    so if she had written about being in the working class in the diary then I'd get it.

    •  The job I wrote about... (0+ / 0-)

      was hourly and by no means required my graduate degree. It was in my field, yes... but I was working a regular office job like most of the working class people I know, making about the same...

      So I'm not sure why there's a problem.

      •  Because that description of the job you (0+ / 0-)

        wrote about wasn't part of the diary so I couldn't follow that, which is why when I got to the end the tags didn't make sense to me and was why I commented.

        I know see that there's more to what you mean than the words that you wrote, so I'm glad I asked, because the connection wasn't clear just from reading the text.

        thanks.
