UISO 2019

UISO      “Given a lever long enough and a pivot on which to place it, one could shift the world” is a famous saying by an antique mathematician Archimedes. The primary definition of a lever is that for the effort needed to be exerted to decrease, the length of the lever should be increased. One can also apply this law to life. Experiences and opportunities build up the life’s levers which together motivate a person to succeed. However, a lever becomes obsolete when forced upon an inaccurately placed pivot. Succeeding to fulfill oneself with passion and ideals is to build and place a solid pivot. Otherwise, these opportunities and experiences are to become useless. Majority fail to meet the balance between these two variables and thus all their efforts to achieve their full capacity are in vain. I, on the other hand, strive to be someone to find that balance.

Sleep Less, Feel Better

unist      As the lazy days of post-semester break come to an end, the painful reality of predawn alarms and endless assignments strike UNIST students. Let us take a look inside a lecture room on one of those days. You will most likely encounter a professor vigorously speaking to students sitting at their desks. If you take a closer look, you will see that students are either nodding off or completely asleep.

However, sleep is not just a quantity, but it is rather about the quality. Have you ever heard one claiming that adults need 8 hours while children need 10 in order to get enough sleep? You better forget that, as the science already accepted it as a myth.

First of all, accept my apologies for a week without a single post. Surely I could take an action on that, but I was too lazy. So now, I’m writing this post at an almost deadline date — I should certainly do something with it. 😐

Getting out of the comfort zone

Ten minutes remaining in the contest, but you’re still a few points short of advancing. Armed with your mighty coding powers, the first straightforward problems fall easily, but the next ones are proving tough nuts to crack. After some incorrect attempts and unsuccessful searches for dumb bugs in the code, you finally decide to read the problem statements one more time. At last, you find an edge case you haven’t considered . You fix the bug with a few quick keystrokes. You upload the source code file…

I'm back... (again)

Вообщем, я здесь, вот с таким блогпостом. На самом деле думал вот по английский напишу, а не получилось; нет, не так: вроде могло бы получиться, но особого желания то уже нет…

Trying to do my best

Hi there!

It’s been a long time since I last wrote here (2 months). But one can ask where did my first post go: it disappeared… Just kidding: I deleted it for some reasons. To be exact: some time ago my Internet provider or the whole country decided to block WordPress.com, so I deleted my site (or I thought so), anyway now I am here with this blog post.
