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 305  |  November 11, 2008

This week, some of us in the office were off on a "Road Trip" to take journalists to visit multiple hotels. Though Tom Green didn't eat any mice on this one, there was enough comedy to go around. Especially when the group of writers I took to a fine establishment called "Gator Club" tipped the bandleader to announce that "Ashley Rocks" during a break between songs. And when one guy in my group from Mexico City kept addressing the guy from Brooklyn as "You F'N Chinese Girl" and asking me what the "C" word was.

And this guy. Hope he didn't break a hip.
