Andy Told Me To

So, first things first, you should understand that I lived in a single-income household of seven (middle baby, what what) and also think there was a lot of fluctuation in where my family falls. That and the fact that my Dad didn’t really make his business our business, there could potentially be some wild gradient in the perceptions of my siblings and myself. Keep in mind. I’ve proven to have a way better memory! Hah!

Father went to college
Father finished college
Mother went to college – I don’t really know this for true. Supposedly, she started going to a city college for a minute.
Mother finished college
Have any relative who is an attorney, physician, or professor. – I don’t know if I can bold this because (a) I don’t know large factions of my blood-determined family and (b) I don’t know if they’re trying to gage your surroundings and therefore can count god-family. In which case, yes.
Were the same or higher class than your high school teachers – I guess?
Had more than 50 books in your childhood home – Between teaching materials, our own book collections … that’s probably over a hundred right there. We were really into buying entire book series. Jennifer. Hahaha.
Had more than 500 books in your childhood home
Were read children’s books by a parent
Had lessons of any kind before you turned 18
Had more than two kinds of lessons before you turned 18
Even omitting my father’s random tennis outbursts!
The people in the media who dress and talk like me are portrayed positively
Had a credit card with your name on it before you turned 18
Your parents (or a trust) paid for the majority of your college costs*
Your parents (or a trust) paid for all of your college costs*
Went to a private high school – No need. Went from private schools to an IB high school. Absolutely no regrets, my friend.
Went to summer camp
Had a private tutor before you turned 18
Family vacations involved staying at hotels – Did I mention we were a household of seven?
Your clothing was all bought new before you turned 18
Your parents bought you a car that was not a hand-me-down from them
There was original art in your house when you were a child
Had a phone in your room before you turned 18 – I think senior year of high school. Mostly because Dad was constantly restricting the boys from its use, he put it in my room and he had his line.
You and your family lived in a single family house
Your parent(s) owned their own house or apartment before you left home
You had your own room as a child – When we moved to Regatta in junior high. Actually, at one point Ana and I swapped rooms at Danville but. Jen and I were kinda like twins and that didn’t last. I moved back in with her pretty quickly.
Participated in an SAT/ACT prep course
Had your own TV in your room in High School
Owned a mutual fund or IRA in High School or College
Flew anywhere on a commercial airline before you turned 16
Went on a cruise with your family
Went on more than one cruise with your family
Your parents took you to museums and art galleries as you grew up – And more arbitrary places like cathedrals. We weren’t catholic.
You were unaware of how much heating bills were for your family – I don’t think that means anything though because what kid knows that??

So. Who knows. The biggest indicator is probably that we primarily went to private school growing up. What can I say? Daddy made it do what it do.

I think I was supposed to explain the point of this thing but you can just click on Andy’s link and go read his explanation, yo.
