Multi-Blind: Subhour 42 cubes at home, accuracy not important (currently done 24)
Get official African Record because it is long overdue tbh
3bld: sub 50 global, sub 50 official single
4bld: official sub 5:30, learn 3 style maybe
5bld: AfR with sub 12, learn 3 style maybe

3x3: Sub 12 global, sub 7 single at home
4x4: sub 40ish global
5x5: sub 1:20 global
6x6: sub 3(dont practice much)
7x7: sub 5(same ^)
Mega, skewb, sq1, pyra: Be top 10 nationally in avg and single (mostly already)
FMC: git gud (like 30 avg)
OH: like sub 25 would be cool. or 23

1. Get sub 30 consistently (currently 50sec)
You don't need full OLL or PLL to get sub 30. I'm right around that mark and I just use 4lll. The main think you should work on is F2L and Cross. Maybe practice doing 4lll fast, but you don't need 2 or 3 look.

1. Get more cubes so that I don’t have to use my Rubik’s brand
Here's a good guide to 3x3s to help decide what's best for your budget:

Yep I know :) that’s what everyone is saying and it is definitely true but I don’t like practicing 100% of the time i cube. I learn one alg every weekend and the rest is training F2L and color neutrality. I’m enjoying learning algs.

5x5 BLD: SR Single?
Uhhh, let's avoid that...you can have 4x4 BLD SR until I get a success, haha.

Also want to do more focused practice and attend at least 4 competitions. I also want to possibly help the organizers at these competitions, so we can have more of them in the future.
I completely agree, and that is really my only real goal for 2020 since I can't get god times cubing, is to get more involved with the community, get more competitions held, and get Colorado cubers more competition and involved as a whole since a lot of people seem to want that, and I am hoping to be a main coordinator for all with communication with other cubers and delegates, so that way Colorado can get the comps that they want.

So all in all that is my goal for 2020.

Yeah, first I need to learn 4BLD, but I figured that the end of 2020 is a year away, so I have plenty of time to learn and possibly get a success at a competition. I do realize that some of my goals are ambitious, but the end of 2020 is quite a while from now and I don't really consistently practice right now except for with 3x3.

Somewhere in the cubing universe
1. Get sub 30 consistently (currently 50sec)
2. Learn Full OLL (learning full pll until this year is over)
3. Learn a 4x4 method (currently beginners method but i forgot everything because i focused on 3x3)
4.collect every flagship 3x3 from moyu gan and qiyi that will come out :D
You should be able to achieve this pretty easily... I got from sub-50 to sub-30 in about 1 month of practice and learning. I would improve your F2L and learn 4LLL

My 2020 goals including increasing my 3x3 knowledge and beginning to speed solve big cubes which I've always solved casually:

3x3: Focus on cross efficiency and smart solutions to F2L. Learn new finger tricks to break bad habits. Average sub 30 consistently (currently ~45s)
4x4: 2:30 average consistently (currently ~6mins w/ less than (10) timed solves under my belt)
BLD: Relearn blind (I did it a lot in college) and successfully complete multi-blind solves for the first time ever
Megaminx: Learn a speed method and actually begin speed solving this puzzle (I've never timed a minx solve but i really like the mechanics)
Square-1: solve it! I'm trying to figure it out intuitively but haven't cracked it yet

Go to a competition for the 1st time ever...This is mostly to engage with the community and obviously not to podium

If you’re going to a competition, especially for the first time, your goal should not be to podium. Your motive is absolutely correct.
