yeaterday marked the end of my 15 day streak where i get at least 1 sub-10 per day (despite having multiple low 10s). So I will try to break that streak by getting a sub-10 a day for 16 or more days starting here

I solved the 4x4 Cane Ball via 2x2 reduction! This is 4x4 shape mod with 8 colors; each color is composed of 7 pieces that once solved make up a "2x2 corner" of a 4x4. I'm not sure what the color scheme of this puzzle is but it doesn't matter, the challenge and solve process is really using commutators to solve the 4x4 into a 2x2 reduced state.

This is the intuitive solve I'm most proud of because I really solidified my knowledge of commutators for centers, edges, and corners on big cubes. So pumped! It was a really interesting solve because none of the colors match when you're solving each center & edge pair. I'm quite elated right now!

Accomplished completing the second layer of the 3x3.....new cuber here! See progress below! Would be great to visit any of your video's so I can get tips from the experienced here on this board.

Got a new pr just a few minutes ago. 25.64 seconds on 3x3. Still looking for first sub 32 average. my friend got a new pr for himself, something around 36 about 2 months after I taught him. He's looking for sub 30, I'm looking for sub 25. Good luck to both of us.
Edit: that was fast. Just got 24.95! Finally.
