5), sub-1:40 4x4 (because that seems easy), and I'll try to get a 3BLD solve, but I'm not practicing the other events and probably won't until I get my main goals.

I've already been greening some goals throughout the year, but here's the official ~6 months update:

Competition goals:
3x3: Sub-8 single, sub-10 average I haven't met either of these but I'm close-ish. Just a bit of luck will get me there! no new goal
4x4: Sub-40 single, sub-45 average Got the average so barely, but my single is still sitting where it was a year ago. I really want the single, but otherwise no new goal
5x5: Sub-1:25 average Got it, but I think I can do better. Sub-1:15 single, Sub-1:20 average
2x2: Sub-2 single, sub-3 average. I'm pretty close to both, and they seem reasonable for the end of the year. no new goal
BLD: Sub-55 single. No, but I'm really satisfied with my current single (59). I don't feel the need to go for anything faster right now removing this goal
OH: Sub-15 single, sub-19 average I actually got the average in December, but I'm never going to beat it again. I can always hope on a lucky solve for the single! no new goal
FMC: Sub-27 single, sub-30 mean I've realized recently that I don't like doing FMC, but I still really want to beat my single. no new goal
Feet: NAR single and NR mean (32.87 and 39.10) Since I blew past this in February and am still getting faster, my new goal is sub-28 single, sub-32 mean
Mega: Sub-1:20 average I've gotten into Mega a lot recently so I want to be faster than this. Sub-1:05 single, sub-1:10 average
Pyra: Sub-3.5 single, sub-4.5 average I got these really early in the year, so I have new, more ambitious goals: Sub-2.4 single, sub-4 average
SQ-1: Sub-20 single, Sub-23 average Squan is another event I've discovered a love for, and I can definitely meet some more challenging goals: Sub-15 single, Sub-20 average
Clock: No I still don't love Clock, but I did get a bit faster and met my new goals of sub-10 single, sub-12 average. Thus, no new goal
Skewb: Sub-5 single I have pretty much unbeatable Skewb PBs right now, so no new goal
6x6: Sub-2:40 single, sub-2:45 mean I improved pretty fast at big cubes, and I really want the 6x6 state records back: Sub-2:20 single, Sub-2:30 mean
7x7: Sub-3:50 single, sub-4:00 mean I have really good 7x7 PBs right now, but I think I can still do better: Sub-3:30 single, Sub-3:40 mean
4BLD: Sub-5:30 single. Not yet, and I think this is a good goal to keep. no new goal
5BLD: Sub-12:00 single. This is actually too ambitious considering how hard it is to get a success, so now I'm only looking for a sub-15:00 single
MBLD: >=15 points. I've realized that I don't even like Multi, and 13 points is quite satisfying for the moment. removing this goal

45 comps (lifetime). Need to average 1.5 a month. I have 39 right now and another 4 I'm for sure going to, so I might actually be able to make it to 50 comps (lifetime)
15 states I'm at 12, but I have absolutely no new ones on the horizon. Random comps might pop up though. No new goal
Top 10 NR in all BigBLD events Since a lot of people got pretty fast, this is actually harder than my time goals. I don't really care about this any more, so I'm removing this goal
4BLD mean maaaaaybe I've missed it by three wings, so I think I can do it No new goal

Other cubing goals:
Corner and center comms for BLD I don't really feel like learning corner comms right now, but I am trying to standardize center comms, so my new goal is just to learn center comms for BLD
Switch to all stickerless puzzles I'm switching between a couple 3x3's, one of which isn't stickerless, but otherwise I'm all done! No new goal
4LLL for Mega Wow, I actually fixed one of my horrible cubing habits! No new goal
More memo rooms for MBLD Maybe someday... No new goal
Make Nats finals in Pyra and BLD This one is still in the future No new goal
Stop using bad algs for everything Not really, but I don't remember how bad my algs actually were in December No new goal
Stop using bad turning styles for OH and SQ-1 Halfway there, I've switched for SQ-1 but not OH No new goal
Keep using bad cubes Here is a sampler of comments my cubes have received: "That looks painful to turn" "This cube is disgusting" "This cube is cancer" "WHY?" So I think I've succeeded No new goal
Teach at least two people to solve, one in my family and one outside my family My sister is learning and I've kind of gotten other people into it, so my status for this goal is "sort of" No new goal
Keep all comps that I organize on schedule and fun for everyone No comment. No new goal

