This outlines just why I don't aspire for the peerage. I don't want my hobby to become a job! I like helping out but also want the luxury of stepping away when things get too much. And that's fine.

You've nailed it.

I've got it made. Got the officers' warrants I need to do the fun stuff, and can be a totally lazy bugger when I'm not doing those. My current fighting prowess is somewhere below "Larper on Quaaludes", and I'm about as artsy as the beer-swilling stick jock that I used to be. I've already got about as many cookies as I would want or could aspire to, so I can just kick back and do what I think is fun. Keeps me under the Peerage Radar, so to speak.

It isn't so much 'aspiring' for a peerage as just one day getting it due to what you've been doing as a matter of course. Do what you love to do, for the sake of that joy, and don't worry about striving towards an (award) goal. Unless your goal is to get better at what you are loving to do. :)
