So in the ramble meme, [profile] engarian asked for:

I'm curious about what you (and Bobby) see as your goals for the next few years of your life, looking ahead from the perspective of your youth.

So to celebrate the first day of the former part, I am once again posting about vegetarianism to commemorate sixteen meat-free years.