Noncubing goals (though some of them apply to cubing too):
Stop caring what people think about me Well, I've kind of moved from caring some about what everyone thinks to caring a lot about what a very very small number of people thinks. No new goal
Be nicer to people If anything I've gotten less nice. Need to work on that one. No new goal
Make some money I am in the process now, which is much better than I could have said 6 months ago! No new goal
Save some of that money Will do. No new goal
Keep a perfect driving record So far! No new goal
Learn to deal with friends moving away I don't think it will be that bad, honestly, and I'm meeting new people all the time! Removing this goal
Stay alive, I guess The fact that I'm even making this post answers the question... No new goal

I've compiled all of my revised goals and some new ones, and they'll be my goals for the rest of the year:

3x3: Sub-8 single, sub-10 average

Let's see how I'm doing

heh I'm bad at these

2x2: sub-2.5 average official, idc about single Nope
3x3: sub-8 average official, sub-7 single Got the single :)
4x4: sub-40 average official, my 4x4 official single is way better than I ever thought it would be so I'm happy Gave up on 4x4
5x5: sub-1:20 global I have an official sub 1:20 average, good enough
Pyra: sub-4.5 average official 4.51 :(
Mega: try and get better at it. I'm sub-9 but can't do mega for crap, it's kinda embarrassing Still can't do it for crap, but my official single PB is my overall PB.
Skewb: lol lol
Square-1: sub-11 official average, sub-9 single. If I wanna be ambitious, try and hit top 10 globally I got both! No top 10 world ranking though, but that'll change soon ;)
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. I only made Square-1 finals, but I podiumed, which honestly makes up for everything else.

Real Life Stuff
School: not get totally pooped on by IB. I also have to start doing college prep stuff so yay for me I actually did super well junior year
Sports: I'm doing ok so I don't have many goals. Maybe for tennis, play singles for the team? I'm swim team captain now, tennis is coming in a couple months though.
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. I gave up on language learning :(

Oooh the year's 2/3 done. Let's check again!

Bold text = my comments.

2x2 - sub-4 global Still no.
3x3 - sub-12 global, sub-10 average in comp Sub-12 global, but no sub-10 comp average.
4x4 - sub-50 global Yeah, basically.
5x5 - sub-1:40 global Low 1:40s, so definitely close.
6x6 - sub-3:10 global Depends so much on the day. Some days I'm sub-3 and some I'm around 3:15. I'll say yes though.
7x7 - sub-5:00 global Yeah, just barely.
Pyra - sub-3 global, sub-1.5 single in comp, sub-2.5 average in comp Nope, but I average ~3.2 globally.
Mega - sub-1:00 global Nah, still around 1:07-1:08.
Sq-1 - sub-15 global, sub-10 single in comp No.
Skewb - sub-6 global, sub-4 single in comp, sub-5 average in comp Basically sub-6 globally, sub-4 single, 5.23 average.
Clock - sub-15 global Yes, but only when I use Jason Bilgrei's Clock, lol.
3x3 OH - sub-30 global Yes.
3x3 BLD - sub-2:00 global, learn M2, use some commutators Yes, when I get a success it's usually around 1:30.
3x3 Feet - sub-35 global, get NR or CR single or mean None of this.
3x3 FMC - sub-31 global, sub-30 single in comp Nope.
3x3 MBLD - 8 point PB or higher No, currently 7/7.
4x4 BLD - sub-18:00 single, any official single 10:24 single at home; still no official single.
5x5 BLD - any success, preferably official Yes; no official single though.

Other cubing goals:
Hit 40K subscribers on YouTube 34K right now. 40K seems unlikely, but it could happen if the next 4 months are good.
Have results in every event officially Still 16/18, although I can at least do them all at home.
Organize a competition Definitely not before 2017 ends, but possibly next year.

Other life goals:
Learn to drive Yup.
Get a 97.00 or higher GPA this school year (96.xx is fine, but 97 would be nice, lol) 97.00 flat at the end of the year. Pretty happy with that, haha.
Do things Yup.
Go to places Yup.
Meet people Yup.
Learn more programming languages Yup.
Solve a multitude of major world issues Nope.
Pet my cats Yup.
That brings me from 10.5/29 last time I checked to 15/29. 51.7% done 66% through the year. Not bad, but it could definitely be better.

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

Skewb: sub 5 with advanced lol not at all
Pyra: sub 4? sort of
Square-1: sub 13 yeah
Mega: sub 55? not at all, been stuck at 57 for almost a year
Do some casual BLD throughout the year, maybe practice some 5bld no :/
Do some big cube practice, maybe get a new 7x7 and get to sub 4 (quite achievable imo) yeah did lots of 7x7 and 5x5
Go to worlds yup!
still 4 months to go, I might be able to do skewb and mega :D lets see
