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 130  |  May 20, 2008

My BFF Carrie (center) finally made it back to the States after a long, arduous season running a yacht in St. Maarten with her fiance. Apparently, Katie (right) and I thought no activity would mark her return better than some good-old, balls-out weeknight debauchery sponsored by our close pal vino. I haven't had a night like this since I was young enough for it to still be acceptable.

We successfully offended everyone within Fort Lauderdale city limits and also managed to be denied admittance to the seediest dive bar downtown, drunk dial multiple exes to spread the news of Carrie's engagement and pay for a cab in quarters. I know all these things happened because I read about them on Facebook. Mission accomplished!
