surely he'll let you skip a day of lessons for your comp?
Let me do a quick analysis of why he won't let me go.

Local Currency is Naira, represented by #, 1USD=425NGN

Competition Registration - #2500
Driving Lessons - #25,000
Round Trip by myself (PH to Lagos and back to PH) - #123,670
Round Trip incl. Mum and Sis - #349,345
Hotel Accommodation - #60,000

If I go alone, the total is gonna be $431.66. If I go with my mum and my sister, total is gonna be $962. If you didn't notice, I'm in a third-world country and that is a s__t ton of money.
The amount I spent for registration is nothing in comparison to the least costliest thing there, which is driving.

*I haven't even included feeding.

If he lets me go, it's gonna be a s__t ton of money that he's gonna spend, and no man in their right mind would spend that much just to have my name on the WCA database.

TBH, it's better if I attend competitions outside the country because the transport situation will definitely be better.

While I'm waiting for my Yuhu to come, instead of not doing any solves at all, I'm gonna be grinding Megaminx. I've already forgotten some OLLs, which is really bad, so I'm gonna learn them back. I might even start learning some Megaminx PLLs, particularly EPLLs. I'll also go through a list of Megaminx OLLs, that carry over from 3x3, which means there should be 57 of them. I already know some of them, it's just about finding the rest of them so I can easily recognise them. I currently average around 1:20 and I want to be sub-1:20 consistently.

For 4x4, I've started learning the Parity PLLs, still haven't mastered them yet.

Uh... some algorithms that you know might not work, because of the R2/R2' rule.

I've re-learnt the OCLLs I forgot. Now to begin relearning the H-perms. Lockups and corner twists are more frequent on the Megaminx. Still a decent average tho

My laptop got taken so that means I'm stuck with csTimer on my tablet, which means I can't do as many solves. At least my cubes weren't taken this time, so i can still slow solve Megaminx and 4x4.

Sub-1:20, quite decent. Had a good start, bad ending. I tried to learn PLLs today, but I could only learn 2, U2+ and J1- since they kept showing up.
