In 2017 I learned how to solve a Rubik’s Cube via the Beginner’s Method. I went on to learn the three basic F2L algorithms, two look OLL and two look PLL. I bought a Valk 3 speed cube, and learned how to do an H-Perm with middle turns. At the close of 2017, I resolved to focus on reducing my debt in 2018 and decided to pour time and effort into my cubing as a low cost hobby.
I decided the following:
- Every Monday, beginning 1/1/2018 I will complete five timed solves, with scrambles from The Ruwix Wiki.
- Each week I will pick a technique to focus on to improve my overall speed and understanding of the cube.
- I will document this process.
Along with cubing, I will focus on improving my running in 2018, as this is another low cost hobby that will further enable me to reduce my personal debt.
