Ok, so here's a basic recap (with a couple of "interesting" details

3x3: Nothing really special, 12.80 and 13.66 averages.
4x4: Two mid-49 averages, but sub 40 single in finals so that's cool.
5x5: My first round average was 1:35.64. My PB single before I left this morning was 1:35.94. Absolutely insane. Didn't even expect to make cutoff lol. Finals was more normal though, 1:48 average.
Clock: 15.81 average, so not bad. Except they added a second round during the competition. So I got a second chance, and I DNF'ed out of an 11.39 average. Ended up being 12.25 (Christmas moment), so not terrible, but I'm still a bit pissed.
Skewb: Threw harder than a discus thrower. 7.58 average. At least I got a sub 5 single.
Square-1: First round I got a 22.86 average, not great but still PR by 5 seconds, so can't be too mad. Finals I got 22.97, and a PR single of 18.33+. Can't escape the penalties smh.

Also funny story from clock finals: On my first solve, I was kinda shaky on my last 2 or so moves, so when I dropped the clock it landed in a way that it rolled and it stopped rolling on the very edge of the table. Any more and it would've just fallen off the table lmao. But it doesn't end there. @Homeschool Cubing was sitting next to me, and on one of his solves the judge wasn't very careful with lifting the cover, and it ended up just f---ing flying into the spectator area. Table was just cursed tbh.
