Hey Rubik’s Cube, EFF YOU!
by Veeron the Conqueror
With the kind, helpful words from my readers, I’ve done it!!!! On the 3rd day I picked it up, I solved the puzzle that holds the power to make us all angry! Now I’ll try to learn how to do this under 5 minutes. Oh and there was no moving around stickers or breaking it apart involved! I did get help with algorithms but it’s better than removing stickers.
Unfortunately, it’s still a no go on solving this thing. I have cheated and watched Dan Brown’s video on YOUTUBE. As a complete, total NOOB he moves that damn thing far too quickly for me to follow so I’ve had to pause and take down notes various amounts of time. Also, I’ve had to work the past few days so I haven’t had any time to finish. I will, however, try again this weekend. I appreciate all the support and HELL NO I WILL NOT REMOVE THE STICKERS. I’d have to live with that dirty little secret for the rest of my life. =)
Yesterday I had the urge to cross something off of my bucket list.
I read through it (it’s not finalized just yet) and found that about 90% of the things on my list involved traveling and doing things that a broke college student can’t afford.
So I went with “Solve the Rubik’s Cube”, thinking….”baby steps.”
Six goddamned hours later, I make it to the 2nd layer and solve the top face.
A few mistakes in the algorithms, and suddenly those 6 hours became the worst 6 hours spent in my life.
5:30am came and I saw light peeking through — that’s when I knew I had to quit.
I woke up at 1pm this afternoon and restarted.
Of course, I was half asleep trying to solve the Rubik’s cube but that didn’t stop me.
Well, actually, I stopped again because my eyes were getting blurry and I was famished plus I needed my coffee.
There’s about an hour and a half until I start work but I fully intend on finishing this son of a bitch.
I’m no quitter.
Here’s a toast to crossing something off of my bucket list. *raises mug, sips coffee*…
