I did almost 300 2x2 solves yesterday (285), and out of those solves, I got 38 sub-2 solves - 34 sub-2 and 4 sub-1. I'm going to drill some 3x3 today, stop 2x2 for a while (even though I still didn't get that four mover).

What's CP skip again... I forgot
CP = corner permutation
CP Skip = CP already solved
CP Solved (w/ a 1x2 block) = 2 gen solve

I know I said that I was going to stop 2x2 for a while (at least a day), but I couldn't help myself. ;-;

I did U2 at the start because I could see that it would give me a bar on the back and it might skip OLL, but it also skipped PLL too.

I've been actively cubing for over four years and only now do I realize that the color scheme of the cube in the WCA logo is wrong.

The solution on white is the exact same solution on orange, but I hate U2 moves so I swtiched to orange.

Impressive singles for your average, holy crap! I average like low 11 on 3x3 and I've only gotten 5 sub 7s in around 5000-6000 solves.
Any advice on getting lucky on 2x2 btw

Having more ways to get lucky, which means learning a lot of algs.
