"He was going to miss the place and all the good things he had learned" (pg. 65)

This is a picture of my dog sugar. He ran away about 3 years ago, he was my bestfriend and was always there by my side. It was really hard for me to let him go and accept the fact that he most likely won't be returning back home. I loved him so much and was always excited to wake up in the morning next to him, we had so many fun memories together. There's not a day that goes by where I don't miss him.

"Most people see the world as a threatening place, and because they do the world turns out, indeed to be a threatening place" (pg. 135) During my freshman year I was on the cheer team as a flyer. Flying was very scary and dangerous, I was always told to not have the fear of falling and to always have trust in my bases and back spots to catch me. Throughout the year of cheer I have learned my lesson to not have a fear or the thought of falling since I've done it several times before and it had led me to several small injuries. All in all my tip/advice to a new upcoming flyer is to not have a fear of falling or slipping and to just have trust and positive thoughts. The sky is also a very nice view while you're in the air so maybe you could distract yourself from the thought of fear

"One afternoon on a visit to his family he has summoned up the courage to tell his father that he didn't want to become a priest. He wanted to travel" (pg. 11)

My dream in life was to travel around the world with love ones like family and friends! In 8th grade I was so fortunate to travel to Washington D.C, New York, and Boston with my bestfriends. At first my mom couldn't afford the trip fee, so I made myself a goal to fundraise as much as I could to be able to help my mom out with the cost. I was finally able to fully earn enough money for the trip and was super duper excited that I was able to share this amazing experience with my closest friends. I was able to see the statue of liberty and the beautiful architecture in New York. As I grow older I can't wait to further my dream in traveling and hopefully I'd be able to do it again with my best friends.
"You will never be able to escape your heart. So it's better to listen to what it has to say" (pg. 134) I'm relating this quote to driving because while you're on the road, you really need to focus and pay attention and do what your mind/heart tells you to do. You would also have to let the universe guide you from getting to your destination, for example in this case the pavements/roads would be how the universe can guide you. Driving can be a huge responsibility in our lives and we should always put trust in ourselves that we would be obeying all the laws in order to keep everyone else on the road safe including ourselves.
"There is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve; the fear of failure" (pg. 146) MY dream in life is to be able to have a good future and to buy myself sporty cars like BMW's. I'm very determined to get good grades in high school to be able to set myself up for a good future. I've always had a love for sporty cars or any high class cars ever since I was a youngling. I'm going to try my best to achieve this goal before I die, like how Santiago finally found out where his treasure was. He believed in himself and pushed himself until he found out.
