I have been struggling to reach Candidate Master for a while, and in today's contest, this happened:
Feeling very sad. Hoping to reach CM in the next round...
Jokes aside, thanks to all the amazing problem-setters that make problems for this platform. Also, thanks to all my fellow contestants, we push each other to do better in every contest : )
If you feel stuck at a certain rating range, remember that with enough practice (and the right kind of practice) you CAN move forward!
This won't age well when I drop to CM next rated contest
