    I think the issue of social class division pops up absolutely everywhere – dating, in the workplace, making friends, even things as mundane as where you do your grocery shopping. It’s quite fascinating and I don’t think we realise how influential it can be – whole TV shows are based around it, Gossip Girl for instance. Or maybe we do realise it, but don’t want to admit it to ourselves because that means admitting to a certain degree of jealousy. Interesting read!

      I think we don’t like admitting social class. I guess because of jealousy and also the idea of being put in a box that may seem smaller than others. But we also have so much fascination for what other people have and how they’re living. I use to love watching Gossip Girl, I wonder when a similar show will come about. x
