3x3x3 single PB progression in the last 20 days: 11.126→10.73→10.57→10.51→8.33
Also I brought my ao12 PB from 14.90 to 14.58.
And I got my first sub-20 OH single. These are my OH PBs, all of which I achieved last night:
single: 17.69
ao5: 24.19
ao12: 25.83
ao50: 27.85
ao100: 28.44

I'm so happy to be at my best after all these years of cubing on and off and to still be making progress. There's no better feeling in the world than progress. I really need to get back at 2x2x2 and 4x4x4 though. My skill level with those has dropped recently cause I severely neglect them. But I will probably continue to neglect them for a bit cause I'm on a roll with other events. I just wish I had more time in my life so I could steadily progress with everything at once. I'm tired.

A thread for accomplishments, hence the title, "Accomplishments Thread".

Just post your accomplishments here. I decided to make an accomplishments thread because they have one in TwistyPuzzles and I think it would be nice to have one here too.

I'll start: I've finally gotten around to starting learning CLS! Hooray for me!:D So far, I only know about 6, but I'm learning a few everyday.
i average around 24.7 seconds on 3x3 and my pb single is 19.7.

is this good considering the fact that i use a rubiks speed cube xD

hopefully I can pull off a sub-4:10 official mean (which should bring me back to top 1000).
Update: Sub-3:50 mean, lol. That puts me around the low 600s in world rank. Also broke my overall PB in comp.

Other than that, I had nice 555 and mega averages, too: both around 1:25. Took a gamble on the first 555 solve and did OLLCP, and it gave me an EPLL skip with a time just below the cutoff. (Not hopeful for FMC because there are a lot of good people here today, but hey, we'll see in a few hours.)

Update 2:
2:20.x mean for 666, which should be mid-400s in world rank; somehow podiumed in FMC with a lucky 24 single pulling down the mean. BLD was garbage (double DNF + time limit) and I should have just immediately DNFed solve #2 after mistracing the corners, but everything else today went super great so I'm not going to beat myself up over that.

Update 3:
Random sub-13 average on 333. (Almost thought I would've made the second round when I checked Cubecomps, but then I noticed it's still ongoing and there are enough fast people left to push me out of top 30.) Now, as long as I MAKE CUTOFF FOR 444 asddsdfdsd that should be a complete PB sweep at this comp.

I think I finished T set for ZBLL?
The reason that I'm unsure is because I know that I know all of the ZBLLs for the normal COLL case, but I'm not sure if I learned good algs for the mirror COLL or if I am just mirroring them.

Also, since I learned the second to last set of Pi, I also technically finished Pi because I can jut mirror the algs. I do only have about 7 algs left for the set.

Yay, now onto finishing U.

L is going to be so bad.
S/As are going to be fine.

oh wait i still have H too urhgg

this is taking soo long

...I was able to recognize and use one of the very few ZBLLs I know...
Oh dear, I've literally been doing this for over two years...

At Long Island Winter 2019,I plus two'd twice out of an official 2.84 pyraminx average, and my 3.07 still stands.
Although I'm really disappointed, I'm going to try to do the tips more carefully in my future official pyraminx solves. I podiumed, so I'm a little happier.
I hope that I will finally achieve a sub 3 average at my next comp because I have failed a lot officially.

just had a really good ao12 for me :)

52.27.51.62,1:09.47,56.96,1:03.19,(1:17.25),58.30,1:15.53,46.21,(44.32),1:08.46,49.57=59.15

also got a pb ao3 of 52.99 and a pb ao5 of 54.74 in there (last 5 solves),don't know where the ao3 is

consistency isn't that great,but that's due to me still using sucky beginner's method for LL,this has given me motivation to keep learning 2-look PLL
