I'm Keenan, and while I may not be new here on speedsolving.com, I don't have an intro yet.
Any way, In competition I've done 5 events: 2x2, 3x3, 4x4, Pyraminx, and Skewb, and have averages in every one of these except 4x4 (it was a Bo2/Ao5 and I had 2 attempts to get sub-1:30-- I'm not THAT fast!) I started cubing on March 16, 2017 when I solved the Rubik's cube with some last layer algs I had just memorized in the last half hour and solved it in 15 minutes (it was untimed, but it took me from 7:30 PM to 7:45 PM). From there I started getting into cubing, and I've loved it ever since. I've done about 1900-2000 solves on many different events, and 27 in competition. I'm learning 4BLD and 5BLD, and don't really get into BLD that often. I have unofficial results in 3x3, 2x2, 4x4, 5x5, 6x6, Pyraminx, Skewb, Megaminx, Clock, Square-1, OH, 3x3 Feet, FMC, 3BLD, and MBLD. Here are my mains: 3-GAN X with Numerical IPG (56 mm, yellow nuts at 0.6, strong magnets)
2-QiYi QiDi S (tension's messed up)
4-Cubing Classroom MF4C 4x4
5-ShengShou 5x5
6-YJ YuShi 6x6
7-None
Py-ShengShou Aurora Pyraminx
Sk-MoYu Skewb
Me-YuXin Little Magic Megaminx
Cl-AoLong Clock
Sq-YJ YuLong Square-1
Since I'm running out if space, I will only say my PBs for 3x3, 4x4, OH, and FMC
3x3 PB: 14.18
Ao5 PB (3x3): 20.98
4x4 PB: 1:59.77
Ao5 PB (4x4): 2:14.59
OH PB: 35.33
Ao5 PB (OH): 72.39
FMC PB: 35 moves
Mo3 PB (FMC): 47.67
Also my cube collection has 9 3x3s, 3 2x2s, 3 4x4s, 2 big cubes, 5 official twisty puzzles, 2 unofficial twisty puzzles, and 9 memorabilia items, making 24, or 33 if you count memorabilia (mugs, games, socks, etc.)
One wish that I have is to meet all the world's top speedsolvers (Feliks Zemdegs, Max Park, Kevin Hays, Patrick Ponce, etc.) and get them to autograph one of my cubes, so there's one name on each square.
Another wish that I have is that someone would break the skewb WR single and get sub-1 second, but that's just me.

Yeah, I'm saving up for the YuXin Hays 7M. It's going to take a while mowing the lawn though... :)
Btw, when are you going to post of the "Reasons You've Been Cubing too Long" thread? You came up with some great reasons.
That thread kind of died a while ago, it was originally called 1000 reasons you've been cubing too long, then 2000 and then infinity.
I remember when people were trying to reach 3000 and then I discovered that we had reached it 3 months before.

Yeah, it kinda did die...
I got a 7x7 tho
It's a QiYi QiXing but I got a better 5x5, 6x6, and skewb and some Gan lube (10cc) so I think that's good for a starter 7x7 right?
