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 264  |  October 20, 2007
I went on a 16-mile bike ride today: I rode from Williamsburg all the way past Battery Park and then up to Harlem. On the way, Bryant and I stopped at this memorial for the Korean War.

Iím embarrassed to admit that I didnít know much about the U.S.ís involvement when it all happened back in 1950. But Iíve since learned that itís also known as The Forgotten War, because it doesnít get as much attention as WW II, which happened right before it, or the Vietnam War, which got everyone up in arms, so to speak. But hundreds of people died in this war, including about 36,000 US soldiers. I said a silent prayer for the lives lost. Who knew my bike ride would turn out to be a history lesson?
