First, in my elementary school years and middle school years, my goal was to get all As. This will be my goal throughout high school and college. In the Alchemist, his goal was to travel to far Off lands in search Of the treasure buried by the pyramids of Egypt he saw in his dreams. In my 8th grade year had all As up in till 3rd trimester. I was preoccupied with boys. In the
Alchemist, when Santiago was at the Oasis he spotted a beautiful girl that he wanted to marry. That set him off his path of his Personal Legend. “l also have Fatima, she is treasure greater than anything else won,” exclaimed Santiago. This means that he is happy with Fatima, and doesn’t really want to go to his treasure now. Did meet a boy that I liked a lot. For example, after school instead of doing my homework, would call him. Having a boyfriend did take my eyes off success in my grades. I didn’t only affect my grades, but my behavior too. I wasn’t me. I was distracted, like Santiago.
