3BLD PB! I think I could be so much faster than my average if I didn't have to review corners and could actually remember them. I could actually remember the corners without reviewing on this one.

Another thing, I'm learning intuitive l4e, and it just seems weird how much more understandable the method is compared to when I was first thinking about learning it a few months ago. Learning certain methods or cubes seems really hard until it just clicks and then it's insane how naturally it can be understood.

I've done like 300 pyraminx solves with l4e, but I still average about 1-2 seconds slower than my average with lbl. I think it is either because my V is inefficient or I am pausing too much. I'm also hoping to start learning CLL for 2x2, though I will probably procrastinate that.

First Multi-Blind solve. 1/2, the incorrect one only had two swapped edges.

Been practicing a lot of 4x4 lately, averaging around sub-1:15. I just realized that I have no idea what method I use. I solve all of the centers, then the 4 white edge pairs, then I use 323 edge pairing for the final edges, then 3x3 stage, OLL, PLL. Does anyone know what method this is? I thought it was reduction but idk anymore.

I've used Yau before and tried switching back to it, but I'm a lot slower and can't seem to get the hang of it. Hoya doesn't seem like a good choice for me either though. I might just have to keep practicing with Yau and hopefully I'll get faster eventually.

yep keep practicing yau :)

I'm going to start focusing on learning some more algs for 3x3 and 2x2. Still haven't finished learning PLL 💀, have 3 more G perms to learn. Then I think I'll move on to full OLL and maybe some F2L algs. I'm also learning CLL, have only memorized one alg besides the ones I already knew. Really wanting to get sub-15 for 3x3 and sub-5 for 2x2.
