    I agree with the first one too many people turn a blind eye to animal suffering. In fact its people who cause it.

    hmm

    1. get married I guess/have a family

    2. have my own home

    3. either make enough or have enough in savings

    so same plans as you now I guess. those were all the dreams I had as a 20something year old too. so disheartening how long it takes to achieve them...

    Why rush, theres no requirement to marry soon even if you want kids at a later age you can always adopt later in life. At 30 most people have over 50 years of life left.

    One is too many. As it stands though the vast majority of people turn are content to blind eye to it, evidenced by their consumer habits despite most people surely having seen or heard before why they should become at least vegetarians. Hopefully the times are changing though as veganism is growing rapidly. I think I will have to make it grow a great deal more rapidly to achieve my goal of bringing about world veganism by the time I'm 26 however.

    My 6 year plan

    1) Continue part time at my current job and become a team leader/manager there so in about 3/4 years
    2) Get a 1st which would be in 3 years
    3) Get a solid job in fashion editorial design post my degree, well paying and a big brand, so that would be towards becoming 26

    So not much really I'm happy right now, it's more just career goals.
