Cubing

INTRODUCTION

Invented in 1974 by Hungarian sculptor and architecture professor Erno Rubik, the Rubik’s cube has challenged and frustrated countless numbers of players who have ever picked up the 3-D toy puzzle.3-x-3-rubik

 

PART 1

It first started in 2014 at school, when we were practicing a dance with a bunch of grade 6 students. One of the grade 6 students had a Rubik’s cube, and I confusingly and randomly trying to solve the cube, failed. That’s when it hit me, my brain was then inspired in cubing, so I got a cube as soon as possible, and when I bought my first – ever cube, and I desperately learned and memorized how to solve the cube. But after about 6 months of cubing, inside the core of the cube, one of the screws got loose and soon got broken, after, and me on the other hand desperately tried to fix it for a week but realized that I couldn’t, that’s when my cube was gone and my cubing skills were forgotten. That’s when the miracle happened one year after that moment, on December, my classmate, Mike, was bringing 2 cubes, that’s when my best friend, Manolo, got interested and asked Mike to teach him how to solve the Rubik’s cube. Fast forward two days, I also got interested on the cube and I asked if he could also teach me how to solve the Rubik’s cube. That’s when my cubing skills got back, again, and I also desperately listened and memorized the best that I can from Mike. We continued practicing along with Ethan on our speedcubing group, and we practiced and practiced until such time that we became faster and better! My record before was about 1 – 2 minutes but now it’s about 37 seconds! Then, I started researching in Social Media and discovered speedcubing, and so I introduced it to our group and we practiced again, I still continued researching and I also discovered multi – cubing, it is solving different types of cubes, until such time of 16422280_10208504977768571_7023388511384092731_oresearching, my interest of the cube got from 20% to 80%. So I bought a 2 by 2 and a 4 by 4 Revenge cube – of course I already had a 3 by 3 Rubik’s cube at that time. Even though I’m writing only this part of my journey to speedcubing, there is more to discover and learn throughout this journey that I am destined towards to. Even though I can’t afford that much cubes, I am still proud of my skills.

Special thanks to my cubing helper, Raffy Rosal, and to my supportive parents, Effem and Noelli Amancio, and my loving brothers!
