Humanity lives in an organized and systematic structure, just like a beehive. Everyone lives their own life. It differs from others by its own values, hobbies, and tastes. On the other hand, we also have responsibilities towards the society we live in. We are responsible for ourselves and each other. Society is also responsible to us. And we come together on different occasions within all these unwritten rules. But meeting for our hobbies is also the most comfortable common ground to express ourselves. Because we gather there without considering professional interests such as work, however, some events stand out with their originality and differences.
