This was in the first round of 3BLD at the competition I organized, CCFC Fall 2013. I wasn't disappointed after the solves, just really tired from running cubes all day. I went on to win in the finals with a 33.18.

Results:
Round 1: 29.65, DNF. 29.40
Final: DNF, 33.18, 39.44

yay.

Here are my solves from the finals:


The times were DNF, 33.18 and 39.44.

I did a shh at the beginning because it was the beginning of the round, and no one had done a solve yet.

Do you remember corners more as sentences than images now, seeing as you have to remember them for less than 30 seconds? If not, how do you incorporate things like "fifth" and "utmost" into an image?

It's about 50/50 at this point, but I've been moving in that direction.

For fifth, I imagine five of them, and then it's the fifth one that the thing is happening to. For utmost, I either just remember it in the sentence, or imagine whatever comes after in a really extreme way.
