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?

Where did you learn EO? I want to learn it but I can't find many tutorials or pdfs...
