single: 7.50

Time List:
1. 7.50 R2 B' U' R' F D R' B D' L U2 B2 R' B2 D2 R' U2 L' B2 U2

y2 L B' D F L2 U R2 D2 // accidental xeocross
L' U L2 U' L' // 2nd pair
U L' U2 L U L' U' L // 3rd pair
U' R U' R' // TSLE
R F' R U R2' U' R' F R' S R2 S' U2 // TTLL but with wack execution

// 38 stm 7.50 = 5.06tps

I've recently been thinking about how I get a bunch of these lucky low move solves. Turns out I have 6 actual reconned solves in 30-39 moves region. Here's the recons!

The 7.50 from above
9.79
10.05
8.42
7.93
10.49

I believe these are in reverse chronological order, so newest at the top and oldest at the bottom. A few may be out of place though.

Was just watching a cubing stream on Twitch, while doing my own solves, and happened to get a pb ao5. Very nice.
In other news, ao1k is finally below 11.5! Took a while as I managed to drop it to 11.51 a while ago while spamming solves on a very good day, but for a while after that I wasn't able to recreate that success or improve. But I've gotten a nice little bump in progress and my ao1k currently sits at 11.44, with my ao2k now at 11.51.
I have a sub 11 Ao25, and wanna get a sub 11 ao50.

As I start writing this, it is 00:13 on the 1st of January 2022. A new year. So, let's recap what I've done this year!
- Finished learning full TTLL and TSLE, making me a full ZZ-CT user
- Gone from averaging 18 to averaging low 11 (more on that below)
- I started with a PB single of 9.29, and now its 6.64!
- Started a YouTube channel
- Turned myself into emojis in the ZZ Method discord, and in the monkeytype discord (despite not being in monkeytype nor owning a keyboard at the time...)


As my last accomplishment of 2021: I present this sub 11 ao100 I got a few hours ago

It's been a lot of fun, Speedsolving. Here's to another year of improvement.
