In my experience the nerdier crowd has either turned out very successful or wildly unsuccessful and the exact same goes for the cool kid assholes (who I tended to be associated with at the time), 2.1 gpa high school douchbags turn into millionaire bankers just as often as high school summa cum laude full academic scholarship to Ivy League kids turn into drop outs...I've always tried to maintain bridges with both crowds because who knows who the fuck you're gonna work with

I wasn't picked on or bullied but always excluded from things because I'm always the nerdy, know it all with glasses. Doesn't help that I like sports but too short and too scrawny. I would play hard and try my best but I'm average at best so given my unpopular standing and unsporting physical appearance I'm always last to be picked for teams.

So years later to now, we have these cool people being:
- several insurance / real estate agents (these two guys reached out for coffee not too long ago because they came across my IG and noticed I'm constantly travelling and thought I probably can afford insurance or buy a house from them)
- FedEx warehouse handler
- many retail workers and living with parents (but one now owns a frozen yogurt franchise so good on him)
- career waitress (we were ok friends but more like she wanted help on homework more than anything)
- stripper (this girl not only turned me down for high school dance but made it a point to tell everyone I asked and everyone in my grade laughed at me for the next 3 months)

When I was an exchange student in the Netherlands in high school, I had a crush on this cute guy. I was back in the Netherlands for client work in 2009 and he happened to be a bell boy at the Marriott I stayed in.
