I onlh started cubing about two months ago. I have gotten much faster since I started, and i really like it. But why do I like it? More importantly, why do you like cubing?

It's fun.
It's relaxing. (Compared to the daily stresses of raising kids, I can leave those emotions aside and let my brain take over.)
It's calming.
It's tactile and I like the feeling of moving my fingers very quickly.
I can do it anytime for as long or short as I'm able each day.
I can stop anytime. (When things are happening all the time in one's household it's hard to get into things like reading because it takes a big chunk of time to get anywhere whereas cubing only takes seconds.)
The sense of accomplishment I get when I break personal bests.
Self-improvement is always a satisfying feeling.
It keeps my mind sharper. (At least, this is my belief.)

Yeah, those are some of the reasons.

Btw I think there was a thread about this but not 100% sure.
I think this too.

As a kid, I've always had the idea of creating chaos in a society and restoring the balance.
In other words, taking over the world, destroying it and rebuilding it with everything having my face and ideals on/in it.
With the Rubik's cube, I can do just that..without the face/ideals on/in it.
It's one of those things I can pick up, "destroy," and fix whenever I want to and requires me no effort to start so.
It also helps my observation, patience, hand strength, memory, right brain, attention, reaction, self-consciousness and space perceptionability.

I like cubing because it is just soo fun! Just the idea of beating PB's all the time and getting new puzzles is just so amazing and awesome! Cubing seems like something that could easily last a lifetime (like redkb he's been cubing for about 10 years he said). Even though I'm still new to it I can still have just as much fun as those who have been cubing for many many years. It's such a great hobby to have and I love it. I also like how if i don;t have any electronics on me but I have a cube/puzzle I would be good to go and not be bored out of my mind. LOL
