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 78  |  March 29, 2008

One of these days, I'll live somewhere free of velvet ropes and VIP lists. Until then, a genius solution has been designed. My friend Megan and her boyfriend JB came to town for the weekend with a two-page spreadsheet listing every WMC party they had rsvp'd for, what promoter they e-mailed and whose names were given. So every time we went a door and our names hadn't made it to the list, JB would pull out the spreadsheet and say "Well, that's funny because you're on my list." That's what you get when a Carnegie Mellon grad really likes house music. They are two for two so far. Brilliant.

I also have to give some paparazzi props to Scottie who saw Owen Wilson outside of Taste this morning. Stars...they're just like us! Homeboy and I eat at all the same places in the neighborhood. Next thing you know, he'll be knocking at my door wanting to move in!
