    During which upon return

    How do you translate this sentence? I’m wrestling with how it should be translated, and I may be missing a comma. My understanding is after your return, during that time, the happiness hormones continue to be secreted. Are we on the same page?

    This is a “simpler” clip, especially compared to yesterday’s quiz. Less than 200 words per minute is a refresh. And 4 of the 23 words are numbers. So, there’s that!

    And that is something that’s going to secrete my happiness hormones. Then again, how can we improve without those super fast clips?
