The rare chance of a lifetime happens more than you would think, it comes around so often you could miss one when you blink. It happens when you walk to school or on your way to work, it comes from people that you meet and even from a jerk. You might find one while jogging or while walking through a hall, you’ll spot one while you read a book or shopping in the mall. The point is they are everywhere just waiting to be found, so be alert and ready when the next one comes around.
