[Update: A winner has been chosen! Congratulations to Michael Hayes, as chosen by Sean and Wicked Smart Kids! You can see his winning response below. Michael, we'll be contacting you with information on how to pick up/receive your passes, so please check your Destructoid private messages!]
What do you want to be when you grow up? Sean Baptiste made a list -- comedian, rapper, spy -- and he's trying it out for the world to see in a documentary series When I Grow Up. The first episode will premiere at a PAX East panel on March 13 at 12:00 PM.
Not going? Need passes? Sean Baptiste and production company Wicked Smart Kids wants to help out by offering up a three-day pass to a lucky Destructoid reader. To win, simply use the comments section of this story to tell us what you want to be (or wanted to be) when you grow up. Be as creative or honest as you want; have fun or reveal your secret dream job.
Sean and Wicked Smart Kids will choose their favorite response from the bunch, and on Monday, March 7, we will reveal the winner. Reminder: this is one set of three-day passes only; you'll have to find your own way to Boston, home of PAX East, to pick up your passes.
To get things started and to have a little fun, we have an exclusive video of Sean putting his tounge firmly in his cheek and trying to be a videogame reviewer. Enjoy!
Michael's winning entry:
I always wanted to be a video game designer. At first, I thought I wanted to be a video game programmer, but back in the 80's those were one and the same. I've been working my butt off to make games today, but it's getting more and more difficult. I managed to make it into Digipen, the new video game college, but my parents wanted me to go to their alma mater, and wouldn't pay for 'video game school'. So I wen the safe route, and I've been regretting it ever since. I'll probably spend the next ten years reversing that blunder. I have to work full time to support myself and do video games at night. Getting a free pass to pax would be invaluable to me, I'd be able to network and promote my indie games to the people who would care the most: gamers!
Jed Whitaker Haven't been around a few days. Getting over a cold and working on a review for Superbeat: Xonic on Vita. Starting to feel better, I think / hope.inspavo Solar Pony Django So I'm almost done with my first play through of Undertale and... It's okay. It's in no way bad (and I'm enjoying it more than Fallout 4 which in also playing) but feel... It was overhyped I suppose? Not sure really... Maybe a second play though will helpAgent9 Sometimes I wonder why I care. To simply have more vitriol and misery as my reward, to suffer ingrates and fools. That in all I do I'm never afforded the same respect or kindness. Let it be then, and let pain follow. I'm done with this shit. Mike Martin I was telling this dead baby joke at dinner tonight, and this lady I don't recognize says, "I'm sorry. That joke isn't funny to me, I have two dead children." At this point, I went over my options in my head and settled with telling her the joke twice. CoilWhine I really wish the slowpokes at Microsoft would add Forza Horizon to Xbox One backwards compatibility.... It's my favorite racing game. And the soundtrack is honestly flawless.Parismio Some green tea and Mario Kart w/ family is a great way to end the day.KingSigy Honestly, Broforce might be my GOTY. It's really fucking amazing.OverlordZetta Welp, Remote Play is coming to PCs. Calling it now, PS Now enabled toasters and glasses will be announced at the next big Playstation event alongside cute Vita coffins made of paper you can print out of your Remote Play capable printers.Niero Desu How did your Thanksgiving small talk with obscure relatives go? Oh, I bonded over the ethereal experience of hydrogen peroxide in ear canals but they'd never heard of Chrono Trigger so we mostly chewed the corn-flakes-on-potato thing in silenceAmna Umen Don't forget [img]http://i.imgur.com/AlijIqq.gif[/img]Mike Wallace I wonder how far the show would be taken out of context if the lyrics were "Go, Go Power Rangers, you Mighty Morphine Power Rangers."Rad Party God I just tried out Skyforge, and...

Be thankful that your lives have been blessed by the addition of a Nekro. For that is the true meaning of Thanksgiving.Solar Pony Django Happy Thanksgiving Dtoid! Here's hoping you didn't fall off a chair while hanging Christmas lights and bash your shin and foot into the concrete like I did!
