2x2: get NR2 average, i.e. sub 1.55 (not NR because that is 1.18 by Antonie)
3x3: get a sub 4 single, because I made bet back in 2021 that I would have one before 2024. (I don't even have a sub 5 yet, help!!!)
4x4+: none
Skewb, pyra, squan: get a semi-decent official average, nothing special
Buy a clock and become sub 10
Megaminx: sub 1
3BLD: sub 20 global, sub 15 single
4BLD: sub 2 global
5BLD: sub 4:30 global, if I'm lucky ER mean but that's hard
MBLD: 45 points, try to do 3 attempts per week
Get a 9BLD success
Learn the rest of ZBLL, which is probably like 90%

Most importantly: actually start practising!! I haven't seriously practiced anything for months and I hate that. I'm really motivated to practice but haven't had time to do so, and if I had time I didn't know what event to practice and I just did nothing. I do notice huge practice boosts before competitions, so I want to go to as many as possible.

3x3: sub 11.5, learn full OLL
5x5: sub 1:10 global, sub 1 single
6x6: sub 2 global
7x7: sub 2:50 global

I won't be practicing much due to other priorities so if I achieve them, I'll treat it as a bonus.

2x2 - Learn CLL and potentially full EG if I actually like the event; sub-3
3x3 - Idk what's realistic for a year, maybe averaging 12ish?
4x4 - Sub-50?
5x5 - I don't care at all about big cubes, maybe sub-2:00?
6x6-7x7 - Get a mean
3BLD - I don't do much BLD atm, so I guess sub-2
FMC - Consistantly sub-40
3x3 OH - Sub-30
Clock - Sub-10
Megaminx - Never practice, maybe sub-2?
Pyraminx - Never practice; as long as I can relearn L4E and get sub-10 I'm happy
Skewb - Remove this event
Square-1 - Learn to do this and maybe sub-30 if I actually like it
4-5BLD - Get an official success
MBLD - Get whatever is comprable to a 5BLD success officially

I also want to get as many official results as possible, and if possible, a complete profile (minus 4/5BLD means)

A lot of these goals assume I'll actually practice the event, which is far from definite, so I'm not expecting to get all of these, although it's possible. Here's to 2023!
