By the end of the year (2 normal comps, 1 fmc comp):

3BLD NR single, preferably sub-30
If I'll try to rush a lot, I don't probably expect a mean, but that'd always be better (I already got the mean NR after all)

5BLD NR (9:48) or at least a sub 11 success

MBLD 20 points NR officially and get at least 28 cubes sub-hour

Main goal: #1 in Finnish kinchranks, I'm 3 points behind Reto, 5bld should easily get me 2-2.5 points and then then I don't need a lot more. I could improve at least my clock, oh and squan avgs without a lot of effort and my 6x6 and 7x7 times are complete trash so a bit of grind and I could improve quickly.

addition: Continue my pb streak, that means I should get a good fmc result at the fmc comp.

I don't think I actually posted goals here, but the Big Cheese 2019 just finished, and it went really well.
The goals that I would have posted:

Event: single/average, other, bonus

3x3: 9.57/11.25, top 10, sub 11 average

Megaminx: 55/<60, podium

Feet: 40/44, win, top 100 results


and my results were pretty good!

3x3: 8.52/11.15, 7th, no

Megaminx: 52/58, 3rd

Feet: 35.4/44.66, won, 97th for both

And I got 7th place for KinchCheeseRanks, so I got a large block of mild cheddar cheese!
Overall a fantastic competition.

FMC 2019/Blind N' Feet 2019

FMC: sub 32, 36.33. A lucky sub 30 and a sub 35 average mean would be great.

3BLD: 2:30 single + finals. sub 2 single maybe? sub 3 mean?

4BLD: sub 15m success. Honestly, even if it's like 25m, I'll still be happy.

MBLD: 3/3 sub 20m or 5+ points to qualify for big competitions. I don't know how much I'll be practicing multi though. but 3/3 should be easy

Feet: sub stanley. 31.2 single, 37.5 average

FMC 2019/Blind N' Feet 2019

FMC: sub 32, 36.33. A lucky sub 30 and a sub 35 average mean would be great.

3BLD: 2:30 single + finals. sub 2 single maybe? sub 3 mean?

4BLD: sub 15m success. Honestly, even if it's like 25m, I'll still be happy.

MBLD: 3/3 sub 20m or 5+ points to qualify for big competitions. I don't know how much I'll be practicing multi though. but 3/3 should be easy

Feet: sub stanley. 31.2 single, 37.5 average
So, clearly, I didn't put enough work into achieving any of these goals. Still, the comp was fun and my results were a solid okay.

FMC: 36, 33, 36 = 35
My cubecomps says it was a 34 but I always do an x2 rotation because I suck. I think that got counted, or I just suck and I actually got a 35.33.
I found two 33s, and one of them was a linear petrus-y solve, the other was a 24 to 3c but I don't practice FMC so I wasn't able to find any insertions that cancelled anything. The other two solves were just ZZ solves that cancelled into 2GLL.

3BLD: 3xDNF(3:40) kinda sad because I mis turned the BD edge target and that was my only mistake. The other two solves were pretty far from solved. I'm content with the times though. Staying sub 4 is all I ask for, at least given how little practice I do.

Multi: 0/2 eh idc

4BLD: DNF (37)
This was painful because I executed perfectly. Only, there were a lot of cycle breaks in the wings and I missed a separate 5 cycle of wings. I knew my wing memo wasn't long enough but I couldn't figure out where the cycle was.

Feet: 45, 42, 42, 45, 38. A solid okay. Average is mid 43 which is PB but it's not great, though I haven't been practicing enough to warrant anything faster than that. Also, it was hardwood and everyone else failed miserably. On my first solve, I took at least 5 seconds to finish the last two turns of a G perm :(.

I didn't do 5BLD but Cale got a 4:08 3:50 DNF(3:17) rip 5BLD mean WR.

And there was a tank. I think we got the best FMC staff picture out of the entire planet. I'm not sure since I haven't seen any others, but ours would be pretty hard to beat.

my house, cubing.
At 11:57 on the 31st of December 2019, I want to be consistently averaging sub 3 minutes in 3BLD. If not, another year will have passed, and I have less time to do stuff other than that goal.
