Since Christmas is closing in, should I get a new 3x3 or a new puzzle?
Hmm... If you aren't satisfied with your 3x3, maybe you should get another magnetic one. If you're currently doing fine with your 3x3 puzzle, you can get other WCA puzzles such as pyraminx, skewb, megaminx, or a 15 puzzle. They are really fun and amazing!

I'm also currently thinking bout what I should get for Christmas. So many choices!

Very nice F2L flow. Even had some 3 movers, but the LL was sick. Fat sune into PLL skip, no AUF. I think I can reconstruct this...

EDIT: Nope. Can someone reconstruct LSLL for me? I'll reconstruct the rest soon.
I got a solve very like that for my first sub-10 (same last layer and had some 3 movers in F2L)! Congrats.

I couldn’t help but try to reconstruct it so does this look at all familiar…
z2 y2 D’ F’ L’ M2 U2 M2 // Cross
U’ R’ U R // Pair #1

Only cross I could find that gives a (technically) 3 mover at the beginning of F2L. You can remove the y2 rotation and do the cross from a different angle to give the same thing, but then this pair is in the back and not as noticeable.

Today my class had a zoom meeting and the teacher was new so she decided to show what she liked doing the most, then ask us what we liked. So, like any cuber would do, I decided to show off my PB. The teacher was very amazed. She said I might even be able to show off at a school assembly. 🤣 Fun days.
Nice Man! Haha. Your PB is sub 10. No wonder your teacher is amazed. That's still really funny!! 🤣

I would have just done Yusheng Du's WR scramble blindfolded.

So, my rate of progression has slowed down a lot. My average is about 17.25 with 320ish solves. So now, I am tackling OLL. First, I will train some algs I know. I think that will help with my recognition, especially for the lightnings. (Currently I have a very inefficient approach of matching to a certain position then AUF to execute alg)
