Good to see you putting in work on your objectives, Ken. Eye on the prize! Back when I taught B2, I used an article thrown together by one of your compatriots at the BBC. She claims that happiness is U-shaped along the course of a lifetime: flying high during youth, bottoming out in middle-age, and then rebounding in old age. Apparently, this pattern this holds true for people in over 70 different countries! Here’s a link to the article: http://www.bbc.com/news/magazine-20591893 If reading isn’t your cup of tea, you can always watch a TED talk by the same author: http://www.ted.com/talks/tali_sharot_the_optimism_bias?language=en Keep up the good work and sally forth and all that.
