Watch Me Turn 30, by Ashley N.
Question of the year: Is spending your late 20s living on South Beach and island-hopping the Caribbean as a career a) every responsible adult's fantasy or b) totally outlandish and ultimately unfulfilling for a semi-responsible adult who still places an abnormally high priority on fun? Perhaps the mere concept of what constitutes adulthood has been distorted due to my surroundings.

Through this blog, I hope to figure out what being "almost 30" really means to me...hopefully, before the big b-day next January.

Thanks goes to Holly C. for, first and foremost, agreeing to go on one of my press trips to the 'burbs of Fort Lauderdale and ultimately passing this site along to me.

DAY -2923  |  January 10, 2000

Well, after a year of anticipation and a few weeks of planning my "unpretentious" party at the Ritz-Carlton (insert ironic laugh here), my super sweet 30 birthday bash finally happened. I'm not crying because I'm old, I'm overjoyed that I have the best friends ever who all came out to celebrate and who also, in the spirit of my grandma's 80th birthday party this summer, gave me the infamous "voicequilt" with appearances by some of my favorite guest stars in life: Hot Rod, the Rod Stewart impersonator; Jesco White, aka the "Dancing Outlaw," West Virginia's self proclaimed last mountain dancer; and the voice of the world's biggest Steelers fan, Chipped Ham Sam himself.

Thanks're the best!!! If this is what getting old is all about, bring it on!
