I've been coding since second grade and still have terrible typing skills.
RIP dude. I don't know why my WPM is so high though since my habits are pretty bad. I only use pinky on left for shift and caps lock but I don't ever use either of my thumbs or my right pinky. I also have right index as my spacebar and my teachers got mad but whatever man, I still got them fast fingers!

Putting OLL on hold for a little and learning 4lll for Megaminx. It's unbelievable how easy these algs are, with a total of about 30 minutes of half-focused effort and also some practice I've learned 3 of the EP algs and the 8 CO cases where either 3 are oriented or 2 are oriented lol
Just jumping around randomly through sets?

I've been visiting my Grandparents for the past week or so(will be getting home tomorrow), which has resulted in no practice. Did my first Ao12 in a couple weeks for 3x3 today, and the results have given varying feelings

Obviously that's 2 seconds slower than my previous average, but I feel with maybe 100ish solves I'll be back down there. Part of that may be to me playing with lookahead. I've watched a bunch of videos and I think I have an idea of what I should be doing. During a lot of my solves I definitely I had good lookahead, so now I just need to improve TPS while maintaining/improving lookahead. I've also been looking into making better use of inspection; I almost always only plan cross. I've been having trouble with it, but Cyobux's new video actually really helped. I haven't had much time to actually apply the technique, but I will be working on that soon. Also I've gotten much much more inconsistent, although again I think that's due to no practice. Will do some more solves, probably not a ton more
