Hey guys! I am a new-ish speedcuber from the USA. 2 Christmas' ago I got a Rubik's brand cube in my stocking and became obsessed with solving it. I watched tons and tons of tutorials on how to solve it with the beginners method. I improved rapidly after learning how to solve it and was averaging around 35 seconds with beginners method. I learned CFOP with 4 look last layer and intuitive f2l. I eventually dropped my times down to sub 20 and I was so happy. I learned how to solve 2x2 and 4x4. I stopped cubing around a year ago because I started basketball season and was not super interested in speedcubing. just a few weeks ago i started solving my 3x3 which is a thunderclap v2 and just thoroughly enjoyed it. Since then one of my friends let me borrow his Gan 356 X and I love it! My times are only at 22-25 seconds but I am having a ton of fun improving back to my old times.
