Game of life
Next week brings a reminder that I am advancing well into the realm of "thirty-something" and with it, a certain degree of additional self-reflection. (As if I needed any more.) The focus of today’s angst is that in spite of falling into the age range of the "responsible adult," I have yet to settle on anything resembling a career path. I have a very strong sense that if I am to make something of this existence, I really need to pick a direction and start moving. So in all seriousness I’m going to ask:

What should komos be when he grows up?

NOTE: I’m aware that I haven’t included such career paths as "exploding ninja," "flesh-eating zombie," or "bandy-legged, hard-drinking pirate." Sadly, while each appeals to my appreciation for the absurd, I don’t think my prospects for success in any of these fields are very good. I also don’t think I have the assets to be a "gentleman adventurer" or a "porn star," so those are probably out, too.

whatever you love the most. i'm of the opinion that ultimately interest and self growth will win over money and status.

Oh, I know... I just thought that a semi-tongue-in-cheek poll would be entertaining.
