@LB That makes sense that soy would be used primarily for non-human purposes, similar to corn. Thanks for the link!
I don't know that I'd agree with veganism being better for the planet. Taking animals out of the equation reduces greenhouse gases, yes. However, a lot of vegans get most of their protein from soy, which is being planted all over Brazil and other parts of what were formerly Amazon rainforest, so you can't discount the lost environmental benefits that come from tearing down rainforest. Not to mention the animals that are being killed in the destruction of the forest where the soy is then being planted.
Nicole, that last tag is begging for its own post.

I'm impressed that his parents are sticking to their guns. If you want to quit your job, use your own savings. You should have plenty to live on for a year given that $150k salary. Also see #9 here: http://the-toast.net/2014/04/17/lessons-learned-therapist/
@Aconite A+ comment, would read again
@garli As an owner of a few Longchamp bags, I will say they are remarkably durable. Part of the appeal is definitely the status symbol element, though once I graduated college and got over that I have continued to use them because (1) I like monochromatic, simple bags and (2) I will pay $125 (what I last paid for one, like 5 years ago) for a bag that can fit my laptop plus all my general purse contents and will last literally forever.
