☆  lifestyle  ライフスタイル


Your lifestyle is the living conditions, behaviors, and habits that you typically choose. Back in the late 1980’s and 1990’s there was an American TV show called, “Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous.” The TV show featured the extravagant lifestyles of wealthy actors, athletes, and business multimillionaires.

I guess this was one of the first “reality TV” style shows. Was that ever on TV in Japan? Did you watch it? Would you be interested in watching a TV show about the lifestyle of someone rich and famous? How would it make you feel? Would you feel jealous that your lifestyle was not as extravagant or would you feel more content with your own lifestyle as you didn’t have all that extra worry about being famous?
