So, we’re drinking beers and my boyfriend’s got the whole party hanging onto his every word with a story about the one time he was road tripping across America with 12 of his mates.

My brain is reeling: must. interject. with. hilarious. comment. to. show. how. awesome. I. am. and. that. he. made. good. choices. being. with. me.

Of course, my mind is blank. The brain bank is in the red and I’m running out of time.

All of a sudden, the connection from my brain to my mouth malfunctions and I start talking:

It kind of reminds me of the time I was at university and joined an all girl acapella group. Ah, good times.

*The party looks at me and collectively thinks*

Ummmm, that’s Pitch Perfect, you loser. 

I don’t always have the funniest story.

I don’t always land the punch line.

I don’t always have the wittiest comment.

But I do have a sense of self-importance known only to my generation which gives me the balls to share it with you, all over the internet. 

 

THE 30-SOMETHINGS

Forget about a recipe for success. There's. No. Such. Thing. At least, that's what Elizabeth McKenzie – lover of boys, jump-starter of her own career, and all-around average woman – has discovered. This is her coming-of-age story. The one where she transforms into the loud-mouthed, semi-successful, semi-hot, self-important adult she is today.

The 30-Somethings is a collection of stories and thoughts broken down into three acts*: babes, bods and business. You'll laugh out loud as Elizabeth exposes the phenomenon of the internet #ladyboss, throws down tips on how to make boys think you're hot (even if your body is shaped like a fruit #nojudgement) and reveals the romantic fairytale of eye-banging her boyfriend for the first time.

Part memoir, part self-help guide, The 30 Somethings is all honesty.

* Suitable for those with very short attention spans.

"With the help of self-publishing, it's never been easier for an amateur like Elizabeth to pitch herself as the voice of a generation and attempt to impart lessons onto an unwilling world." Elizabeth's best friend, Yen
