Met another cuber at tennis comp today. Sadly I wasn't brave enough to introduce myself. Its always nice to see cubers out and about!
I just finished learning pll. It took me about a month because I didn't learn one a day(which I should have) but it is okay. I took a long break before learning the g perms and one of the n perms. Here I come oll!
wish I could dono some money man... but I just wasted all my money on the YuXin WeiLong, so I couldn't. The gan x is really good though, and I'm askin for one for christmas.

Yuxin weilong? You mean Yuxin Huanglong or Moyu Weilong?
U B2 F2 L2 D' L2 F2 U R2 B2 F' U F2 R' F' U B D' B' R. 14.49 New Pb. If you do a yellow cross there is a super easy double x-cross. If you do it right(which i did not) you can get an all corners oriented oll, then pll skip.

I'm a relatively new cuber, and I average about 40.55 with 3x3. But I've been learning all of the beginner oll and pll algs, so it should drop to about 30.00 in a while.

A-fop. Nice I just have one more pll to learn then I am done with pll (n perm). Personally for learning algs I really like jperm's website as it lets you practice the cases and see many different options. Also, I sped up a lot by watching example solves by faster cubers as it helped me tremendously with F2L.
Started learning 3-2-3 edge pairing so I can hopefully get under the cutoff of 1:10 at a comp. I average 1:35 now, and the comps at the end of this month. I doubt its gonna happen, but im trying anyway. I've learnt around 40 OLLs so far
Smashed all of my PBs apart from single today, new ones around 23 seconds. Unfortunately, this is with my old technique, so this burst of speed will be short lived :(. Ah well. Good to know I can be sub 23/24 at least ;)

His goal (or her?) is to get sub-8 with petrus, so really it up to him/her to switch. Congrats anyway

Thanks! And yes my goal is to be sub 8 with Petrus. Not trying to be the fastest or anything, but ‘pushing the limits of a method’ as somebody quoted in my progress thread.
P.S. I’m a he :) if you can look at my profile ‘about’

Yeah, at one point I tried to learn petrus, but it didn't really work out. i guess it's probably pretty fast with someone with the right skills.
17.94 pb and super close to a sub 25 ao100

It would be nice if you could buy whatever cubes you wanted. Then you would be as indecisive as Shawn boucke
Yes! 14.65 PB! Easy 2x2x2, less than 3 seconds, followed by all the pieces for my expansion in plain view, two bad edges and basically a 2x2x1 skip (2 moves) and a pair already formed. Then an easy anti-Sune and then a J Perm.
I am starting to notice that my Gts2m is not corner-cutting as well as it did out of the box. I have tried re-lubing it and it helped some but is there anything else that would help it.

Maybe compress/swap the spring with MF3RS2 springs, I heard that it does a lot to your cube. Haven't exactly tried it, though.

I don't have an mf3. would qiyi sail springs work?

Why are you ashamed? We all have to start somewhere, good luck learning and getting faster!

you shouldn't be ashamed! as long as you enjoy yourself and are improving that's great. Still, fix and habits you have now so its easier in the future. I recommend becoming CN right cos it just gets harder as you improve
I've been practising a lot of 5x5 recently. My goal is to qualify for Melbourne Cube Days 2019, and hopefully make second round in 2x2 or 3x3. How fast do you need to be make seconds round in those events?

I've also been practicing a bit of OH so I can hopefully qualify for that. My 4x4 times have gone down to 1:40 now so that's always a good thing
