la belle et le desk job

"The hardest period in life is one’s 20s. It’s a shame because you’re your most gorgeous and you’re physically in peak condition, but it’s actually when you’re most insecure and full of self-doubt. When you don’t know what’s going to happen, it’s frightening."
-Helen Mirren
