My favourite excerpt is the excerpt about the last lecture. I picked the story about Randy as it shows how he can cope with life knowing that he had limited time left to live. It also shows a good personal recount. It shows how he planned for the presentation (lecture), which is also how we should go about planning our presentations. Like him, we can get inspirations and then carry out the planning of the presentation.
As for the phrase / word in the story that I like, it is "an engineering problem". I chose the phrase as it shows me a new way to phrase "I am going to die soon". I also want to use it for my composition.
The word is "workaholic". To me, it is a funny way to phrase "a mad person who likes to do nothing but work"

When I experienced a unexpected success, it was when I decided to sign up for an art competition in the science spy competition. To begin with, I did not really put in alot of effort in the competition. But when the next issue of the science spy magazine came out, I found out that my drawing had been published! Yep, thats my unexpected success.
