    I've realized, when I used to live in the states, I was the best at drawing in my school and everyone knew I was good. This didn't make me arrogant or anything but I guess I had a bit of pride that I was the best at something. Then later, when I moved to London, I was no longer the best at drawing cuz school was co-ed or something. But it made me feel empty inside, kind of, like I wasn't known for anything really, so I learnt how to speed cube and it was a cool thing I could do, but I was also passionate about, which everybody then knew me for.

    And I guess I've subconsciously always wanted to stand out from the crowd somehow, I'm just wondering if any of you lovely people have had any similar experienced?

    just wondering, do you feel you understand the rubik's cube now?

    or is it just that you've memorized the algorithms well? is it easy to get to a point where you understand the cube well?

    Id say I understand how the cube works, I learned 3x3 with a mix of algs and intuition and figuring out 4x4 and 5x5 after that was easy.
