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.

the camp was a time to foster closer relationships between sst students. my favourite part was the rock climbing, as i liked climbing stuff. but we did lots of other stuff. but the one thing that ruined the camp was the rain, cuz it made the whole place muddy, making the night hike there even worse... cause we had to walk in alot of sticky mud, but that activity definitely made us learn to trust in other people, because in the dark, you will not know about what is ahead of you and will have to trust other people's words in order not to trip over logs, step into mud, and other stuff. but all in all, the camp was ok i would say :) well this is the end of the reflection, as this is gonna be very long if i have to tell the entire camp story...

ok today we had an amazing race. then again, not really much of a race actually, cuz thru the whole thing we ended up walking. but we walked ALOT! But the bad thing about wearing long pants is that it will be very, very HOT!!!!! But we got to relax soon enough during the break at mcdonalds. all in all, a wonderful day :) but still very hot :(

How do I begin? Ah, yes today we have spent most of our day on the bridge building activity. It was a long day, but we had alot of fun! The activity fosters teamwork, cooperation and alot of planning. At first, we had the luxury of sittin' back and planning how to go about on our little project. Then, we had to get to work. Serious work. My team built a draw bridge, and though the tape we used to make it actually messed up, the overall product was great! All in all, it was a fun day.
