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 199  |  July 28, 2008

Although college football season is still four weeks away, my excitment for its kickoff has already been deflated. UF has knocked off WVU as Princeton Review's #1 party school. This is a) a total conspiracy and b) the worst day of my life. Upon finding out, I immediately contacted the biggest Gator shit-talkers I know to express my dissent. (If you didn't hear from me, don't bring it up. There will be serious reprecussions.) Then I went home, put on my team gear and contemplated chugging all of the leftover beer from my July 4 party in an attempt to redeem my beloved alma mater.

But since my A/C was finally fixed, and because I'm not 19 anymore, I instead watched Karate Kid and passed out on the couch at 9 p.m. How's that for a top-notch partier?
