Day 1:
Not so much luck. I practiced 3x3 and 2x2 today. I'm kind of sub 10 at 2x2. Should I learn the ortega method? Got a few sub 40s for 3x3. Average of the day for 3x3 is 42.39 with cfop. Not bad though. Kept on getting lockups :(. Bonus: Today I made a cube cover box! Going to take a pic and post it in my status soon.

It's not that hard as the CMLL is a simplified set of algorithms you should already know from 2-Look OLL. There's very few simple algs for permitting the sides then. I learnt it in 2 days without much time to Boosted my times enormous, especially as you do not need to build a layer first. Also bei color neutral on orthega! It's really easy there. (I'm unfortunately not color neutral in cfop nor Roux but on 2x2 it came naturally)

I sorta use cfop on 2x2 except f2l but I use oll and pll.


DAY 2

Spent a lot of time practicing 3x3. Life is tough man. Couldn't get sub 30 as expected. No lucky scrambles from csTimer. I did the 2x2 weekly comp yesterday night and it was SOOO bad. I got so many lockups. Did practice 2x2 and pyraminx a little. I AM starting to get better at cfop. Many sub 40's today. But best average of 5 was 44.58. That's decent, I couldn't do sub 40's 5 in a row. Any cfop users here? Give me some tips please.

it happens to everyone. Don't give up :D
I used to be a CFOP user and my biggest tip for someone your average is to do loads of solves and get used to F2L(and of course plan all of your cross in inspection)

Do you know intuitive F2L?
A Bit... I still need like half a sec to identify the alg. Most of the time I don't.

DAY 3

Did the weekly comp for 3x3, 4x4, 5x5 and 2-3-5 relay. Got a new 5x5 single, 4x4 average and 3x3 "speedsolving" single. YES! So proud of myself. :) As for the 2-3-5 relay, nothing special... Tomorrow I will do the pyraminx and 2-3-4 relay if I have the time. Will update it here. Check out my 3x3 weekly comp results in the picture below.

you should get sub 30 no problem in 3 months easily if you know cfop. Ofc it varies person to person, but if you're commited to cubing, or you've learned cfop or another advanced method, 3 months is probably the ,aximum amount of time it takes

DAY 4

I did the weekly comp for pyraminx today. As you guys know, I'm REALLY bad at it. At the 2nd last place. 😭 I don't really care about it anyway. Check out my results below. And read my comment on it. It's pretty terrible. Otherwise, I only done pyraminx today, didn't do any other events, don't have the time, maybe tomorrow, not sure. I participated in the Cubelelo Online speedcubing comp even though I'm not an indian, LOL. Think it will be pretty fun.

I'm 15, started cubing about five months back and I average 26 on 3*3 so you shouldn't find getting sub-30 hard.
Also about a week back my pyraminx times were also bad but after some serious practice for a upcoming competition I've already brought it down from 24 to a 12 second average.

Wow that's amazing! I will definitely try to decrease my pyraminx times. I'm also pretty sure that I can achieve sub 30 with more practice!

DAY 5

I did the weekly comp for 2-3-4 relay today, and~ GOT A PB! Super happy. Make sure you check out my results and comments below! And I practiced 3x3 lots, best average of 5 was 40. Still pretty good. I'm probably going to organize my second cube comp in late November. Tell me what events you guys want. Also going to order my Christmas present which is a cube next week so it can arrive on Christmas.

DAY 6

Aiyo... Today was normal- I mean it. Did a few solves and there you go. Not too shabby, as always. I have less to say today, huh? And... was kinda sad that I did not win The Cubicle voucher. Hopefully next time.
