The Alchemist


well lets start off here, my arm hasnt heal, i still cant put my arm straight, i think i just got a parking ticket while at work today . 30bucks down the drain . for the first time ever, fail in english, i learned english since i was like 3yrs old? although its not my 1st language, but i know and i speak it like its my 1st language . and right now im taking literature . omg its freaking hard . well anyways . just thought i hang around the library for a while, do some studying on math n might as well read the next assignment . its called 'The Alchemist' by Paulo Coelho . actually i was suppose to read up to page45 for today's class, but out of pure luck i just went n bought it few minutes before class . and about half an hour after class right now . iv read abt mayb near 50pages . i really highly recommed everyone to get this book n read it . its basically about a boy n his struggle with life n the ppl he meets n trying to acheive his dream . its actually about everday life n d things we face ourselves . but its in another version ..it tells abt magic n wonders . well it kinda made me think abt myself n the things i want, n why am i here in Los Angeles right now . its kinda sad when we 'have' to do the things we'r doing rather then 'want' to do the things we'r doing right now . the book made me think about the things iv gone thru to b here . its really a good book n it relates to anyone ..

well, back to reading ..

at least you got yourself something to do(reading) rather than just watching anime and surfing blogs, doing nothing alone.
Focus more to the life itself.

... in all that you do, do it with joy ...
everything you do is as important as everything else ... just somethings you attach more 'significance' to ... usually significance is something society, parents, schools, etc. is something someone ascribes to your actions, and not you.

the most important things about literature is ... beauty and profundity and, consequently, universality.

YOU know what you want to do, YOU know what you need to do what you want ... everything is on a path that leads to ... you.
i'll check the book out ... saw it in the bookstore and heard good things from others as well on it!
