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 76  |  March 27, 2008

Aside from all the angst and the nail-biting, last-minute loss against Xavier, the Mountaineers had quite a run this season. Making the Sweet 16 in a re-building year with a new coach is no small feat. I think Bobby Huggins' mock turtleneck has magical powers.

And, as the old Morgantown saying goes, "Win or loose, we still booze." Although nowadays, it's more like "Win or lose, we still leave the Quarterdeck at 10 p.m. to go home and go to bed." Which is also fine.

Side note: If you are a WVU alumni and visit the South Beach Quarterdeck, ask for Brent to wait on you. He lived in Morgantown for 13 years and it is great fun to call out the names of every bar and restaurant in town with him, then cheer and high-five.
