One night back when I was fourteen years old, I was scanning the a radio channels for a station to tune in. It did not take long before I became frustrated, most channels were featuring love songs and rap, which I am not a fan of. I thought I was not into music until... I switched to 98.7 MHz. The song played had no lyrics but the rich melodious voices of the instruments were enough to enchant me. Lo! I discovered my music taste. Soon, I found out I am into instrumental music, choral, and aria too; those sound tracks we hear in the background when watching animé, and movies.
At first, I find these preferences quite isolating because many people find them boring. That was until I found my brethren in YouTube through these channels:
Happiness can't surely bring about satisfaction. One may become happy due to positive events he or she experiences like when watching comedy sitcoms. Feeling satisfied about the show is a different thing. An individual will only experience this when certain criteria are met such as the originality of the joke and the manner of its delivery.

You wake up and open your laptop to check email updates and notifications on the projects you handle. By the time you finish a third of the tasks, you look at the time and realize that you'll be late for school. You abandon your breakfast plans and head to the shower room.

Living in a fast-paced world is not a walk in the park. Everything should be planned and prioritized. In the process, you may overlook important things. You become nothing more than a machine.
Reality is a broad term that encompasses the physical world, accepted scientific and mathematical laws and theorems, and socities’ norms, mores, and values. To say that reality is permanent is folly. Terrains and seas will change. Empires will rise one after another. The guiding principles of society’s structure will cease to be valid in the future. A face of reality will surely change over time.
A growing number of researches are focusing on the development of autonomous learning robots, brain – machine interface and the like. The rapid advancement of technology widens the capability of science to develop great technologies. However, studies should be grounded on a set of morals-ethics- that will not threaten or devaluate humans and other living things.
It’s responsible for the great breakthroughs in the multifaceted realms of computing, communication and technology. It’s a perfect interfusion of mathematics and science. It’s one of the dreaded programs in college because of its difficulty. It’s engineering.
