Hey everyone! Most of you know that I have a strange obsession with rubik cubes. It started when I was in tenth grade and one of my best friends, Sydney, would bring one to school everyday and try to solve it whenever we had free time, or, let's face it, even when we were supposed to be working. For fall break that year, Syd came on vacation with me and my family and brought her rubik cube along. She got stuck in her usual place, after she solved the green side, and was complaining during the car ride. Mom must have heard her since she turned around and said, "Oh, I can do that!" We didn't believe her so Sydney handed it over, and sure enough, Mom solved it in less that two minutes! When we asked her to teach us she said she didn't know how she did it, her fingers just moved the colors to where they needed to be. We spent the rest of vacation trying to figure out how to work the darn thing.
Once I was home from vacation, I bought my own rubik cube and logged onto youtube to find out how to solve it. I stayed up all night teaching myself, then walked into class proudly on monday, rubik cube in hand, to show Sydney how it was done. (BTW, she had looked up how to do it too, and solved it before I could even show her I had one with me!) Ever since, I've been obsessed with getting my time down on solving it.
A few days ago I tweeted the link to the most amazing rubik cube, EVER! A Juicy Couture rhinestone one! You all know how obsessed I am with Juicy Couture, I mean, hello! That's where the "juicy" in my username comes from. You better believe I would have ordered it online in a heart beat, if it wasn't for the price tag attached. A whopping $68.00 is what you'd have to fork over to own one of these, and I don't know about you, but I can't spend that on a whim for something so frivolous. However, is it weird that I really long for one?
I posted a video a long time ago showing you all me solving the rubik cube link here in 2 minutes and 3 seconds (not my best time, but it'll work.) BTW, that video is so old - it was one of my first ones, ever! I feel like a totally different person, but it's fun to look back on 15 year old me. Oh, and I totally understand what mom meant when she said she couldn't explain how to solve it. My fingers just move and half the time I have no idea what they're doing. Weird...
You tell me, would you pay $68.00 for a rhinestone incrusted Juicy Couture rubik cube?
