A floater is a social mastermind who wavers between members of one particular clique or between multiple cliques in general, pitting people against one another and leeching out information without seeming like a threat. A perfected floater will appear incredibly trustworthy and neutral and will play both sides, but in reality, floaters look out for themselves and do whatever possible to keep themselves alive in any given scenario.
After playing both sides, floater Janina decided to attend neither Trichelle's nor Mindy's party, so that neither clique queen would be upset with her.

bits of plasma, protein, or vitreous that are suspended in the vitreous humor (the gelly substance that fills your eye ball)Though they are normal; most people will get them eventually. They can be congential (from birth) or develop (usually as you get older) They are annoying at first, but most people learn to cope with them. They can be best seen on bright days or while looking at a uniform object, such as the sky.
These floaters are distracting me!
