I checked my globals in all of my events from the end of 2017, and then compared them with my current ones:
3x3: I was sub 17, now sub 13
4x4: Sub 2:30, now sub 53
5x5: 4:30 - 1:35
6x6: -- to 3:30
OH: 1:00 - 24
SQ1: None to WR270
Pyra - 17 average to now sub 7
Mega: 3:00 to 1:30

I think I'd like to be top 100 in the world for square one, and sub 1 in mega, sub 1:15 in 5x5, sub 40 in 4x4, and sub 17 in OH
Just saying hi because of your progress in 3x3 in the last year. I am now sub 17 and would love to be sub 13 one year from now. Can you offer any particular advice on how you achieved this?

Thanks and good luck next year!

I'd like to get more into cubing again this year.

Finally get sub 12 on 3x3.
Get better at Blind events (learn 4BLD at least)
Make my clock not suck
Get decent feet results before it gets removed.
Post official solves within a week of the comp they were done at.
Don't be a complete noob at OH and Squan.
Organize a comp (or at least get a good plan for one in 2020)
Learn more FMC stuff
Defend my 6x6 and 7x7 state records
Learn some COLL and edge control.
Don't be a nub (this is impossible)

E: got sub 13 the last day of 2018, so changed first goal to sub 12.

I'd like to actually be active in the cubing scene again. I haven't competed in a few years.
-Become sub-60 on Megaminx. Currently around 1:12
-Compete like at all in 2019
-I guess I'd really like to just be more active in terms of talking with other cubers online. I did join the reddit cubing discord and honestly it's just too much of a nightmare. I definitely learned that the people in that thing are not there to help you nor are they there to be your friend. Anyway, hopefully I can become active on this forum again.

Maybe I can finally make cuber friends.

Close enough to the end of the year, let’s see how I did on limited practice and set some goals:

Looking back at my goals from last year I've come remarkably close. I'll wait until the end of the year to post on that thread how I've done on those.

So by the end of 2018:
2x2: Currently ~10 seconds. Goal: 10 seconds Yeah! Did it!
3x3: Currently ~30 seconds. Goal: learn full OLL, sub-25 No. More OLLs, running about 28 seconds.
4x4: Currently ~1:30. Goal: Sub-1:10, sub-1:00 single No, actually got a bit slower.
5x5: Currently ~2:45-3:00. Goal: Sub-2:20, sub-2:00 single. No. About 2:40 average, sub-2:10 single.
6x6: Currently ~5:10. Goal: Sub-4:00, sub-3:00 single, get to 2,000 timed solves. No. All counts. No real progress.
7x7: Currently ~8:20. Goal: Sub 6:30, sub-5:00 single, get to 1,000 solves. No. Averaging about 7:00-7:15.
Megaminx: Currently ~3:20. Goal: Sub-3:00 Yeah! About 2:40 average!
OH: I don't care. I'll probably get to sub-45 if I get everything else. Pretty close, actually. Running about 50-55.
3BLD: practice. Since successes are still scarcer than hen's teeth I don't know what a good time is. No real progress, got a 4:2x DNF though.
Big blind and MBLD: I need to figure out 3BLD first, but I really want to do big blind. Moon shot goal would be at least one success for each of 4-7. Same.
Feet: Currently ~2:00. Goal: Sub-1:30 with sub-1:00 single. Close. Averaging about 1:40, single about 1:10.
Square-1: don't forget how to solve it. Hmm. This should have been easy.
Skewb and pyraminx don't relearn. Pyraminx failed, I relearned it. Not fast: averaging about 20 seconds. Skewb I haven’t relearned since I don’t have one, but there’s a new one in the mailbox :-(
Clock: don't learn. Yeah!
FMC: maybe practice. Nope.
Gigaminx: sub-20:00 Nope.

Edit: more optimistic goals.
This year, global averages unless otherwise noted:
- 2x2: 10s
- 3x3: sub-24
- 4x4: sub-1:20
- 5x5: sub-2:15
- 6x6: sub-4:30
- 7x7: sub-6:30
- Megaminx: sub-2:20
- Square-1: sub-1:45
- OH: sub-50
- Skewb: official average
- Pyraminx: official average
- Clock: maybe official average
- 3BLD: official single, sub-4:00 mean at home
- 4BLD: official single, at home mean
- 5BLD: at home single
- MBLD: 4 points, ideally official.
- FMC: nah.
- Feet: most important and most ambitious, sub-1:00 official average.

Other:
- Run a marathon, hopefully sub-4:00:00
- Convince WCA to keep Feet as an official event.
- End next year with all my bills paid and no money in the bank.

My main cubing goal for 2019:
Making the Freshcuber Podcast a success that will be known well in the german speedcubing community and that has many interesting interviews/talks with cubers.

And also: Sub-25 official average on 3x3.
PBs in many events.
Loosing the title as germanys oldest speedcuber. :)
