I first got into cubing when I found a Rubik’s cube at my grandpa’s house. I played around with it for a while but couldn’t figure out how to solve it. I decided that I wanted to learn how so I brought it home and looked up how to do it. I practiced for a while but I never really memorized all the algorithms. I took a break for some time, but I soon got back into it. I started trying to memorize the basic algorithms again and this time I was able to do it. Now that I could solve the cube I wanted to get faster, so I started practicing every day. Eventually I got my time down to an average of 1 minute and 30 seconds but then I got stuck. I couldn’t get my time any faster and I suspected that the problem was the cube, so I researched speed cubes and found one that was much better quality. With the new cube I got my time down to a 50 second average, and that’s where I am now. My current fastest time is 39 seconds.
