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 just got my first sub 30 on 3x3 (29.36) after about 2 months of interrupted cubing. I know full intuitive F2L, beginner OLL, and beginner PLL. Are there any other techniques that you would recommend to improve my times even more? It would be great if I could hear from you

Congrats. Now it's time to learn Full OLL and PLL (Probably PLL first, but thats just the order I'm doing it in. There's a whole thread dedicated to this stuff and it's linked here

I recommend learning some easy plls like J perms, or commonly occurring plls like the G perms. I wouldn't bother with things like N perms, or anything uncommon like that yet. You could also learn some better finger tricks for your algorithms. And by the way, congrats!

I would say that you maybe start learning the basic PLLs or the easiest ones and just do some solves to get things more into practice and muscle memory. And there's also a thread like this to post your accomplishments and also a thread like this and this to ask questions like that on 3x3.

Ah yes, that guide is really good for CFOP users and is awesome that @Zubin Park created it and also is updating it for free!!! So be sure to check it out.

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.
