My plan for achieving #1 in my state
Gradually learn more OLL's and finish off the G perms
Work on getting consistent sub 1 cross
Improving F2L
Possibly learn color neutrality

In the next month or two I will work on improving my cross.

Just got a sub 15 ao12
I am very happy about this, and I hope to be able to get these solve consistently soon

I have identified some parts of my solves that I can improve upon. First I do too many rotations, especially during F2L, second my F2L is somewhat inefficient and could be easily improved, finally I need to work on my OLL recognition as I spend longer than what I need to identify a case. Another thing is that I often lack the motivation to improve, so I find myself identifying issues, but then leaving it at that, and not working on them.

I am going to try to work on my motivation and ability to actually practice, so for everyday until 2023 I will work on one aspect of my solves that needs improving, then post what I learned that day on here.

Today I think I will take more time to plan out my cross and do some practice solves to find more efficient cross solutions.

Here are 5 scrambles that I will give myself time to figure out a quick cross on
Let me know if there are other things I could improve upon and if there is a better cross solution I didn't see, it will help me out

I just did an average of 25 after practicing better crosses for a little while.
I did slightly better than what I average normally, and hopefully with more practice I can get this to be comfortably sub 15
