ok, since it seems like everyone else is doing this, I'm going to change this into just a personal progress thread. Lately I've been working on finishing up CN with blue cross, my final cross color, as well as mega, squan, and just the centers on 7x7, since that's what needs the most work

currently averaging around 9.7
Goal: Sub 9.2
Currently averaging around 1:07
Goal: Sub 55 by the end of the summer
Currently averaging around 18
Goal: Sub 13 by the end of the summer
Currently averaging 1:45-1:50 on just the centers
Goal: Sub 1:35 in the next 2 weeks

alright, I'm starting my square-1 CSP grind TODAY! I plan to learn all the CSP's by the end of the summer. I already know 11/90. The hardest part in my opinion is tracing in under 15 seconds and remembering where to trace from. The "algs" aren't so bad because you just need to know what cubeshape to reduce it into and whether to solve it from the front or back.
Also, everything for day 1 is out.

ok, I can't believe I'm finally almost done with CN, after over two months since starting this quest. I would estimate I have 1 or 2 more days on my blue cross, and then I'll do an ao1000 of red, orange, green, and blue only, so that they'll hopefully be equal to white and yellow, and then I'm done with CN!

I've decided, I'm actually going to start grinding 5x5 (hopefully at least 50 solves a day), and hold off on square-1 and megaminx (still learning CSP's). I don't know why I made this decision, but i would like to be at least sub 1 by the end of the summer. BTW I'm still working on 3x3 finishing up CN.

I just got an aochuang wr m today! My first impressions are that it's a very fast cube, which meas I'll have to adapt to s lighter turning style, but it also means that my hands won't get tired. Only issue I really have with this cube is that the outer layers are super fast and have weak magnets, which makes my 3x3 stage a little bit worse. But, this will likely be my main over my Valk 5 M, since my hands often get tired from solving that a lot.

Oh, and by the way, I broke my 5x5 PB single with a 52.383 with this cube!Screenshot 2020-06-19 at 22.11.53.png

I smashed my PB ao12 today! Previous PB ao12 was 1:05.573. After a day of having the aochuang WR M the lube has started to settle in and my hands are much more used to it now.

This may be a little off topic, but should I get the Aochuang Wrm, or the MGC 5x5 and the MGC Elite 2x2? I want to get into more events as I only to 3x3 and 4x4 right now

I've never tried the MGC 5x5, but I would probably recommend it over the aochuang wr m unless you want to be serious about 5x5 because of the price

They have similar performance and the MGC seems to be a more well-rounded cube in terms of its qualities than the WRm according to the people I have talked with that own the Aochaung WRm. The pro shop MGC5 was my main for a while until I got the Celeritas Valk but only because it fit my turning style a little better. I think that the MGC is the best cube overall since it doesn't favor or disfavor most turning styles compared to the Aochuang GTS v1, WRm, and Valk.

I got a sub 9 ao50 and a sub 9.2 ao100 with blue cross today! Which to me means I'm done with blue cross. To those of you that aren't a fan of personal progress threads, this is more than just me breaking a PB, this is a massive accomplishment that I've worked over 2 months for. At this point I've started doing solves with just red, orange, green, and blue cross, to really make sure I'm comfortable with each color and have no biases. I've done 100 solves so far with those 4 colors, completely neutral, and the times are very similar to my normal 3x3 times, except I do a few more stupid things, like solving the cross incorrectly, inserting f2l pairs with flipped edges, etc. I'm probably going to do 500-1000 solves with those 4 colors and then I will be fully color neutral!

I've decided that I want to get decent at cloncc (maybe like sub 12 or sub 10), so I ordered a lingao. If any clockers here can give me tips on how best to go about setting it up, or any other tips I need to know, that would be greatly appreciated.
As for square-1, I've kind of just been solving whenever I feel like it, and I'm averaging around low 17, but the U and D layers are always way too fast, no matter what I lube them with. I've learned all the csp's for star, square, and kite, with a couple barrell cases.
