I'm not really disappointed or anything. Really, I was pretty happy with the average. Not too many good solves, but I was very consistent in the 20-21 range. Even if I did achieve sub-20 and graduated, I would have stayed with the thread, because to be honest those 2 averages were pretty lucky. I won't leave until I'm getting sub-20s with little warming up.

number of times: 12/12
best time: 17.00
worst time: 23.75

current avg5: 21.79 (σ = 0.93)
best avg5: 20.17 (σ = 1.85)

current avg12: 21.30 (σ = 1.62)
best avg12: 21.30 (σ = 1.62)

Some really inconsistent solves there, but that accurately shows my current average now. That 35 contained an 8 second cross, 2 f2l fails, an OLL fail and a g perm

A complete mixed bag of inconsistency. Not half surprising with nearly a week of no practice with a business trip followed by a visit to family. Nice non lucky single though.

I'm definitely doing better with the new cube. But I still make too many mistakes. This time I wrote down all the bad mistakes that I had in this average. I'd say this is pretty typical for me. Do other people who are just a little over 20 seconds on average make this many bad stupid mistakes like this, or is it just me?

1: On very first turn, turned the wrong face because corner cutting worked differently than I expected. Probably cost me two seconds undoing and starting over.
6: Did wrong OLL, so two OLLs. The worst part is, the wrong one I did was harder than the one I should have done. I realized I had done the wrong one about 3 moves into it.
10: Inserted a pair wrong and had to take it back out and reinsert it.
12: Miscalculated the cross, badly. Probably a 5 second cross since I had to figure it out again once I messed it up.
