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 251  |  September 18, 2008

I don't know how I feel about college football schedules being spread through the entire week nowadays. Granted, you then have the opportunity to watch more, but it kind of diminishes the luster and excitement of spending your entire Saturday in front of the TV. And if you lose on Thursday like we did, it gets your weekend off to a bad start a day early.

Though I really, really wanted to go to Boulder for the game against the university of Colorado, instead of watching at Flanagan's with Alice and Chains playing on repeat in the background, a Thursday night loss would have resulted in two subsequent days of hiking with a frown. :(
