The Central Trend

Hazel Bentley

Hazel Bentley, Junior Writer

Hazel is a freshman that has decided to embark on the journey that is The Central Trend. She often finds herself with her best friends laughing to the point of crying and listening to music. When she is not with her friends she will often find herself enfolded in the pages of a romance book. Her love for reading and Gilmore Girls has brought her to room 139 where she spends her sixth hour writing about whatever is most important to her. She is panicky to take part in The Central Trend, but also very intrigued to start a new path in her life.

Could read over and over: The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid.

Music that makes her feel something no one else can: "Dead Man Walking" by Brent Faiyaz - a song that deserves all the hype.

Her favorite Pinterest board: 'Rando' A very much satire board shared with Marley - one of her best friends.

On Nov. 4, I got my phone taken away from me for one night, and for the whole night, I thought ‘this is the most stupid punishment ever.’ At 5 p.m., my dad was going to arrive at my mom’s house...

Netflix is truly popping off right now, and The Watcher is part of that. From the amazing acting to the twists and turns of this show, I truly believe that this is the best Netflix has done in a while.  And...
