Me too:
Just the Finnish Championship left this year. More goals for me.

2x2: sub-4.5 average, sub-3.5 single (low priority)
3x3: sub-15 average, sub-13 single
4x4: sub-1 average, sub-50 single
5x5: sub-2:10 average, sub-2 single
6x6: get a mean
7x7: get a mean (then I'll be a silver member)
3BLD: sub-50 single, (sub-1 mean), 2nd place
FMC: sub-30 mean, 2nd place (1st place possible if I get really lucky)
OH: sub-30 average
WF: sub-1:15 mean, 2nd place
Mega: sub-2:10 average, sub-2 single
Pyra: sub-3.5/sub-4 average, comp pb single, 2nd place, hmm... how about 1st place:rolleyes:
Clock: sub-9 average, sub-8 single, 2nd place
Skewb: really happy with my current comp pbs, but let's say sub-7 average
Square-1: sub-22 average, sub-20 single, maybe
4BLD: sub-5 single, 2nd place
5BLD: succeed, sub-20, 2nd place (1st place, only success was mine)
MBLD: NR!!, 1st place
Hmm, it looks bad like that, but I somehow knew most of these were too tough goals. Currently I'm feeling I fulfilled all of my important goals, mainly the multi-blind nr and nr2 pyra average.

Awesome! Next up drilling my 3bld comms (finish learning full corner 3-style), transferring them also to multi and pushing my limits again. I think first I'll go on to 25 cubes, that should take a while.

Still waiting for that 7x7 average, maybe I'll find a comp with an easy cutoff (or then I should just practice a bit).

It would probably be much better to switch to an advanced method (Roux, CFOP, ZZ, etc.) before that, maybe at like sub-50ish

Anyway I just want to get really comfortable with the T ZBLL set as soon as possible
I've started learning Roux-- ZZ looks really cool but EO is super hard, and CFOP has waaay too many algorithms

Hey I'm actually going to a comp again so...
Severna Park goals

3x3: definitely sub-13 average, maybe sub-12 if I manage to figure out how to keep my lookahead from disappearing like it usually does...
4x4: sub-48 average, maybe sub-45 if I don't screw up
2x2: lol it's been two years since I went to a comp with 2x2 and I don't think I've gotten any faster. Maybe sub-5 average and I can hang up my 2x2 hat happily
pyra: same as 2x2 honestly. Low-9, high-8 average maybe?
SQ1: I don't even think I still know how to solve it...

EDIT: Sweeet
I actually got the sub-12 3x3 average! 11.88 in the semis put me in 17th, just outside of finals. I'll get that next time I guess.
45.61 4x4 average was also pretty sweet.
2x2 prediction was pretty spot-on, 5.84 average means exactly what I said...
I forgot my pyra so just judged during that section.
SQ1... probably luckiest average ever. I know 5 algs total for cubeshape, CO, EO, CP, and EP combined. The soft cut was 0:40, I average about 48ish so I knew I would need a lucky solve to make it. Got the lucky solve with a 30.03, then got a 33 right after. Followed up with a 54, 40, and 43. 1/5 parities in the whole average.

Overall, definitely the best I've felt leaving a comp before. Really happy about the 3x3 and 4x4 averages, as I feel they now display where I actually am in terms of skill level. SQ1 was just a bonus lol

Goals for Lions Cubing 2018

Event: Average/Single, Extra, Bonus

3x3: Sub 12/10, Top 15 and no sup-14, Sub 11.5 average
5x5: Sub 1:50/1:45, no sup-2:00, Sub 1:45/1:40
7x7: Sub 5:30/5:15, don't get last, Sub 5:20/5:00
3BLD: Sub 4:00/3:00, don't get last, Sub 3:30/2:30
OH: Sub 17/14, Podium? and beat James, Sub 16.5/13.5

Practice these events enough to be able to have a chance at completing these goals. I've got two weeks.

Warm, dry hands that don't lock up excessively.
Don't do anything stupid with ZBLLs (I've forced H-perms in OH twice, realizing it halfway through the alg both times).
Get the organizer to add a second round of OH
Bring my friend to his first competition.
Have fun, which I am actually bad at doing. I'm too competitive when competing at my competitions.

Singapore Cube Championship 2018

222: sub-6 average
333: sub-16 average
444: meet the cutoff (currently 1:00 0:55), sub-53 average
555: meet the cutoff (currently 1:40 1:35 (rip))
777: sub-4:40 mean
OH: meet the cutoff (currently 0:30 0:25 (also rip))
FMC: don't DNF the first solve like I did last year sub-30 single, podium
3bld: get a success (aiming high, I know)
Megaminx: sub-1:40 average
Skewb: sub-10 average

bonus goals (aka lol this isn't going to happen)

222: sub-5 average
333: sub-10 single, sub-14 average, make it to the second round
444: sub-45 single, sub-50 average
OH: sub-20 single
FMC: get/tie the NR for single or mean (25 and 29.00 28.67 as of now)

FMC competition looks tough(er) this year, especially since I haven't practised/improved much in the last two years. If I can perform as well as how I do at home (averaging 31-ish), podium is likely (50%?) but definitely not guaranteed. Winning or getting NRs is essentially impossible with how good guysensei1 has gotten…
