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 299  |  November 5, 2008

In the words of Bob Dylan, the times, they are a changin'. I actually find it rather fitting that this whole attitude of change sweeping the nation would happen at this particular point in my life. With less than 70 (yikes) days left til 30, I realized that I have spent the last five years of my life trying to change things and stressing out when they didn't work out...yet all of a sudden, when I finally began to live the standard of "it is what it is" things began automatically changing for the better. It's starting to seem like saying good bye to my 20s might not a depressing occassion as I once perceived...

Editor's note: I would however, like to change the fact that I missed out on Mary Helen's cookie/whipped cream/fresh fruit "Victory Cake" at the election viewing party. Just for the record.
