Cale Post to the Blog Again!

I have been trying to figure out what I want to be when I grow up. I will be pushing thirty when I get back to the states, I thought it would be good to know. But how can I mine the depths of my consciousness in order to determine what particular trade I will enjoy?

I'll tell you how. I will use the “What kind of movies do I like” method.

It's brilliant.

I look for similarities in things that I like to watch in movies, and then I do that.

See? Brilliant.

I like movies like National Treasure, Tomb Raider, or Indiana Jones — if you are old.
I like movies like The Italian Job, The Money Train, or Heat — if you are old.

So here is what I am going to do. I am going to become a professional thief of historical artifacts.

What could be more entertaining!

Know anybody with an original Louis XIV desk? Know any body that wants one? I can help!

I wonder what the market is like for a globetrotting thief of old furniture?

Dismal?

Damn.

Hey Cale...it is great to keep your options open about what you want to be when you grow up since the world seems to want to make us flexible about it. People have to reinvent themselves all the time, especially now to stay employed. So, the sky can still be the limit for a bright guy like you. But, maybe be the expert on catching robbers of historical artifacts, rather than the robber??
