I return...
... to these forums. Feels good man.

I resume...
...speedcubing. Which involves relearning a large amount of the lingo, doing a diagnostic average of...12? (or was it the best 10 out of 12? I don't remember now :( ), and reviewing some algs. Maybe switching to ZZ. The feelings of nostalgia are overwhelming me.

I quit...
...putting things off until "I GET AROUND TO IT." Guess what.

I have a freaking Round To It.

Also, whoever designed this particular Round To It is either a schizophrenic or an idiot.



I change...
...like Obama doesn't.

I Quit posting until I understand things more & am a bit more mature.

EDIT: Hopefully this will give me more time to work on solving, & I can come back with much more knowledge of the cube to help people. I still may post occasionally but only when necessary.

I came back to cubing after a long hiatus. I got lower 40 averages before. Now I'm in the mid-40 range. :(

I'm gonna stop posting in the forums for a while. I'm doing something horribly wrong, and I'm gonna find out what it is. Hope I'll be a better poster when I come back.

Edit: Why should I pause, I'll just improve the quality of my posts now. I start again.

I took a break for a few weeks but now I return to cubing and I want to reach my goal, which is sub 30 ;) And to do this I'll continue learning Full OLL+PLL :) I hope this time I'll really do it before taking another break :D

I'd recommend working on F2L instead. You can easily get sub-15 with 2-look OLL.
Sub 15? Jesus. I wouldn't wait that long. I'm not even sub 15 yet, but then again I'm comparing apples(Fridrich) and oranges(petrus).

Yes, I know that 2L OLL solves can be really fast, too. But I already know many algorithms and I think it will be an advantage when I learn them as soon as possible. But you're right I still suck a bit on F2L. I always try to get better there, but it takes a long time for me.

Can Roux be a mango then?
I'd call it either Papaya or Guava.
Pineapple!!
