“They think he might have Schizophrenia.”

11 Of The Weirdest Things I’ve Heard In High School Halls
Erin Wittkop

Anyone that has walked through the halls of a high school for more than five minutes will be able to tell you that high schoolers say a lot of weird things. So, at the beginning of my senior year, I decided to start a list in the notes of my phone of all the weird things I heard in school, whether I heard it in passing in the halls or one of my friends said it. In total, the list was well over 50 quotes long, but some of them didn’t make sense anymore, and some of them probably never made sense. I worked the list down and added whatever context I could remember and I now present you with a list of 11 of the weirdest things I’ve heard in high school.

1. “Yeah, they think he has Schizophrenia.”

I remember walking down the hallway when I heard this one. There was zero context since I only heard this in passing but it was quite interesting. Who might have Schizophrenia? Who is “they”? Does he know that he might have Schizophrenia?

2. “This is a terrible toilet.”

This wasn’t that much of a surprise to me. I heard this standing in the bathroom one day and wholeheartedly agreed right away. When you have to flush a toilet 10 times before it actually flushes, you know it’s a terrible toilet.

3. “It’s just a finger injury.”

I don’t remember who said this, but I remember they said it very rudely to someone who said they couldn’t write their essay because of their injury. I don’t remember whose side I was on though.

4. “My mom told me last week that I was supposed to be aborted.”

This one sparked so many questions in my head. Why did your mom tell you this? Did you ask her? How did that even come up in a conversation? Is the relationship between you two okay?

5. “My dad plays ping pong, but he also has nipple rings.

These are two things that I never really wanna hear about anyone’s dad, but also, looking at the kid who said it, it kind of made sense. Also, does the playing ping pong excuse the nipple rings or do the nipple rings excuse the ping pong playing.

6. “Did you bring cocaine?”

Okay, so don’t worry too much, this was in reference to someone’s party and not whether or not someone brought cocaine to school. But also, why are high school kids talking about cocaine? I thought that was something only 5e kids on ‘Gossip Girl’ actually did.

7. “I could have cut my eye out.”

This was said when someone threw a paper airplane—don’t ask—across the room and it went about three feet in front of this person’s face. No, it could not have almost cut their eye out.

8. “I have, like, a fetish for popping pimples. Okay, so it’s not a fetish, it’s more of a kink, but...”

This was said in the middle of my creative writing class and I still cannot scrub that memory or this quote from my head, so the rest of you will have to suffer with me.

9. A girl named Katelyn, “My Spanish teacher calls me Brittany.”

We were having a conversation about all the wrongs names we’ve been called and Katelyn had this to say. This was in the middle of the school year. Brittany and Katelyn aren’t even close.

10. “Did you know that the plural of uterus is uteri?”

I don’t remember where or in what context this was said, but I also don’t know where or in what context this would be used. Also, fun fact!

11. “Okay, but a long time ago, a furry made a wish for anthropomorphic animals to be real and kangaroos were made.”

This was said by the same girl as the pimple popping one and also in my creative writing class. I don’t know a lot about furries, so I’m not 100% sure if this is accurate or just rude, but I thought it was funny for some reason.

I’m sure not a lot of these make sense, but this is what it’s like to be in high school. I feel like, as I reflect on the past three years I’ve spent there, nothing really sums up my high school experience quite like this list.

119 People Reveal How The Pandemic Has Affected Their Love Lives, And Honestly... Relatable

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

When it comes to romance, in particular, people are all handling things differently and there's no "right way" of making it through, regardless of your relationship status (single, taken, married, divorced, you name it). So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

Preview These Top Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020 Picks — From Luxury Purses To Skincare

Currently 3 million people viewing the Stella McCartney purse I absolutely must have.

Online shopping has been a guilty pleasure of ours for years, but now more than ever it's been a shopping lover's outlet for all our home redecorating projects and resort wear we're purchasing for that trip we had to cancel.

One of my favorite places to (virtually) window shop has always been Nordstrom. I admittedly can't afford to go on sprees there often, but I still get a high off of adding things to my cart I know I'll never actually end up buying. But sometimes, that's not enough — that's when I, like the masses of luxury-, beauty-, fashion-, and decor-lovers around the world count the days down to the annual Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

5 Things That 'Shameless' Got Wrong About Bipolar Disorder

There is so much more than Ian and Monica lead viewers to believe.

"Shameless" is a hit television series that airs across the world, for my own personal viewing on Netflix. While the show is a major hit, people aren't talking about the issues in the portrayal in the "mental health" category. Ian and Monica are both pretty important characters with bipolar disorder (BD). There are, however, five major flaws with what their bipolar looks like.

Rihanna is known for many things: her music, fashion, makeup, and now skincare. As a makeup artist myself, I can confidently say that she rocked the makeup world when she released her makeup line in 2017 and has been influencing the beauty world ever since.

Trying some of her makeup products myself, I know that she doesn't skimp on quality, and even though some of her products may be a little pricey, trust me, you get what you pay for.

Friends, no one needs to be reminded that the COVID-19 pandemic rages on in the U.S. Frankly, this is because we have all collectively decided not to do the one simple thing that was asked of us and wear a mask.

I could make this a very boring article, and berate you with facts and statistics and the importance of wearing a mask, but I have opted against that for both of our sakes. Instead, I will attempt to reach you in another way. You might not care about a disapproving look from me, but from Nick Miller? Maybe that will be enough to change your mind.

I don't want to point fingers or call anyone out, but it seems as though since the school year came to a close and summer officially started, more and more people began to care less and less about coronavirus (COVID-19).

I understand that eventually you have to get on with your life and cannot live in isolation forever, but people are still dying, cases are still increasing, and COVID is clearly not going anywhere for the time being.

- Though as a little girl, I had the silkiest, softest hair that would get compliments everywhere I went, since I turned about thirteen I've since had coarse, dry hair no amount of deep conditioning masks or sulfate-free shampoo could fix.

- I started using the Raincry's Condition Boar Bristle Brush several months ago, and while I noticed that my hair had been softer, silkier, and shinier than it had ever been, I didn't make the connection because I never thought a simple hairbrush could make any difference in my hair texture.

- I will be the first to admit that I thought it was ridiculous to spend nearly a hundred dollars on a hairbrush, but this one eliminates the need for me to use any heat tools or styling products on it.

- I put some oil or a serum in my hair when it's wet, brush my hair with the boar bristle brush once it's dry, and end up with the lowest maintenance, shiniest hair I've had since I was 8 years old.

The NBA is back, and for basketball fans, like myself, it has been the BEST news we have heard since COVID-19 shutdown play indefinitely. I mean, come on, we need to see if James Harden can once again perform so well he has back-to-back 50 point games, Kawhi can lead another team to the championship title, and whether Giannis is going to be back-to-back MVP... among like 500 other things running through our heads!

In the midst of all of the amazing statistics and records that these players are breaking, though, we also just love the NBA because well, there are some pretty good looking guys out there. Here are the 19 hottest NBA players (in no particular order) you would totally let slam dunk on you now that the NBA has returned.
