eighteen [] senior [] stem [] caffeine dealer supplier

low on self-esteem ]   Most people's first impression of Corey is that she's a drug dealer. This is technically correct, except she only deals in legal drugs that will under no circumstances get you arrested. Corey is the official coffee and tea supplier of the STEM kids, and basically the entire Maths faculty loves her because she always has coffee, even in class, and is more than willing to supplement their somewhat meagre supply. Alongside that, Corey is extremely skilled with computers, having grown up as the daughter of two IT professionals, one of whom designs computer programs and games for a living. But skilled with computers doesn't mean she can hack them — just rewrite programs to do what she wants or so they work better, because she's seen the coding that her dad's co-workers do, and it's pathetic.
Her family's always been pro-gay marriage and suchlike, so coming out wasn't really necessary. One day she just said 'So there's this girl that I really like, are you ok with us dating?' and they were fine with it. That was the extent of 'coming out'. Then a couple of years later, she worked out what to label herself with, and wrote 'i am a biromantic asexual female' on her wall in neon blue paint.
It's weird - Corey's always been a really artsy person, along the lines of tumblr and Fairytales for Wilde Girls. But she's a computer and maths nerd. She doesn't really fit into a box too well, and those that try to put her in one usually fail. She wants to be an architect and graphic designer, both art-oriented jobs. But graphic design requires talent with computers, and architecture, well, you don't have to be good at engineering, but it certainly helps.   [ so you run on gasoline

As you can probably tell, Ailani isn't exactly just some super smart white girl. I mean, she technically isn't even white. She's Hawaiian. She was born there and everything. Spent most of her childhood there, living in a great big house that her engineer slash architect ("I'm an urban planner mostly!!!!") of a father helped build. She surfed and studied, and life was pretty cool. Until her doctor of a mother got some offer--more like they begged her to come, but whatever--at a hospital in Cali, so Ailani and her parents moved to the LA County. They still live in a big house, and Ailani actually made friends pretty quickly. She's a nice girl, unproblematic and well, like anyone else who has ever lived in Hawaii, very relaxed.

When you're the daughter of a doctor and an engineer--someone who can save lives and someone who's been designing the new downtown look--things come easily to you. You're a fast learner and don't really rush or stress yourself over the simple stuff because you know you'll pick it up eventually. Computers listen, firewalls break down at your fingertips, and psychics makes perfect sense. So when the accident happened, things well, they fell apart. Ailani had been at the party too, having a good time. But she hadn't lived too far away from Rosemary, so she walked. And then the next day she heard about the accident and how many things went wrong, and she was shocked. Things only got worse when she met with Henry a few days later.

Henry had been the leader to the STEM kids. He was a born leader and also the smartest of them all, and yet he chose Ailani as his second. Henry had been in the accident and wound up with a broken leg. And well, Henry's parents didn't like that. Their boy was supposed to be studying to be the next genius in the family. So off to boarding school he went. And he left Ailani in charge of the STEM kids. Great. Leave the non-leader in charge.

sapphire grey | junior | STEM | second | homosexual
sapphire was born to an upper-middle class family, and really had all she could want. if she really tried, she could possibly fit in with the rich kids, though she much rather be with the STEM clique. her parents were both successful engineers, and she was expected to be one, as well. she's extremely smart, and could almost be called a genius, though like everyone, she has her flaws. she is very dedicated to the STEM kids, and they really are her only friends, though doesn't mind. her dedication and smarts has gotten her to be the second, and she holds that position with pride and responsibility.

on the side, she has a youtube channel which she also spends a good amount of time on, and it focuses on the nerdy things of life. over the years she's had it, she has racked up a good following, having nearly a hundred thousand subscribers. still, sometimes the videos are put off for school, which of course, is a worthy cause.

JAYSON"JAY"JEON ; eighteen, senior, STEM
Jay is a bit of a weird one, a bit like a jack of all trades. Y'know, if all the trades were cliques and he actually wanted to be in all of them. You see, Jay confuses a lot of people as to where and with whom he actually fits in with. He sings, so shouldn't he be in theatre? Or maybe he'd fit with the artists with that guitar he's constantly raving about. But he's been known to get in fights and not be the most alcohol free guy in the world, so delinquents?

Maybe he could get along with the troublemakers (his poor lifestyle suits it), but Jay sits himself with STEM instead. Is it the best for him? Probably not. He's great at coding, but it's clear that's not what he enjoys. It's just that... he's graduating soon and then it won't matter if he can sing or if he can play the guitar better than anyone he knows. What matters is making a living; what matters is how full his pockets are. What matters is STEM, and so that's where he'll be.

