The Daydreamer – Carpe Diem

The more scarce an item is, the higher it goes up in value, that’s what most ECON 101 classes in college teach you on the very first day. What they don’t teach you though is that the same goes for truly great moments throughout your lifetime. So few are these moments that when you get the chance to experience them you must truly appreciate them. Whenever you find an opportunity for a new experience, we always advise you to jump in because at one of those times where you do, a great moment is always around the corner! This week’s Daydreamer features several fantastic events for you to enjoy, including a Full Moon Desert Marathon that only comes around once a year!
