from 21st Nov >
I'm pausing speedcubing until maybe after xmas. Modern Warfare 2 now takes up just about all my spare time and I hardly practice speedsolving any more. I still do casual solves here and there, but not really averages.

I now return to cubing. I've done my first averages in 6 weeks and I'm starting to feel the bug again. I'll probably start doing the weekly comp and practicing BLD again.

I think I need a cubesmith order and a bunch of new puzzles to get me back into it.

And I need to commit to going to Bristol in March, it should be really fun.

Taking a break sorta. I'm pretty happy with my official times, and I won't have another competition for at least half a year or more. I'll be practicing other events, like sq1, pyraminx, megaminx. And also, school is starting tomorrow, so I'll have homework and stuff. (Not that that'll take up alot of time)

Won't be posting that much. I hope to still do weekly comps and stuff I guess.

Dw, I definitely won't quit.

I quit cubing for the time being.

I have realized that it really is possible to do what you set your mind to.
Tomorrow is my one year of cubing. I think one year was enough.

I want to thank everyone that helped me along the way. The journey was really incredible. I will still cube once in a while, but no longer for speed. I will dedicate my time into something more productive, like playing guitar, learning some programming, or getting better at chemistry and math.

Once again, thanks for everything from everyone! =)
I hope to regain interest in years to come, so until then, I am Eduardo Vite, and I hope to cross by you guys again later in life. =)
Thank you.

I quit buying cubes from china unless it's really necessary. I can't take the shipping costs, the travel time and customs. I would prefer just to buy off ebay. SAVE ME iSpinz's store!
I quit using my whole wrist to force a turn. I just figured out how to do R U R' U' properly and I'm addicted! Maybe now I can get sub-40 consistently...

Kindof back into cubing. Haven't done much the past month. Went back to school today so that's going to be taking alot of my time. None the less i'll be working on getting better at 3x3. Looking forward to a comp in New Zealand sometime later this year.

Also might try to do as many weekly comps as i can, haven't been that motivated to do them these days. Will give as many events a go as possible. Come to think of it i might put a bit of work into my FMC.

That's all, looking forward to seeing people in New Zealand.

I start learning full OLL. No idea why, but not knowing every single OLL I get annoys me greatly. I will be adding it to my signature every time I learn a new one.

Currently at 26/57.
Now you know what to have as a sig :D

Oh shoot, gotta update my numbers.
Race to 2LLL?
I'll leisurely join in this race... I'm on 35/57 at the moment but I hardly spend any time cubing any more lol so you'll probably both beat me...
