And spin

I’ve been baffled by the mysteries contained within that colorful cube for too long. This evening, I sat down with Tieg’s and refused to get up until it revealed all of its secrets. Well, I think it opened up more than it revealed, but at least I’ve learned enough to put it in its place.

Like so many, this success didn’t come without help; if you are interested in taking the first steps in becoming a rubik’s ace, check out Jasmine Lee’s awesome write-up of a beginner’s rubik’s solution. With it, you can’t go wrong—I didn’t.

And after you’ve made it through that, you can watch a video surely designed to put us beginners in our places. I still have lots of practicing to do.

We all spend a lot of our time doing this metaphorically, but this month, I’ve started tracking how long I can do this with good old juggling balls. It started small, but I’ve improved pretty decently over the past three weeks. My best so far is 15 minutes and 21 seconds. It’s not the 11 hours 4 minutes and 22 seconds of 3-ball juggling world record holder Terry Cole, but as the graph indicates—I’m coming Terry.
