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 358  |  January 22, 2008
I got an email from a 24 year-old recent college grad, and she passed on a quote from Henry David Thoreau that she tells all people who worry about aging: "None are so old as those who have outlived enthusiasm." True dat, sister!

So here’s my own personal stay-young prescription: Always make time for the people who really matter (my friends and family) because life wouldn’t be much fun without them. See as much of the world as I possibly can—it’s like a playground that God put here for us to explore. Never let a day go by without laughing, or telling someone, “I love you,” or saying thank you (because, no matter how bad it gets, there’s always something to be grateful for).

Oh, and when I’m having one of those days where I feel like I’m going to lose it, I just say f#*% it and either do something fun or go for a run—it’s better to distract myself than dwell on things I can’t change.