Fostering children is a good thing. Luke knows that. And he does love his foster siblings, he really does. But it doesn't take a genius to figure out that Mr. and Dr. Knightley are fostering children only because they already lost their oldest daughter. And really? Luke knows that part of them is trying to replace Sara, to act like things are okay when they're not really. To be honest, he's not really sure why they're trying to atone for Sarah's death when it wasn't anyone's fault.

At the same time, Luke lives with the weight of his sister's death. It was hard on all of them. But he's moved on, he thinks; maybe not completely, but he hasn't stopped living because of it. He has good friends at school, nice friends. He goes on dates often. He has a nice time, he does well in school. Of course he does — nothing, no amount of social life, is going to get in the way of his goal, which is, of course, to become a researching doctor and eventually find the cure to cancer. Unrealistic? Perhaps. But he's not going to give up, because even though Sarah lost her battle to cancer, that childlike idealism still lives within Luke.

Look, just because River likes to use his dick doesn't necessarily mean that he is a dick. That doesn't even make sense━ if he was just a huge penis, how would he think? Then again, it has often been argued that the only thing River thinks about is sex, but oh boy, are you in for a surprise. Sure, everyone from River's parents to the school janitor thought that River Larsson was bound to be a rich kid™. How could he not, with his mother winning the California Senate seat for her third term and his father bathing in enough wall street dough to make even the likes of Jordan Belfort jealous? But River has a habit of going against what people expect him to do. It's something he prides himself in, up there along with "having the most beautiful face in the world", "these real abs of steel", and, surprisingly enough, "contender for salutatorian of the senior class".

Listen, River is smart━ smart enough to know that with his caliber of brain and ass, he's on track to become the newer, hotter, sluttier Steve Jobs. Besides, have you seen how many runway models are currently attending Columbia University? Like hell he's gonna give up hitting on up that gold mine.

Olivia kind of terrifies everyone, and for good reason. Beneath that resting bitch face is a girl who has only gotten this far by fighting━ not in the catfight way of screaming and pulling and clawing, but in the calculated manner of the underdog-in-training who will do anything to make sure they are never taken down again. Olivia is definitely some sort of borderline genius, sure, but talent is a very fickle thing. Olivia knows this better than anyone: to trust no one's so-called intellect, especially not her own. If you truly want to achieve, you better be ready to work your ass off. Kiss sleep good-bye and say hello to working into the red mornings with furious exhaustion. As ambition blurred its way into pride, the workaholic mindset became nothing but mindless repetition. Memorize. Code. Solve. Repeat, repeat, repeat. Soon, everyone who ever told her that she could not, would not, should not succeed will be forced to confront this smartass eighteen year old with a scary face and see just how wrong they were. You see, just because Olivia often acts like a coldhearted bitch (and comes from that part of town) doesn't mean she lacks moral capacity. Olivia's greatest virtue (and vice) comes from her unending loyalty: to ambition, yes, but also, to people. She admits that she often wants to fight everyone and everything, but she ultimately wants to fight not in order to win, but to protect. After all, if Olivia can barely keep her sanity after losing a test point, she can hardly fathom what might happen if she lost something━ or someone━ that actually matters.

[ xvii × senior × stem kid ]

[ l ] ook, all Jackie wants is to be a in a situation that calls for her spinning away from her laptop with a serious expression and saying intensely, "I'm in." Not that she doesn't do that anyways, when she's in the mood. But it sure as hell would be nice to at least get paid for it. But nooo. Instead, she helps grandmas set up their Macs (which isn't so bad; sometimes they bring cookies) and gets viruses off teenage boys laptops (which is annoying, because (a) she deals with enough teen boys in school and (b) they probably got those viruses by watching porn) at Best Buy. The things she does for a little extra cash, goddamn.

It might seem like Jackie's got things at least mostly figured out. She's got a passion, a job, and a place at school. But have you seen how much coffee and Red Bull this girl ingests? Have you ever tried asking her about her college plans? Who knows how Jackie actually keeps her grades in the solid A-B range, when she usually completes study guides and essays the class before they're due. Doing homework is way boring compared to hacking into the school website and changing all the teachers names to food items and their pictures to rare pepes.

There's always someone telling Jackie to grow up, be more mature, assume responsibility. And it's not like Jackie means to appear so immature. How bad is it that she just wants to have a little fun while she's still young? What's wrong with sitting on the beach at 2 AM just for the hell of it, or sending your friends increasingly ridiculous memes in the middle of a particularly boring lecture, just to try to get them to laugh? If "growing up" means losing that spontaneity and freedom, then Jackie isn't going to start early, the way everyone else seems to want her to.
