not a beautiful or unique snowflake
nothings

An implicit-social-class meme that has started going around on my friends list, no idea where it started.


Father went to college
Father finished college
Mother went to college
Mother finished college
Have any relative who is an attorney, physician, or professor.

Were the same or higher class than your high school teachers (The whole point of this quiz seems to be about measuring factors that are indicators of class, so it seems crazy to require you to explicitly know your class, so I'm discounting it.)
Had more than 50 books in your childhood home
Had more than 500 books in your childhood home (probably)
Were read children's books by a parent (I assume so but I don't remember)
Had lessons of any kind before you turned 18
Had more than two kinds of lessons before you turned 18
The people in the media who dress and talk like me are portrayed positively (far too subjective to be reasonably judged)
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

Went to summer camp
Family vacations involved staying at hotels (no, most of them involved staying at the family's vacation home, which is presumably even MORE indicative)
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 (whoever wrote this grew up before the age of cell phones, eh?)
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

Participated in an SAT/ACT prep course (no, I participated in AP classes though, which maybe should be on this list too)
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 (I dunno, maybe? I grew up outside Washington DC, where the museums and galleries are free. We went there so many times on school field trips that I have no idea anymore. But, they were free, so I dunno it's applicable anyway.)
You were unaware of how much heating bills were for your family
