In a computer simulation, just like you
So I was on a hike with my family today, and right before we started, I was waiting for everyone to get sprayed with bug spray. And so I was just standing there, water bottle in my left-hand GoPro strapped on my head when suddenly, My dad swats at something with a hat. I figured it was a mosquito or something. I heard my dad say "Where did it go??", and I was kinda like "WHAT THE FRICK IS IT THAT HE NEEDS TO KNOW WHERE IT WENT?!?" to myself. Then, I felt something on my left arm. I looked down, and it was a wasp the size of a freaking monarch butterfly. I obviously jumped when I saw it and tried to half brush half swat it away while kind of freaking out. It stung me (kind of, the stinger was only around 1/4 of the way in, the swelling went down in around half an hour), and then FLEW AWAY.

Moral of the story: If you're going to fricking sting someone, at least say sorry when you're done.
I'm looking at you doctors.

Wasp that big sounds like a hornet to me...
They have no mercy

Time to practice FMC. I finally understand NISS. I also know how to do EO, fairly good block building (If I do say so myself), and 6 different methods (CFOP, Roux, ZZ-A, ZZ-CT, Mehta, and Petrus. I could be missing one). I very badly want to be sub-40 (You might know my PB is 34 (I think) but a little secret, that was a speed solve but I counted it as FMC because of low move-count lol). I actually average like 45-50. I printed off a bunch of FMC scrambles from Tnoodle, and I do a bunch of FMC a day now.
What do you guys think is a good step after I get comfortable with NISS (In however many solves.)? DR?

FMC
Scramble:
R' U' F L' D2 B2 U' B2 D' F2 D' U2 R' D' L F L F L D2 R F R' U' F
U L2 D' R' B R D' R2 B U B2 // big 'ol block
U2 L F' L B2 L' F L B2 U' L2 U2 L2 B' U' F B U F' L' U' L2 //rest of solve that I can't figure out which steps start where (NISS) but I did EO and Dominoe Redux in there at some point.
33 OBTM

Super happy with this. 33 is super good for me. My first real attempt after going through the FMC bible.
