Deadline: valentines day (for no particular reason, I just wanted a date in mid February.)

2x2: sub8
3x3: do an ao100 at least 6 times a week until I am at a sub25 ga.
4x4: sub 1:40
5x5: sub3
Pyra: learn to solve it on my own, then learn a better method. (So ambitious)

My reasoning with 3x3 is that I just do so many untimed solves and so few timed solves that I'm not practicing the basics as much as I'm learning new things. I always feel super rushed during solves so I want to just get really used to timed solves and just practice what I already know instead of trying to always learn new stuff. Then I'll go back to untimed solves. The other goals are just stuff I'd like to do.

Sub-8.65 skewb mean of 250 by 21 February 2015.
Sub-8.65 skewb official average on 21 February 2015.

8.65 is the current AfR, and 21 February is my next competition. It leaves me 1 month to knock 1 second off my average.

I'm averaging about 1 minute 10 at the moment with single PB of 47 seconds.

I'd like to be averaging sub-40 in 1 month.

2x2x2: actually practise and get sub-8; consider learning something other than Ortega
3x3x3: get colour neutrality down, and solid; get a sub-25 Ao100; learn a good amount of OLLs
3x3x3 OH: actually practise and get sub-50;
4x4x4: generally get better with Yau; work on new method somehow
5x5x5: get one;
3BLD: practise and chase Maskow down;
4BLD: learn it;
MBLD: get a 2/2;
Megaminx: get sub-5 Ao100;

Programming: create a program in Python that can solve 2x2x2 and 3x3x3; create a program that will help me in creating my 4x4x4 method.

Goals before 12 June (Birthday)

Skewb Global Avg - sub-5
3x3 - Sub 18 (Nearly There. It is in sight, but its still a way to go)
2x2 - Get acquainted with Ortega, learn easiest EG-1 and be sub-6 (Reset to 2017?)
4x4 - Actually be bothered to learn parity alg and get times down (sub 4:00? Imma nub at big cubes) EDIT: Nah. Maybe not.
Also, slow turning, colour neutral sub-20 ao12. Easy done :p

Bold is completed. (1/5)

Goals Before February (Nope. April) 2015

sub 20 ga on 3x3 (So near...)
sub 8 ga on Skewb (Not near. Might have something to do with not practicing.)
sub 7 on 2x2 ( /\/\/\/\/\/\ Read above reason )
Finish off colour neutral
Get a 12 second lucky single :)P I don't think so xD EDIT: New PB. 12.55 My god. GA is 18.)
get a 16 second non-lucky single (Got 15.56, stackmatted)

Bold is completed (4/6) Need to practice something else other than 3x3... I am obsessed with 3x3. I love 2x2, like Skewb, but Mega is solve for fun. I don't like big cubes :(
