i got my first timed solve on the master kilominx today a few hours after i got it in the mail today. 19:37.220. I hope to get a sub-19 minute solve soon.

Edit: the second solve was a sub-17:30 at 17:28.513

Another Edit: The third solve was a DNF because an accidental timer stoppage at 12:07.784 for a DNF Mo3. Not a good start for my first master kilominx Mo3.

Yet another Edit: I just finished my first ever Ao5 on the master kilominx and here are the times:
1. 19:37.220
2. 17.28.513
3. DNF (timer stop in middle of solve)
4. 17:35.969
5. 14:24.842
Ao5: 18:13.901
tomorrow will probably finish my first ever Ao12

More editing: I got my first sub-14 of 13:35.774 topping off my PB Ao5 of 16:29.775. Thats my first sub-16:30 Ao5.

Even More Editing: I got my first ever sub-12:30 of 12:26.117 to top off my PB Ao5 (first sub-15:30) of 15:12.195

A little more editing: PB A5 14:07.796 (will probably be beaten soon)

You’ll be sub-30 and beyond in no time! I was looking back at my old PB sheet, and in February 2019, my PB single was a 26, and I’ve already gotten 2 sub-11s in just a little over 1.5 years!

Not an accomplishment as such, but I've just ordered a 10x10 & 11x11, so watch this space.

They've arrived (both MFJS Meilongs), and are surpringly smooth-turning. No idea how long they'll take to solve though, possibly 1.5 hours for the 10, and 2h for the 11?

I solved a 2x2 Blindfolded in front of my entire English class.
It all started on mask break last week (we spread out, take masks off, talk at a distance, etc.) when I decided to do it. It was a success, and some people saw it. A lot of people were talking about it, and the teacher asked me if I would do it for the class. I said sure.
OK, so yesterday, Monday October 12, 2020, at the beginning of 4th block, I get up to the front of the class, and my teacher is scrambling it with the class watching. It's a bit nerve-wracking.
He hands it to me, and someone starts their stopwatch like he told them, as per my suggestions to be as close to WCA guidelines as possible.
I inspect and don the blindfold. It's a 4-letter memo. I turn the cube, take off the blindfold, and it's 1 swap off. (Literally just a Y perm w/ no AUF)
My English teacher asks me to give it another try since it was so close, and I say yes.
The next time, it's a 10-letter memo, if you include two corner twists. I do the 6 swaps, and those corners remain. I forget how to swap those, rotate them using an alg I know (by doing z' R'D'RDR'D'RDU'D'R'DRD'R'DRU) As I do the final move, the entire class cheers. They were cheering my last name over and over. It was great.
So yeah.

Closed off my fourth 10k session (4th June to today).

# of sub-10 singles: 184 → 291 (was hoping to hit 300…)
# of sub-9 singles: 25 → 56 (still more than double!)
# of sub-8 singles: 1 → 8 (neato)
DNFs: 37 → 44 (not good…)
Average: 13.437 → 12.990
Median: 13.250 → 12.817
Best ao1000: 13.022 → 12.772

Also finally switched from middle-ring to pinky-ring D2 for the A perms (somewhere around the 8000th solve in). Didn't learn any new ZBLL cases, though I did switch out a couple of algs here and there and replaced/added some OLL algs.
