I tried to look for a good book that will not just make me think but will also inspire me until I caught myself reading the summary of several fiction books that talk about vampires, unreciprocated love, world mysteries and love stories. I don’t think I need those cheesy stuffs as of the moment until I came across to Paulo Coehlo’s books that surely spiked up my interest. I choose books that I can surely relate to. I remembered last night as I arranged my books in my bedroom, I came across The Alchemist, Coehlo’s masterpiece. It was old and dusty, the last time I read the first part of it was years ago for a book report. I even borrowed it from my best friend. I began reading it and I am inspired by the story of the boy who is in search of his dream as all of us wants to discover our own Personal Legend.
Actually, I was caught up between 2 books to buy, one was Veronika Decides to Die and the other one was Aleph but I decided to buy the latter because it posed one strong question that just not made me think but also made me realized that this is indeed the question I have been asking to myself for months now. “Are we where we want to be, doing what we want to do?”
Now I am off to finished The Alchemist to finally read Aleph. 😉

Finally a time to make use of the first page of my Sketch Pad. Amazing!
I just want to thank God for everything that have happened this year. I guess I’ll just have a separate post with regard to all of my thanks. This post is all about me finally making use of my hands after a while. I am not really good in freehand drawing and sketching as my interest is more on drafting, making of floor plans and scribbling. My mind usually works when I do some doodles on old notebooks, random papers and tissues. I have a strong fetish on good penmanship and typography is also one of my interest especially if I test my skills in graphic design software.
2012’s top new year’s resolution is “BE CREATIVE”.
Tweet from Paolo Coehlo:
2012: Be creative. Men only learnt how to fly when they stopped imitating birds.
