Will you have student debt?

Do your parents give you loads of money?

Will they help you get a house in the future?

If you don't do well off of your own work in life will they support you financially?

Nah, i think Chelsea will take it this year. Giroud's on good form though, if we can spend more on defence this January then we'll have a better chance. Wenger needs to stop trying to find finding 'potential' and actually sign some top players. We've got the money to do it. I would love to see a top defender joining the team.

Yes
Not really, I have a nice laptop and I don't need a part time job so I'm happy. I don't spend much on clothes or brand names.
Yes, they will help towards the deposit but it's up to me to make mortgage payments
No, but I think I will get a good job. My dad can get me a place in accounting but right now I'm more interested in a different career, which I will work towards myself.

How many trips did you have a year growing up? Why didn't you go private? What was your neighbourhood like growing up?

Grew up upper-mid too, fun times.

We had one holiday a year. Usually Portugal, Greece, went to the US and Singapore as well once.
I live in London. It's quite nice and has good schools. It's not a huge house compared to what you could get in the US or Scotland for the same money but for London it's better than average.
My parents chose to have us educated at grammar schools because it was cheaper. I have two siblings as well so it would be quite expensive to go private.

How do you see lower-class people aka people living in council flats and hustling on the streets?
Do you feel like your life has been served to you on a plate?
Do you ever make friends with people who are lower-classed (i.e. people living on benefits)
Have you ever been in a fight?

Fair play.

You're trying to get on the IB treadmill too right?

I don't mind them. They're okay, some are good people, some are bad just like with any other group.
No, I don't think it has.
No, my school is very much middle class and upper middle class. There were a few people on benefits but I didn't happen to be friends with them. We just didn't share any interests I guess.
No
