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 269  |  October 25, 2007
The girls and I already wrote the book proposal this summer, but we kind of hit a wall because finding jobs, apartments and ourselves back in New York City took more time and energy than wed allotted. But Im holing up tonight to finish the final piece we need before we can shop it around to publishing houses: My sample chapter.

And every time I get stuck, I turn to my idol, Elizabeth Gilbert, whose book Eat Pray Love helped inspire me to go on my own kind of traveling pilgrimage. Her writing is spiritual and smart but still reads real. Maybe in my next lifetime Ill be able to craft a memoir as beautiful as hers.
