Things overheard at Urban

Emma Draisin, Features Editor

The Urban school of San Francisco has an abundance of strong opinionated voices, and many students are not afraid to speak whatever wacky and weird thoughts come to their minds. This deluge of voices makes way for an entertaining eavesdropping opportunity. I have taken it upon myself to bring the readers of the Urban Legend a few of the titbits overheard throughout  Urban’s halls and classrooms. Read, and appreciate the humor, drama, and perhaps even wisdom of the unsuspecting students below.

Overheard at 5 pm, on day 1 of the Junior Retreat, one boy to a group of boys: “Ferb [from Phineas and Ferb] is my celebrity crush. Tall, dark, and handsome.”

Overheard at dusk, day 1 of the Junior Retreat: 

“Why would you ever need a green light? You’re not f**kin’ Gatsby.”

Overheard at 11 am, Day 3 of the Junior Retreat:
