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 58  |  March 9, 2008

March in South Florida inevitably means one thing: SPRING BREAK! In an effort to relive some of the hazy memories of Cancuns and Panama Cities past, I drug myself out of bed at 9 a.m. to check out an MTV Spring Break taping with my friends MH, Dmitry and Patrick. I definitely have fond childhood memories of seeing the Daytona Beach episodes and hoping maybe one day I would be able to drink excessively, get too much sun and dance around on camera.

Apparently, this debauchery is much too tame for today’s viewers so, instead, we were treated to “Kings & Queens,” some bisexual game show hosted by MySpace “celebrity” Tila Tequila. The couples competing against one another were obviously hired actors and I guarantee that the majority of people in the audience had never even stepped foot on a college campus…not even to pick up friends. About 30 minutes into the show, we were all in need of some actual tequila, so we bounced to grab margaritas at a Mexican restaurant across the street.

So much for my attempt to relive the glory days. I would have rather been at yoga. Whatever happened to MTV shows like “Remote Control” where your knowledge of good old useless trivia held more credence than agreeing to an on-camera threesome? Colin Quinn, the future on television depends on you - come back!
