“When will you die?”

I’ve just been checking out my death clock and apparently I’m going to die at some point between 2038 and 2046, the clock can't really decide on that. This is however if I put myself in as ‘pessimistic’ and not ‘normal’, because then I’m going to die in 2061. But how do you know if your mood is normal? And what if you’re generally pessimistic, but expect to get rid of it at some point? Does that count as optimism? What is optimism anyway? Is it a firm belief that things will get better or does hope count too? Because surely it’s possible to be pessimistic and hopeful at the same time, right? Or is that just what normal is?
