Obscured and unknown for the most part. In terms of social status or niche type, I never really belong or qualified to any social stereotypes (nerds, jocks, rockers, goths, skateboarders etc).
I had a small social niche. A niche where most of them are also unknown to most people outside of said niche. I was acquainted at best to a few of the popular students, but never really know them on a personal level. But I honestly never really cared much about knowing the popular kids or not. To me, they're just people regardless. All of the popular status doesn't really mean much once the high school years are over. Socially, I felt fulfilled with what I had. It was enough to give me some of the teenager, high schooler experience. It was mostly the years after college when things socially all went downhill for me. Along with sabotaging what very little I had by then.
What goes up, will inevitably come back down. Whoever you have to step on when you go up, you will be at their mercy when you go down.
The truth is strictly what the ones in power perceives it to be.
Enjoy any good things, even the little and menial ones, as you will never know what impending distresses could descend upon you in a moment.
