Transcript of The Alchemist

Text to Text
The book I chose as my text to text connection is the book "The Pursuit of Happ
ness", by Chris Gardner. This book is a true story about how a man invests the family savings in bone-density scanners, he thinks that they are going to sell very fast and he's going to get a lot of money from them but then realizes that no one really needs them. He then decides that he wants to get one of the best paying jobs a stockbroker, he gets internship position that at the end of a six-month unpaid training period he will take a test and the one person with the highest mark will get the position, he then becomes broke and his wife leaves him. He still has to provide for his son but he doesn't have money. They end up staying countless nights at a homeless shelter but Chris doesn't give up he keeps trying and in the end he gets the job and is now a rich man.

Text to Self
My text to self connection is becoming a nurse. This relates to The alchemist because some of my relatives say I can't do it, or that I should do something better with my life but that is what i want to do so i am going to stick with it, believe in my dream and i am not going to let them stop we from doing what i want to do. Just like how Santiago's parents told him not to become a shepherd and to do something else.
How this relates to the Alchemist?
Text to World
For my text to world i chose the song " The Climb" by Miley Cyrus.
How this relates to the Alchemist?
