Whenever @Sombi McJunior gets a PB average on 3x3, I get one an hour later. These past weeks of 3x3 have just showed me how fueled by external motivation I am.

Oh, and I got a 2x2 PB single and ao5 after I made my 2x2 fast (Purple GES nuts instead of Clear GES, reÅngstromed it better with more Gravitas and Dignitas without DNM-37. I plan on getting better with timer starts and being more familiar with onelooking with different colors (which I can struggle with doing in a comp with little inspection time)

FTO era is good so far, getting comfortable with L2C and Last Triple. Need to get better at L3T and 2 look TCP since I still use the beginner “two swap” alg for everything with the middle centers

Last solve was good, and this was going to be a good average (WPA 7.58), but I somehow lucked into antisune into a PLL skip and counted my PB3 or PB4. All in all, I really don’t think I will beat this in like at least a week since this is an actual real good average.

I didn’t have a sub 7.3 single before Penn Championships, and now I have a nearly sub 7 average?!

FTO is very good, but I haven’t set it up yet because I haven’t been able to and won’t be able to till at least Wednesday. Overall, I average pretty close to 46-47 seconds, and when I can record my solve, I’ll post one of my solves onto the “official” leaderboards. For now, L3T is my biggest weakness by far, and my good solves are when I get a skip of some kind so I’m watching videos to improve
