What is the difference between a middle and working class lifestyle in America?

I am a senior in high school and live with a middle class family. My dad is a software engineer and my mom is an investment banker so I live pretty good. My parents want me to get a proffesional job like a doctor but I want to be a truck driver. They said if I get a labor job I will have financial problems. But all I wanna do in life outside of work is watch tv and movies, eat, play basketball, play video games, have internet and maybe travel to a different country once a year. And I dont plan on having kids. Can I do those things if I get a blue collar job?
