There are so many stories out there about young adults having a quarter-life crisis, but what no one talks about is the thirty-life crisis – that time in your life when adulthood instantly starts to become real and everything begins to change. Lisa Schwartz is a Los Angeles native, actress, and YouTube sensation who knows this all too well – her channel Lisbug has over 2.2 million subscribers. Her most popular video, a parody of Taylor Swift’s Shake It Off generated 19 million views!!
Her upcoming book, THIRTY-LIFE CRISIS: Navigating My Thirties, One Drunk Baby Shower at a Time (on-sale August 27) is a collection of comedic personal essays in which she shares stories and musings about being an ambitious, modern day woman in her thirties. Unabashed and unfiltered, Lisa takes readers on a raw and candid journey through her own life experiences reminding us that no one – at any age – has their life completely figured out, even if it looks like they do on social media.
Follow Lisa as she figures out:
- The difference between breakups in your twenties v. breakups in your thirties
- The power of being bossy
- The importance of self-care
- Gender reveal parties, the wedding circuit, and much, much more
Including a foreword by fellow YouTuber (and Lisa’s former boyfriend) Shane Dawson, THIRTY-LIFE CRISIS is a reminder that we are so not alone in our journey to figure out who we are, what we want, and how to get there. Here’s one of my favorite quotes from the book!
“Surround yourself with people who accept you for you and puppies who lick you when you’re down. Go to therapy, create your boundaries, say no to gender-reveal parties. Replace judgment with curiosity, ask for help, set your Tinder standards high, wear your favorite overalls, leave the filters off, watch reruns of Seinfeld. Have your heart broken, eat French fries, and open your heart back up.”
This is a book for anyone ready to pour themselves a glass of wine, stop comparing themselves to everyone else, and enjoy the bizarre ride that is life.
