How I plan to accomplish my goals for this year:
I already know half of L CLL and its been easy to learn the algs so far just recognition that troubles me. I also have a week-long break in February from school that I hopefully can learn L, U and possibly . I also plan to finish learning PLL by then. Halfway through February Nordic skiing ends so I will have much more time to learn algs/ grind. 3x3 Summer break plus any time = learning easy OLL and F2L algs. 4x4: Be more efficient, turn faster and grind for sub minute. My 5x5 is really dirty, the corner cutting is bad( I got it before I got lube) so I might get a new one as it used to be the most fun event for me. 6x6: Turn more acutely, faster, grind. Prya: Lookahead, efficiency I need WAY faster turning speed. Skewb: Grind.

I want to improve on my lookahead this year. I do not want to be looking at what I am solving by 2024.

I've noticed that last layer seems to be why im not sub-20 3x3 ( plus pauses and stuff) So I'm going to start learning full OLL.

The alg count definitely isn't the reason. You can definitely learn OLL if you want, but what you really should focus on if your LL is taking too long is speeding up your algs. Make sure you're using good finger tricks for all your algs (J Perm has videos for both OLL and PLL on good algs & finger tricks, plus there are countless other good resources) and practice them until you can do them all pretty quickly. OLL and PLL should maybe take 5-6 seconds combined

Thanks for the advice! I'll try to fit in time for working on my fingertricks/execution too! But I still want to learn a large chunk of OLL.
