In 8th grade, I decided that it would be interesting to be able to solve a Rubik's cube. I went out got one and started to learn how to sole it. Within a day I had been able to solve it a couple of times and within a few weeks could do so without much thought.
By the time I was in high school, I was able to solve the cube under a minute with ease. I kept cubing and did so often in school, which eventually earned me the title "The Rubik's Cube Kid." I was known throughout the school for solving the Rubik's cube.
Around sophomore year, things had calmed down and I just solved the cube when I got bored. I still to this day enjoy cubing and still do it a couple of times a week.
