look up any word, like ethered:
The kid with the highest GPA in high school. Stereotypically spends all free time doing homework, studying, and not having friends. Occasionally will actually be a raw-ass kid who wings every test, turns in homework 2 months late, and just chills instead of working 10 times harder like the #2 kid. May even have friends and not have a stuck-up attitude. May even have a boyfriend/girlfriend.

K maybe not that last one, but hey, one can dream
Student 1: Dude that chick studies way too much
Student 2: Yeah she def does, even on Friday and Saturday nights
Student 1: She's probably gonna be valedictorian
Student 2: Lol sucks to be her
Student 1: Lol

Student 1: Dude that kid must study all the time and have no friends to get so smart
Student 2: No dude, he's a major slacker and he's pretty alright and legit
Student 1: Oic
Student 2: Ya
Val: 'sup bros
Student 1: 'sup dude
Student 2: I heard you were gettin' it
Val: Nah I'm definitely not gettin' it from anyone, being smart doesn't count for shit with the ladies
Student 1: Damn
Student 2: Shit nigga
