Watch Me Turn 30, by Holly C.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
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 156  |  July 4, 2007
Happy 4th of July! Last year I was hiking Peru’s Inca Trail on a quest to see Macchu Picchu and this year I went to a rooftop party to watch fireworks light up the Manhattan skyline. Standing between my Mexican-American friend, Robyn, and two Japanese guys here to learn English, I exploded into giggles before joining their chant, “USA! USA! I. LOVE. THE. USA!” Why is it that we often have to leave something behind before we are able to truly appreciate it?

Of course no Fourth of July party I’ve ever been to has gone down without a hitch, and this one was no exception: Two party-goers got stuck in the elevator and these men in uniform came to the rescue. God bless America—and New York City firefighters!
