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.

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 :D

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.

Round 154
21.57
23.41, 22.60, 20.88, 20.67, 22.20, 24.16, 20.92, 18.98, 19.10, 22.74, (17.45), (25.26)

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.
