Our team qualified for ICPC World Finals 2022 on November 21st, 2021 at SEERC. We will participate at the World Finals this Thursday, April 18th, 2024 in Luxor. We've been thinking how much time has passed since then and about all the things that occurred since. Here are a few of my notes:

  • 879 days have passed, or 2 years 4 months and 28 days
  • Got engaged and married
  • My rating dropped by 116 points
  • I gained 35kg
  • My teammates moved into two different countries to study
  • Novak Đoković won 4 Grand Slams, 3 Masters and 2 ATP Finals
  • Two major international wars were (re)started
  • Messi became World Champion
  • India became most populous country
  • Queen Elizabeth died
  • Everybody started caring about AI again

I'm sure many of you have the same experience as us, leave any cool facts in the comments :)

Best of luck to everyone, especially those not directly competing with us!

P.S. Don't take this as a dig at ICPC — while I dislike this long pause, some of the stuff has been really bad luck on their side. I'm thankful to finally have the opportunity to participate at this grand event. One thing they could fix is not knowing whether we qualified until last August...
