Ok, I'm gonna make a list right here, (So I remember it and can go back to it and share it with you people too). Let's go

2x2

  • I broke my 2x2 lol
  • I want to learn CLL though when I get my new one.

3x3 (Edit: Not learning oll yet, but doing slow solve instead)

  • As everyone knows, I'll be learning full oll (maybe not dot cases since I can use sledgehammer to prevent it).
  • I'll be doing slow solves, on day 4 and 5 each week. I would like to take a break from learning algs for 3-4 days.

4x4

  • I'll mainly be practising and solving it every day so I can get used to yau.
  • So far, I got used to doing the 4 last centers.
  • I'll be mainly be practising 3-2-3 edges.

3BLD

  • I might do it? idk , I'll just practise doing 2x2 blind, since it's only corners.
  • It will help me though when learning 3x3 bld.

You're going to want to learn the dot cases. People make them seem worse than they really are--but in reality they aren't any harder to learn or slower to execute than other OLL's if you use the right algs. And you won't be able to always use the sledge technique because sometimes you're going to get split pair (in which it's best to just insert with R U R', it's not worth using a special alg to avoid dot case) or you might use a different technique altogether to finish off F2L which might also lead to a dot case. (for example: mutlislotting, pseudoslotting, FRUF, etc. you might not use these techniques now but you probably will eventually)

ah, I forgot about that. I'll probably learn it, it's probably because I'm lazy to learn dot cases like how I did with g perms. but these tips will definitely help me during the long term run

Guys I kinda got it!! I had all the corners in the right place :D This is actually the first time I actually succeed to solve the corners. I didn't do it blindfolded, but I did write down the letter pairs. And I actually didn't give up when I had to do a new cycle. I'm really proud of myself even though it's only the corners. I think I'm hooked with 3BLD, so I'm gonna do it alongside with learning olls and 4x4.

you are improvingfast. You seem kinda inconsistent though.

For the past two days I did 3BLD but only corners. I timed myself and did it blindfolded only solving corners! And I got it! The string of letters were very easy to memo. Here's the reconstruction:

Scramble: R2 D F2 D' F2 R2 F2 R2 D R2 D' B D F2 R2 D' R2 B'
Time: 1:24:39

Corners

U: D (corner alg) Undo: D'
S: D F' (corner alg) Undo: F D'
F: F' D (corner alg) Undo: D' F
N: R' F (corner alg) Undo: F' R
J: R' (corner alg) Undo: R
O: R2' F (corner alg) Undo: F' R2

US:
As in the initials of United States
FN: As in Fan
JO: The last name of a celeb in the group I liked (cough cough iz*one)

I decided to put off me learning full oll. I'm actually ok with me being in the sub 20 barrier. My times are quite inconsistent though, (ty to @DNF_Cuber for telling me cus I realized how inconsistent they were) so I'm just gonna do slow solves for now. I'll probably learn next month or later.
try chill solves instead, brody popularized this and many people (including me) find it more effective than slow solves
