Watch Me Turn 30, by Holly C.
I'm a 29-year-old New Yorker who inherited this site from my pal, Holly P., to document the final year of my twenties. Right up until I turn the big 3-0 next January, I'll use this blog to indulge my inner-narcissist by voicing the good (I can date men anywhere from ages 21 to 50 without it being scandalous) the bad (I keep getting ma'amed) and the ugly (is it possible to get cellulite on your stomach?!). Here's to waving goodbye to my youth, accepting adulthood and remembering that every ending is really just a new beginning.

DAY 155  |  July 3, 2007
E may be gone, but he sure left behind a lot of stuff. Rather than bring his cast-off clothing straight to the Salvation Army or toss them in the trash, I cooked up this brilliant money-making scheme: Sell ‘em to Buffalo Exchange to get some extra cash. The idea gave me a sick sense of pleasure (note: he was just going to throw them out anyway).

Here’s how it went: I enter the store dripping with sweat after carrying E’s four bulging bags for eight blocks. The retailer tells me to look around while she sorts through the piles to decide what she wants.

Big mistake: I tore through that store like a kid opening presents on Christmas morning. When I brought my new outfits to the cash register, they rang up to $155.26. But I’m not having shopper’s remorse: With four bags of clothing, I must be getting that money back, right?

My brilliant plan turned out to not be so brilliant: Buffalo Exchange bought exactly two items for a grand total of $9.98. It must be freaking karma.
