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 216  |  August 14, 2008

My grandma's 80th b-day bash, I mean brunch, is in a few weeks and so today I made my submission to her gift. The "Voice Quilt" is basically a cleverly-marketed message machine where everyone calls in to leave a "memory" then the audio is put into a jewelry box so that, every time you open the lid, you hear something like "Well hello there Minnie. Happy 80th from Dick, the only brother you have left on God's green earth.

I, of course, had to wait to be the last person to record so that I could ensure my submission was better than everyone else's. I hope my grandma appreciates the gift...rumor out of West Virginia has it that she could care less about her birthday. She is more interested in planning a trip to Miami for my 30th because she heard there will be celebrities there. Ha!
