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 45  |  February 25, 2008

I’m inventing a new hybrid sport: Bikram Soccer. The opposing team didn’t show up for my indoor soccer game tonight so management tried to smoke us out by not turning on the A/C…even though it was a record high of 87 or something ridiculous.

I don’t have a picture of our “game” because my team decided just to stick around and play against each other…no substitutions. It was by far the hardest game of the season. If you’ve ever seen the movie Beerfest, my team is to coed indoor recreational soccer as the German beer drinking team was to, well competitive beer drinking. And trust me, I am far from the MVP in either of those sports.
