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 92  |  April 12, 2008

My friend Aundrea is visiting from New York this week and has been attempting to take kiteboarding lessons because her boyfriend is an avid rider. The lessons have been canceled every day because wind was light but she still wanted to spend the day on Key Biscayne for this big kiteboarding race. Since I equate any sport involving boards with cute boys, it didn't take much convincing.

I learned a very important lesson today...when a cute kiteboarder asks you if you kiteboard, the answer should always be yes. There's no shame in trying to learn fast or making up some excuse AFTER he has your number.
