Short term - I can't believe I'm saying this, but... Get pregnant with #2. And start studying towards my second degree.
Medium term - get a bigger house, stabilize our financial position once we're done having babies (stopping at 2). Keep up the study.
Long term - complete my degree and do a masters at the end of it. Start a whole new career!
And in amongst all that, try to be a really good mummy and have a happy family

Update from me too:
Short term - I'm almost 11wks pregnant, yay! Took 3 rounds of IVF but we got there. Have also completed 2 subjects at uni.
Medium - finances are pretty stable at the moment and I should be able to comfortably take a decent amount of time for mat leave. We've looked at options for our next house and are refining our plans.
Long term - TBC!

Other than that, I've achieved very little of the above.
Short term - Lose that 25kgs, get more job security, launch my business, get divorced, find a man, start playing netball again.
Mid term - Keep the weight off and tone up, get my business to a point where I can hire office space and stop my day job, buy a fast car, travel to either Rio for the Olympics, or Lebanon, find a 50/50 shared care solution that works for my kids.
Long term - Get my business to a point where I can step back and enjoy the fruits of my labours, travel a lot, get married again and maybe have another kid, study for pleasure, build my dream home.
