Hello everybody, Isaac here, just wondering what's going on in everyones life.
I am currently planned to be going to San Francisco then traveling south to go to Disneyland, then we shall go to Spain for 2 of my cousins weddings.
I have been playing Black Ops on PS3 and am very good at the game. I am ranked like 1200th in headquarters overall on my Life_TheScope account.
Well, reply with tithings, Isaac.

Weddings in spain sound sweet!

Well i'm trying to buy a car and get an engineering internship. but since your wondering whats going on in everyone's life, I nearly did something worth bragging about! Almost made the qualifying mark to the Olympic trials for pole vault. missed it by a foot D:
...needed to clear 18', made 17' and almost 17'8" a little while back before the qualifying deadline...woulda been really close to going if i left that up :P also woulda been pretty lucky to clear 18ft after making 17'8" but i had a chance...well got 4 years to train and for 2016 XD annnnd that's my summer. (lol Olympic trials would have been a cool excuse for not meeting deadlines in schmittd's comp)

Also I enjoy techno.

rl, you wanna train me in pole vault this summer? jk, but i dont have a coach and im the only pole vaulter at my school and i just started this year, so as you can probably guess, im not very good haha... i got 10'6" which i was proud of for being a first time vaulter. obviously i need a coach haha. but congrats on 17 feet! thats sweet considering the highest ive ever seen in person is 15 feet. it wouldve been awesome if you qualified for the olympics!

and as for my summer, ill be relaxing. playing soccer or fc when im not life guarding (a little extra money is always nice)

lol you pole vault too? thats awesome! actually if you sent me some videos or just wanted advice on specific techniques I bet i could help you quite a bit! (got nothing better to do) but you really need a good coach to vault high, the event is insanely technical/mental/physical. my dad coaches me and he jumped 18' back in the dinosaur age, so he is of course a great coach.

I guess I'll post what I'm actually doing during the summer haha... Working at a summer camp for 7 weeks, 9am to 6pm. I don't even know what I'm being paid but whatever, it could probably suck more :p

Nothing else really. Although I do plan on going places with people. I don't know when or where but it'll happen... eventually :ninja:

I'm going to some places in Europe with a cruise, and also a place in England. Could be good to test my English =D. I can't play FC there so I will be away sometimes.
and I'm also looking for an electric drum kit, so I probably will play with it all summer.
be prepared neighbors >:D

And I'm going to Vegas to compete in the U.S. National Rubik's Cube Championships :P

Thank you, but that's a really weird standard you've got there. I've been to 10 competitions, and only made it to the finals in 3x3 2 or 3 times. Have you ever been to a comp? I know a lot of Dutch speedcubers.

@{???} Thanks :smile: That was about my PB when I went to my first comp :p

yeah, I joined 3 competitions and I'm going to another one in september. I just learned some PLL's so maybe I have a good change :) , and if you know some dutch speedcubers, you will probably know mats valk. he got a WR for the 4x4 :D.
what is actually your PB?
is it me or are here many speedcubers?

Yes, of course I know Mats. He made me consider switching my 4x4 method :p
My PB is 7.58 with a PLL skip, before that it was 7.61 with an LL skip. I average around 12-13.
