The Happy Project Manager

Most people who know me would say I'm generally a happy guy--rather optimistic by nature. I've always been a bit skeptical about books on the subject of happiness. My concern is that they would be filled with shallow platitudes, assuming that the ultimate goal for ourselves is self-focused pleasure.

Thankfully, that bias didn't keep me from agreeing to read Michelle Gielan's new book Broadcasting Happiness: The Science of Igniting and Sustaining Positive Change.

Clips from The LEGO Movie

Honestly, this movie cracks me up. I couldn't help but put Unikitty in this episode. Who's your favorite character in the movie?
