Your window, stalking you
I know 15 plls (-G&N) and ~10 olls

Average solve breakdown:

Cross done in 3-4 seconds
F2L done in ~14
OLL by ~18
PLL by ~21

csTimer stats:

Any tips are helpful. If necessary, I will send an ao5 video.

learn all the PLLs. cross at 3-4 seconds must be improved by planning out the cross in inspection.
F2L is 10 seconds which is ok but can be improved as well. OLL is 4 seconds which should be faster even with 2 look with practice. PLL is 3 seconds which can be improved to 2 if you learn all the PLLs

And wont my Bad habbits get more and more sticked in my mind?

I recommend Felik's Cubing Practice Tips

Grinding solves and mindless practice won't give you great progress, you also need to do a bunch of untimed solves to come up with smart solutions and new tips and tricks to solve different cases.

Then how come I got sub-9 by just grinding solves for 11 months ?(98% grinding solves, 1% deliberate practice, 1% watching videos)
Grinding solves is a very important part of your practice

Practice. Watch example solves, improve your F2L, do slow solves.

And buy a new cube lmao

Um...... I'm sorry. Did you say coconut oil.
just why

I would watch lots of example solves.
Or grind like I am right now during an English test. Either one.
jk don't I am more disappointed in myself than my parents are for my choice of hobby

Hi All,

I'm new to cubing, pb is 58 seconds on 3x3.

I know all edge-only algorithms for pll, and I solve cross on bottom.

I have a GAN 356M, and I use CFOP.

Any suggestions on what to learn next?

Thanks,

Grimet
Learn efficient ways to do your F2L by watching walkthrough solves, or looking at algs for some of the more difficult cases. Learn good fingertricks, and it wouldn't be a bad idea to start learning color neutralality while it's easier.
