adrian's cubing stuff

My cubing journey began in September of 2022 when a friend offered to teach me how to cube. I completed on my own for the first time a few days later, on October 4th. Ever since then, I have been continually practicing to get faster.

Some facts about me:

  • I solve using the CFOP method.
  • Currently, my global average is ~20 seconds.
  • My main cube is the MoYu RS3 M 2021.

Things I'm working on: learning PLL, improving F2L execution, better inspection, lookahead.

PLLs learned: Aa Ab F Ga H Ja Jb Na Nb Ra Rb T Ua Ub V Y Z

PLLs not learned: E Gb Gc Gd

The next event I want to learn is: 3BLD!

10 Sep 2023: Wow, it's been a long time since I've posted an update. Progress has been slow—very slow—but steady. My ao100 is at just over 21 seconds, so I think sub-20 is in reach. For reference, my best ao5 and ao12 are 18.35 and 19.65.

12 Jun 2023: From this day on I am officially a proud Pyraminx owner. I saw the puzzle on sale at Target and simply couldn't resist! The turning is pretty crappy, but nothing a little lube can't fix. After playing with it for a few days I've set and broken a few personal bests which I have recorded below.

13 Mar 2023: Two big accomplishments—sub-23 ao100 and a new PB of 12.71! I absolutely did not expect to beat my previous record by such a wide margin. The scramble was ridiculously lucky (XCross and two free pairs after solving the first). I've linked the reconstruction in my PB table.

13 Feb 2023: Just got my first ever sub-20 ao5! The times were: 19.26 18.77 19.88 (21.60) (16.52).

Noisy celebration followed. It was a very exciting achievement; I think I'll be averaging under 20 seconds consistently soon.

10 Feb 2023: My YJ MGC 2x2 just arrived!

Practicing 2x2 was fun, although going back to 3x3 felt extremely weird.

8 Feb 2023: Got a crazy new PB of 14.97. This solve was quite lucky—I got an unplanned XCross in 5 moves. Reconstruction is linked in my PB table.

2 Feb 2023: Took a couple glamour shots of my 3x3 for an ongoing project. Quite scandalous.

22 Jan 2023: I went to my first competition recently!

Highlights: getting my Mirror cube signed by none other than Max Park!
