On a long train journey, Smashin' PBs one a stop

My school is the exact same, and if someone knows how to solve the rubick's cube, they just don't practise. :( hope that will change. Anyway my accomplishment is getting my first sub 20 solve with a new method (roux).
Do you realize that it's a post from 2007?
Btw badmephisto hasn't been active since '09.
Also btw my friends are the same too except for one who is sub 15 on 3x3 and sub 4 on pyra

PB2 or PB3, I don't remember.
0.3 away from my overall PB

1. 45.44 R++ D-- R++ D++ R++ D-- R++ D++ R-- D++ U
R-- D-- R-- D++ R-- D++ R-- D-- R-- D++ U
R++ D-- R++ D++ R++ D-- R-- D++ R-- D-- U'
R-- D-- R-- D++ R++ D-- R++ D++ R++ D++ U
R++ D-- R++ D++ R-- D++ R++ D-- R++ D++ U
R-- D-- R-- D++ R-- D++ R-- D++ R++ D++ U
R-- D++ R++ D++ R-- D-- R-- D++ R++ D-- U'

I've also only recently gotten back into megaminx, and my session is like 6 seconds slower than what it was when I was active (62 and 56). It was quite surprising to say the least.

I am finally averaging under 20 seconds on 3 by 3 :

(this is on a twisty timer)

It took a lot of effort to get here. At one point, I felt really bad when my average slipped over 38 seconds. But, now it is under 20!!!
I want to thank you all for this. It would have been impossible to get here without so much help and support (and the RSM 2020 cube, recommended by you all).

It took me 5 months to get from sub-40 to sub-30, but on the other hand, it took me just 3 months to get from sub-30 to sub-20.
So, it clearly shows that this website (I joined it just before I became sub-30) has made the difference. I am really grateful. I hope I will receive a lot of help and support once more
when I attempt to get to sub-10.

planning on maining HK since I'm bored with other methods at the moment.
for all these solves I used normal f2l-1 (no eo) CLL,L5E(intuitive) and I'm really not sure on which variant to choose?

Sub 1m on void cube today (well technically an ordinary 3x3 without centre caps).

57.83s, only the 5th time I've ever gone below 1m on a 3x3. :D

I just wish I could solve the 3x3 stage on big cubes that fast. :p

for hiese I used heise blockbuilding and ocll pll
sorry if some of the methods were very simular, was kinda stretching to find my 12 fastest "methods"
the methods were in a list to do in order before I started, so there was no method-scramble advantages(unless accidental).
freeZZ is like freefop, EO than blockbuild however.
ones second, forgot to add method names let me edit that in:
1.ZZ(cross)
2.ZZ(line)
3.freeZZ
4.petrus
5.freefop
6.mehta(l5E)
7..HK(l5E)
8..CFOP
9.roux
10.skis
11.waterman
12.heise
