Yes one year of cubing ! Big moment for me
I want to thanks all the community who have been so kind to me.
I've been to 3 comps and met some really nice people !
Finishing this first year with a 12.50 ao100 PB, I'm really happy of my progress considering that I didn't had that much time to cube. (Pretty sure that if I would have been jobless, I would be averaging in the 8.5 lol). I also got a 6.67 LL Skip PB a few weeks ago.
I trained some 5x5 too (I'm averaging low 2m) and to be fair if I get one day to Top 5 of my country, it might be that event. :D

A last time, thanks to all of you.
I plan to cube a little less this year but I hope to go to more comps :)
Congrats! Its cool that people have the dedacation to keep a hobby for a whole year!

Good luck on your journey! -Bad

It's been 5 years since my first 3x3 solve! To commemorate, I decided to scramble up all my puzzles (142 of them) and solve them all in one sitting. I started at around 6:30 and finished right before midnight!

...never again
I used to do that all the time(I only have like 15 puzzles), then I got a 9x9 and stopped :p

Which was the hardest/took the longest?

I just got my first sub-9 Ao5 :) Those were the first solves of this session. (But I did do a bunch of solves before.)

Unfortunately I messed up the Ao12 quite a bit so this wasn't even sub-10:

counting 13 and 12 really sucks.
but also counting 7.60 lol

The 6.88 is PB, feels good after not getting a PB in like 6 months or more; finally sub-7
I inspected Cross+1, full step is cool even though LL was pretty easy, without any AUF lol
also the tps is pretty crazy for me.

54 Moves in 6.88 Seconds = 7.84 TPS :D

also GTS2 M is the best

New PB: 24.431. Easy first and second blocks - makes me realize how bad my blockbuilding is, and how much faster I could be if I improved it.

All averages are sub-40. Next time-related goal is a sub-35 ao100.

Learned beginner SSC method, and figured out my own algorithms for solving corners intuitively (which are not really efficient). Learned PCMS after having fun with SSC.

SSC is much, much better than PCMS

I challenge you to beat my time! I just got it today and I was super excited! Here is the replay. (my name on the site is Silthead)
I've been practicing for a few weeks to get this.
Wow, congrats! Very nice solve, your turning was really smooth during the F2L
You should customize your cube a bit, the default one looks boring ;)

I should actually go to bed but I did some solves.
After the first 4 solves I had 9.26, 7.81, 10.65, 9.57.
And on the fifth solve I got another 7.81 and was like "WTF counting 7" and then looked on the screen and it was a 8.88 Ao5, new PB by 0.09.
And then I got this scramble:
U F2 R F2 U2 L2 F2 L' D2 U2 B2 R U2 D' F2 R F R' F L
one move cross, premade pair and easy second pair
I got another 7 on it.

This gives me a new PB Ao5 of 8.44 with two counting 7s lol

I failed the Ao12 and got 10.04 oof
