Westfield High School students anonymously share the best things they have overheard in school, inspired by the Instagram account OverheardNY. The second edition of the series.
October 5, 2021
In the previous Words of Westfield story, I gave background to the inspiration behind these articles; the OverheardNY Instagram account. The account posts multiple overheard quotes daily, constantly delivering a quick laugh to its followers’ feed.
After the immense amount of quotes WHS students and myself have overheard throughout the school, it was only fitting that we follow in the account’s footsteps and share more eavesdropped content.
When sending out Google forms and listening in the hallways, you truly never know what you are going to come across. It is the lack of context and pure confusion the quotes bring you that makes them that much better.
To share your own overheard quotes for next month’s Words of Westfield, submit them to the link in our Instagram bio @whslantern.
Below are the best-overheard quotes from WHS:
