I have joined the dark side and I will be studying the dark arts to master the ability to solve the 3x3x3 blindfolded. I just succesfully did step 1.

Step 1. Write down all the letters to solve all the corners and then read all the letters back and solve the corners. All sighted.

I already feel pretty accomplished with that because this alone took me 5 hours.
This time I did the letters and such without looking at the cube. Success. Maybe that's step 2? :)

Just did a MBLD attempt, the total result was pretty disappointing (felt like it could have been PB before taking my blindfold off), but the memo was suuuuper good for me and really consistent, I'm really proud of how well I focused throughout this. So I'm gonna document the splits here:

memo+review 1-8: 2:44
memo+review 9-16: 2:41
review 1-16: 2:06
memo+review 17-24: 2:55
memo+review 25-32: 2:53
review 17-32: 2:11 (15:30 for 1-32 pass :))
review 1-32: 4:48 (20:18 1-32 4pass!! PB by like a minute i think)
memo+review 33-40: 2:58
memo+review 41-48: 2:50
review 33-48: 2:12
memo+review 49-64: 6:20
memo 65: 0:14

Proud of pretty much every split here

The mo6 for all the 8 pack memo+reviews was 2:50 (I think this is my first time ever doing all of the 8 pack memo+reviews sub-3:00), and I averaged 8.33 seconds/cube for each individual review in the bulk reviews (i.e. 1-16, 17-32, 1-32, 33-48)

And then a 14 second 3bld memo to boot! It's obvious pretty insignificant but I usually do like 20 seconds for 3bld, so I'm happy about that

Okay first my accomplishment
I solved a 2x2 successfully exactly one week ago on Wednesday, September the 18th around 7 PM in 5:17.30
with this scramble D2 B' U2 F L2 U2 F R2 D2 R2 D2 B2 R' D2 R B' F L' F L
and this memo M KN UD K.

Now, I need your help
I have a question: How in the world do you guys make up words for letter pairs like EO or KQ
I just started practicing again today, but now only edges. How I remember EO: "omgekeerde oe" (it's Dutch, I speak and think in Dutch, but that is beside the point. It's a terrible way to remember it btw.)
How in the world do you guys remember letter pairs that can't possibly form a normal word/name? Please help? I wanna have my first official 3BLD solve too.
