Double-post in weekly competition 2022-01 and here (but here with two videos):
Got a valid result in all 35 events in this week's competition, including rare 6bld and 7bld
Should be the first to get 35 counting events

I am Finnish, European and World Champion and World Record holder in 3x3x3 with feet. Believe me ,it's a very useful skill! And I'm probably the only one who has got cuber's ankle.

Just solved my new face- turning Starminx (yay for late Christmas presents!) with minimal help. I used a tutorial but only for tips on what order to do things in. After I got the next step, I paused the video and worked on getting that next step done on my own. It was a challenge and took me all day, but I had a lot of fun figuring things out. I'm looking forward to giving it another shot tomorrow.

I had state auditions for choir today and I hadn't made it so I was pretty bummed out for the whole day. I was cubing to try and calm myself down and I realized that I got 2 sub 10s in a row. The next solve was a low 10 so I knew it was going to be a good average. The next solve ended up being a high 13, so to get a pb, I had to get a really fast time. I managed to get a 9.72 which led to a 9.90 ao5; my first ever sub 10 average. I'm still in shock. It took me over 3 years to get to this point and I'm very satisfied.

I just broke a bunch of pbs! 2X2 i got a pb average of 4.29 and a really great single of 1.85 (it was more like a 1.50 but I missed the spacebar, also I use Ortega), a pb pyraminx average of 7.90 (i use lbl) a pb 4x4 average of 1.45 minutes and a pb 4x4 single of 1.21 minutes. So I'm really happy with this, i got a pb average and single in all the events i do with a few exceptions (no 3x3 pbs, but i got a pb single and average a few days ago, scroll up. And no pyraminx single, but i did get a pretty good 5 second solve in that average)

First time getting all four pairs in inspection? kinda sorta?

D2 B2 L2 B' D2 B' L2 B' D2 U2 F2 R2 D' F' D B U R' D R F

white cross is very easy, just y' z2 in inspection, then L D' R' D2. blue/red and blue/orange pairs are obvious, U R U' R' inserts blue/orange without disturbing blue/red, which I could insert with r' F U' R U M. I also saw that the green/orange edge piece would end up in the back left slot, and traced the corner to the front left with a L U L2 U' L insert. (recreating the solve now it turns out I didn't even trace it correctly but I traced it so incorrectly it actually ended up in that spot anyway. Neat.) Anyway turns out that after the first two pairs, green/red, the only pair I didn't plan for, ended up as a three mover after the first two pairs... that you insert with L U L'. Which I was doing anyway for green/orange.

Anyway I finished F2L sub 6 with a lot of lock-ups (my cube is still super tight because that's the only way I can control it until I bother to buy some new lube) and with a lot of insecurities about my planned solution, got super excited, and messed up the OLL algorithm and ended up with a 16. (I average mid 13.)

First sub-11 avg of 12 and first sub-12 avg of 100, as well as a pb avg of 50! First pbs for anything in 3x3 since 2020, I've only been cubing on-and-off since then and haven't really worked that hard to de-rust.

Like the third time I've beaten my ao12 PB in the past week. Not quite sub 12 but I'm still really happy with it. The 12.23 should have been a mid 11 but I failed at stopping the timer :/
