Final thoughts

As this semester comes to an end and our goals were hopefully met, reflecting upon my effort I think that I did extremely poorly.  My overall average time is now at 40-43 seconds which is not the best however still is improvement.  I think I have set an unrealistic goal thinking that I could solve the cube in 20 seconds. Maybe I should’ve set the goal a bit higher. However that was the past, now as we have a week left I really hope that my time would at least will go down by 1-2 seconds.  Hope everyone was successful with their goals and learned a lot during this unit! This might be my last post if I don’t improve but hopefully not!! Can’t wait for everyone’s presentations.

Time still goes by…

Hey everyone, hope everyone had a Great New Year!! I know I would like to start the year off with finishing my goal of around 30 seconds. However it doesn’t seem like I will so far. My time has been the same since last week at a solve of around 43 seconds. Although I should be practising a lot, when I do practise a lot my forearms get extremely tired limiting me to practise as frequently as wished. Hope you all are successful with your goals and see you all in less than a week!

Time goes by…

Hey class! Hope all of you are having a good break so far! The first week of the break I was working hard on the rubiks cube. I’ve realized that solving my littlest one is faster so I’ve been practising on that one. So far my time has gone down by 2-5 seconds which is not much but still is a lot of progress so far. Even if i don’t reach my goal of roughly 20-30 seconds solving it under 45 seconds is something that I wanted to do for awhile and what I’m proud of. As you all know we have about 2-3 weeks to finish are goals so hopefully I could lower my times by 7 seconds by then.  Ill keep you posted on my progress next week! Have a good break and Merry Christmas!

Working hard or hardly working?

For the past 3 days I’ve been working extremely hard to improve my time however it keeps getting worse and worse every time I try to improve. I thought this might be because of the different types and sized of the cubes I solve. (picture of all the different sizes.) To try to help my time I thought using my smaller cube would be easier so I’ve been working with that and my time seems to be the same still but I’ll still stick with that idea. Hopefully by the end of the week (in 4 days) my time will be down by at least 4 seconds usually. This is my family!
