You are pretty young so C should work well. I currently have 75% go to C, 15% go to S and 10% go to I. I have some funds in F but I am not adding to them, actually I will be slowly moving money in the F Fund into the other funds. Any mix of C, S and I will work but I would suggest mostly C and some S. Fund I has a pretty poor history but it just seems reasonable that foreign stocks will go up someday and you have enough time to find out but you don't need much there as most large US firms have significant foreign operations.
The big question for me is how to best use the F fund. I am 51 and I expect to retire in 5 or 6 years but may not draw out funds for a few years after that. I cannot figure how much, if anything, to hold in F and when to move funds into F or G as I get older to minimize volitity.
But at 36 go mostly with C and add whatever you feel in S and I as a little speculative spice.
