Short term goals
Goals:
Sub 15 3x3
Sub 30 OH
Finish off L ZBLL and review T and U at least twice(and use it actively in solves)
Also finish off Mehta algs and H, Pi, S and AS 2GLL(for OH)
Sub 3 2x2 and finish off full CLL
As of Nov 11 2021, I can say that I'm halfway through this.
I'm close to sub 17 2H and average around 34 OH
as for ZBLL.... midterms are going on and I'll finish off TUL after that

Mine is

3x3 short term: 20, 18, 16, 14
3x3 long term: 10, 8

2x2 short: 4
2x2 long: 2

can anyone give me a suggestion, I know how to solve 4x4, but should I work on getting it faster? I am currently 2.30mins on 4x4

Pyraminx: 5

Ps: the cube I spend most time practising is 1x1, it’s just fun

Just outside of cle elum grinding 3x3
My goals are to get
  • Sub 10 on 3x3
  • sub 30 on OH and later low 20's
  • Sub 1:30 5x5 and then sub 1 minute thinking of using hoya
  • Do something with 4x4 even if it is to practice until I get a 5x5
  • Shoot a clock and skewb
  • At least try 6x6 and 7x7
  • Not give up on bld
  • Try mega
  • Get sub 5 on 2x2 and prya
  • Overall I want to be an allrounder with some emphasis on about 4 events.

3x3: I'm a long way off(mid-low 16 avg)
OH: I have to drop another 3 seconds and nah it's not happening in a week
2x2: I'm done with CLL but I average low 3
ZBLL: I finished L 2 weeks ago yay!!(as for drilling, I'm halfway through T)
Mehta algs: done with EOLE and CDRLL, have a few JTLEs and that monster called full DCAL.
2GLL: I haven't touched it yet and I have other priorities

I'm going to a comp in less than a week

Windy City New Year 2022 Goals:

3x3: Finals, sub 8 single? sub 10 average
3x3 OH: Top 5, sub 12 single, sub 13.3 average. Top WR200 would be cool
5x5: sub 1:50

FTO: make cutoff
3x3 Oven mitt: sub25?
well, uh

3x3: 10.4 r1, 10.7 r2
only an 8.8 single in r1. I was the only person in finals to not get a sub10 single

oh: 12.5 sub12 fail - oh well, im still happy with 12.5
DNF - didn't start the timer and missed a low/sub 10
15.1 - had a meh locky RUD diag sune
12.0 - hell yeah
20 - messed up eoline. counting 20 gave me a 16.19 average. technically pb by 0.03, but its 3 seconds slower than my global

5x5 - almost sub 1:40 hell yeah i didn't even practice this

FTO - didn't learn bensico so i just stuck with cage. got a 4:30 and then DNFed second solve bc i messed up edges

Oven mitts - got flamed bc i didn't bring the right type of oven mitts despite there being no regulations whatsoever about what constitutes an oven mitt. i borrowed some and got a 56 average.


a fun comp. it was cool meeting some new ppl. the fatigue of 4am solving was not something i had proper prepared myself for.

In a computer simulation, just like you

Sounds like a poor organizer. I'll be your lawyer and sue for you no problem.

EDIT: wow, people like this idea, lol.

2/3s of Sune ZB(should take only about 2 days)
mid 15 global

2x2(low 3 global):

OH(low 30s global, inconsistent):
finally learn some 2GLL apart from TUL

clean up my turning

time limit: with the time I have now, ummm... last week of May??
