Right now my retirement accts look like this:

33% Large cap
30% Small Cap
10% Mid cap
13% Overseas/Foriegn investments

My time line is 30 years or so and I don't mind taking on risk (obviously) The way I have it set up is about 55% is in index funds and 45% is in activly managed funds with a good blend of Growth and Value. I'd like to eventually diversify into bonds, REITs, and a little more individual stocks but right now I feel like Bonds and REITs are a little high and given my time horizon I feel I can wait 3-7 years for things to "calm down".

Anyone care to comment? Am I taking on way too much risk? On one hand I feel like I might be, but on the other hand I don't want to diversify for difersity sake, buying into an asset class I feel is over-priced.
