I did my first ao5 on a bluetooth timer(cubeast). I got a 10.64, which was pretty good. Here is the link to my best solve, which was 9.03.
In one solve, my cube popped during an A perm, so that was sad

4x4 PB Single!

I even got double parity, but I just executed everything super smoothly, and got sub 50 single.

Current goals
2x2: sub 3 global
3x3 sub 10 global, and learn full COLL except for sune and antisune
4x4 Sub 50 global
5x5: sub 2 global
6x6: get a 6x6
pyra: sub 8 global
skewb: sub 8 global, but idc
clock: get a clock
megaminx: sub 2:30 global
squan: sub 15 global
3x3 OH: sub 20 global
3x3 BLD: learn how to do it
3x3 FMC: sub 30 global, once I start practicing it again

I'll be editing this post if/when I reach these goals, and I'll create new ones. Hopefully, I can reach at least a few of these before summer break ends, because then I won't have as much time to practice.

Ok so I plan to learn the COLLs for the rest of the cases but only for the ones that the standard alg gives a diagonal corner swap since those are really bad But that is around 2 algs, so it should be rlly easy.

Lol i just got a meqaminx PB by almost 40 seconds!

I've started to try and lookahead during f2l and s2l, and while i'm still pretty bad it has gotten quite a bit faster. Also, practicing mega might make me even better at 5x5

Scramble is legit a two move cross into a 3 mover. I planned first 2 pairs in inspection. I got a G perm tho, but still really happy with this single.

I have a new main!
Basically I wanted to make my Dayan tengyun M better, so I tightened it and swapped the springs to stronger ones, which slowed down the cube a bit and it barely pops anymore. Since it is slower, the weak magnets become less of a problem so now I can spam tps peacefully(most of the time) without locking up much.
So it's my new main. Still wish that the magnets were a little stronger, but it's at least at an acceptable strength.

I actually just got another 3x3 PB Single!

Also, unfortunately, I uploaded a video reconstructing my previous PB a day ago, so it's already outdated lol.

Sub 1 on virtual!
I still don't know the keyboard controls fully, so I just use a snapshot of the key map and leave it on my screen while solving, so I can look. I think once I memorize, I can easily get sub 20, or even sub 15(correct me if I'm too ambitious).

EDIT: I practiced a bit more and am globally sub 1, with a 32.97 single, sub 50 mo3 and ao5, and sub 1 ao12, almost sub 50.

Finally got back to FMC. I actually did a mo3 in the weekly comp and got a 37.00 mo3, which isn't terrible ig. I put the solves in the FMC thread, but here they are:

It took so long, I have no idea how people actively do multiple rounds of this. My brain hurts.

Now that I finished OLL, I want to learn something else. I'm not going to learn more algs, but I will try to consistently do cross + 1 in inspection. Currently I just plan the cross. My strategy is to first use the predict it using the easy cross function, and work my way to predicting first pair in normal crosses.
