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 348  |  December 24, 2008

Well, here's a good life lesson in timeliness. It's recently been brought to by attention that, to cover up my perpetual lateness, I will often lie about my location in order to try to make up for lost time. For example, if I am supposed to be in Fort Lauderdale at 8 p.m. and at 7:45 I tell you I'm in Aventura, you can safely bet I'm just coming over the 195 causeway. The ploy never works.

I'm seriously re-thinking playing this game in the future as I sit in BWI on Christmas Eve and my mom calls to say she is late, but not sure how late, (as if the Nav isn't screaming it)...could be 10 miles...check that, 28 minutes...sometimes it's good to get a taste of your own medicine!
