27/33 multiblind in 1:00:54.14[40:03.71]. Fastest memo so far on 33 cubes.

The fail: literally every DNF was a trivial execution mistake.
-forgot to fix parity
-missed a finger flick on a U2'
-missed the U' in the alg [r U r', S']
-forgot to undo the setup move in [R : [r U' r', E]]
-did a U' at the end of the alg [R : [U' M2 U, R]] because it's a stupid M2 setup reflex
-forgot to undo the setup move in [z' D' : [R' D' R, U]]

First 27 cube multi: 1hr 8min (40min memo) with pauses because I started to forgetting stuff, dnf a number of cubes

2nd 27 cube multi (about 1hr 40min later): 26/27 in 1hr 1min 33.06s (41min memo) (really fast execution speed for me)

Weird stuff

Second attempt at 6BLD: 33:05.26[20:25.42] DNFed by 26 obliques.

Sucks wasting this much time...but I'm pretty sure that when I get a success it'll be sub-30 minutes at the most, since my second attempt was 12 minutes faster than my first :p

Pretty sure my obliques were basically scrambled most likely because I did a left oblique comm when I was supposed to do a right oblique comm. Obliques really mess with my spatial reasoning skills...

I decided to try 6BLD too and got DNF 22:12.99[11:18.36]
It was off by 3 outer x-centers. I memorize them last with sentences before corners, so it should be the easiest thing after corners. That's why I am very angry, everything hard solved, but ez x-centers are not.

I execute corners first but I had parity, and when I did the last target at the end I did C instead of P because my previous attempt had C as the last target (but I popped the cube a few comms in...)
:(

6BLD really sucks.............I want a success so bad lol this is frustrating.

29:13.31[16:21.85] DNFed by 2 outer x-centers. The first time I get obliques completely right, and the first time I didn't get outer x-centers completely right lol. I traced to the correct outer x-center in memo but I memo'd the wrong letter -_-

I am sad... I did super ultra safe MBLD 24 cubes attempt, and got 22/24 56:36.59[37:16.40]
Why am I sad?
DNFs:
1.Forgot to execute corners(I remembered them, but forgot to execute). And I realised that 3 seconds after I put that cube on the table. I picked the cube and executed them, but in wrong orientation(because I picked cube wrongly).
2.Did parity alg, but that cube hadn't parity. lmao.
I am crying. I almost NEVER have execution mistakes. And now I had two absolutely stupid errors.
I need more cubes. 24 is all that I have, and I do them sub-hour completely safely, MBLD gets boring for me :(.
