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 352  |  January 16, 2008
If today were a word, it would be “bliss.” The esthetician looked at me like I was nuts when I asked her to snap a photo of me post-facial, but I wanted to remember how I spent the dwindling days of my twenties being pampered.

I also tried an Ayurvedic massage. Ayurveda is an age-old Indian practice that translates to “the science of life.” The philosophy is all about maintaining balance of mind, body and spirit through diet, exercise and lifestyle practices that balance your dosha, or temperament. There are three doshas: Vata (air), Pitta (fire) and Kapha (earth and water).

According to the spa therapist, I’m mostly air (which basically means I have a restless mind and like to be in motion) with a lot of fire (think: passionate with an enormous appetite). Um, that sounds about right. So how do I keep from being such a spaz, er, keep grounded? By incorporating more earth/water elements into my life, such as surrounding myself with calm people, sticking to a schedule, and doing soothing exercises like yoga postures instead of those long runs that really rev me up.
