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 65  |  March 16, 2008

If I had a dollar for every time someone told me they don’t want to raise their kids in Miami, I wouldn’t exactly be rich, but I’d probably have a few more pairs of expensive shoes, at the very least. Today I found out why first hand.

I was laying out at Jackie’s pool, in her very quiet, waterfront residential neighborhood, when we notice the 40-ish couple in the bottom right of this picture getting a little R-rated in the pool…with a five-year-old little girl staring intently. (The man in question was wearing Speedos which may help you visualize the disturbing scene a bit more clearly.) The little girl’s mom, who was getting a bit concerned about exposing her daughter to soft core porn, asked them nicely to knock it off, to which the little girl asked, “Mommy, what are they going to do NEXT?” Kids today…
