My Scrapbook - Page Text Content

BC: Achieve your personal legend. That is what your purpose in life became the moment you were given a residence in this world.

FC: Property of Santiago

1: Early on in the adventurours era of my life, I met a wise old man who changed my world forever. He led me on to discover

2: my personal legend. He taught me some lessons that shaped my world forever. What he was I do not know. He claimed to be a helping spirit, saying he could appear in the form of even a thought just to help a soul discover his personal legend. Without this spirit, I would never have found my own legend. I now live a life of great fortune and luxury, spending most of my days traveling around Andalusia and its neighboring settlements. There I attempt to help those trying to find their own personal legend achieve success.

3: I was guided to an alchemist in an oasis village, who helped me through the final leg of my journey. He did not actually take me

4: the pyramids, but he gave me valuable help. He taught me through instant experience. I was forced into a situation where I had turn myself into the wind, or die. It was an impossible task for a normal person with a normal mindset to accomplish. But it was a stone-hard example of why pursuing your personal legend always succeeds if you stay true to your journey, Idid not fear failure, and the Soul of the World allowed me to become the wind. So in the end, the moral is that when you try to achieve your personal legend, you have no reason to fear. Everyone and everything will work to make your dreams come true.

6: It is somewhat ironic, because I rarely had to use these stones on my quest for my personal legend. I think that the king intended for me to use Urim and Thummim to learn to follow the omens, no matter how bizarre they seem. And because I chose to follow the omens, I managed to rescue a whole village and eventually find my treasure. | The stones sitting above are Urim Thummim. The old king of Salem gave me these two stones who were supposed to act like omen indicators. | It is somewhat ironic, because I rarely had to use these stones on my quest for my personal legend.

7: Above are some drawings I made to represent a certain stage that humans spend most of their life in. Most people go through their lives without

8: even beginning to follow the path of their personal legend. In fact I met a man who did not achieve his own goal. He was the owner of a china shop, but he had trouble selling his wares until I reccomended that he sell tea in the china cups, so that people would be more tempted to buy the cups. He did not wish to pursue his legend, for he feared failure like so many others. In my life, he was a good exaample of why not to give up on discovering your personal legend, because he did spend days regretting not pursuing it. There were certain times in my journey when I felt like going back to the life of a shepherd, but this event convinced me that I had to move along, or else I would regret my decision later on.

9: This is one of the gold coins that was a part of the treasure of my personal legend. | This coin is a good reminder of my success and achievemnt of fulfilling my personal legend. It is proof that I overcame all obstacles, followed the omens, and listened to my heart until my personal legend was fulfilled.

10: Objects: The coins and stones are the physical reminders of the self discovery I had when fulfilling my personal destiny. | Drawings: My sketches of various events and things important in my life that cannot fit in this book | Key Page
