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 22  |  February 2, 2008
Tonight, I convinced my friends to go to the “Gazillionaire’s Late Night Lounge” portion of Spiegelworld, a crazy burlesque circus of sorts. If you get your kicks from acrobats in casts, drum circles, disco balls and hearing a slimy, gold-toothed ring leader work the crowd by yelling “Tickle My Balls!” this is the show for you. Honestly, some people probably write it off as raunchy, but I really admire the talent it takes to create something that is so inappropriately absurd yet culturally stimulating in a weird way. Side note: My stylist Levi did a kick ass job on my new haircut today! Yes, it's a blatant copy of Paris Hilton's latest do, but now that I'm 29, I'm mature enough to admit that. Imitation may be the most sincere form of flattery, but in this case, the buck stops with the me.
