Sandara Park in Manila for Penshoppe

Sometimes I wonder why I work in PR. Anxiety, self-doubt, and the temptation to just (╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻ set in whenever I get stressed more stressed than usual, and that happens a lot.

Holy sheet of paper.
I AM TURNING 30 IN 30 DAYS!
I had a brief moment of panic yesterday when I realized that my birthday is fast approaching, but I calmed down when I reminded myself that worrying is futile and that whether I was willing to welcome it with open arms or …
