so i didn't do much cubing this month
and thats okay

April's 3x3/OH goals are going to be the same:

3x3: Do Papa's drill at least 25 times a day (125/week, 500/month).
Do at least 2k solves (500/week, variable daily. 50 at least, 200 if feeling good)

560 solves, 25 drills
averaging very low 11 though, so thats nice.
10.8 best ao100 losing the race to sub10 ao100 against @Yoruba


OH: yk do solves ig idrc too much
cause i'm still fast but i want to be undeniably sub15 again
1k/month sounds good - 50/day and 250/week

140 solves
not unequivocally sub 15 still
but also since I'm moving up in the ladder, I've got to get into low 14 shape if I want to beat everyone


Megaminx:
I quit megaminx for ZBLL, but now that I've finished ZBLL, I need to get back into mega. (400 solves, 100/week, 20/day)
Also relearn some of my PLLs if I can get around to it

350 solves
got down to sub 58 or so
switched to black pieces and tanked. it took about 2-3 days and 60 solves to get back to a 58ish average. I had a session at low 56, but now I'm back up to a 59.6 average so that hurts. but the dayan is good so yeh

kilo:
135 solves and a 28ish average
I've used a pretty fixed order approach to solving S2L, but I'm getting more comfortable dealing with solving out of order. I don't really


Videos:
Recon video x3 recons are done for one of them, but not scripted analyzed or published
Unboxing (hopefully this week) wrong one lmao but got one in so
Sub 15 ao50/25 OH no solves rip
Sub 11 ao50/25 3x3 no solves rip
Minesweeper I just have a trackpad and it looks bad
Typing handcam don't have a good external camera rn :/
wow loosing momentum more and more with the monthly goals.
idk life is happening yeah. I'm going back to uni soon and I've only got so many years of collegiate athletics before I graduate so I want to be able to perform my best. Running and getting back in shape is taking a lot of time so I didn't get to do as much sessioning last month and going forward but it's alright

May goals:

3x3:
1k solves
do actual first pair practice in a session (I can do it sometimes when im solving casually on the bus and whatnot)
sub 10.5 ao100 plz (pb is 10.6, last month had a 10.8)

OH:
1k solves
be fast

zbll:
drill sunes

Mega:
400 solves

Now that I've switched from CFOP to ZZ, I now have new goals for probably the rest of the year.
-Reduce my EOCross moves to 8-9 moves
-Average sub-15 on ZZ
-Average ZZ with similar or better times than my CFOP (I'm currently faster with CFOP)
-Learn a good chunk of ZBLL
Update on this:

-Reduce my EOCross moves to 8-9 moves
Not quite there yet. I currently average ~11 moves.

-Average sub-15 on ZZ
Shockingly reached this feat after around a month or two.

-Average ZZ with similar or better times than my CFOP (I'm currently faster with CFOP)
I kinda reached this since practicing ZZ made me worse at CFOP lol. But are my ZZ times similar/better than my former CFOP times? Not exactly, but the gap is only ~0.5 seconds apart.

-Learn a good chunk of ZBLL
Currently only know around 32 cases, so that's progress. My focus isn't all on ZBLL, so this won't be fulfilled until way later.

New & Current Goals:
-Average sub-12 on ZZ
-Average 8-9 moves on EOCross (do EOCross exercises daily)
-Quit bad habits (unnecessary U moves and x x' moves)
-Refine F2L (learn keyhole, multislotting, better algs, etc.)
-Learn 2 sided PLL recog
-Learn more 2GLL cases (maybe even full 2GLL minus S/AS)
-Quit using some COLL cases

From what I remember I didn't solve much and then got addicted to minesweeper. oh well, that was really fun while it lasted. Haven't spedrun minesweeper in a bit and I probably won't pick it up until I need to procrastinate on my homework once school starts.


ZMS is doing a 10k solves in August challenge and I've got a good start to that already (~2k so far). Therefore:

3x3:
Complete the challenge
Sub 9.50 ao1k I don't think is unreasonable.
Sub 6 single
wrm2021???

OH:
sub14 ao100

other things:
run: cada dia
spanish: por lo menos treinta horas por favor quiero dominarlo tanto y tendre clases en septiembre

wrm2021???

only hit 6009 solves. Some serious personal things came up about halfway through the month and then I moved back into the dorms an uni so I just ran out of time. I was on pace until things happened though
Last ao1k was 10.14, but I was my current session of 700 was at 9.97 when the challenge ended. I'll finish that average up this week and see where it puts me
I got at least 3-4 6s, but no sub6. Probably somewhere around like 100-150 7s though
I haven't bought a new cube yet but I'm leaning towards it. perhaps a backup rs2020 as well


OH:
sub14 ao100

I only did like 200 solves
14.06 ao50 and like 14.48 ao100
but now that august is over I can focus on that more


other things:
run: cada dia
spanish: por lo menos treinta horas por favor quiero dominarlo tanto y tendre clases en septiembre

casi sino por los ultimos semanas cuando habia los cosas personales :/
yo conte las horas y tenia cuarenta horas y diez minutos :) (lo mas fue escuchar cuando lave los platos o comer o resolver, pero tambien habia un poquito de estudiar y hablar)
Overall a solid month, or at least solid half month. Not gonna let it bog me down

Goals for September:

OH:
4k solves
sub 14 ao1k
sub 13.3 ao100 (idk. be fast)
record and recon sub14 ao50

3x3:
500ish solves or whatever who cares anymore
sub10 ao1k
record and recon sub10 ao50

School:
oh boy

Track:
oh boy!
