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 47  |  February 27, 2008

While I was in Fort Lauderdale today promoting an American Heart Association charity event I planned for one of my clients, my friend Holly was back in Miami wooing the higher-ups at Nikki Beach. They are looking for a PR firm to rep their new hotel line and Iím so super-stoked at the thought of potentially working for them. Since Nikki Beach has such a swank, international image, we decided that whoever has the biggest sunglasses gets to work on the account. I was the clear winner. If anyone disagrees, Iím challenging them to a dance-off.

My new phone came in the mail yesterday. Itís defective and doesnít take any incoming calls. I officially have a really high-tech pager. Middle school style.

Even though it was a record high temp yesterday, itís supposed to get into the 40s tonight. Itís my favorite weather because people tend to break out the last cold weather gear they bought before moving to Florida. This often involves bomber jackets and various types of acid wash, which equals hours of entertainment.
