I've been practicing a lot of 3x3, but I don't know if I'd say I'm sub-30 yet. At any given time my ao5 and ao12 are usually sub-30, and I just got my ao100 to under 30 seconds. I feel like I need to work on last layer because I usually finish F2L at 20 seconds or sooner, yet my times are high 20s or low 30s most of the time.

Thank you to everyone who voted. I think I've decided to do 3x3, Pyraminx, 5x5, and Clock. I think it'll be fun to try a ton of new events but I'll hold off on Square-1 for now. Hopefully my mom won't get mad when I tell her I want to spend 30 more dollars on new cubes 😬

PB mo3 and ao5 (3x3)! 22.05 and 22.43 seconds respectively! 🤯

I'm really hoping to get a sub-30 average at comp. My averages at my first comp were 30 in the first round and 32 in the second round, but hopefully I'm less nervous this time because I was literally shaking during my solves last time.

I'm literally so happy I just got my first sub-20 single (19.03)!! It was also fullstep, here's the scramble:

D2 L U L2 U B2 D L2 U B2 L2 U2 R2 U2 L' U F' L U' R D' (for some reason I can't figure out how to attach exported cstimer times and scrambles but whatever)

PB mo3! I think I can also officially say that I am sub-30!

For some reason I've started averaging mid-20s (I'm really happy though), idk what I'm doing differently. Also almost got an 18 second solve if it weren't for an E-perm.

I'm kind of second guessing doing 5x5 now because I'm already not great at 4x4. I average 2 1/2 minutes (on 4x4) and the time limit for 5x5 at the comp is 2:45... I'm thinking it's a bad idea, so I'm probably just going to do 3x3, Pyraminx and Clock, and try to get better at those rather than do just okay on a lot of events.

CLOCK DOES NOT MATTER. DO 5x5
